Join us for our first annual Chili cook-off! Click here to buy your tickets.

We had such a blast last year we’ve decided to make it an annual event! Held at our estate vineyards in the Willow Creek AVA of Paso Robles wine country. You’ll sample delectable Chili’s from multiple competitors and be able to vote for your favorite. Come enjoy a day filled with yummy chili’s, shopping local artisans, dancing to the live Music of two excellent local bands and of course our award-winning handcrafted Hoyt Family Vineyards estate wines and some cold beer too!

Take advantage of the early bird special pricing, buy your tickets by August 31 to take $10 off!

A portion of the proceeds support the Wags and Walks non-profit – “finding pets their forever home” – so you get to delight your palate, sip & sample, mix & mingle, boogie, find some treasures, stock your cellar and feel good about helping a great cause, all while relaxing among the vibrant vines and shady giant oaks to soak in the breathtaking views.

Your ticket includes:
Entry to our private estate vineyards
Tasting samples from each chili contestant
A ticket to vote for your favorite
A serving of catered “sides” to go with cups of chili you can purchase from each contestant
Music from both the Narrow Bridge Band – featuring Robi Duganne and The Driftwood Brothers band!

Various fun and games to enjoy throughout the day (corn hole, meet the goats, guessing games to show off your skills and more)
