Summer won’t last forever! Now is the best time to savor every last drop of fun with Paso Robles Wine. When it comes to hot August afternoons in Paso Robles Wine Country, there’s nothing like a splash in the pool. But what to imbibe while floating across the glittering surface of that cool, blue water? Enter: these incredible summertime offerings, as refreshing as they are unique. From crisp and tart to luscious and alluring, you’ll find an oasis of flavor at your fingertips! Serve cold for maximum chill factor. Let’s dive in, shall we?
A flirty-fresh rosé
Heart emoji on lock: Like your favorite summer love song, Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery’s Maddalena Rosé knows how to get your love flowing. Produced by the Riboli Family, this rosé is sourced from the Paso Robles and Monterey estate vineyards. Crafted in a true dry style with crisp, sexy aromas, you’ll find your glass bursting with yellow peach and fresh berry fragrances. We love this wine paired with fresh seafood, but it’s probably best enjoyed while enjoying anything at all with your crush!
A juicy chardonnay
Modern marvel: While some folks deem summer wines frivolous, we take a very different tack! This August, break out Hayseed and Housdon’s Excuse My Dust – Edna Valley Chardonnay and watch as minds are blown. Elegant yet playful, this uniquely Paso Robles offering is more comparable to a white burgundy than a typical oaked California chard. Fermented in new French oak barrels and finished in neutral oak to ensure that the tannins and toast don’t overwhelm the subtleties of the fruit—you’ll find a surprisingly juicy chardonnay that blends old world tradition with of-the-moment refreshment.
An unboring blend
Go toward the light: In Paso Robles Wine Country, a chilled white can be just as exciting as the most robust red. Don’t believe us? There’s nothing boring about Ecluse Wines’ 2019 Prelude, a white Rhone style blend layered with enticing complexity. Boasting a beautiful golden straw color and showcasing aromas of honeysuckle and pear, savor a palate that shines with star-power viognier. Nectarine, mango and a hint of agave round out what can only be called a riveting white wine-drinking experience.
A fruity grenache blanc
Lean on me: Like your best friend or favorite swimsuit cover-up, some wines are just there when you need them! There’s a reason why Allegretto Wines’ 2021 Cello Grenache Blanc has become as ubiquitous as suntan lotion and shades: it truly captures the ease of summer living in Paso. Featuring a dry finish and low acidity, you’ll be hard-pressed to find haters for this wine: Catch a whiff of stone fruit, lemon zest and honeysuckle in your glass before diving into soft pineapple dreams. Extra credit: Dive into Allegretto Vineyard Resort’s very own onsite swimming pool, surrounded by lush vineyards and cozy cabanas.
A timeless shade of pink
Why mess with perfection? Eberle’s 2021 Cotes-du-Robles Rosé is everything you’ve ever wanted in a summer sipper—with matching heels! The newly-released 2021 vintage features 80 percent stainless steel, 20 percent old French barrel-aged syrah made in the saignée method—so you know it’s legit. As the soft rose gold wine swirls in your glass, enjoy lovely aromas of pink grapefruit and lychee. Vibrant hints of papaya, dragon fruit, and a touch of passion fruit engulf the palate followed by a refreshing, vivacious finish. What can we say—this wine is going to look very good on you!
