Happy Holidays!

This past Friday we had our annual Holiday party, and let me tell you, it was a blast! Castoro rented out the ballroom at the Paso Robles Inn and our wonderful event manager Teresa made sure the party was organized and entertaining. First off, the party had a 1920s theme, which was awesome, especially since a majority of those in attendance were dressed appropriately. There were also poker tables and a live band!

After a wonderful meal, Niels (owner/founder) took some time to thank all of the employees for their hard work and gave an extra special thanks to those who, as of this year, have worked for Castoro ten years and twenty years (Joe Mertens). He went on to tell the story of how Joe turned up for a job interview 20 years ago via bicycle from Cambria to San Miguel, after discovering the winery was not in Templeton! “I saw this guy ride up on a bicycle, and thought wow, this guy is hired,” Niels recalled.

All in all I can truly say it’s wonderful to work with such solid group of people who enjoy being around each other. We’ve all been to the dreaded Holiday party where everyone feels awkward wants out, well the poor employees at the Paso Inn practically had to push us out the door!

As we approach Christmas, Hanukah, new years etc, on behalf of Castoro Cellars, I would like to wish you all the best in whatever you are doing and wherever you are! This a time to be in good spirits with family, friends and loved ones . . . and maybe even a bottle or two of Dam Fine Wine : )

2012 is going to be an exciting year for us, as we will continue to release old favorites and exciting new blends and varietals. We continue to learn and grow each year and we look forward to sharing a new round with you all.

Happy Holidays from the Castoro Crew,



P.S. How cool are our new shirts! “Peace, Love, Castoro”
