PCA Tour to Marechal Winery
March 17, 2018
Story and photos by Obie Silverwood
Well, it was another vintage wine tour producing a barrel of good times. Our eleven Porsches and one guest Corvette
staged under a sunny sky in Clovis at Starbucks at Fowler and Herndon Avenues. Included in the mix was Randall
Plaugher’s new 911 Targa, fresh off the showroom floor.
Handshakes and hugs done, liability forms signed and maps distributed, we headed off on Highway 168 into the
foothills, taking Sample Road to Pittman Hill Road to Watts Valley Road and back down into the north Sanger
farmlands, arriving at our destination – Marechal Vineyards, which had set tables for our basket lunches and a private
tasting of five varietals.
In addition to good wines, Marechal regularly stages holiday and theme dinners (catered by Rev’s of Clovis) and
summer music concerts. A thank you goes to Marechal owner, Josh Marshall, and his staff for accommodating our
group, and for bringing a great new entertainment, culinary and wine venue to the area.
And, as always, thank you to Richard Webb for the excellent tour maps.
