Alas, a fine annual wine event in Central California is no more. In an email message and accompanying announcement on the Hospice website, the founders of the Hospice du Rhone event in Paso Robles, Calif. said they would be “discontinuing” the three-day event and focusing on more intimate gatherings. This is a big loss for lovers of Rhone varietals as well as the Paso Robles area, which has been riding a wave of momentum as a wine region in recent years. Good luck in your future endeavors from the ‘Zilla – The Hospice du Rhone will be missed. Additional coverage can be found here.
