Wineries celebrate zinfandel this weekend
Vintage Paso: Zinfandel and Other Wild Wines
Celebrate the region’s heritage grape and more March 14-16
The Zinfandel Festival has been re-branded to the new “Vintage Paso: Zinfandel and Other Wild Wines.” It’s going to be March 14-16, 2014. Paso Robles, named Wine Enthusiast’s 2013 Wine Region of the Year, annually pays tribute to its heritage grape variety, welcoming wine lovers to over 120 participating wineries for an abundance of unique events. New in 2014, the name of the festival has been changed to continue focusing on zinfandel but also celebrate the many other diverse varieties grown in Paso Robles Wine Country.
“Vintage Paso: Zinfandel and Other Wild Wines brings three days of lively festivities to Paso Robles Wine Country,” said Jennifer Porter, Executive Director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance. “The many unique events are designed to highlight the quality, creativity and variety of wines from our region, showcasing why Paso Robles is Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Region of the Year.”
Vintage Paso Weekend is full of exciting activity options that are as diverse as the wines produced in Paso Robles. Some of the highlights include winemaker dinner in the caves, wine and swine pairings, educational seminars, jazz and wine nights, vineyard art classes and much more!
