Passports are valid until December 31 and are valid at North County businesses
ATSCADERO — The Atascadero Chamber has reduced the cost of its Lakeside Wine Passports to $65. Until December 31, there’s still plenty of time to support North County businesses and enjoy free tastings at 30 wineries, four breweries, two distilleries, one cider house and two olive oil tasting rooms. One free tasting is allowed per passport and per person (no sharing).
Passport holders will also receive free corkage fees at participating restaurants and discounts at four local hotels and two retailers.
Aaron Smith, who recently moved to Atascadero, said, “Without the passport, it would be hard to know where to start to sample the region’s wide array of excellent food and drink. The passport gave my wife and I a map to find new places and start trying some of the delicious flavors along the Central Coast.”
Participating wineries include Aaron Hill, Ancient Peaks Winery, B&E Vineyard, Bianchi Winery, Black Hand Cellars, Broken Earth Winery, Cass Winery, Castoro Cellars, Chronic Cellars, Derby Wine Estates, Dubost Winery, Eberle Winery, Ecluse Wines, Hidden Oak Winery, Hoyt Family Vineyards, Hunt Cellars, J Dusi, Justin Vineyards & Winery, Kula Vineyards & Winery, Le Vigne, MEA Wine, Opolo, Peachy Canyon, Rava Wines, Ruby Cellars, Seven Angels Cellars, Steinbeck Vineyards & Winery, Tolo Cellars, Vina Robles and Vintage Cowboy.
Participating breweries are Colony Mash Brewing Co., Dead Oak Brewing Company, Tent City Beer Company and Wild Fields Brewhouse. Bethel Road, Bristols Cider House and Forager at Central Coast Distillery also offer free tastings.
Passport holders enjoy free tastings in Groves at 41 olive oil and Olea farms. A one-time free corkage is offered at Don Q, Guest House Grill, La Donna’s, Nautical Cowboy, Union & Vine at SpringHill Suites and Streetside Ale House in Atascadero and Paso Robles.
