Swank N Smith Winery, based in Paso Robles, is only in its 8th year but has garnered many accolades and awards for the wonderful hand-crafted, food-friendly wines they are producing.   You may not recognize the winery as their distribution is very limited but once you taste these wines, you will want to add them to your collection .  We will have the opportunity to taste 5 of these outstanding wines sourced from well established vineyards in Paso Robles and Napa Valley, including three well-aged reds that are drinking beautifully now and will continue to do so for the next 5+ years.  Best of all, each wine is perfectly paired with the authentic Cuban cuisine from the culinary team of El Rincon Criollo. Winemaker/owner Gregg Smith will be on-hand to talk about his wines and his winemaking philosophy.  Attendance will be limited to 30 guests so book your reservations soon to ensure your seats.  Note: This is a once in a lifetime opportunity- 2/2/22 will never come around again!
