If you love wine, specifically Paso Robles wine, then you know that the 35th Annual Paso Robles Wine Festival is coming up! It runs May 18 through May 21, with events occurring throughout the Paso Robles region. As your Central Coast real estate agent, allow me to fill you in on important details, so you can purchase tickets and plan for the events that sound most appealing to you!
The Grand Tasting event takes place Saturday, May 20, at Downtown Paso Robles City Park. From noon to 4 p.m., you can join more than 70 wineries as they come together to showcase their delicious wines. They are arranged by “regions,” such as Bordeaux-style, Rhone-style, Zinfandel and so on. There will also be food samples and local artisan merchants this year!
While you sample wine, munch on food and browse among local artist goods, you can enjoy the sounds of live music, provided in the picnic and gazebo area. Ricky Montijo & The Mojitos will perform on the Main Stage, and Guitar Circus will perform in the Gazebo. For a list of all of the participating wineries, culinary teams and artisan merchants, check out these Grand Tasting details.
Friday evening, May 19, you can head to Downtown City Park for the RESERVE Event! From 4 to 6:30 p.m., you can join 74 wineries and a selection of local restaurants as each winery offers two of their best wines. Categories include Reserve, Library, White/Rose or Futures. These may be some of the best wines you ever sample! They will be perfect paired with culinary treats from local restaurants. Get the list of participating wines and restaurants in the RESERVE Event details.
A Winemaker Seminar will take place Saturday morning, May 20, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Paso Robles Inn Ballroom.
