2010 Paso Robles Wine Festival
May 21 - 23, 2010
Paso Robles offers wine enthusiasts everything their palate desires; from crisp whites to bold reds, from pure varietals to complex blends you are sure to find a new favorite each time you visit. The discovery of wines and wineries in Paso Robles is a year-long adventure, but only once a year is it packaged for you in a way that can only be described as Paso Robles Wine Festival.
On May 21 – 23, 2010, Paso Robles Wine Country comes together to celebrate the 28th Annual Wine Festival. Beginning the evening of Friday, May 21, select wineries will join together at the RESERVE event in the Paso Robles Downtown City Park to feature their reserve, barrel sample or library wines, as well as present a tasting of power whites and Rosés. Saturday, May 22, is a day packed full with a bevy of activities. Start your morning Downtown enjoying art, entertainment, the local farmers market and scrumptious breakfast options; the perfect preparation for the wine-filled day to come. In the afternoon over 90 wineries reconvene in the Paso Robles Downtown City Park to showcase more than 400 wines at the Grand Tasting. The choices and variety don’t stop at the wines; in addition, music by the Mighty Croon Dogs, artisanal foods, chef demonstrations and the personalities of wine country are there to show you the diversity that Paso Robles Wine Country has to offer.
New elements for the 2010 Paso Robles Wine Festival include a later start and end time for the Grand Tasting (3 - 7 p.m.) as well as the new Wine Country Auction & Dinner that will take place in the new tent in the Park.
Beyond the Park more than 140 wineries will be pulling out the stops to show off their unique individuality; capture a taste of the diverse opportunities available throughout the weekend at over 180 winery events.
