This semi-private door-to door, "hop-on, hop-off" wine tasting tour service lets you set your pace and create your own wine tasting itinerary in Paso Robles Wine Country. The approximately 5-hour service picks you up at your accommodations and start you on their loops. They service over 60 wineries in the region and you just pick and choose where you want to “hop on” and “hop off” all day long. When you decide to "hop off" your driver walks you in, introduces you to the staff who will conduct your tasting. S/he will return in approximately 40 minutes, come into the tasting room, let you know s/he is back and if you're ready to go you just "hop on" and proceed to the next winery of your choice. If you are enjoying yourself, you can stay for another approximately 40minutes, or longer. It's your choice!
Pickups are generally scheduled between 10:30am-11:30am and coordinated logistically based upon the other pickups for the day, with outside regions, such as San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach, picked up first and returned last. Your driver will call you between 9:30am-10am on the morning of service to give you a more specific pickup time. Returns start around 4pm from the wineries.
You will most likely visit 4-5 wineries in your day, depending upon how long you stay at each winery and what you do for lunch. When you decide to “hop off” your driver will walk you in and introduce you to the tasting room staff who will guide you through your tasting experience. Then, they will return in approximately 40 minutes, come in and see if you’re ready to go. Then you just “hop on” and proceed to the next winery of your choice. If you are enjoying yourself, or not ready to go, you can stay for another approximately 40 minutes. Typically you are shuttled directly from winery to winery throughout the day, so it almost feels like a private tour. Occasionally other customer may need to be picked up along the way, but, it's not like a city bus, stopping at every stop in the loop.
This service is to over 60 premier Paso Robles wineries, between the East side, West side and Downtown. Most charge $5-$15 per tasting flight but waive it if you purchase wine, and the remaining handful charge $5-$15 and don’t waive it with purchase.
Please note: due to increasingly poor traffic conditions, specifically, the intersection of Hwy 46 West and 101, the local supplier may be unable to accommodate winery visits on both sides for the same day until further notice.
