Our friends at Burbank Ranch Winery & Bistro in downtown Paso Robles recently held a Grand Opening Celebration for the books. From 5:00 until well into the evening, the comfortable tasting room and bistro at 1240 Park Street was packed bumper-to-bumper with nearly 200 foodies and wine lovers eager to taste Chef Nicholas Nolan’s passed appetizers paired with the winery’s award-winning, globally-inspired wines.
Small bites included salmon cakes with crème fraiche and Meyer lemon, shrimp fritters with avocado, fried pork belly with white bean puree and poached apple, and delectable lamb meatballs with eggplant jam, roasted tomatoes and green olives.
Burbank Ranch Owners, Fred and Melody Burbank, welcomed guests and spoke during ribbon cuttings with the Templeton, Paso Robles, and Atascadero Chambers of Commerce.
Congratulations to all involved in getting Burbank Ranch Winery & Bistro off the ground and flying high!
