Sip & Taste

Local Craft Experience

You’re invited to enjoy an exciting afternoon of sipping and sampling from some of the Central Coast’s best wineries, cideries, distilleries, and breweries, plus taste fresh farm-to-table food from local farmers, chefs and restaurants! Wine Boss and Chef Eddie G. present the Sip and Taste Festival Paso Robles to bring all this goodness together for you to enjoy at the beautiful Allegretto Vineyard Resort.

In addition to unlimited food and beverage samples, you’ll be able to purchase various food products to take home as well as order beverages to be shipped from producers. Food Network celebrity Chef Eddie G will offer several cooking demonstrations, and his Locavore Media crew will be filming for new productions that may appear on Netflix, Food Network or Amazon Prime. Among these demos will be a mixology demonstration from local yet nationally recognized speakeasy Eleven Twenty Two.

Since music is food for the soul, rising rock star Shane Hall will be performing his blues, soul, and Americana music and will include a special guest appearance by Kaleo Wassman from reggae rock sensation, Pepper! It was important that we give something back so part of the proceeds will be donated to the Griffin Gives Foundation: a non-profit founded to enrich the lives of military families.

Want to make it a weekend? Stay overnight at the luxurious Tuscan-inspired Allegretto Vineyard Resort. We’re pleased to offer a special room discount exclusively for our festival guests. Wine Boss and all of our participating purveyors look forward to seeing you on a harvest afternoon you won’t forget. Tickets are very limited, especially the VIPs, which includes an additional hour to sample every vendor first and a more personable bonus demo! We even threw in a special gift bag for everyone. You don’t want to miss this first-ever food and craft beverage event on September 7th, 2019 from Noon to 4PM . 21+ Cheers!

Wine Boss Paso Robles

Wine Boss Always Brings The Party and the Good Vibes

Wine Boss is a small winery doing big things located in the heart of downtown Paso Robles. Starting out first as a wine bar, owner and winemaker Thomas Booth had the idea of helping wineries with very limited production - most not even having tasting rooms themselves! This principle will include many of our participants as well as cider and spirits vendors. Wine Boss also found a niche private labeling for popular reggae-rock bans like Pepper so don’t be surprised if you catch a little bit of that good-vibes influence here!
