June is for dads and grads! Whether you want to thank Pops or give your grad props, Paso Robles wine says it all. Born from a pioneering spirit, we aim to celebrate those who give back and reach for greatness. This June, offer a thoughtful gift that echoes the pride of Paso Robles Wine Country. Whether you give a celebratory bottle, gift certificate or—better yet—bestow them with one-of-a-kind wine country experience—they’re sure to feel the love.
Game on at Chronic Cellars
Toss the ball around: Father’s Day is coming up Sunday, June 19, and we’ll let you in on a little secret: Dad just wants to spend quality time with you! Chances are, you could use a bit of old fashioned bonding. Why not make a beeline for Chronic Cellars, where you can kick back with a lawn game under the Paso sun? Enjoy some friendly competition in the form of corn hole, horseshoes or billiards—breaking, of course, for a celebratory cheese plate! Plus, dad will love Chronic wines, famous for unstuffy bottles brimming with bold flavor and tongue-in-cheek mischief.
Eyes on the future at Écluse Wines
Time-honored tradition: Graduating college is a very big deal, regardless of the major! Recognize the time they toiled away achieving that coveted degree with an equally time-honored gift. Écluse wines aren’t just elegant, they’re age-worthy (and then some). The winery’s 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon showcases aromas of bright red fruit and ripe raspberries paired with a rich and luscious mouthfeel. Yes, this is a stately, classic red that will only grow finer over time: just like a quality education.
Fire up the grill at Oso Libre
Sizzle sizzle: It’s a mystery of the world, but oh-so true: Dads and grills just seem to share a special connection (put a spatula in his hand and he’ll know just how to wield it). Give pops something juicy to throw on the fire this Father’s Day when you stop by Oso Libre for the perfect cut. Not only will you come away with a hefty box of Oso Libre’s premium estate raised Angus beef (yum), but you’ll also find a fabulous wine to pair it all with. I mean, dad loves wine, but he probably loves meat more! Give the man both. He raised you after all!
Further their education at Robert Hall
Higher learning, one sip at a time: As far as adult rites of passage go, graduating from college is right at the top of the list. That said, your first sit-down wine tasting shouldn’t come too far after. Gift your grad a sophisticated and educational wine tasting experience at Robert Hall that they’ll take with them into future events, world travels and dinners with the boss. They’ll taste a lineup of Cavern Select varieties all while being guided by a friendly expert. The ability to taste wine like a pro is not unlike knowing a second language: You may not use the skill often, but when you do, prepare to impress!
Grab lunch at Sextant Wines
Around the table: When’s the last time you took your dad or grad out to lunch? If it’s been a while, let’s correct that now. Time to make a reservation for Sextant Wines in Edna Valley, where you can savor creative eats and laid back conversation with the help of an onsite gourmet deli. Housed within a centuries-old former general store, this way-cool lunch spot and tasting bar also doubles as a unique photo op worthy of a famed family memento.
