BlendFest Grand Tasting

BlendFest is back behind the locked gates of the Hearst Property in Old San Simeon Village, with a portion of proceeds going to benefit those affected by the Southern California wildfires and mudslides.

The 4th annual event will bring 30 renowned wineries of Paso Robles to the coast, each showcasing three distinct blends. Guests will enjoy spectacular wines, only surpassed by the stunning ocean views at the Hearst property in San Simeon, along the Highway 1 Discovery Route. Note: all pouring is held indoors.
