Our guests were glowing this past weekend from adventures out in the Paso Robles sunshine enjoying one of the largest festivals in the area, Vintage Paso.
After climbing out of the comfort of our new bedding we have replaced in all of our spacious rooms, happy wine lovers started the weekend off on Friday where many wineries were hosting live music and winemaker dinners.
Tooth and Nail Winery (formerly Eagle Castle) had live music from the Matt Cross band featuring 1960-70’s music with ‘Outta Sight’ burgers paired with their ‘Force of Nature’ Zinfandel. Cass Winery had a delicious winemaker dinner with rack of lamb paired with their Paderewski Zinfandel.
On Saturday guests could enjoy a sold out Zinfandel seminar where wineries Brochelle, J Dusi, Peachy Canyon, Pomar Junction, Tobin James and Turley Wine Cellars educated the class about the ins and outs of Zinfandel, the grapes, the process, tasting and pairing.
Following their class they could explore wine country taking in our newly green hills from Spring rains and the fresh breeze off of our coastal beaches not too far away. Denner winery held their own reserve tasting classes with their wine maker where wine tasters got to try limited and reserve wines while learning everything about Denner’s process. The lucky attendees where the only ones able to purchase those wines with exclusive privilege! Several wineries offered fresh local food, great music, case specials and theme centered parties. After so much excitement many of our guests happily returned to get refreshed by our beautiful pool or snuggle down for the night.
Sunday brought guests into the final day of the festival where wineries offered a wind down day such as Rangeland Wines did with a relaxing day at their ranch eating a lunch of grass-fed BBQ lamb and beef sliders, sipping on wines such as their dry farmed Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, GSM, Bordeaux blends and a tour of the vineyards and countryside. A great way to end a fun weekend.

This year you can expect celebrity guests such as Ebenezer Scrooge, the Snow Queen, Mr. and Mrs. Clause and a variety of characters! Family friendly as usual they do not permit dogs for safety reasons, but the kids and “big kids” alike will have a great time!
Along with community caroling there are illuminated floats, several groups of entertainers, community open houses, complimentary treats such as cotton candy and cookies, live music, hot cocoa and much more.
The streets are packed with guests but everyone is smiling and the crisp, cool air that greets Paso Robles when the sun goes down will make you feel alive and ready for some warm goodies.

Fall is upon us here in Paso Robles, though it might a little different than what you’re used to if you’re coming from out of state; here, you’ll have no use for the scarfs and long coats most often associated with this time of year – not when the temperatures are still in the seventies! However, our warm weather doesn’t mean that we don’t have the same seasonal traditions as elsewhere. In fact, one of the most enjoyable aspects of this season is visiting the local farms and tasting the delicious fresh fruit and vegetables that Paso Robles produces.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled three of the best ways to experience the fall during your stay at Adelaide Inn.
Jack Creek Farms
With Halloween just around the corner, what better way to get in to the ghoulish spirit than with a sea of pumpkins? That’s just what you’ll find at Jack Creek Farms, which is located just 15 minutes from our inn and features a host of pumpkins perfect for pies, soups, or Jack o’ Lanterns. They even have 100-pound-plus pumpkins available, which are fun if your car is big enough to transport it. You can also taste their delicious cider and honey, pick your own apples, or get lost in the hay maze – entertainment for the whole family!
Mt. Olive Organic Farm
Paso Robles is deeply connected to its surrounding land, and one of the best ways to see this in action is by visiting a farm that has a strong commitment to sustainable agricultural practices. Mt. Olive Organic Farm is just a short 10 minute drive from our inn; visitors can take a tour to learn about their farming techniques, visit their petting farm to get up close and personal with their llamas and goats, or try their delicious Red Fuji Apples. Also be sure to pick up some strawberries before you leave – they’re Mt. Olive’s specialty, and not to be missed!
1st Annual Golden Oak Honey Festival
Those lucky enough to be visiting us on the weekend of the 25th October get to attend an event that will hopefully become a Paso Robles tradition. The 1st Annual Golden Oak Honey Celebration is designed to commemorate the best of fall, from the changing colors to the seasonal produce, and is set to feature a host of locally grown food, antiques, arts, and even bee-keeping seminars! The event is free and takes place downtown from 9am – 3pm.
Whatever you decide to do, you’re bound to have a wonderful fall experience in Paso Robles. And after a long-day of sightseeing – and eating – you can return to your spacious room at Adelaide Inn knowing you get to do it all again tomorrow.
With the arrival of summer comes a different type of conundrum than we are sometimes accustomed to in the quieter months: instead of a shortage of events, the dilemma lies within the abundance of choices! Look no further to cut right to the chase, as we’ve done all the leg work to highlight for you all the best that beautiful Paso Robles has to offer in the upcoming weeks:
Mid-State Fair, July 16-27: You might feel surprised at the length of this festival, but given how much is offered during, it’s a wonder they managed to jam-pack it all in! In the beautiful, sprawling State of California where you can find it all, over the course of these 11 days, all has been centralized conveniently for you so you don’t have to look quite so far! With five grandiose stages showcasing elite musical talent, carnival rides, equestrian shows and shooting galleries (to name a mere few!) this is the ultimate fair that all others aspire to
Concerts in the Park, July 18: If only we could all personify that viral e-card of an office worker throwing up his papers, declaring “forget this, it’s music festival season!” Now there is no better reason to than for this concert series, held each Friday (luckily after the work day, so no document tossing required!) from 5:30-7:30pm at the City Park Gazebo. Featured this Friday, July 18th is the talented group Rob Larkin & The Wayward Ones, strumming a refreshing composite of rock, soul, and Americana.
Olive Festival, August 16: If the Greek knew to incorporate it into almost every constituent of their cuisine, we should all follow their lead and enlighten ourselves on this complex and dynamic fruit (or as some would consider, vegetable!) The opportunity to do so is provided from 10am-5pm at the Paso Robles Downtown City Park, where local olives will be the source of sampling, education, and culinary competition.
At the Adelaide Inn, we would be honored to offer you a comfortable place to rest your head after a bustling festival day. By booking one of our luxurious and affordable rooms, you will be treating yourself to the perfect accommodation complement to your perfect vacation.
