We had the opportunity to go do a Wine Walk here in Paso Robles. It’s a new business venture in which the old way of wine tasting is tossed to the curb. Instead of having to get a driver or find a friend who’s willing to be the designated driver (we have no friends like that) you meet at the Paso Robles Downtown Park by the gazebo and from there Don, the owner of Wine Tours VIP takes you on a walking tour of downtown Paso wineries.
Oh but that’s not it my friends! On our specific tour he also took us to We Olive to do some olive oil tasting and to Vivant Fine Cheese to chow down on some amazing cheeses. There are roughly 20 downtown wineries and on your tour he walks you to three wineries and then to two additional places; either We Olive, Vivant Fine Cheese, Two Little Birds Bakery, DiRaimondo Italian Market and Cheese Shop, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, or Powelles Sweet Shoppe.
It’s a total of five stops which will take about three and a half hours, and during the walking parts your tour guide will tell you some of the history of Paso Robles. We got a group of eight of us together and sincerely had a blast!! Whether a tourist or a local, it is super fun to go do, Hoot has been in Paso for eight years and learned things about Paso that he hadn’t heard before!
This tour takes place Wednesday through Sunday and it’s $29.00 per person which includes wine tasting as well as other tastings (we had the olive oil tasting and cheese tasting included) and 10% off any purchases. Check with your tour guide for other downtown specials included with your tour! The Wine Walk tour guides will also collect all purchases for you and have them ready for you to pick up at the end of the tour!
Good stuff people, you gotta check this one out. Super fun time right in downtown. Drinking, eating, and then exercising it all off!! Call 805-239-5920 to set up tours and visit http:www.winetoursvip.com.
