Les Deux Chats Cellars is one of a handful of local winemakers that have gone commercial. I would like to introduce Chris and Patty Connolly to residents of Santa Clarita – where they live, Paso Robles – where they get their grapes and to the world beyond – where they may be able to ship their wines to:

We have two incredible “not to be missed events” scheduled for November!

THIS PAST SUMMER
It was a very good summer for us at Les Deux Chats. In July, we received some great news. Our 2009 Benito Dusi Zinfandel won a Gold Medal at the Central Coast Wine Competition!
http://centralcoastwinecomp.com/2011-results-2/. We are very proud that our first commercial vintage won Gold amongst the top Zinfandel producers on the Central Coast! We were also very excited to be invited to pour the wine at the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles. In June we had three amazing wine tasting events. “Vintage Hollywood” in Pacific Palisades, a not-to-be-missed event for wine and food lovers. The “Ojai Valley Wine Festival” was incredible with over 4,000 guests. And in Santa Clarita we poured at the “Vine 2 Wine Classic”. A big thank you goes out to the Fariss’, the Lukas’, Heidi & Chris’ Mom for helping out!!! Stay tuned for info about these events for next year!!
