Growing grounds: Dive into a whole new world of small batch, boutique wines when you visit Oso Libre’s stunning winery and ranch. Featuring only the most premium wines, you’ll savor delicious charcuterie paired along with your tasting (plus enjoy in-depth information on each wine courtesy of a friendly tasting room attendant). Oso Libre’s newly offered Reserve Tastings are welcome to small groups and last about an hour—which, if you ask us, is more than enough time to get you hooked on their rich cabernet sauvignon or fresh viognier.

Take it from us: you’ll walk away with a solid education and a new appreciation for Paso’s agricultural roots.

Stellar syrah sipped here: Something magical happens when you sample the same varietal over multiple vineyards and vintages. Like a scientist, you’ll notice key differences in the flavor and bouquet both subtle and shocking. At Michael Gill Cellars, you won’t try just one Paso Robles syrah: you’ll try a whole slew (many of which boast gold metals and impressive scores). Specializing in this sumptuous varietal that swings from round and fruity to dense and tannic, you’ll enjoy an immersive education all while lounging in a European hunting lodge-styled environment. Is that smoky spice or bold black fruit in your glass? Better keep tasting till you get to the bottom of it.
