This year marks the seventh year of the Garagiste Festival in Paso Robles. The Festival, which also brings Central Coast wineries to Los Angeles, the Bay Area and Solvang, has its home in Paso where the first festival was held in 2011.
Dubbed “one of the most exuberant wine festivals because of the thrill of discovery,” and “Wine-tasting Nirvana” by the LA Times, the festival takes place in Paso from November 10th to 12th 2017, at the Ponderosa Pavilion at the Paso Robles Fairgrounds and other area locations. Over 60 local commercial garagiste winemakers will be pouring over 200 handcrafted, micro-production wines.
Now a local institution because it benefits a special scholarship fund for the Cal Poly Wine and Viticulture program, it is the first and only festival dedicated to undiscovered and under-recognized American garagiste winemakers who are making some of the best, most exciting wines in the world.
This year’s festival includes a Grand Tasting, a Winemaker mixer featuring “Rare and Reserve” wines, intimate and educational tasting seminars, a Rocking After-Party, a Paso Passport Day and more. And, like all Garagiste Events, the Paso Robles Festival offers attendees a low-crowd experience, high-quality wines, first-time and ‘soon-to-break-out’ discoveries, personal winemaker interaction, diverse grape varieties and a renegade and fun-loving spirit.

Halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, the historic town of Paso Robles became known for its abundance of hot mineral springs that brought relief from pain–first for the Salinan Indians, then for the Franciscan friars. As word of the springs” healing powers spread, hotels and bathhouses were built to accommodate the tourists who came seeking cures. The little community developed steadily after 1886, when the railroad arrived and town lots were auctioned. Area homesteaders raised cattle, grew grain, and planted fruit, walnut, and almond orchards–all without irrigation. Once known as the almond capital of the world, Paso Robles” agriculture has gradually changed from dry-land farms to irrigated vineyards. Tourists are attracted to Paso Robles for its mild climate, beautiful scenery, and mineral baths, which are being revived. The area”s rich heritage is portrayed through more than 200 images from public and private historical collections.
