Harvest events planned throughout Paso Robles this October
More than 100 events planned throughout the month of October
– October is wine harvest month in Paso Robles, which brings individual harvest celebrations at the area wineries throughout the month. Harvest happens only once a year, so the events are as unique as the vintage with vineyard tours through the fall colors, winemaker dinners featuring autumnal flavors, music events into the cool evenings, as well as grape stomps. These events and more await during Paso Robles Wine Country Harvest Wine Month in October.
In years past, “Harvest Wine Weekend” was celebrated on the third weekend of October. With harvest being as busy as it is, having an event on a single designated weekend is a challenge. “Harvest Wine Month” now gives wineries more freedom with events happening all through the month of October. This includes more than 100 different events. Paso wine fans can search by day, activity, or winery in the online Harvest Wine Month search tool.
Here are some examples of events:
Cass Winery: grape stomp and tacos, live music, extended hours
Enjoy an all-you-can-eat taco buffet and grape stomp (Oct. 15) the afternoon away. Tickets include the first glass of wine and tacos as attendees kick off their shoes and stomp. Throughout the month of October enjoy live music and extended hours at the Cass Café and Tasting Room every Friday and Saturday.
Epoch Estate Wines: chef’s table series with Chef Matthew Roberts
