Booker Vineyard My Favorite Neighbor 2015
My Favorite Neighbor is a direct reference to the talented Stefan Asseo of L’Aventure wines. Stefan proved a great mentor when Eric was introduced to the Paso wine industry and our vineyard happens to share a small border with L’Aventure’s estate. This wine will always be a Syrah and Bourdeaux blend and will always be a tribute to our favorite French neighbor!
Booker Vineyard is located on Paso Robles' Westside, immediately joining the famous Stephan Vineyards that produce L'Aventure Wines. The high-density vineyard is mostly Rhone varietals planted on steep hillsides of calcareous shale. The name Booker comes from the two orphan brothers Claude and Dick Booker who had owned the land, as well as hundreds more acres on Paso's Westside. The Booker brothers were Paso's favorite sons, dedicating their lives to being great farmers and humanitarians.
