For the third straight year, premium cigars AND wine will be featured in the county’s premiere cigar and wine event: Crush & Roll West. Hundreds are expected to turn out September 16 and 17 at the Paso Robles Fairgrounds to taste the best premium wines and cigars in the world. Cigar and wine tasting and cigar rolling demonstrations will entertain and delight, as cigar manufacturers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras and Costa Rica will be on hand to provide their hand crafted cigars.
For even more fun, we will feature an exciting inaugural poker tourney with great prizes. There will also be entertainment, raffles of cigars, wines and accessories, and educational seminars.
Cost for the 2-day event is just $125 per person and will include wine and cigar tasting, music, live and silent auctions, raffles, seminars, a commemorative wine glass, and more.
Crush & Roll is quickly becoming one of the most popular cigar festivals, and with good reason. It’s attracting COUPLES. Why? Because the festival attracts wine connoisseurs who find out that they also like cigars, and cigar aficionados who enjoy vino. “I am always pleasantly surprised by how many wine drinkers are newly exposed to fine handmade cigars and how many cigar smokers are newly exposed to premium wines. Each year I speak to more people who have smoked their very first cigar at our event,” says David “Doc” Diaz, one of the event promoters. “There are so many similarities between the two industries: both are harvestable products, both are blended, fermented, aged, and can be enhanced with proper aging. These are two artisanal crafts and they make excellent partners.”
The festival is priced right too. Tickets are $125 and get you cigars, wine, and a one-year complimentary membership to Cigar Rights of America (one of the event’s sponsors) and all the other festivities of a great event. Part of the proceeds for Crush & Roll West will go to this year’s benefactor: Project Mañana, a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to bettering the lives of impoverished children, their families and communities through nutrition, education, and guidance.
