IN EACH GLASS OF PASO WINE, you hold in your hand a vibrant romance; a romance characterized by the capricious Mother Nature and steadfast winemaker. This raucous relationship begins in the vineyard, is nurtured in the winery and flourishes in the bottle. It is only then that this personification of the winemaker’s passion finds its way into our homes, families and favorite memories.
Now in its 29th year, the Paso Robles Wine Festival celebrates wine country by bringing more than 90 wineries to the Downtown City Park. In addition, local artisans and chefs will be found throughout the weekend engaging their cuisine in a dance that highlights the best of both food and wine.
RESERVE, held on the evening of Friday, May 20, will lead you through an exploration of library, reserve, power white/Rosés and futures. This year RESERVE will offer the new opportunity to bid on the wines featured in the category of futures. Winning bidders will reunite with a case of that wine once it has matured through the winemaking process and is ready for release.
Begin Saturday at the Grand Tasting where more than 400 wines join local culinary artists, chef demonstrations and music from the Guy Budd Band beneath the oaks of the Paso Robles Downtown City Park. Then, Saturday evening, join your favorite winemakers as they pull up rare wines from deep within their cellars to accompany a locally-inspired meal and the remarkable auction lots found at the Wine Country Auction & Dinner.
Travel beyond the Park and become encompassed by Paso Robles Wine Country; more than 140 wineries will be hosting events throughout the weekend. Open house festivities, live music, winemaker dinners and more await those looking for the inspiration behind each wine. Submerge yourself in the wines, flavors and expressions of this one-of-a-kind place at the 29th Annual Wine Festival. With so many options awaiting you, now is the time to begin your romance with Paso Robles Wine Country.
