Insta-yum! Need some summer vacation inspo? Look no further than Paso Robles Wine Country, where selfies soar to new heights and every pic is worth a thousand sips. Of course, you don’t have to come all the way here to get the amazing experience (just pick up your iPhone and start scrolling). That’s not to say you won’t be inspired to take action: Sunny, scenic and stylish, a trip to Paso Robles is always as photogenic as it is fun. So, what are you waiting for? We dare you not to double tap. And why not stalk us on Instagram to learn about hidden gems in Paso Robles, click here to follow us @pasorobleswineries!
Why “boar” in the handle? After 25 years of winemaking, the Eberle logo remains the “small wild boar,” the literal translation of the German name “Eberle” into English. Still, you won’t find many wild animals on the winery’s social media feed. With cavernous wine caves bursting with beautifully-lit barrels and romantic pics of recent weddings held on site, Eberle Winery knows how to showcase its long legacy of approachable wines and Paso Robles elegance. Follow along on Instagram and get a better view of this pioneering winery’s famously robust reds, sun dappled tasting deck and more. Tip: Eberle’s Summer Sunset Sipper series features live music, the setting sun and fine wine. Tag a friend who doesn’t bore you.
Small yet mighty: Handcrafted small batch wines steal the spotlight at the Écluse tasting room as well as on their Instagram account, which is just as homespun and charming. Scroll along with the winemaker and fall into a lazy afternoon filled with gorgeous green vineyards and softly undulating hillsides. But wait! There’s more than just well lit wine glasses clinking in the sun. Watch real life customers enjoying leisurely outdoor tastings, see what’s new with upcoming live music events or simply bask in stunning scenery that surrounds the tasting room (we promise, it’s even more beautiful in real life). Plus, you can even “meet” winery dog Jax! He’s pretty darn cute, if we don’t say so ourselves.
It’s about the people: From root to stem, Lone Madrone is at the heart of Paso’s friendly winemaking community. Now, get virtually acquainted with the jovial and hardworking faces behind the wines. Explore a shaded outdoor tasting area and take a peek into the winery’s sister business, Bristols Cider—all while never leaving the comfort of your couch. But be warned: With a rainbow of wines crafted from premium Paso Robles vineyards, you just might be inspired to get up and get going to Paso. Partial to a good #ThrowbackThursday? They doesn’t don’t disappoint in this department, either.
Slice of life: Blending grapes from distinctive westside Paso Robles mountain vineyards, Kiamie Cellars is known for fabulous whites, reds and sparklings that can truly turn every day a celebration. Their Instagram, fittingly, is a collage of fun and inspiring moments, which may or may not include great wine within the frame (although it’s never far from mind). Yes, their grid is delightfully un-curated, featuring a closeup of one of the winery’s popular hummingbird feeders, adorable onsite goats hanging tough, and some truly unique pairings (yes, Kiamie Wines do go well with In-n-out Burger, and they have the post to prove it).
Real life is great, but we prefer day dreaming about an afternoon at Sextant, whose two tasting rooms (located in Paso Robles and Edna Valley, respectively), are a wonderland for diehard Instagram devotees. Pour up a glass of aspirational beauty, where wine bottles are styled for optimum wow factor, the people are gorgeous and the sunset casts a warm glow over pastoral outdoor winemaker dinners. Yes, these award-winning wines are crafted with the utmost passion, that is clear from every thoughtfully snapped pic. But that’s not to say there isn’t a hilarious photo of a Frenchie “sipping” a glass of chardonnay! Now that’s true class.
