Yes, this is a week of wine mania in SLO County! While the surf is indeed "up" in SLO wine country with Harvest on the Coast events, Paso Robles has been busy celebrating its own happy harvest festivities for a month now. The Downtown Paso Robles Wineries, a group of more than 20 tasting rooms located in downtown Paso, will keep the party rolling with a tasty Autumn Wine Stroll on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 3 to 6 p.m., so bring your strolling slippers and sipping socks (OK, that's not a thing, I know). The group's trademark strolls are held about four times a year, each with a slightly different twist. The autumn stroll allure? Attendees can munch on a special wine and food pairing at each tasting room on the route. We are not talking about sad cocktail weenies. Think butternut squash ravioli with roasted chestnuts, artisanal cheeses and sausages, crab cakes, and steak ciabatta sliders! Wash all that down with a vast array of local wines, truly from A to Z. Or, as they say in downtown Paso Robles, "from albariño to zinfandel."
Tickets are $40 and can be purchased at my805tix.com. Δ
