Learn about wine from berry to bottle
From Harvest Crush Encounters to bottling your own custom blend, you can learn about wine and the Paso Robles wine region with First Crush
During Crush, First Crush takes you behind the scenes and into the vineyards and winery to experience at one of the most exciting and spectacular times of the year. You'll sip, pick, crush, stomp and even bottle premium Paso Robles wine which you can call your own. You'll also meet growers and winemakers while getting in on the action at a Harvest Crush Encounter, an exclusive, one-of-a-kind wine experience.
Learn about the artistic side of wine of winemaking with our Art of Blending Wine Workshops. You can also put your signature on a custom, privately-labeled wine you create from premium quality Paso Robles varietals. You’ll be guided through the process by our winemaking team to ensure that your wine is the same great quality wine you’ve come to expect from Paso Robles. You get to create your own custom label, and you can come back to bottle and label your wine or we’ll do it for you. First Crush offers regular winemaking or private blending workshops.
All First Crush tours, events and experiences are educational and fun. Our winemaking workshops are the only hands-on classes that are designed to help you learn about the different aspects of the winemaking and grape growing processes, as well as the Paso Robles' wine industry. The topics mirror what is actually happening in the vineyards and the winery at that time and give you the opportunity to participate in and learn about the exciting world of winemaking.
