Pumpkin spice, soft sweaters and cozy red wines! Fall is here, and there’s no better time to visit Paso Robles Wine Country. Uncrowded tasting rooms, sunny skies and festive events—what’s not to love? With the excitement of Harvest season in the air and beautiful vineyards turning green to gold, you’ll savor the best this award-winning wine region has to offer. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go to Paso Robles Wine Country this fall!
Paso Robles Wine Country is an overwhelmingly friendly wine region all year round. So what happens during the off-season when less crowds appear? Well, you can expect to experience all that famous hospitality, and then some! Enjoy super relaxed tastings hosted by staff trained to guide you through a lineup of diverse varieties. Bella Luna invites folks to a fall-themed winemaker dinner on Oct. 22 featuring a seasonal-fresh meal paired with newly-released wines. With less intense crowds, you’ll never feel rushed or frazzled (not that this is ever our style, really). Around here, we prefer to take our time enjoying every last drop of the off-season. Come see why fall is the best time to stake your spot in Paso.
Rain, sleet, snow—what’s that? In Paso Robles Wine Country, most days are sunny with a predictable forecast of cloudless blue skies! Even in fall, our weather is supremely mild, even hot, if you can believe that. What does that mean for you? No need to pack heavy fall jackets for your day of tasting. Although the region does cool down considerably as the sun sinks, you can rest assured that your afternoon tasting adventure will be clear, bright and cheerful. At Absolution Cellars, you can enjoy a sunny, seaside tasting on Morro Bay’s vibrant Embarcadero. That’s right—a perfect beach day in Autumn. You won’t want to forget your shades and SPF!
Come on down! Paso Robles Wine Country is home to a fabulous downtown epicenter that you’ve just got to experience this fall. Charming, quaint and totally walkable, you’ll find dozens of tasting rooms, boutique shops, art galleries all decked out in festive cozy vibes. Maybe we’re biased, but there’s nothing more dreamy than strolling arm-in-arm through Downtown City Park on a crisp autumn evening, retro street lamps illuminating your way. Copia Vineyards’ downtown tasting room is a welcome oasis to unwind after a day of exploring Paso on foot. Kick back in the lounge and enjoy a 60-90 minute guided tasting that promises to leave you feeling educated and refreshed.
Fall isn’t just the start of the holidays—it also marks the beginning of Harvest in Paso Robles Wine Country! What exactly is Harvest? This is the magical time when grapes have ripened to perfection and winemakers are busy picking fruit from morning till night. Don’t worry, our wineries won’t put you to work (not unless you want to). In fact, there’s plenty of fun Harvest events to enjoy this time of year, including winemaker dinners and more. Savor a celebratory fall Harvest feast at Caelesta Wines, Vineyard + Truffiere this Nov. 12 featuring a spread of pork belly and black truffles grown onsite. Drool! If you’ve never visited Paso Robles Wine Country during this exhilarating (and delicious) season, you’re in for a real treat.
We’re all looking to shop smart when it comes to holiday gifts, right? Delight everyone on your list with Paso Robles wine (and save your wallet a little pain, too). Take advantage of incredible deals starting during the fall season. Whether you’re looking for budget-friendly deals on cases, magnums or special occasion vintages, you’ll find this golden opportunity ripe for taking in Paso Robles Wine Country. Wine club memberships make great gifts, too! At Harmony Cellars, both the giver and the receiver reap the rewards.
