 Wine Tasting
Don’t miss the Paso Robles Wine Festival at its new location
Four days of wine, food, music and close encounters with local winemakers starts May 19
The Paso Robles Wine Festival began in 1983 with 17 wineries pouring in the Downtown City Park. With wooden planks over barrels and a notion that this cel- ebration could attract visitors to the fledgling wine region, this annual event has lasted the years as Paso’s marquee showcase of the Paso Robles wine region. Due to the pandemic, the last two years have gone without the annual jubilee which gave the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance time to reimagine
how the festival could be elevated into a whole new experience.
Much is new for 2022. There is
a new location and a new moniker. Paso Wine Fest will take place at the Paso Robles Event Center which
offers many built-in amenities in- cluding dedicated parking, conces- sions, restrooms, and shade. What continues is the themed weekend which offers visitors the chance to explore Paso Robles Wine Country with four days of wine tastings, winemaker dinners, live music, and more at the area wineries.
Paso Wine Fest kicks off Thurs- day, May 19 with two Winemaker Dinners at Thomas Hill Organics and The Hatch. Winemakers cruise the floor sharing their wines and stories behind the label, all with lo- cally sourced and harvested cuisine known on offer from these two restaurants.
On Friday, May 20, the
new Paso Starry Night Dinner takes place at the Paso Robles Event Center. This unique dining experi- ence brings the delicious styling of
