Two: Taking a selfie or three can be a fun and easy way to capture that fleeting moment forever. Whether you’re wine tasting on a sunny Paso patio, rocking out at a live music event or hanging with friends in the barrel room, Paso Robles Wine Country offers no shortage of photogenic scenery. Ready to snap our rolling hills, lush vineyards and majestic oak trees? Check out these awesome Spring selfie spots worth capturing now:
Bella Luna Winery
Bella of the ball: As far as beauty goes, Bella has it all including winning top honors, 2 consecutive years in a row (never before has a winery won 2 years in a row), for American “Wine of The Year” from the acclaimed International Wine Competition. Top that with the tasting room that also offers Wine Enthusiast awarded, exceptional wines alongside a gorgeous vineyard setting and chill, laid-back feel. Founded by two life-long friends, Bella Luna Estate Winery prides itself on its authenticity: the family-owned operation specializes in boutique dry-farmed, hand-picked wines that shine with Paso-grown passion. Savor the coastal breeze and scenic view from their lovely patio—the perfect Spring selfie spot. As co-owner Kevin Healey says: “You can make bad wine from good grapes, but you can’t make good wine from bad grapes.” When you start with an equally gorgeous setting, capturing great photos becomes just as foolproof.
Shake up your feed: Ready to refresh your social media with a daring pop of color? Chronic Cellars is funky and eclectic, so your selfies are sure to stand out. Thanks to the winery’s vibrant tasting room, quirky decor and playful vibe, there’s never a dull moment to be had (and their top-tier wines are just as bold). Surrounded by vines and featuring a smattering of relaxed outdoor tables and chairs, you can take part in life-size lawn games or simply kick back with an impromptu picnic. Plus, Chronic Cellars’ famously creative and edgy wine labels are endlessly fun to capture. Trust us—you’ll be Instagramming (interestingly) in no time.
Tooth and Nail Winery
Storm the gates: Not all magic castles are found at Disneyland. Head to Tooth and Nail Winery in Paso Robles for all the proof you need: The castle-like exterior features a stone facade, turrets and unique drawbridge-style entrance. And if that weren’t enough of an epic backdrop for your next selfie, the gothic interior is sure to inspire even the most shy shutterbugs in your group. A seemingly never-ending wine list encompassing diverse labels is ready to keep your palate occupied. And Tooth and Nail has the most epic events happening each week that you won’t want to miss including Rooftop Twilight Tastings, Private Inner Sanctum Tastings, Vineyard and Winery Tours, Sunday brunch, Friday Live Music, etc, etc. Meanwhile, your eyes are left to feast on the royal digs!
Robert Hall Winery
Capture classic Paso: For selfies that exemplify Paso’s undeniable charm, Robert Hall Winery is a photogenic choice. Nestled in the heart of Paso Wine Country, you’ll enjoy stunning views of surrounding vineyards and hills, impressive architecture, dining among 100+ year old olive trees and a tasting room dripping in casual elegance. A spacious hangout with high ceilings, vast windows and elevated decor, you might just let the ambiance get to your head. Not sure where to start? Reserve your seat for a paired culinary experience or tour of the barrel room where you will learn about their Regenerative versus Sustainably Farmed multi-year study – the first ever such study conducted world-wide. Every corner of this world-class winery is ready for the spotlight.
Picture this: Not all tasting rooms are traditionally “fancy.” Venteux Vineyards is picturesque to the core featuring rustic-chic decor and an intimate vibe. Wood beams, vintage furnishings and colorful artwork make for a warm and inviting selfie backdrop. Plus, a lush outdoor tasting area overlooks sweeping views of surrounding vineyards, a great place to sip handcrafted Rhone offerings with your crew. Check out who’s playing the boot-stomping outdoor stage or bring Fido for a country fresh photo opp on the lawn. You can even check-in to comfort with the cozy onsite lodging. Take a peek for yourself (these stays are designed with your next selfie in mind).
