Chateau Julien event launches PoiZ Wine Estate first product release

On Saturday, March 6, 2010 we celebrated the launch of our son's brand, PoiZ Wine Estate at an event held at Chateau Julien Wine Estate. The event was a fashion show that was sponsered by Woogiewoo and is owned by Bobby's good friend Brandon Eaches. The event was a hugh success and food was provided by the world famous Baja Cantina. Bobby's first release is a 2007 Merlot from Monterey County. This is the first of many great vintages from this young winemaker.
