WAV | Paul Lato Wine Dinner with Rob Casey


“From my experience of tasting the finest wines from around the world, all the greatest wines possess authenticity, harmony, and elegance. These are the qualities I constantly try to capture in my wines. The ultimate goal is to create wines that are seamless and textural with enough structure and balance to complement fine cuisine.”
-Winemaker Paul Lato-

Paul Lato is one of Santa Barbara’s finest artisanal winemakers.  Since 2002, he has been crafting outstanding wines from grapes sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Santa Barbara County.  To his good fortune, Paul was discovered early in his career by none other than the wine critic Robert Parker,  who liked his wines and rated them highly.  With Parker’s encouragement and other reviews, Paul has gone on to craft wines that are today highly sought after by knowledgeable consumers and critics alike.  Because of their limited production Paul Lato wines are mainly sold to a mailing list and are never in wide-release.

Our special guest for the evening will be Rob Casey, Sales & Marketing Director for Paul Lato WInes. Rob brings many years experience in wine and hospitality, along with a deep sense of connection to Paul Lato and the vineyards behind these extraordinary, small-production wines.
