For the 5th straight year, wine, cigars, craft beer, entertainment, poker, seminars, auctions, raffles and much more will be featured at the West Coast’s premiere cigar and wine event: Crush & Roll West. Hundreds are expected to turn out September 6 and 7 at the Paso Robles Fairgrounds to taste some of the best premium wines and cigars in the world. The event will feature Central Coast wines, but we will have wineries from as far north as Napa and Sonoma and south to the Santa Maria Valley.
Crush & Roll West is a two-day event starting on Friday, September 6 from 6:00–11:00 PM. Friday’s casual mixer will feature cigar, wine and beer tasting and will feature our third annual poker tourney with great prizes. There will also be live entertainment, free food, raffles, a free commemorative wine glass and a live auction for our charity: North County Women’s Shelter & Resource Center.
On Saturday, September 7 from 1:00–6:00 pm, Crush & Roll West will bring on 50 different vendors and exhibitors including 20 cigar vendors, 20 wine and beer vendors and 10 lifestyle vendors of various types. Cigar 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.
Included in Saturday’s fare will be wine tasting with some of the best wines and wineries in California. Of course there will be music, raffles, educational seminars, a commemorative wine glass, goodie bag and much more. This year will even include a chance to serve on the 2013 Crush & Roll Magnus Port “Crushing Crew,” with Jeff Steele of Roxo Port Cellars leading the crush team.
Included in this year’s ticket package is a new “Social Ticket.” The Social Ticket is for those who want to enjoy all the benefits of the Crush & Roll West event, but who don’t smoke cigars. According to David “Doc” Diaz, one of the event promoters, “the festival attracts wine connoisseurs who find out that they also like cigars, but if they don’t, we now have a 2-day non-cigar ticket.
This year’s charity will be the North County Women’s Shelter & Resource Center, whose mission is threefold: (1) To provide a safe environment with related services to women and their children who are victims of domestic violence, (2) To provide individuals and families in crisis with information, referrals, and low-cost counseling and, (3) To provide education and assistive services targeted at domestic violence prevention and intervention in the wider community of San Luis Obispo County. A portion of all event proceeds will go to the Women’s Shelter.
