Indian-born entrepreneurs Neeta and Kunal Mittal seduce wine experts, drinkers alike with their wine and spice tasting experience in Downtown Paso Robles.
Wine experts and enthusiasts across the U.S.A. have spoken, and the name on their lips is unanimous: LXV Wine.
USA Today has ranked this premiere Indian-owned winery #7 on its coveted Top Ten Best Tasting Rooms List. Proprietors Neeta and Kunal Mittal are extremely proud to be the only ones to present the wines with unparalleled spice pairings that range from the quintessential Garam Masala to Lapsang Souchong. The tastings fold in exotic notes of rose, cardamom, jasmine, black truffle, and sarsaparilla, amongst others.
“This award has presented an immense moment for the future of LXV as well as the history books,” Neeta Mittal said. “We are thrilled that USA Today has taken notice of what our wine club members have known all along: At LXV, a sensory experience encompasses everything we do.”
The boutique winery—which sources its limited production offerings from the coveted Willow Creek District of Paso Robles—beat out high-caliber nominees from all over the country and impressed a knowledgeable panel of wine and travel experts. Thousands of votes were cast from around the globe, solidifying LXV as a top player in California’s acclaimed wine industry.
The LXV tasting room features a plush, decadent lounge that elevates world-class Rhone, Bordeaux, and Italian wine varietals to a truly multi-sensory height. Currently, at the tasting room, guests are savoring LXV’s 2014 Rising Tempo blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Tempranillo alongside alluring spice pairing of rose hips, rose petals, cardamom, jasmine, cinnamon, sea salt, and cocoa. The 2014 Secret Craving blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Merlot is an ode to the right-bank Bordeaux, and a treat for barbecue lovers who get to pair the wine with the smoky notes of Lapsang Souchong and smoked paprika.
The Mittals’ approach re-frames the entire wine experience as a novel series of events that sequentially awaken the full range of senses to more keenly appreciate wine, frame, and ambiance, all strategically designed for a rousingly pleasurable experience.
