Richard K. Sauret Viticulture and Enology Scholarship

The Richard K. Sauret Viticulture & Enology Scholarship provides an opportunity for students desiring to study viticulture or enology at a four year college or university. At the age of 7, Richard Sauret was picking grapes, pruning vines and pulling weeds to help pay for his school clothes.

At 17, he planted his first vines, zinfandel, and since his fruit has gone into wines at the forefront of Paso Robles winery history. In 2002 and 2003 Richard’s Rosenblum Zinfandels were ranked in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines of the year, he was featured in American Vineyard Magazine in 2006, and he was honored twice by California Mid State Fair as the Grower of the Year.

Richard Sauret is truly one of the fathers of the Paso Robles wine industry, and he wishes to support and encourage students pursuing careers in Viticulture & Enology through his Scholarship Fund today.

For more information on his scholarship, please see our available scholarships page.
