Summer Fun In Paso Robles
Summertime in Paso Robles is a busy affair. From the Mid-State Fair, to horse shows, music concerts at the new Vina Robles amphitheatre, winery events, fun on Lake Nacimiento – the possibilities are endless. Here are three upcoming events that caught our eye at Touring & Tasting. They sound like great fun and will give you a sense of why Paso Robles is such a special place!
Father's Day Passport Weekend | June 15-16, 2013
Highway 46 East Wine Trail, Paso Robles
This Father's Day weekend, take Dad for a ride on the Highway 46 East Wine Trail.
A collection of 13 different wineries invite you to visit over Father’s Day weekend to benefit local nonprofit wildlife educators Zoo To You. For $20, you will receive complimentary tastings and be greeted by a different animal ambassador at every winery. Fun times, prizes, great wine and a memorable experience with Dad are guaranteed on the Highway 46 East Wine Trail. pasorobleswinerieseast.com
Real Men Drink Pink | June 23, 2013 1:00-5:00 PM
Star Farms, San Miguel
Lovers of rosé, this is the wine party for you! The 2nd Annual Real Men Drink Pink party will feature more than 20 of the top rosé producers in Paso Robles plus some of the region’s best food and headline band The English Beat. Enjoy the beach party theme, swim in the half-acre lagoon pool at Star Farms, lounge in hammocks and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards. All proceed go to Cancer Support Community’s Breast Cancer Care Fun and must! charities. This party sounds like the ultimate summer wine experience and a good opportunity for you to get in touch with your “inner pink” self. realmendrinkpink.org
Fork n’ Corks Fest | July 6, 2013 4:00-8:00PM
Halter Ranch Winery, Paso Robles
This must be the coolest hot summer event EVER! Fork n’ Corks Fest 2013 is hosted at the gorgeous Halter Ranch Winery on scenic Adelaida Road. With a “Pit to Plate” food theme (BBQ pit, that is), a mind boggling array of adult beverages including wine, whiskey, gin, beer, port, hard cider, champagne and more, and live entertainment, this could very well be the best ticket of the summer on the Central Coast. Proceeds go to must! charity. This event sells out so purchase your tickets early. pasoforkandcorksfest.com
And this is just the tip of the summer fun iceberg in Paso Robles. We hope to see you at one of these very cool “hot” events. Tell them Touring & Tasting sent you!
