The 4th Annual BlendFest on the Coast showcases Paso Robles’ winemakers love to blend, mixing varieties to craft something unique and delicious. BlendFest celebrates these rule-breaking, unconventional wines throughout the weekend on the beautiful California Coast.  As evidenced by Paso’s recent honor as Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast, the region has become known for world class blends. It is now time those blends got their own dedicated festival!
Here’s a brief overview of the highlights!
