Turley Wine Cellars (map)

Our Amador tasting room was onto something... Join us in Paso Robles on Saturday, January 26th for our first ever Smoked Meats & Turley Petites! 

We’ll have a special Petite Syrah focused tasting, including many of the classic vineyards you know & love as well as a brand-new wine from Napa! And because nothing pairs better with Petite Syrah and a cold winter’s day than a bunch of smoked meats, we’ll have a special BBQ pairing option from noon to 3pm! Just follow your nose on down to the barrel room where you'll find smoked tri-tip mac-n-cheese and smoked pulled pork sliders provided by Jeffry's Wine Country BBQ.  

$20 tasting fee includes BBQ pairing and 5 wines ($15 wine-only tasting also available). Fee waived with a 2 bottle purchase.    

We’ll be open 10am – 5pm, no reservations necessary.

For groups of 8 or more, or if you have any questions, please contact: pasorobles@turleywinecellars.com

Summer Solstice & Anniversary Party – Amador Tasting Room

Summer Solstice & Anniversary Party – Amador Tasting Room

Turley Wine Cellars (map)

Join us for the 6th Anniversary of our Amador Tasting Room and celebration of the Summer Solstice!  

 

Known to many as Midsummer, Litha, and the Feast of St. John the Baptist, but for us here at the Amador tasting room, it’s also our anniversary. It’s a time when we light the schwenker’s fire, feast and dance, and open those special wines that we have been saving all year. 

 

We’ve been planning an evening celebration that honors Larry’s favorite ritual of grilling outdoors and sharing Zinfandels. Our menu is simple and consists of local summer produce and roasted meats. It will be served family-style, and by the faces you recognize most from your visits to Amador. Most importantly, it includes the debut of our limited production and tasting room only wines.  

 

We invite you to join us at our Amador tasting room dressed in your “solstice whites” on Saturday, June 22nd.  

 

This is an evening event, and specific details will be available by May 1st.
