Finally, return to the Park Saturday evening dressed in your finest Vineyard Chic for the Wine Country Auction & Dinner.

WINE COUNTRY AUCTION & DINNER At the Wine Country Auction & Dinner enthusiasts are invited to get up close and personal with Paso Robles winemakers and their romance with the region. One can only imagine the rare wines that winemakers will pull out of the cellar to share with their table. A locavore meal will be prepared by a team of four local chefs from the most highly acclaimed restaurants in Paso Robles, complemented by guest chef, Mark Sullivan of Spruce in San Francisco. While enjoying the delectable cuisine the Wine Country Auction lots featured in the live auction will invite you to immerse yourself in the spirit of Paso Robles as it explores connections throughout the world while pulling you deeper into its roots. Tickets to the Wine Country Auction & Dinner are $250 and are available by advance purchase only. This event has limited seating and will likely sell out.
RESERVE RESERVE creates the rare occasion in which wineries must choose the single wine they are most enamored with to share with you. This event adds a unique twist as the wine chosen must fit into one of four categories - power white/Rosés, reserves, library wines and futures. New this year - Should you happen upon a futures wine that you can’t live without … you don’t have to! The new Futures Auction allows the top five bidders of each unreleased wine to secure a case once the winery has determined that it is ready to be bottled. This unique opportunity allows you to taste the future now and reunite with it after the wine is ready to grace your cellar. RESERVE ticketholders look forward to a full weekend. In addition to Friday evening’s event, RESERVE attendees also have access to the Winemaker Seminar and early admission to the Grand Tasting on Saturday.
