on 04/10/13 at 11:50 am


2013Pasoheader2GARAGISTES – (gar-uh-zhē-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. Who’s laughing now, Francois?Syn: Rule-breakers, pioneers, renegades, mavericks, driven by passion.

Welcome to Garagiste, a place for the underground, the different, and the cutting edge of small production winemaking with no rules.

Join the underground!

Garagiste Events, Inc. is proud to use the proceeds of the Festivals to support young winemakers at the Wine and Viticulture Program at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.


Thanks for choosing to attend the 3rd Annual Garagiste Festival in Paso Robles where you’ll get to experience over 150 wines from 66 passionate, independent winemakers from the Central Coast over the 4-day weekend of events.
