5 Reasons to Use your Vacation days in Paso Robles

In Paso Robles Wine Country, vacation days are meant to be spent, not squandered. Did you know that the last Tuesday in January is National Plan for Vacation Day? No, we didn’t just make that up! National Plan for Vacation Day (NPVD) is a day to encourage Americans to plan their vacation days for the whole year at the start of the year—and inspire them to use those days to explore somewhere new.

5 Life Lessons We’ve Learned from Paso Wine

Can Paso wine teach us a life lesson or two? If you ask us, Paso Robles winemakers share a lot of similarities to history’s greatest philosophers. Why? Vineyards make great professors! From showing us how to embrace our age to daring us to take big leaps of faith, Paso Robles wine has much to teach us about a life well lived. As we step into a new year, let’s all take a moment to appreciate the glowing nuggets of wisdom we’ve already received right here in Paso Robles Wine Country. If these bottles could speak, here’s exactly what they’d say:

Go with the flow

Don’t force it: When allowed to thrive without intervention, vines do their best work. This applies to humans, too! At Bella Luna, wines are terroir-driven and grown with a dry-farmed, minimalistic approach. What does that mean, exactly? In a nutshell, the winemaker allows nature to take its course. This doesn’t mean that the wines are “meh,” however. On the contrary! It simply means that the winemaker works with fate, not against it. You might be surprised to know that Bella Luna’s most intense fruit comes from their estate vineyard’s “rock pile,” made up of alluvial river bottom. According to experts, this dry, unforgiving soil is incredible for growing rockstar grapes. Next time you’re between a rock and a hard place, ask yourself: “How can I grow from this?” The results will speak for themselves.

Age gracefully

True beauty never fades: In Paso Robles Wine Country, age isn’t just a number–it’s a huge reason to celebrate! At Brecon Estate, Paso’s oldest cabernet sauvignon vines stand proudly–not unlike those smile lines you’ve incurred over years of love and laughter. In fact, Brecon’s chic and elegant tasting room and winery are nestled next to these old vines, an homage to the sage soothsayers who recognized the outstanding terroir and possibilities of Paso’s westside. It’s not just that their vines continue to age beautifully, either: Brecon’s sophisticated wine offerings keep surpassing all expectations year after year with Damien’s (winemaker/partner) extraordinary talent. Take a tip from this time-honored winery and cherish time’s ability to add character, structure and charm. Every vintage is remarkably beautiful.

Enjoy the little moments

Savor each sip: “The days are long, but the years are short.” Can you relate to this wistful sentiment? Take some advice from Riboli Family Wines and learn to enjoy life’s little moments more often. At the winery’s Paso Robles tasting room you can linger over a fabulous tasting or sit down for a big bistro meal with friends and family. Featuring Italian staples like gourmet pizzas, pastas and salads, there’s always a delicious bite to pass around (plus local favorites like the oak-smoked angus beef tri-tip sandwich with grilled onions, horseradish and mozzarella). In Paso Robles Wine Country, good food brings people together like nothing else. Add a splash of world class wine and you’ve got stellar memories-in-the-making. Don’t blink and you could miss this magic moment!

Take the leap

And the rest is history: Many Paso Robles winemakers share a similar backstory: Before moving to Paso, they took a huge leap of faith. What are you working up the courage to do? Copia Vineyards would not exist if Anita and Varinder Sahi had taken a life-changing jump. Before opening Copia, the couple led dramatically different lives: He, as an engineer and businessman and she, a restaurant and marketing veteran. After a chance trip to Paso Robles Wine Country in 2015, they made the dramatic decision to commit to a whole new venture: wine. Two short years later, the couple found the perfect site to produce premium Rhône and Bordeaux varietals. It’s no wonder that Copia means “abundance or plenty,” an apt name for a winery born from the idea that the glass is always half full!

