On Thursday, May 18, two dinners take place, starting with Thomas Hill Organics who host Arbuckle Ridge, Ella’s Vineyard, La Perdignus, and ZANOLI. Dinner at The Hatch will bring a few of Paso’s newest wineries in for an all-inclusive family style dinner (wineries being finalized).

Jack Creek Cellars, Le Vigne Winery, Paris Valley Road Estate Winery, Robert Hall Winery, Sextant Wines, and Vino Vargas will all share their sparklers that will be individually paired with small bites by Paris Valley Road’s Chef Joe White.
On Saturday, May 20, from 12 – 4:30 p.m., 115 wineries will sample their wines at the Paso Robles Event Center. Now in its second year at this location, Paso Wine Fest boasts large open spaced tasting tents with individual brand experiences spread out over the expansive venue. Wineries pouring at the festival take special care to bring wines from their portfolio that are sure to delight those in the know and everyone new to Paso Robles wine.
Entertainment a-plenty begins with the The KRUSH 92.5 broadcasting live from the Ponderosa stage. The day’s musical soundtrack comes from two different locations, with The Recipe taking over the Ponderosa Stage with their mix of funk and soul, and DJ Julian Cherry spins wine groovy tunes at the Silo Barn.
