Adelaida Cellars Unveils New In-Depth Wine Tastings

Tastings Highlight Classic and Reserve Wines from Estate Vineyards

March 25, 2015 (Paso Robles, CA) – Adelaida Cellars presents a new series of wine tastings at the historic winery and vineyard. Through a seated tasting or an exploration of the vineyards, guests will experience the depth and grandeur of the estate and its wines. The tastings, each by appointment only, offer unique experiences that will educate and excite wine enthusiasts. Book your reservation by emailing or calling 800.676.1232 ext. 30.

“With our rich history, deep cellar, and beautiful property, we wanted to offer guests unique and intimate experiences - an opportunity to go beyond the typical tasting room experience,” said General Manager Jessica Kollhoff.

The newly minted Private Tastings are offered with either “Classic” or “Reserve” wine flights and are led by one of Adelaida’s wine educators. The Classic flight ($15/$12 club members) features wines from the current tasting room list. The Reserve flight ($30/$24 club members) focuses on reserve and library wines, along with a selection of local provisions. Both tastings are offered in the winery or the terraced hilltop that showcases a spectacular view of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The tastings are available by appointment, with 24 hr. notice expected.

Visitors seeking a bit more adventure are invited to embark on the scenic Tour, Taste and Tailgate (TT&T), which tours Adelaida’s iconic westside vineyards. This unique tour allows adventure seekers to explore the winery’s 150-acre estate, featuring magnificent views of the estate vineyards: Viking, Anna’s, Michael’s and the legendary 50-year-old HMR Vineyard, the oldest producing Pinot Noir Vineyard on the Central Coast. This experience includes tasting the wines in the vineyard in which they are grown. The TT&T experience is two hours and available by appointment only for $50 per person ($40/wine club members).

“Our tours allow guests a range of experiences, whether they’d like to taste older vintage wines, enjoy the expansive views of west Paso Robles or kick the dirt of these historic and living vineyards,” said Adelaida Cellars Winery and Vineyard Ambassador Glenn Mitton.

Adelaida’s wine educators lead the Private Tastings and TT&T tours. Mitton and Resident Wine Educator Tony Hermann helped conceptualize and launch the diverse tasting experiences. Hermann is a 30-year wine industry veteran who has extensive history with wine shops and restaurants. The English-born Mitton brings 20 years of knowledge and extensive wine training to Adelaida Cellars. His previous experience in international wine distribution, owning and operating a retail wine shop, and contributions to private and national dining clubs brings additional expertise to the position. Before joining Adelaida, Mitton worked four years at JUSTIN Vineyards and Winery, where he gained experience in production, the tasting room, and the wine society. He also spent one harvest at Venteux Vineyards in Templeton.
