We are blessed with many wineries in the area both south and north of San Luis Obispo. So, it’s always fun when we come across a new tour or activity associated with a particular winery.
We’ve just learned that owner, Kevin Jussila, of Kukkula winery is offering a tour and brunch at his vineyard. Kukkula is a small estate winery in the far reaches of the Adelaida district with Kukkula serving as winemaker as well as owner.
A new hiking tour takes guests through the vineyard and into the owners’ hilltop home for brunch and a uniquely intimate experience. The tour begins at the bottom of the hillside vineyard and works its way through the vines as Jusilla describes his amazing 10 year journey of transforming an old walnut orchard into an organic, dry-farmed winery growing Rhone wine varietals.
Once you reach the top of the hill you are welcomed into the Jusilla’s home where, Paula Jusilla, a proficient cook invites you to the table for a delicious brunch of pastries, fruit, yogurt and homemade wine jelly. That day’s menu may even feature Paula’s specialty a savory kale and wild boar sausage frittata.
This three hour tour is offered May 21, August 20, and October 22 for $40.
Kukkula winery is located at 9515 Chimney rock road in Paso Robles. To make your reservation you can call them at 227-0111.