Be yourself

The real deal: Why fake it? There’s only one you. In Paso Robles Wine Country, winemakers are famous for bucking the status quo and getting down with their bad selves. Sure, Paso might be an award-winning wine region, but we still know how to have fun and express a unique vision. Echoing Paso’s pioneering spirit, Iron Oaks Winery marches to the beat of a different drum. From coyly-named small-batch blends that sell out in a flash to upholding a rugged, cowboy atmosphere in their tasting room, you’re always getting an authentic taste of Paso when you kick your boots up here. Even better? The popular wine hangout (which also sells local grass-fed beef) will reopen in a brand new downtown location in 2023! Come as you are and let the good times roll.

2023 Paso Wine Resolutions

New year, new wine! January is all about uncorking the possibilities in Paso Robles Wine Country. With more than 300 tasting rooms, incredible lodging and unique events, there’s plenty of ways to chase your next craving in Paso. Not only will you kick off the New year with awesome experiences—you’ll also take advantage of our “off-season chill factor.” Sounds like a win-win to us! Now, go boldly forth and drink it all in.

Get out of your comfort zone

Shake it up: Whether it’s those comfy leggings or that binge-worthy TV show, we’re all guilty of falling into ruts. Don’t let this happen with your 2023 wine selections! With dozens of Paso-grown varieties to choose from, you’ll never find yourself reaching for the same bottle twice. Ready to explore? We recommend trying something adjacent to (but different than) your preferred pick. If you’re a fan of distinctive whites, pick up Tooth and Nail’s 2021 Statis Gruner Vetliner, a classic Austrian variety made with coastal California soul. Sleek, vibrant and super refreshing, this white is anything but boring. Is it your next favorite? You’ll never know till you try!

Good to the last bite: When’s the last time you sat down to a truly spectacular lunch? If the answer escapes you, it’s time to tickle those tastebuds anew. In Paso Robles Wine Country, we know how to dine! Plus, no need to book a fancy white tablecloth affair if you don’t want to. Grab a picnic to go from Thomas Hill Organics (we recommend the pork belly tacos or banh mi sandwich) and make a beeline to the Hayseed and Housdon unique “garage” tasting room in downtown Paso, where you can book a private tasting with winemaker Ted Ross (who happens to the best host to hang with – Hayseed and Housdon has a 5 star, PERFECT rating on Google!). Yes, tasting rooms around here actually encourage folks to bring food, while many others serve full-on meals made-to-order (what a concept). What can we say: We think everyone should indulge more and diet less in 2023!

Expect more to love this January and February: enjoy the breadth of our food and wine offerings, sans excess crowds. Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture garden is the perfect place to escape. Featuring sprawling areas studded with statues, and majestic trees, you’ll enjoy food truck fare paired with live music every Saturday and Sunday. Meet ya there!

5 Reasons to Drink Paso Cabernet Sauvignon

 

 

As if you need a good reason to drink Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon, home of the 7th top wine of world – read on! (But if you do, here’s a few). Balanced and bold, Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon is a timeless classic for a reason. Fruit-forward, savory and age-worthy, this ever-popular varietal is a total showstopper! Whether you’re hosting a few friends for dinner or picking out the perfect anniversary wine, Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon is an excellent choice. Maybe we’re biased, but our more than 300+ tasting room attendants tend to agree. In Paso Robles Wine Country, cab will always be king!

Food friendly

The delicious truth: Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon plays well with food. The wine’s complex and layered vibes coax magic out of even the most basic dishes, whether it be spaghetti night or backyard barbeque. Thanks to its higher tannins and savory character, you’ll find fat and umami-based dishes pair exceptionally well with this iconic red. Think: steak, burgers, robust cheeses, Italian pasta dishes and tomato-based soups and stews. Here’s one to drool over: Robert Hall Winery’s 2018 Cavern Select Cabernet Sauvignon, with aromas of black currant, tarragon and pipe tobacco. We recommend enjoying alongside grilled lamb chops, decadent chocolate desserts or aged blue cheese. When’s dinner? (Hungry? Robert Hall has a full-on restaurant that includes an amazing wine and food pairing menu!)

