BlendFest on the Coast brings together more than just great wines. It connects two magnificent SLO County Central Coast regions of Paso Robles and the North Coast. Visitors to the coastal Highway 1 towns of Cambria and San Simeon have an opportunity to participate in this popular event that focuses on blending wines from nearby Paso Robles and in partnership with the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance. Beyond just crafting unique, delicious and unconventional blends, guests are encouraged to explore the area.
