If you live in California, particularly along the beautiful Central Coast, it is safe to say you probably have not yet experienced a true winter and probably have no intention of doing so, at least not any time soon. In fact, you can’t help but embrace the iconic sunny and 75 degree weather almost year round. That being said, when the temperatures do start to drop for those few short winter months, most Central Californians can’t help but dream about the warm, sunny summer days ahead.
Fortunately for Paso Robles residents, most of their summer and winter activities manage to coincide, despite the difference in seasons. Like many other popular community events, wine tasting is offered year round.
On Saturday, Jan. 14, from 2 to 5 p.m., community members will have the opportunity to celebrate winter on the Central Coast with the Winter Wine Stroll, another one of the city’s quarterly wine strolls.
This winter 16 different tasting rooms all throughout downtown Paso Robles will participate and open their doors to the public. Each individual visit will include a hand-crafted wine and a unique pairing to go with it, along with a keepsake glass as well.
For just $30, wine enthusiasts from both near and far will have the opportunity to embrace Paso Robles for all that it is — a quaint small, historic town that is luckily able to celebrate and enjoy wine from various family owned and operated wineries all year long.
“Wine (compared to other alcoholic beverages) has a long, rich history and every day consumers are learning how approachable it can be,” said Cecily Parrish Ray, general manager at Parrish Family Vineyard, one of the stroll’s participating wineries. “There is a wine for every season and occasion.”
Tickets can be found at BrownPaperTickets.com. Be sure to register soon, but keep in mind tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. For questions regarding the Winter Wine Stroll, go to downtownpasowine.com.
