What Better Way to Discover Paso Robles' Warm Hospitality, Farm-Fresh Food...

What Better Way to Discover Paso Robles' Warm Hospitality, Farm-Fresh Food and Award-Winning Wines than by a Guided Walking Tour? A Central Coast Food Tour in Paso Robles will introduce you to this new culinary frontier where food, wine and history come together to create a most delicious experience. Did you know a Paso Robles wine won Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" in 2010, and the area was recently named the West Coast's "most exciting wine region" by Sunset Magazine? On your tour you'll enjoy a mix of food and wine tastings at six specially selected food and wine venues that best represent the array of agricultural, culinary and viticultural resources in the area. We'll help you get oriented to all that Paso (as we locals refer to the area) has to offer.

Wonderful walking tour with Laura as our guide! The three of us spent a lovely day learning about Paso Robles, eating some wonderful food and drinking some great wine. We were in Paso for a girls' weekend, and it was a perfect fit. I highly recommend this tour!

With our guide, Laura, we almost forget this was a foodie tour that we purchased. Laura made us feel like spending a half-day with a good friend who were happily showing around her town of Paso Robles and educating us about the history of this town and the best wineries. It was very relaxing and a lot of fun! Thank... More
