Wine tasting in Paso Robles is obviously a must!
It can be intimidating to bring the family along in some wine regions, but many Paso Robles wineries welcome families and even offer fun things for the kids to do while mom and dad sip award-winning wines!
Below is a great list of wineries that offer a family-friendly wine tasting experience and keep the kiddos in mind. It is by no way a complete list, so if you know of a great family-friendly winery, send us a message.
Ettiquette notes before you head out with the kids
- The winery is not a daycare or a kids play place, it is a business, treat it as such.
- While many of the places have things for the children to do, we cannot guarantee that they’ll always be available, so go prepared with things to do.
- If you’re children are wild and crazy, they may not be ready to go to a winery with you.
- Be prepared to pay for the tasting, buy a bottle or a glass and TIP WELL.
- Bring snacks and food for your children so they are less cranky.
- If you’re going with a large group, call ahead so staff is prepared.
