Bela Lugosi, Jr. will be at the Film Festival

to present the Bela Lugosi wine, and to do

a Q & A after the screening of his dad's

famous 1931 movie DRACULA...

Although Count Dracula never “drank” wine, Bela

Lugosi, the man, had impeccable taste in wines. With

the creation of the Bela Lugosi brand wines, the Lugosi

family pays tribute to their patriarch, a man of distinction,

while acknowledging the icon that will forever be –Dracula.
This 2007 vintage was produced exclusively for Lugosi

Wines by the Domingo Hermanos Winery in Argentina.

 

 

Bela Lugosi, the man and the legend, is forever linked

to Count Dracula. He was an American film pioneer who

created his unique characterization on the Broadway

stage in 1927 and brought it to the screen in 1931.

"Winemaking and wine grape growing that was introduced by the Franciscan Friars beginning circa 1790

The first to farm wine grapes was a Frenchman, Pierre Hypolite Dallidet, who arrived in San Luis Obispo

in 1853.  Commercial winemaking was introduced in the late 1870s when Indiana rancher Andrew York

began planting vineyards on his 240-acre homestead. Within a few years, he found that the vines were

yielding more than he could market, prompting him in 1882 to establish Ascension Winery, known today

as York Mountain Winery."

 

"The Paso Robles wine region gained more notoriety when Ignace Paderewski, the famous Polish statesman

and concert pianist, visited Paso Robles for the hot springs that brought relief to his ailing hands. He became

enchanted with the area and purchased 2,000 acres. In the early 1920s, he planted Petite Sirah and Zinfandel

on his Rancho San Ignacio vineyard in the Adelaida area. When Prohibition ended, Paderewski’s wine was

made at York Mountain Winery. The wines produced from grapes grown on Rancho San Ignacio went on

to become award-winners and Paso Robles’ reputation as a premier wine region grew." from pasowine.com
