DO I NEED A RESERVATION TO ENJOY A WINE TASTING AT EBERLE WINERY?
Reservations help our team provide the highest level of service to our guests. We will continue to require reservations for our seated wine tastings. If any reservations remain unbooked after being sent to the waitlist, we will book walk-in guests a reservation based on availability. While we do still accept walk-in tasters in the bar, space is limited to parties of 4 or less on a first come first served basis. Weather permitting you can enjoy a bottle or glass on our Oak Knoll Patio if you do not have a reservation.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK A RESERVATION?
We recommend booking your reservation as soon as possible. Weekends and holidays are especially desirable times to visit our beautiful Paso Robles wine country. We may sell out of reservations for those days as early as 4 weeks prior to the date you would like to visit. If reservations are showing sold out for the day or time you are looking to come, please consider a different day or time or join our wait-list to be notified by email of any cancellations. ****After booking, please look over your confirmation email to verify that what you have reserved is correct.
HOW DOES THE WAIT-LIST WORK?
If we are showing sold out reservations for the day, time, party size or seating type you are looking for, we encourage you to join our wait-list. You will only need to join the waitlist once, but please be sure to leave us notes with your preferred/available time frame. In order to cast the widest net, we recommend keeping your options as open as possible by selecting any experience and any service as the opportunity to book a reservation through the waitlist is based entirely on unpredictable cancellations. All communication for the waitlist is by email only. When we have a cancellation, if the newly available reservation matches your waitlist submission and preferences, you will receive an email notification inviting you to book. Please note, this email invitation is not a reservation. As we experience cancellations you may receive multiple invitations leading up to the date you are hoping to come. Simply disregard any undesirable invitations, but take immediate action when you receive a favorable invitation. Availability is on a first come first serve basis. In order to secure a seat, you must be the first person to book the reservation on Tock. If you are redirected from the booking page or receive an error notification, it is because someone has managed to book the reservation before you. If you successfully complete the reservation you will immediately receive an email confirmation from Tock. *We experience quite a few last minute cancellations. For the best chance of gaining a reservation, we highly encourage you to check your emails the day before, and continually on the day you are hoping to come.
BOOKING SYSTEM LOGOUT TIMES:
Please be aware that you will have 7 minutes to complete the transaction once a reservation slot is selected. If you exceed the allotted time you will be signed out and the reservations will be released back into our system for other guests to reserve.

Early/Late Arrival Policy
Thank you for joining us with a reservation at Eberle Winery! We understand that booking multiple tasting appointments can be difficult to gauge the timing needed at each destination. (A safe estimate is about 2 hours at each place with travel.)

If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out.
Early Arrivals: Early arrivals will not be able to be seated until their appointment time. If you are early, you may choose to opt out of your reservation and taste at the bar (by availability) or purchase a glass or bottle and enjoy your wine over on the Oak Knoll Patio until your appointment time.
