Garagiste Festivalenlarge

When you want a getaway where you can be yourself, enjoy amazing wine and food and get some peace and quiet…our cozy beds and glistening pool are calling to you at Adelaide Inn! So get on the road and head to Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles! Besides our cool mini-golf course and our lush gardens, there are other fantastic places here to visit and one of those happens to be a unique and exclusive wine festival that is totally different that has several events in one fun weekend.

The Garagistes Festival is one of the best wine weekends for casual wino types that love the rich wines of Paso Robles and the small winery intimacy that these boutique wines offer to the local wine and foodie communities. 

“GARAGISTES – (gar-uh-zhe-stuh)n, Fr. – A term originally used in the Bordeaux region of France to denigrate renegade small-lot wine makers, sometimes working in their garage, who refused to follow the “rules.” Now a full-fledged movement responsible for making some of the best wine in the world.”

A wonderful way to start your November leading into Thanksgiving! Over 50 wineries are participating in the main event so you can have exclusive access to their wines, taste them all under the same roof, sample them with local cuisine and rock out to an after party that is fit for the rebel crowd drawn by wine made with no rules.
