Wine Festival: Grand Tasting

More than 70 wineries come together in the Paso Robles Downtown City Park to showcase their wines during the Grand Tasting.

Wineries at the Grand Tasting will be arranged by “regions” for a seamless and focused tasting experience: Bordeaux-style, Rhône-style, Zinfandel, Burgundian-style, Italian varieties and Other Wild Wines for your tasting pleasure. Plus, food samples and local artisan merchants.

In the picnic area and gazebo, live music will provide the perfect atmosphere for your wine tasting experience.
