Winemaker Cookoff winners

By Scott Brennan
The Paso Robles Rotary is once again bringing Paso Robles' top winemakers together to compete to see who is the best chef. The 16th Annual Winemakers' Cookoff is Aug. 9 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Paso Robles Event Center. The Rotary Club is limiting attendance to just 1,200 tickets. Tickets are $85 and are on sale now at Eventbright.

"The Paso Robles Winemakers' Cookoff has become one of Paso Robles' most-popular wine, food and music events," says event co-chairperson Bob Fonarow. "Participating wineries pair their grilled culinary creations with their finest wines and compete for both Judges' Choice and People's Choice awards the day of the event."

All proceeds from the event benefit local high school scholarships. Thanks to the event, The Paso Robles Rotary contributed $30,000 to Paso Robles High School scholarships last year. Since the event's inception, over $400,000 in scholarships has been awarded to local high school students. IQMS is returning as the title sponsor of the event.
"The IQMS sponsorship of the Rotary event underscores our company's commitment toward the education and support of our local youth," said Randy Flamm, President and C.E.O. of IQMS. "As we continue to prosper here, our involvement in helping to further the goal of an event like the Cookoff is one way of giving back."
