Trust Your Gut: Play the Paso Wine and Food Challenge


Enter before tipoff  at 9 am on Thursday, March 15 and get on the Road to Paso Robles

Paso Robles, CA (March 13, 2018) It’s time for the greatest extended sporting event in the world, tourney time! In Paso Robles, the wine community loves basketball, especially college and most importantly the NCAA Tournament. The Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance has paired the excitement of filling out a bracket with wine and food to create a fun way to win a trip to Paso Robles. Wine, food, and basketball fans are encouraged to enter before tipoff time (9 a.m.) on Thursday, March 15.

Have you filled out your bracket yet? This year, Paso Wine is taking away the guesswork and agonizing over whether or not Iona has any chance of upsetting Duke. Picking teams by mascots and colors is nowhere near as fun as picking teams based on what food and wine pair the best. Food and wine pairings are based on a cuisine commonly associated with a school’s local area. Can a beautiful cedar-planked salmon and Pinot Noir (Gonzaga) outduel fried green tomatoes and Pinot Grigio (UNC Greensboro)? Visit www.pasowine.com/wine-food-challenge/ to get on The Road To Paso Robles and fill out a winning bracket. Just trust your gut.
