Around here, each day is worthy of celebration and each meal a chance to reconnect, rejoice and unwind.

Join us as we raise a glass to you! Not sold? Here’s five reasons we say you should really live a little.

You’re going to like it

Here’s a bold statement: You’ll never get bored of Paso Robles Wines. Why’s that? Well, there are just so darn many to choose from! From award-wining Rhone, Bordeaux, Spanish, and Italian varietals to bold blends, fresh whites and sparklings galore, there’s never a dull moment when you’re sipping on Paso wines. Truly, every tastebud can have its way as you traverse this diverse and multi-layered wine region. Once you pop, you just can’t to stop, as they say. I mean, with these many choices, why would you ever want to?

Prove it: If there were any winery to showcase Paso’s amazing microclimates and offerings, Lone Madrone is it! Crafting boutique wines from a smattering of renowned biodynamic, organically grown Westside vineyards, each vintage is totally unique (and totally Paso)! I mean, they even have English-inspired hard cider on the tasting list—so you know the sky’s the limit when it comes to options!

Wine tasting is fun

If you haven’t been wine tasting in a while, let us blow your expectations through the roof. With more than 250 wineries and tasting rooms dotting our scenic countryside, every trip to Paso is another opportunity to explore. (Grab our Paso Robles Wine Country map, the ONLY map that has EVERY winery represented – others are missing up to half the wineries.) From casual lounges serving incredible food to sunny outdoor patios nestled amongst stately oaks, you’ll find the perfect place to sit, sip and swirl the afternoon away. Whoever said wine tasting is stuffy had never come to Paso. In fact, many of our tasting rooms feature laid back barbecues and vibrant winemaker dinners, exciting live bands, educational barrel tastings and jaw-dropping vineyard tours. Grab your overnight bag or just a pair of shades—adventure awaits and you won’t want to miss a moment!

Prove it: In Paso Robles, even our hotels have their own wineries! Well, that’s the case for Allegretto Vineyard Resort, a plush stay with all the charms of European villa. No, you don’t have to stay at the resort to try the wine in the resort’s wine tasting room, but with luxurious amenities and spa treatments, you’ll probably want to! And if you want to hang out at their gorgeous Westside tasting room on Vineyard Drive, you’ll swoon over the scenic outdoor areas with a pond, towering willow and oak trees and a view of their historic Allegretto shares this tasting room with Rangeland, noted below…see the photo!)

It makes you happier

We’re 100% biased, but there might be something to the idea that wine and happiness are linked (stay with us here). The ancient Romans knew it, the late great kings and queens knew it too: life is just better with good wine in your goblet and a bit of cheese on your plate. Take it from us, modern life is hard enough without denying yourself a little sip of pleasure now and then (or in our case, a big sip enjoyed daily). That said, everyone should drink Paso Robles wine responsibly. Above all else, stick to our credo: don’t worry, drink happy!

Prove it: Feel the bubbles dance under your nose and ask yourself, “is this making me happy?” The answer, if you’re tasting sparkling wines at Kiame Wine Cellars, must be a resounding “Yes!” With celebratory wines made the artisanal way, each sip brings you closer to a feeling of total zen. Well, almost (we can be sure they’ll make you smile along with their 2 miniature goats cruising freely to everyone’s Instagramable delight)!

It makes you healthy(ish)

You already knew this fun fact, but it’s worth repeating. Numerous epidemiological studies have observed that moderate intake of alcohol including wine is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Not bad! In fact, several authors state that moderate consumption of wine is more beneficial than that of beer or spirits. In other words: if you’re going to have a glass of alcohol for your health, drink the best wine you can get your hands on. That’s just sound medical advice.

Prove it: This is just the medicine the doctor ordered! Michael Gill’s lush syrah offerings (many of which have won numerous gold metals and high scores) are a sure-fire cure for whatever ails you. It doesn’t hurt that the tasting room is fashioned like a plush, old school hunting lodge, either. We’ll take all our sick days here, thank you!

We see the glass half full

Not only are we a friendly and personable bunch, Paso Robles is also leading the way in the production of green, sustainably crafted wines. SIP Certified vineyards are everywhere in Paso, which means you can rest assured that the land, native animals and workers are always honored and protected along the production line from grape to glass. In Paso Robles, we know that it all comes together when the right factors: environment, passion and people—set out to create wine that truly reflects (and respects) our little slice of the world.

Prove it: Sustainable, authentic and totally delicious wines: that’s what you get when you venture to Rangeland, where ranching meets winemaking. From sustainably raised grass-fed beef to eco-conciously crafted wines grown nearby native streams, plants and wildlife, you can taste Paso’s remarkable abundance in every last sip.
