Enjoy a leisurely elevated tour and tasting experience at Chateau Margene, where the wines are crafted with uncompromising quality. Your tour and tasting includes an upscale wine tasting, delicious cheese plate and a lovely spin around the vineyard.

Breathe easy knowing that it’ll all be waiting for you the moment you arrive. The best stuff in life, it seems, just can’t be rushed. Paso winemakers tend to agree!

Sink into a cozy armchair with a good book and enjoy a glass of wine in front of the lovely wood burning stove. Plus, this wine country oasis is located just 1.5 miles from downtown Paso Robles, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds: nature and commerce. Spend your days wine tasting amid gorgeous scenery or head downtown, where fantastic shopping and dining options await. Yes, please!

Taste from the barrel at Bella Luna
Straight from the source: Wine education doesn’t have to be boring or tedious. In fact, at Bella Luna, it can be downright entertaining and relaxing. Join this laid back Templeton winery for a private tasting through fabulous wines yet to be released. Unlike traditional bottle tastings, you’ll sample up-and-coming vino straight from the barrel—a rare experience, indeed. Not only will you gain hands-on knowledge of the winemaking and aging process, you’ll also be invited to savor a tasting of current vintages after your tour of the barrel room is complete. What are you waiting for? These wines aren’t getting any fresher!