Awesome on its own

Standalone flavor: You can also just as easily enjoy a glass of Paso cab all by its lonesome! Thanks to the wine’s full-bodied texture and rich flavors of dark fruit, you need no other accompaniment. Aromas of dried herbs round out a truly pleasurable experience, so be sure to swirl the glass, take a big whiff and sip slowly. Here’s a fun one to enjoy solo: Ecluse Wines’ 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which took 91 POINTS FROM Wine Enthusiast. Deep purple in color, you’ll savor elegant aromas of black cherry, currant, vanilla cola, caramel and a hint of honeysuckle. It all leads to luscious notes of black cherry, baking spice, dark chocolate and vanilla on the palate. Yes, it’s self-care in a bottle!

Grows great in Paso

Star crop: Did you know that cabernet sauvignon is a hybrid grape? Originally formed by the crossing of cabernet franc (a red grape) and sauvignon blanc (a white grape), this famous red wine grows incredibly well in Paso Robles. Thanks to our long, temperate growing season and dynamic terroir, these wines are exceptionally well balanced (and, oftentimes, award-winning). Looking for a vine-ripened example? Try Brecon Estate’s 2019 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which garnered 96 POINTS from Somm Journal in 2022. Sourced from the winery’s 58-year-old cab vine (the oldest planted in Paso), you’ll get a good impression of our star crop. Nicely balanced with lingering notes of dark forest fruit, this wine proves that we make the best cab in the land. Period.

Crowd pleaser

Popularity comes easy: Hope Family Wines, named 2022 American WINERY OF THE YEAR by Wine Enthusiast, is home to the iconic Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon that WON TOP 7th WINE IN THE WORLD. Another fun fact! Cabernet Sauvignon is the world’s most popular red wine. It only takes one delicious bottle of Paso cab to understand why. A full body, moderate acidity and balanced tannins are bolstered by loveable fruit overtones. Who doesn’t want that? Next time you need to please a crowd, reach for Hope Family Wines’ Treana Cabernet Sauvignon 2021. With an alluring depth of color and intense nose, this wine features universally beloved flavors of rich blackberry, warm vanilla, toasted coffee and black cherry. Finishing strong with firm-yet-refined tannins, this alluring wine is sure to have everyone at your table smiling in agreement.

Age-worthy

Long live the king: Wine is alive. When cab enters the bottle, its story continues. Over the years, a Paso cab might develop concentrated aromas or smooth, integrated tannins. The fun is in the waiting! How to know if a bottle is age-worthy? Grab a quality cab from Paso. Due to complex flavors, firm tannins and lively acidity, the aging process is a beautiful journey. Lone Madrone’s 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of an age-worthy cab that only grows in power: Rich and structured, the winery’s 27th cab vintage features vibrant fruit led by classic blackcurrant vibes. Although quite appealing as a young offering, this bottle is sure to wow after a few years of rest. Patience sure pays great dividends when you invest in the right wine! (Visit Lone Madrone and savor their wines with an elevated, limited seated Pinnacle Tasting in their new lounge with your dedicated wine expert.)

5 Paso Wine Experiences to Look Forward to in 2023

Happy almost New Year! We’ll let you in on a little secret. In Paso Robles Wine Country, our resolutions aren’t always met with–shall we say–flying colors. Hey! We’re only human. That said, we always have a win to look forward to in the coming year, whether we work for it or not. Why’s that? With more than 250 tasting rooms and hundreds of incredible food and wine experiences to savor, there’s never a dull moment on our calendar. Whether you stay up till midnight or hit the hay at 8 p.m. sharp, we’ve got you. 2023 is going to be the most delicious one yet! Here’s a tiny taste of what’s to come in Paso Robles Wine Country soon. 

Harmony Cellars Evening of Chardonnay

Why we’re looking forward: Perched atop a hill overlooking the tiny hamlet of Harmony, California (population 18, if you count the cows), Harmony Cellars is a true hidden gem nestled along the coast. Not far from Paso Robles and in close proximity to Highway 1, this heavenly tasting room offers up the best of land and sea. And what goes with a dreamy little trip up the coast? Chardonnay of course! If this is your favorite varietal (or even just one of your top five), this event needs to be on your radar. Enjoy an evening celebrating Harmony Cellars’ chardonnay in all its varieties: sparkling, stainless steel-aged and oaked. Of course, the wine is complemented by delectable, French-inspired hors d’oeuvres from Baguette About It. Ironically, all we can say is this one’s going to be unforgettable.

