I am a huge fan of Paso Robles wine, and my favorite event is the annual Harvest Weekend.
This year Paso Robles’ Harvest Weekend falls on the third weekend of October, October 19 -21st 2018. The perfect time of year to enjoy the mild weather and Paso Robles wine.
What’s so special about Harvest Weekend? Imagine a year of tending wine vines, the culmination of which, results in 24 hour round-the-clock work to get the fruit off the vine at the perfect time to reveal the best of the grape.
All us who live in the area know this is the most hectic time of year for the wineries and their staff. We all hold our breath until that last grape is pulled and harvest is announced as complete. Then, and only then, comes the celebration! This is “Harvest Weekend”!
For all of us who love Paso Robles wines, Harvest Weekend is the time of year to visit for access to new wines served up in a variety of venues. Each winery offers events at their winery during the weekend. We’ve got grape stomps, wild boar BBQ’s, winemaker dinners, vertical tastings, barrel samples, barn dances and live music galore. And while the town and area can get crazy crowded during the May Wine Festival, the Harvest Weekend is another story.
As we get closer to the event, I plan to single out some of my favorite venues and events for you. Keep in touch to learn more about what to do during Paso Robles’ Harvest Weekend. Don’t forget that your source to Paso Robles wine events is www.pasowine.com
