Still Waters Vineyards 2020 Pinot Gris
Zippity do-dah: Surrounded by astoundingly gorgeous rural scenery, Still Waters Vineyards is a must-see for your spring itinerary! As far as whites, go, we’re big fans of the winery’s 2020 Pinot Gris, a light-bodied offering with firm acidity and flavors of zippy lime, white nectarine and delicate honey. Kick back in a deck chair and toast to the green hills of Paso or bring a few bottles home and throw an epic backyard bash for the neighbors. While this wine is fabulous savored all on its own, you could just as easily pair it chilled alongside calamari, white pizza, seared scallops, or a charcuterie board for optimum wow-factor.
Tooth and Nail Winery 2020 Chenin Blanc
Fairytale dreams do come true: Well, at least they do in Paso Robles Wine Country! Take a magical trek to Tooth and Nail Winery, where the gothic castle ambiance elevates your Springtime tasting to new heights of whimsy. The winery’s gilded 2020 Destinata Chenin Blanc is as glorious to admire in the glass at as it is to sip moat-side. An ultra-fresh and sun-kissed offering, you’ll notice a fresh and energetic vibe that begs to be savored now (never later). Truly, there’s never been a better time to luxuriate in fresh orchard fruit flavor touched with a hint of lemongrass. If this isn’t the royal treatment, we’re not sure what is.
Sculpterra 2021 Viognier
Dream on: Seeking an otherworldly experience that combines Paso’s pastoral spring vibes and fine wine? Stroll the manicured lawns of Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture Garden and you’ll feel a little like Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole. Of course, the winery’s massive statues depicting exotic animals are all part of this unique charm! Unscrew Sculpterra’s 2021 Viognier and you’ll fall deeper still: enchanting flavors of grapefruit, honeydew and cantaloupe finish with a wallop of vibrant acidity. With a brilliant straw hue and aromas that jump forward with each twirl of the glass, this wine will taste fabulous today, tomorrow or even in 2025!
Copia Vineyards 2019 White
Hang ten: It’s a common saying, but very true: Great whites begin in the vineyard, and not all vineyards sites are created equal. Case in point: Copia Vineyards’ 2019 White, a beautiful 100% chardonnay offering sourced from two world class vineyards nestled at the Eastern edge of the Santa Rita Hills appellation. Both sites receive glorious ocean influences, with one family-owned vineyard positioned just nine miles from the Pacific! A charismatic cool-climate Chardonnayt; you’ll notice an intense burst of citrus blossom, tropical notes, hazelnut, white peach and a saline-like minerality. Think Burgundian vibes with a beachy, California twist!
Donati Family Wines Reserve Albarino
All about that albarino: Whether you’re sipping poolside or lounging on your front porch, you should totally reach for a crisp albarino this spring. Why? Allow us to introduce Donati Family Wines’ take on the Spanish varietal, perfect for hot days and easy outdoor dinners. Super food friendly and totally approachable, this crowd-pleasing bottle showcases white nectarine on the nose and a clean banana finish that quenches beautifully. Want to enjoy this wine in its natural habitat? Check out Donati’s spring events, where you can grab a bottle while appreciating the unmatched beauty of Highway 46. Now that’s refreshing stuff!
