First things first, what is Galentine’s Day? Well, simply put, it’s a day to celebrate friendships with the gals! It takes place on February 13th and takes place on the eve of Valentine’s Day. We’ve put together a mini-guide packed with wine tasting, and more to help you plan an EPIC Galentine’s Day with your friends in Paso Robles, here on the Central Coast.

Galentine’s Guide: It’s Wine O’Clock

Are you and your friends big fans of wine? You’re in luck! With over 300 wineries, Paso Robles is the spot to be. Here’s our suggested guide for a wine-tastic Galentine’s Day in wine country.

Stop One: Breakfast At Brunch

The best wine tours and wine tasting adventures begin with a full stomach. You’ll want to load up on good food before you embark on your Galentine’s Day wine venture. That’s why we suggest swinging by Brunch in downtown Paso Robles. A team favorite – you won’t find anywhere else with such tasty brunch options! Dig into a S’Mores French Toast, or Monte Cristo, or a Breakfast Pizza – just to name a few options. You can also start off your wine day with a glass of Chardonnay here. (While you’re downtown, you can also pick up some snacks and treats for the Paso Robles General Store to munch on later.)

Celebrate the queens you and your friends are by kicking off your wine tasting at a castle! Also known as the Paso Robles castle, Tooth & Nail Winery is well-known and a favorite of locals and visitors. Their wine tasting comes with a flight of six incredible wines. You can choose between a red and white tasting for $30 and an all-red tasting for $40. For more information about tasting at the castle, click here! (Did we mention they also serve food? Their food is perfect for some snacking if you work up an appetite wine tasting.)

It’s time for a quick break to refuel; after all, you are a couple of wine tastings deep into Galentine’s Day – you need to keep up your energy!
