Highlights
    What to Expect
    Sip on some of Southern California’s finest wines during this tasting excursion with half- and full-day options. Whether you’re a wine newbie or an expert you’re sure to enjoy this chance to sample this unique region’s diverse vintages and up your knowledge in the process.

    Start your day with a pickup from your hotel. Most local cities near San Luis Obsipo are covered. Depending on whether you select the full- or half-day tour will determine your departure time. Make sure to enjoy a hearty breakfast or lunch as wine tasting on an empty stomach is not recommended. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride during the scenic drive to your first tasting stop. Those on the full-day trip will visit four wineries, while those on the half-day will explore three.

    As you stop at each winery, you’ll get a chance to sample a wide variety of whites and reds. Your guide will provide an expert introduction to wine tasting process, offering tips on how to properly see, swirl, sniff, sip, savor for maximum benefit. Who knows, you might even find a new favorite wine? If you’ve selected the full-day trip, at lunch time you’ll also get to dig into a tasty picnic lunch during your second winery stop. An assortment of artisanal sandwiches, seasonal salads and tasty sides is sure to please even the most jaded foodie. You’ll return back to your hotel at the conclusion of your fun-filled day.

    Hey there Jenifer, Happy to hear you enjoyed your day in wine country and thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers looking for similar experiences. We hope to see you back in our neck of the vineyards again soon! Please remember that we service all wine regions of the Central Coast from Paso Robles to SLO Coast to Santa Barbara County, including the beautiful Foxen Canyon Wine Trail. So much wine requires much more time... Until then ~ Cheers! Jill T. & Team Breakaway

    OK, date wise we actually took this tour om or about June 2018, but that date wasn't a choice in the pop-up, so August 2018 shows. The tour was fun as was our driver and tour guide, Mike VonHeckler- a very knowledgeable guide to the local area. Hotel and pickup and drop-off was

    Hi George! Thank you kindly for sharing your thoughts with other travelers, especially after so long ago! Nothing like savoring a great "finish" that lasts a good long time! Thanks for the shout out to Mike VonHeckler, he's an Advanced Somm, and knows his stuff! We hope to have you on board again soon... Until then ~ Cheers! Jill T & Team Breakaway Tours

    The communication with the main office was great. I asked if I might be able to select some of the wineries that we visited. They accommodated us with the caveat that there are other people on our tour and they may also have requests. Breakaway came through and half of the

    Hi Cindy & Mario! Happy that we could provide 1/2 of your list and we hope that you enjoyed the other 1/2 as well! Paul is amazing and has a wonderful family wine history with deep roots. We all are passionate about wine and sharing it with others and we always want our guests to experience just that! We hope to see you and yours on board again soon, you only have around 450 other wineries to visit collectively in Paso Robles, SLO Coast & Santa Barbara County, a thankless job but somebody has to do it... Until then ~ Cheers! Jill T & Team Breakaway Tours
