Whether you’re ready to catch a wave or relax all day, it’s important to recognize your summer vibe. In Paso Robles Wine Country, you can chill out under the oaks or shake it up downtown—we’re your wine lover’s playground! From swanky stays surrounded by vines to rugged adventures that put you up-close-and-personal with our world famous terroir, you’ll find that Paso Robles Wine Country is your summer fun destination. So, all that’s left to ask is: which one sounds most like you?
The Rugged One
Ranch to Vineyard: Love the land more than anything? So do Oso Libre founders Linda and Chris Behr, who purchased 90 acres of raw land on the Westside of Paso Robles in the late 90s. Slowly, they developed this rough terrain into a sustainable, modern working ranch that now hosts over 25,000 annual visitors! Not only does this ranch-turned-tasting room feature a gorgeous view and delicious wine tastings, but you can also take home a taste of Paso’s rustic ranching history. Angus cattle roam some 65 on-site acres (and when we tell you these cows are happy, we mean it). Think: No hormones, no feedlot, no corn and no stress. Oso Libre’s steers are encouraged to enjoy free-range grasses, legumes and water from flowing creeks. When paired with the winery’s standout red offerings, it’s a pair made in Paso Robles heaven.
Dine with wine: Love to lunch with friends? At Sextant’s Edna Valley location, you can relax at a general store-turned-tasting room that serves gourmet deli deliciousness! Gather around a table and give cheers to the flavors ahead. Located on the Old Edna Valley Townsite, this promises to be a meal to remember: upscale sandwiches, salads and snacks are prepared with care. Plus, you can pair it all with Sextant’s award-winning zinfandels and smooth Bordeaux blends. After you’ve enjoyed your nosh, visit the townsite, the perfect after-lunch photo opp.
The All Nighter
Stay a while: Always one to book a few nights? Copia Vineyards is the winery for you. Not only can you experience a flight of fantastic wines—you’ll also be able to rest your head at the winery’s plush guest house (it’s the kind of place that may encourage you to look into purchasing your own). Sleeping six and featuring a Jacuzzi and barbecue, the Copia Vineyards Guest House boasts stunning vineyard views while still being located close to downtown Paso. Translation? You get the best of both worlds! For those who love to check-in to comfort, this is always the best possible scenario.
The Crafty One
Authenticity in every sip: Love getting the real, local experience? Handpicked, hand-sorted and handmade, the wines at Hayseed and Housdon exemplify the idea of a truly local, artisanal product. In line with the many area garagiste wine producers working today, the winery is committed to producing small lot, high quality craft wines. If you like sustainably farmed fruit, tried-and-true winemaking techniques and zero additives, you ‘ve come to the right place. Stop by Hayseed’s unique “tasting garage” today and sample lovely blends and single varietal selections all crafted from the heart!
Be still: Seeking calming experiences that bring you back to your breath? Relaxing and re-centering is easy to do at Still Waters Vineyards. Surrounded by scenic hills and lush gardens, you can sink into a lawn chair and allow the day to melt away. Hungry? Bring a lunch of your own or nibble on a made-to-order cheese plate. Your knowledgeable attendant will guide you through the wines, bestowing enlightening information on winemaking techniques and vineyard practices. With over 22 different wines made at Still Waters, you’ll find that perfect wine that’s right for you. Talk about liquid zen!
