The Garagiste Wine Festival returns to Paso Robles for the seventh year in a row November 10th – 12th. Celebrating the passion and spirit of the garagiste winemaker, the festival features over 60 of California’s best micro-wineries, pouring over 200 wines made from over 30 different grape varieties. Over a quarter of the winemakers are pouring for the very first time at the festival which was recently dubbed “tasting nirvana” by the LA Times. Tickets are on sale now at http://californiagaragistes.com/buy-tickets/.
“We are proud to continue to be the home of the exploding micro-winery movement in California and to bring more and more of these cutting-edge wineries from across California to Paso Robles,” said Garagiste Festival Co-founder, Doug Minnick. “Unlike other wine events that are geographically or varietal focused, The Garagiste Festival offers a wide variety of wines, styles, and regions. And because our winemakers aren’t concerned with getting their product onto supermarket shelves, they are free to explore their winemaking passions, which makes for an absolutely unparalleled and exciting range of cutting-edge wines.”
This year’s three-day festival includes its popular ‘Rare and Reserve’ event (this time with Tapas!); its epic Grand Tasting at the Paso Fairgrounds; the rollicking Keep It Rockin’After Party, with band High Voltage and local craft beers; and the return of the Garagiste Paso Passport day, which offers discounts and events to festival attendees at garagiste wineries throughout the area. The festival’s signature tasting seminars also return to explore the remarkable diversity of the Paso Robles area, this time focusing on locally grown and vinified Rhone and Bordeaux grape varieties. Moderated by Garagiste Festival co-founder, KRUSH radio host and Golden Triangle Wines winemaker, Stewart McLennan, the seminars are part of the festival’s VIP package and also feature Rendarrio Vineyards, Vinemark Cellars, Brecon Estate and Sans Lieg.