5 Reasons Why Paso Wine Country is a Winter Wonderland

As our old friend Bing Crosby likes to croon this time of year, “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”. But before you imagine gleaming, snow-covered houses and piping hot cups of cider, allow your friends in Paso Robles Wine Country to give you a very different perspective on the season. Winter in Paso Robles means less crowds, great weather and our signature combination of warm hospitality and world class food and wine. This holiday, why not unwrap the greatest gift of all? That is, of course, a winter wonderland escape to wine country. Yes, a pony would be nice too!

The Weather

Baby, it’s nice outside: Snow is so overrated. Paso Robles Wine Country’s weather forecast is sunny year round, with only a few rare exceptions. With two elegant tasting rooms to choose from—one in Paso Robles and another in Edna Valley—Sextant Wines is all about enjoying that breezy Paso lifestyle, even in the dead of winter. The holidays come alive with Sextant wines, home of bold Bordeaux offerings, earthy pinot noir and iconic chardonnay. Stop in for a tasting flight, bask on their sun dappled Edna Valley patio and be sure to pick up a few bottles for stocking stuffers. Heading out, don’t forget to grab a pair of shades. No need for that ugly sweater after all…

The Jolliness

Santa vacations here: In Paso Robles Wine Country, the holidays aren’t the only time we smile. In fact, most Paso people are simply on the “nice list,” year after year (it’s better to just accept this fact than to wonder why). When you taste at Paso Robles’ more than 300 wine tasting rooms, you’ll enjoy personalized service with a genuine caring touch. At Seven Oxen Estate Wines, you’ll meet some truly kind-hearted folks, to be sure. Choose from a private Vineyard and Winery Tour hosted by winemaker Bastian Leduc that encompasses a stroll along the winery’s stunning 130-acre property or go for the Winery Tour, with a private tasting spanning all current offerings in the Seven Oxen Cellar. Either way, you’re sure to make an awesome new friend or three.

We don’t need no stinking sugar plums: As evidenced by our fabulous wines, Paso Robles Wine Country is blessed with some incredibly dynamic soil. But did you know that truffles—one of the Earth’s most coveted culinary ingredients—can be found right here in Paso? That’s right. No need to travel all the way to France for a truffle hunt: Join Caelesta Wines, Vineyard + Truffière for a morning hunt through their breathtaking Paso property followed by lunch paired with truffles and Caelesta wines. Hunts take place in December, January and February and are sure to help you walk off (and put back on) some holiday calories. Yes, Paso Robles is full of sumptuous surprises, indeed.

Check out the chef’s latest kitchen offerings and be prepared for a little drool to escape your mouth. Yes, charcuterie boards, bruschetta, crab cakes, shrimp tempura and even hearty mushroom risotto with New York Strip are all an order away. Pair all this lip-smacking deliciousness with award winning Bordeaux and Rhone-style wines and you just booked yourself a lunch date in heaven.

Wine Club Membership

A club they’ll want to be part of: This one’s so easy it tends to hide right under our noses! What’s the big to-do? A wine club membership ensures your giftee will feel the love all year long, as fresh bottles are shipped several times a year. When it comes to gifting wine club memberships to friends or family, go for a winery that offers up a full array of stunning whites and reds (most clubs allow members to switch their preference, if ever needed). A great contender for Santa’s favorite sign-up? Four Lanterns Winery, which offers a wine club membership we’d be seriously jazzed to join. With a three-bottle, classic six bottle, red wine, white wine and case club to choose from, your giftee will not only enjoy fabulous bottles shipped directly to their door. They’ll also enjoy complimentary in-person tastings and a healthy discount whenever they hit the tasting room. Now that’s the gift that keeps on giving!

