ROCK-Rs (including last minute sign-ups) began showing up ready to party:
First place prizes for both Best Rock-R Chicks and Best Rock-R Dude went to “KISS”… Awesome!

The Jim Townsend Band (aka, “Screaming Jimmy”) kicked out classic rock (including many requests) which were clear crowd pleasers.

The wine began to flow freely on this gorgeous Autumn evening, and ultimately about 100 Rock-Rs
and Groupies joined in the fun… has it been a long time since YOU’ve Rock ‘n Rolled?

Good Friends, Good Wines, and Good Food make Good Times! So Down Home Catering busted out “da kine taco bar, bro”.

As soon as their hunger was quenched, Rock-Rs shouted for karaoke, guitar hero and dance contests to get underway. We were ready to rock and Dean got DJ Roberto spinnin’.

Stiff competition was lightened by upbeat song choices and a very supportive audience. Winners were awarded movie DVDs that rock.

With Rockin’ R’s traditional “all skate” group karaoke rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” the offical party ends, and the off-the-hook hard rockin’ begins. No time to be shy!

Firepits and cool Paso Robles night air are a great way to take it down a notch, as is a little re-visit to the wine and taco bars. But while the catering crew looks done…

R-lovely tasting staff seems ready to keep it rollin’! …so we could all spend a bit of time with friends, both old and new.

Most people left by 11:30pm, or 12:45am, or 3:15am… but a few hardy souls took Dean up on his pledge to be “the last man standing”, and hung around until 5:15am, just before the sun came up. Whoa…

…Now THAT is the spirit of Rockin’ R Winery!

Yes, designated drivers, taxi cabs, RVs and camping on the winery land meant another safe and wonderful event enjoyed by Rock-Rs of all ages!

From R-winery to all of R-Fans, THANK YOU for making this event another fantastic success!
