Bello by Sandro Nardone is excited to welcome one of Paso Robles' most celebrated winemakers. Edgar Torres of Bodega de Edgar will host an exciting one-night-only dinner on Thursday, July 14. One of Forbes’ three “must visit” wineries on the West side, BdE's recent scores from Wine Enthusiast range from 91-94. Wine Advocate has also scored Edgar’s wines in the 90-94 point range.
Guests will enjoy five courses expertly paired with BdE’s wines, as well as have the chance to meet Torres and hear a bit about the wines and his winemaking process.
Born in Michoacan, Mexico, Torres emigrated to San Luis Obispo County at the age of eight. He began his career in local restaurants, eventually transitioning to the wine industry as his passion grew. Today, Torres’ Bodega de Edgar has a 3,000 case production focused on 100% Spanish varietals as well as several unique blends. The winery focuses on producing wine as naturally as possible using the highest quality fruit.
