WHAT TO EXPECT:

Your tour guide will pick you up directly at your accommodations near downtown Paso Robles between 9:45a – 10:30a.

Once everyone is on board, we’ll quickly do introductions and get on the road to our first stop!

We’ll start the day deep in the heart of wine country at Willow Creek Distillery, where head distiller Kevin Coulton will walk the group through the distillation process and a sampling of their delicious offerings – including aromatic fruit brandies, whisky, and premium liqueurs.

After your tasting, you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in their barrel room where you can choose between a wood-fired pizza or a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich, accompanied by a side salad and a tasty dessert.

They’ll also have a delicious specialty cocktail available for purchase to enjoy alongside your lunch!

After lunch, we’ll take a short drive to one of the newer distilleries in the area, Donati Distillery.

Here you’ll kick back and relax in their VIP room while tasting through their delicious lineup of quality vodkas, including their newly released Citrine Vodka (produced from grapes & aged in Chardonnay barrels), and a specialty cocktail prepared especially for the weekend.

Finish the day at Azeo Distillery where you’ll taste through their selection of craft spirits – distilled to the Azeotrope, the point where the ethanol cannot be further separated from the water – making them ultra clean, and incredibly delicious.

Their owner/distiller, Ryan Horn, will talk about their methods and philosophy while you taste through their lineup specializing in vodka (made from apples or grapes), rum, apple brandy and brandy.

You’ll finish with a tasty cocktail showcasing their spirits while
