Sponsorship Details


Friends of the Paso Robles Rotary Club,

From creating brand awareness, increasing market share, and saying thank you to your key clients, the Paso Robles Rotary Winemakers’ Cookoff is the ideal platform for reaching out to the key decision-makers of the Central Coast and over a thousand wine lovers.

Your sponsorship will continue the winemaker's dedication to education. Over the past several years, the Winemakers' Cookoff has anually awarded over $30,000 in high-school senior scholarships.

Now in our 16th year, this high-profile, must-attend event, is one fundraiser our local winemakers enthusiastically look forward to. As in years past, the exceptional winemakers of the Paso Robles region have very generously donated their time, wine, food, staff and culinary expertise to make this event truly memorable. Part of the fun and excitement has Cookoff wineries vying for coveted the “People’s Choice” and “Judges’ Choice” awards. The competition is expected to be more intense than ever to influence voting by attendees and celebrity judges.

Your financial support insures that the Winemakers’ Cookoff will be better every year. This year we are pleased to offer sponsorships to selected companies and individuals that have been suggested to us by the Winemaker Chefs.

Please consider saying "Yes" to one of the sponsorships below. We hope you are as excited as we are about the prospect of being involved as a contributor to our event. This is a unique opportunity for all of us to return to the community a small portion of our financial success in support of our high school youth.

To become a sponsor, please contact Bob Fonarow (805) 227-4424 or Bob Vilhauer (805) 464-2024.

Our best regards,

Sharon Ross, Chairwoman
Winemakers' Cookoff Committee
