Zenaida Cellars Launches New ‘Experience Zenaida’ Series

The series includes intimate estate-vineyard hikes, cellar tours and tastings led by Zenaida’s Winemaker Eric Ogorsolka.

April 26, 2018 (Paso Robles, Calif.) – Zenaida Cellars is proud to announce the official launch of its seasonal Experience Zenaida series, beginning this Saturday, April 28, 2018.

The series allows visitors to Zenaida to go beyond the tasting room and take, deeper educational dives into the inner workings of the estate vineyard and winery – from the soil to the cellar.

 The first in the series is called The Bud Break Hike, and will begin at 11am, this Saturday, April 28. The springtime stroll and tasting will take guests through Zenaida’s walking trails that weave through the estate vineyard. Eric will lead the hike and discuss – and show – how the vineyard is “coming alive” with bud-break. The hike will conclude with a private tasting with Eric back at the winery. 

 A few tickets ($35) are available. If interested please call the winery at (805) 227-0382.

 The next Experience Zenaida programs will be in August and January:

 The Harvest Hike

Aug. 25, 2018 / 10-11:30am / $35

This hike and tasting will take you into the canopied vine rows with Eric as he leads guests through a typical grape-check session. You’ll be able to see – and taste – what Eric is monitoring to determine the all-important pick time. The hike will conclude with a private tasting with Eric back at the winery. 

The Cellar Session

Jan. 19, 2019 / 10-11:30am / $35

While farming is essential to making great wine, what happens in the cellar – from soak times to barreling to blending – is where the art of the winemaker is expressed. In this fun and educational tasting, Eric will lead you through barrel tastings, blending exercises and more. The session will conclude with a private tasting with Eric.

To reserve your place, please call the winery at (805) 227-0382. Payment is due at booking.
