April 29th is the 150th Arbor Day, and Vina Robles Vineyards & Winery is celebrating and inviting wine lovers nationwide to do the same.
Join the Paso Robles estate in combating deforestation globally simply by opening a bottle of The Arborist. This innovative Syrah-based blend is a consistent critic favorite and Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice, yet retails for just $20. The blackberry and bramble scented cuvée is an homage to creative blends from Paso Robles and presents bright, fruit-forward flavors accented by spice and a luscious, silken texture on the palate.
The Arborist is dedicated to Vina Robles’ founder Hans Nef and named for the arborist who saved the life of the iconic 300+ year-old oak tree featured on the label. Mr. Nef’s admiration and respect for the native flora of California’s Central Coast led to saving the legacy oak in 2014, which has made a full recovery and stands high among the vines today.
Together with One Tree Planted and the Arbor Day Foundation, the multi-generational winery has planted over 21,000 trees as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability in Paso Robles and beyond. Since 2014, Vina Robles has planted a tree with a portion of the proceeds of every bottle sold of The Arborist Red Blend – a commitment the family-owned winery plans to continue in perpetuity.
