Tastings on the Monochrome Wines Patio

Due to the current State and local Covid-19 guidelines we will begin to conduct in-person tastings on Sunday, June 21, 2020. These will be outdoor limited seating tastings and must be scheduled in advance. Due to our limited patio space, we are only able to accommodate 3 groups or up to 10 people.

You will have the opportunity to interact directly with the owner/winemaker, Dave McGee, learn about Monochrome, our wines, and winemaking style. Feel free to ask any general questions you may have about wine or winemaking during the appointment.

Tastings are $20 per person, but waived with purchase of two bottles of wine.
To insure your safety and for the safety of our staff we will have the following requirements:

  • Tastings shall be by appointment only. We will not be taking walk-ins.
  • Due to the Paso Robles heat, our tasting appointments will be available Fridays-Sunday at 10am, 11:15pm, 1:00pm, and 2:15pm, to allow for sufficient cleanup/sanitation time in between groups.
  • When you arrive at the appointed time, please wait outside the patio/tasting room until your table is ready, properly cleaned, and you have been invited to sit.
  • Each tasting session will be 45 minutes (the same as our regular tastings in the Monochrome tasting room).
  • At any given table, only customers who came together may be seated at that table. A maximum of 6 customers may be seated at one table.
  • Face masks will be required in every scenario, but when seated and tasting.
  • Customers will need to comply with restrictions and social distancing standards. You will be refused service if you do not adhere to safety requirements.
  • You must be 21 years old or older to purchase wine and/or participate in these tastings.

Virtual Tastings

Virtual tastings are free and have the following requirements:

  • When you book an appointment, you will receive directions on how to link to the remote tasting session through your computer or other device using the free Zoom app. Your device should have audio, video, and Zoom capabilities (most modern laptops, tablets or smartphones will work fine).
  • While we may ultimately be able to have multiple people link into the same session, for now we will limit it to one group per tasting session. Of course, it is up to you how many people will be viewing from your computer or monitor.
  • While no purchase is required to participate in this program, to get the most out of the experience we recommend you have two or more different bottles of Monochrome wine OR one of our Virtual Tasting kits you can open and taste during the appointment. If you don’t currently have any Monochrome wine, you may order some from the Monochrome website. Please allow for delivery time prior to the scheduled tasting session (delivery typically requires 1-10 days, depending on where you live and when you order).
  • Appointments should be booked at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Each tasting session will be 45 minutes (the same as our regular tastings in the Monochrome tasting room).
  • We will initially offer tasting sessions, Wednesdays and Thursdays, at 2:00, 3:00, 4:00 and 5:00 PM (all times PST). We may add or adjust times later based upon customer demand and feedback.
  • You must be 21 years old or older and a US resident to purchase wine and / or participate in these tastings.
