The holidays are fast approaching—do you know where all that holiday magic will come from? Sure, you could conjure the warm and cozy glow yourself, but why not let us do all the work? From a cheerful, colorful downtown to festive culinary offerings and exciting tours, Paso Robles Wine Country is your enchanting holiday getaway conveniently located on the California coast midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Complete with sunny days, scenic vineyards and the finest wines for gifting and sipping, you’ll find way more than 5 easy ways to celebrate the season. But here’s a great start!
Group outings that glitter
Underground wonders: One of Paso’s first and most iconic wineries, Eberle Winery is all about serving up classic California Cabernet Sauvignon alongside a fun-loving vibe. Got a gaggle of loved ones in tow? You’ll want to plan a group outing to Eberle Winery’s Vineyard Deck and Cave Tour, which whisks folks underground for a peek at stacks of aging barrels. Afterward, enjoy red and white wines by the glass in a stunning outdoor setting. Plus, dogs are welcome on leash, too! This is the feel-good soiree of the season, so grab a friend (or five) and swing on by.
Stays that sparkle
Who needs boring old snow when you can have vineyards and wine? For those planning on trekking to Paso for the holidays, you made the right choice. Sunny days, a decorated downtown and warm hospitality all around will get you in a festive mood in no time. The wines can’t be beat, but there’s another perk you’ll soon be gushing over: our incredible hotels and vacation rentals. With so many unique stays to choose from, you can cozy up to a quiet vineyard cottage or go resort style at luxury stays like Allegretto Vineyard Resort. Tuscan-inspired accommodations, spa services and an onsite restaurant (and wine tasting room) await. Open Thanksgiving day! What are you waiting for?
Unlimited holiday feasting
Are we jolly yet? A festive feast with all the fixings is so very welcome this time of year, and in Paso Wine Country we simply live to serve! At Ernest Hemingway Steakhouse & Tasting Room, there’s no need to book separate reservations for wine tasting and dinner—simply savor both! Dig into a gourmet menu featuring charcuterie, steaks, pizzas and pasta dishes served in a beautiful environment that begs for a photo opp. With so much on your plate this holiday season, why not make it easy on yourself? Leave all that cooking—and cleaning—to us. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy your wine.
Gift-giving made easy
Hint: They don’t want tech gadgets. When it comes to successful stocking stuffers, nothing quite beats a hand-selected bottle of Paso Robles wine that reflects your loved one’s impeccable taste. Head downtown for a lineup of boutique shops and tasting rooms or choose a few thoughtful gifts at Hayseed and Housdon, famous for crafting hand-picked, hand-sorted and truly handmade wines. From a lovely and light rose that’ll pair perfectly with your BFF’s upbeat nature or a stately pinot noir to impress the boss, you’ll find awesome holiday goodies for everyone on your list PLUS they provide a portion of their proceeds to non-profits!!! Who doesn’t love that feel-good giving or receiving of fabulous wine all while supporting worthy non-profits?
Glam for all
You clean up nice: The holidays are all about upping the ante (of course, around here that night just means donning a new pair of cowboy boots). If you’re feeling a little fancy, there’s only one place to trot downtown: Eleven Twenty-Two Speakeasy & Cocktail Lounge. This elegant hideaway is Paso’s best-kept semi-secret, serving up delicious cocktails in an alluringly retro setting. Whether you’re dressed to the nines or just feel like a million bucks, all you need is a simple password (knock-knock) to enter this non-exclusive club. From Thanksgiving to New Years, there’s always a reason to cheers. The holidays never felt so swanky!
