Harvest marks the end of the growing season and social importance of this event makes it the focus of many seasonal celebrations. For the central coast of California, such an event is the Harvest Wine Weekend in Paso Robles. The 2013 Harvest Wine Weekend will take place October 18 – 20, with more than 130 participating wineries. This is an opportunity for wine enthusiasts and novices alike, to enjoy the fruits of the winemakers’ labor and taste the new vintages. Paso Robles is idyllic at this time of year with grape leaves changing colors and expected temperatures in the mid to high 70s.

Many wineries will have special tastings, live music, winemaker dinners and much more. However, some wineries are getting creative in 2013, bringing new and different activities, educational opportunities and hands-on fun for Harvest Wine Weekend.

1140 Pine Street, Downtown Paso Robles • 805.237.0799

Deep in the hills of westside Paso, there is a group of winemakers
crafting small lots of critically acclaimed wines that rarely reach the public eye before being sold out.
Now four of Paso’s most lauded, up-and-coming winemakers have joined together to form the collective
tasting room, Paso Underground. Join the winemakers at their “garage” space in Downtown Paso Robles
to taste wines from Aaron, Clos Solene, Edmond August and Turtle Rock Vineyards. Each winemaker
produces less than 500 cases each year, utilizing fruit from the very best vineyards in
Paso Robles. Open by appointment and on select weekends until sold out
