    Pinot and Paella celebrates its 12th year 

    Pinot and Paella 1Festival raises money for Paso Robles youth art foundation

    The 12th annual Pinot and Paella Festival was held Sunday afternoon in Templeton Community Park. Hundreds of attendees strolled from tent to tent, sampling Paso Robles pinots and tasting paella creating by local chefs. The temperature climbed to 99-degrees during the weekend heat wave.

    Live music was provided by the popular world fusion band Incendio. Locals brought beach chairs, relaxed, sipped wine and enjoyed the sunshine.

    Marc Goldberg and Maggie D’Ambrosia of Windward Vineyard are the organizers and founders of the event. “Everything is totally donated,” said an event representative, saying that every chef and every vineyard donates the food, wine and time to help raise money for the organization.

    The event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the foundation over the years.
