Honestly, we don’t even know what to tell you about Cypher that Christian, the owner, winemaker, marketer, can’t tell you better! He stands out as one of Paso’s true characters in the wine business and no shit, he truly understands all aspects of the business.
Christian has had some insane blends one of which had up to roughly 10 varietals in it! He does some insane marketing, and comes across as this brazen and brash wine guy…but you know what? He’s got a vision and he has the gonads to bring that vision to fruition.
As you may know, Artisan Restaurant throws Monday Night Suppers during the Winter months that feature a local winery paired with a local food source. The result is number one, a great party! You’ll also find some of the most incredible dishes and terrific wines, all together served up to you family style.
What Did Cypher Winery Pour?
On this night at Artisan’s Monday Night Supper Christian poured:
Grenache/ Mourvedre/ Zinfandel/ Grenache Blanc “Pistil” Rose 2010
Grenache Blanc 2010
Mourvedre “El Pelon” 2009
And there was a fourth pour that we were too drunk to take notes on…yes…it happens sometimes when we’re having fun.
Anyway, enough about us and back to Christian…bottom line is he’s a cool cat. We are huge fans of people that choose to stand up outside the box and grab the reigns! He’s one of THOSE people…he stands out in a crowd…he lives out loud; something we should all do.
Thanks to Artisan Paso Robles, Cypher Winery, and Windrose Farms for such a great Monday Night Supper!!
