Here in Paso, we take winemaking pretty seriously. In fact, we hold a
festival every year to honor our grapes and the wines they create. We call it
simply: Wine Festival. This year
will be our 31st Annual Wine Festival, May 17 - 19
— a time to unwind and enjoy the finest food and wine Paso Robles Wine Country
has to offer. 

More than 40 wineries offer one
wine within the categories of Reserve, Library, White/Rosé or Futures during
the Friday, May 17 Reserve
Event and Auction
from
3:30 - 6 p.m
. in the Downtown City Park. Bid on select wines at the Auction, as select wineries
offer a premium taste of Paso Robles in this creative spin on a silent auction,
with the top five bidders for each wine receiving a case! Auction wineries
include:

Start Saturday, May 18 with the
fun and educational Winemaker Seminar from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. at the Park Ballroom.  Following the seminar, more than 40 wineries will
showcase their wines alongside culinary samplings during the Grand
Tasting
from 12 – 4
p.m.
in the Downtown City Park. New this year, wineries will be
organized into five “regions” for tasting: Bordeaux, Rhône, Zinfandel, Burgundy
and Other Wild Wines for your tasting pleasure.
