INDULGE IN PASO ROBLES HARVEST WINE WEEKEND, OCTOBER 21 – 23, 2011
Paso Wine Man Attempts to get to Harvest…By Any Means Necessary

(Paso Robles, CA) Paso Robles Wine Country announces the release of the latest Paso Wine Man video in support of Harvest Wine Weekend, October 21 – 23, 2011. Paso Wine Man endeavors to get to Paso Robles Wine Country, By Any Means Necessary and invites wine enthusiasts to do the same for the three-day celebration of individual events held at more than 150 wineries throughout Paso Robles Wine Country. Check out the latest Paso Wine Man video and learn more about the 2011 Harvest Wine Weekend on www.pasowine.com.

Harvest in Paso Robles Wine Country is a sensation that can only be experienced among the vines. Although a photograph or stained glass window can paint a picture, you cannot feel the depth, warmth and camaraderie that flourish without a trip to Paso Robles during the most idyllic time of year. Beginning Friday, October 21 and concluding Sunday, October 23, wineries offer a variety of activities unique to the Harvest season including special barrel tastings, harvest demonstrations, vineyard and winery tours, art, live music, and much more. Experience vineyard practices in motion or take part in a blending seminar after a quick change from the symbolic purple stained grape stomp.

“Harvest is a time full of anticipation, excitement and hope that Mother Nature delivers a quality bounty of flavors,” said Stacie Jacob, executive director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance. “The 2011 season has been one of challenge and perseverance in Paso Robles Wine Country as spring frosts followed by a rather cool summer has set ripening back a few weeks. The anticipation of California’s famous Indian Summer will help achieve full ripening as we prepare for a buzz of activities during Harvest Wine Weekend.”
