Wines and Steins


Fostering home wine and beer making and the art of tastings

About the Club

Credo
To foster home wine and beer making and to learn to appreciate the finer points of beer and wine making and the art of tastings.

About Us
Wines and Steins is a home Beer and Wine making group located in the Paso Robles Wine Region of San Luis Obispo, CA.  Our focus is the promotion, education, and enjoyment of hand crafted wines and beers. 

Benefits
The club meets the first Friday of each month.  The evening starts with a Happy Hour where we enjoy appetizers, wine, and beer, often made by club members.  Next is a general membership meeting to disseminate information about upcoming events, and to conduct any necessary business.   This is usually followed by a presentation from an industry expert, a blind wine and beer  tasting, or an opportunity to test our knowledge with fun quizzes.  After the meeting and presentation we share wine and beer and a potluck and get to know each other better.  Guests are always welcome.

Aside from being able to borrow wine and beer making equipment  members receive discounts at local industry related businesses as well as publications and certain functions.  Members often volunteer at local festivals getting a look behind the scenes and making new friends with like interests. 

Club members mentor first time wine and beer makers. We encourage our members to enter their wine and beer in various state and local competitions and we have several multi-award winning members.

History
Wines and Steins was started in the late spring of 1979 by a group of home winemakers in the Willow Creek area of rural Paso Robles CA. They felt that it would be rewarding to get together to share their knowledge of wine and beer making.

It didn't take long for the membership to expand all over the North County with a sprinkling of members from Central and South County cities. We now have about 100 members.
