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, new this year, food samples and local artisan merchants.

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


Main Stage: Ricky Montijo & The Mojitos
Ricky Montijo has become one of the most in-demand artists on the West Coast with vocal talent described by fans to be “it…he has it…”. Soulful, smoky, and an unmatched versatility. His sets boast unique covers and hot originals in the genres of Soul, Rock, Latin, and Funk.

Gazebo: Truth About Seafood Truth About Seafood is a longtime favorite of the Central Coast with a mix of modern and classic rock cover tunes and original music. Influenced by a variety of groups from the Foo Fighters to the Beatles and Red Hot Chili Peppers to Led Zeppelin, Seafood has a vast set list that spans decades of rock in a high energy show.