5 Paso Wine and Steak Pairings You Should Know

What Paso wine tastes good with steak? If that’s your big question, you’ve come to the right place. In Paso Robles Wine Country, red wines are balanced and rich, providing the ultimate companion to that juicy ribeye, Porterhouse or New York Strip steak. So, what specific wines best compliment a sizzling steak? Meet our go-to cast of dinner companions: cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, malbec and syrah. Not only are these Paso Robles-sourced offerings fabulous on their  own—they have a way of elevating each savory bite. Hungry for more? Let’s slice off a piece of pairing know-how together.

Cabernet Sauvignon – Hope Family Wines

Hail a Cab: Rich, fruit forward and full-bodied, we can confidently say that “cab is king” when it comes to pairing wine with steak. After all, this esteemed varietal provides tangy acidity and ample fruitiness to play off the salt and fat in meat. Paso Robles’ own Hope Family Wines, home to one of Wine Enthusiasts’ Top Ten Wines in the World (incidentally, a cabernet sauvignon), knows this truth all too well. There’s plenty of ravishing reds within their stable to consider, encompassing Austin Hope, Treana, Quest, Liberty School and Troublemaker labels. Our go-to pick? Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon 2020, overflowing with black cherry and smoke-laced silkiness. No doubt about it: This cab will prove a winning match for your next meaty mouthful.

Zinfandel – Bella Luna

Zin it to win it: Balance the buttery and umami elements of your favorite steak with a peppery red that gets the party started. Never tried this crave-worthy combo? A Paso Robles classic, you will fall in love with zinfandel and steak, we can be sure of that. While most zins have an element of “jamminess” that ranges from mild to mega, you’ll find consistent elements of fruity-sweetness and a spicey, tobacco finish across most bottles. Next time you’re grilling up a steak, reach for Bella Luna Wine’s 2017 Fighter Pilot Red and watch the sparks fly. Featuring toasty nuances combined with zesty hints of white pepper, you’ll be flying high in no time. No steak sauce required!

Malbec – Derby Wine Estates

Malbec, meet meat: Did you know that the tannins in red wine—leftover from the grape skins and seeds as well as the barrel aging process—actually work in tandem with your steak? A little science for you: As tannin molecules soften the fat in the meat, they work to release more of that juicy, meaty flavor. Talk about a symbiotic relationship! Deep purple in color, Paso Robles malbec is known for delivering rich, fruity payoff, structured tannins and a hefty, full body mouthfeel. In other words: this variety was made for some serious steak. Make your malbec dreams come true with Derby Wine Estates 2016 offering, featuring a bouquet of plush red fruit and velvety tannins. Yep, those bad boys are ready to do all the work for you. How luxurious is that?

Syrah – Dubost Wine

Chew your wine: It’s not all that surprising that bold Paso Robles syrah has made this list. After all, the varietal is often characterized by its firm tannins and “savory, smokey, herbaceous” allure. If you’re wondering if these meat-like elements mimic steak nicely, spoiler alert (they do). Allow this dry, full-bodied wine to delight you with its one-two punch of bacon-esque charm and brisk acidity. Dubost Wine’s 2018 Syrah is a great choice for a steak and syrah night: Dark, herbal, meaty and altogether savory, you’ll experience strong structure, refined tannins and a tart fruit finish. Sometimes it pays to be a copycat!

Red Blend – Chronic Cellars

Red-y for anything: Our last bit of advice when pairing wine with steak? Don’t think too hard about it. When in doubt, remember that red wines go great with red meat, period. Instead of fussing over the specific varietal, a rockstar red blend is your ticket to an easy and lip smacking decision. When in doubt, go for a Paso Robles GSM (a blend of grenache, syrah and mourvedre), known for bright ripe fruit aromas and a grippy, pepper-and-herb finish. Chronic Cellars’ 2020 Love Machine GSM is ready to whisk you on a joyride through Paso’s El Pomar, Willow Creek, and Adelaida districts—all prime real estate for growing deliciously balanced grapes. Shining notes of candied cranberries, cherry cola, spices and a whiff of lavender make this blend a lazy carnivore love bomb, indeed.
