4. Sunsets at Seven Oxen

Enjoy a famously pink Paso Robles sunset on Seven Oxen’s beautiful new patio during the winery’s extended summer hours every first Saturday of the month all season long. Savor grub from the winery’s featured food truck of the month and sip Seven Oxen wines by the glass. You’ll especially want to try a bottle of the winery’s 2013 Zinfandel, which smacks of ripe black fruit and subtle vanilla. Although it pairs well with those ribs you’re eyeing right now, it will only develop in character over the next three years. Cheers to all the summer barbecues to come!
