Paso Robles Wine TourTasting Tips While on a Paso Robles Wine Tour

As you enter the tasting room on a Paso Robles wine tour, head for the tasting area. A host will greet you and get you started with wine glasses and explain what wines are available for tasting. Tasting rooms vary from the very elaborate to a simple table set up in the winemaking area.

On most Paso Robles wine tours, white wines are tasted first, followed by red wines, and then desert wines. Taste each wine carefully and savor each sip. Most wineries will have a sheet of tasting notes. Read the tasting notes as you taste and see if you notice any of the aromas or flavors listed in the notes.

It is okay to skip any of the wines on the tasting list. Some people just want to taste the reds. Some may be interested in tasting only certain varietals of wine.

You do not have to drink all the wine in your glass. Toss the unwanted wine in your glass into the dump bucket provided for this purpose.

If water is provided, use it to clear your palate or to rinse your glass. Rinsing the glass is a good idea when the tasting moves from whites to reds or to dessert wines.

If you are visiting a Paso Robles winery with friends or a group, try not to be loud or noisy. It ruins the atmosphere of the tasting room.

Bringing children to a winery can be tricky. Have a planned activity for them while you spend your time tasting.

Stay at the Villa Toscana and enjoy all the Paso Robles wine tours avialable!
