Avoid Nugent

AtascaderoMay 5, 2014 

Vina Robles just announced its fine choice for a summer concert: Ted Nugent. This is the person who calls President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel.” Nice guy.

You’re welcoming — and paying — this performer with racist and sexist behavior to our county? Why do you encourage his behavior?

I ask all civilized citizens to boycott Vina Robles Winery until it can bring some decent music to North County or at least cancel this event. We have been waiting too many years up here for a great venue and this is what they offer? Yes, I know, I don’t have to go, and you don’t either. I also don’t have to drink its wines, and I encourage you not to as well.

Castoro Cellars has it right. Take a lesson, Vina Robles. Castoro Cellars’ events are truly “community events.”
