Serial Wines Tasting Lounge now open at 1226 Park Street

John Anthony Family of Wines has announced the opening of the Serial Wines Tasting Lounge in downtown Paso Robles’ historic Odd Fellow Building. A destination for “high-quality wines representative of Paso Robles’ diverse terroir,” the lounge will bring together the region’s top growers and the John Anthony Family of Wines portfolio for an “experience unlike any other available in the area,” according to a press release.

“The opening of the Serial Wines Tasting Lounge is the culmination of years of winemaking experience, our longtime relationships with the best growers in the area, and our winemaking team’s roots in and knowledge of the Paso Robles region,” said John Anthony Truchard, founder and CEO of John Anthony Family of Wines. “Having produced wines under the Serial label for more than five years, we’re thrilled to finally bring the unique Serial Wines experience to guests in person in downtown Paso Robles, an area that is experiencing a rapid and exciting revitalization.”serial wines 2

Inspired by the diverse Paso Robles growing region and its potential to produce exceptional quality wines, Truchard first started Serial Wines in 2015 in partnership with Executive Winemaker Jeff Kandarian, a Paso Robles native with an understanding of the terroir of the area. Serial Wines debuted its first wine, a Serial Red Blend in 2015. Until now, Serial has only been available for purchase online. Serial Wines is part of the John Anthony Family of Wines portfolio, which also includes John Anthony Vineyards, JaM Cellars, and Weather Wines.

The lounge will feature two distinct tasting options priced at $30 and $45 each. The first tasting highlights the Paso Robles AVA and features five wines including a 2020 Serial Paso Robles Rosé, a 2017 Serial Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, and a 2018 Serial Highlands District Red Blend. The second tasting highlights Paso Robles districts and single vineyards, and features six wines including a 2020 Serial Adelaida District Grenache Blanc, a 2019 Serial Willow Creek District Syrah, and a 2019 Serial Adelaida District Cabernet Sauvignon. The tasting lounge will also offer wines by the bottle and the glass, and a charcuterie and cheese plate to pair with tastings.serial wines 4

The Tasting Lounge was designed by craftsman Richard Von Saal, who has designed notable wine country destinations including JaM Cellars in downtown Napa, the Prisoner Wine Company in St. Helena, and Ghost Block Estate in Oakville. The 2400 square foot space seats 65, offers a private tasting room for special events, and features reclaimed materials, industrial finishes, and prints of the original artwork seen on many Serial bottles.

The Serial Tasting Lounge is located at 1226 Park Street, Paso Robles, CA 93446. Hours of operation are Sunday through Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling (805) 296-3377 or by visiting
