5 Ways to Boost Your Wine Knowledge and Confidence

 

When we first start drinking fine wine, we might use simple adjectives like “delicious,” to describe the experience. Sure, you can probably tell that the Paso Robles grown Cab you’re drinking is fruit-forward, but you might want to dive a little deeper: Is it tart like a blackberry? Sweet, like a ripe cherry? Jammy and nuanced like spiced plum compote?

If wine lingo tends to throw you off, no worries. In Paso Robles wine country, tasting is all about being accessible, friendly and educational (never stuffy). We know you don’t have time or to study like a sommelier. That’s why we’ve developed this quick and easy five sensory checklist to ensure you’re truly appreciating—and not just sipping—that bottle of Paso Robles wine. No, none of this will be on the test!

Feast with your eyes

See what’s in front of you. Take a moment to behold the beauty in your hands. Here’s how: Hold up a napkin or paper towel to your wine glass (a white background really helps keep the color in clear contrast). Is your wine blood red, more or a purple tone or a true, brilliant garnet? You should also make a note of the opacity of your wine (a.k.a. how much light shines through when you hold it up to the window). If you’re enjoying a nice white, does it have a tinge of gold or straw hue to it? Is the “core” of the wine a slightly brighter color than the outer edges? They say you eat with your eyes first. Well, it’s the same for wine tasting, too!

Sip the rainbow:

A bottle of 2018 Rio Seco Vineyard and Winery Rosé isn’t just bright and delightful on the palate—it’s a sight to behold: the color is a true, warm pink with a flushed, salmon core. “Pretty” doesn’t even begin to describe this one.

Swirl (carefully)

You’ve probably seen folks swirl with abandon before taking a first sip—and it does look fancy, doesn’t it? While it’s true that all wine enthusiasts have their own unique swirling style (some keep their glass conservatively on the table; others swirl wildly with one fluid motion), there is a point behind this universal commotion. In fact, swirling causes a layer of wine to coat the inside of the glass, increasing its evaporation rate (and its scent). An initial five-second swirl will lift the fragrances into the glass, but some wines—especially richer reds—will also need to be decanted (a fancy name for what you do when you swirl). Think about swirling like turning up the volume on your car stereo. Suddenly, you’ll be primed to smell the bouquet ten times better than before. Just be careful not to swirl too enthusiastically…mishaps are known to happen.

Motion of devotion:

A healthy swirl of Seven Oxen’s 2016 Zinfandel conjures up a clean, peppery nose that contrasts beautifully with flavors of peach preserves, tobacco and sweet cream.

Use your nose

Smell like you mean it! Now, it’s time to  really enjoy the full bouquet of your wine (and as we all know, smell accounts for most of any flavor experience). Really, don’t be shy! Poke your nose as far into that wine as the glass will allow. Is it floral? If so, what flowers are coming to mind, whether they be honeysuckle or violet? Is the wine herbaceous, like rosemary? Vegetal, like bell pepper or fresh cut grass? Do you smell chocolate, caramel, toast or vanilla notes common in the oak aging process? Some wines feature an elusive minerality factor akin to the scent of wet stone. Once you start linking smells to their real-life counterparts, you’ll be surprised at the words that come to mind. Juicy Fruit bubblegum? Peanut butter and jelly? Stranger aromatics have occurred. Trust us.

Sniff, sniff, hooray:

Eberle Winery’s 2019 Estate Chardonnay boasts a bouquet that is unmistakably oaky, which is quite common for a rich, classic chardonnay style. Still, a layered whiff of green apple and zesty Meyer lemon give that old school buttery profile a fresh twist.

Gulp greatly

Are you ready to take a big, big sip? Yes, you’re going to take mega-sip that is far larger than you ever would at a social hangout. You may even slurp it a bit. Why are we asking you to forget your table manners? It’s all for good reason. See, you’re trying to get as much information about the wine as you can, and the more wine in your mouth, the easier your tasting detective work will be. Seriously: Try coating every last tastebud! You’ll get a much more dynamic taste, every time. Whether you gurgle, chew or swish, the important thing is that you keep the wine in your mouth for a few seconds. Is it on the sweeter side, or completely dry (void of all sweetness)? Do you feel the tingle at the sides of your tongue that indicate a citrus-like acidity? How does the scent of the wine boost or contrast with the fruit flavor and/or presence of oak? What fruit or foods come to mind? These are all big flavor questions and  fantastically fun to figure out.

Have fun with flavor:

“Burnt cherry” is undoubtedly a good thing when it comes to the flavor profile of Hoyt Family Vineyards Grenache, well balanced with smokey pepper and gardenia aromas.

Feel your way

Reach out and touch it. Wait, there’s more! Your wine sensory checklist is lacking without lastly considering the mouthfeel of the wine. If you’ve never considered this element before—or always felt a little confused when people spoke about it—you’re not alone. However, we are here to show that it is one of the easiest parts of the whole experience. Trust us: You don’t need to “feel” the wine with your fingers to sense that a higher alcohol merlot is fuller bodied or more viscous in your mouth than a delicate pinot noir. Lighter bodied wines will truly feel more sheer (less syrupy) as you swish it over your tongue. Ask yourself: Is this wine thicker, like a sauce, or thinner, like a fine broth? Is it the texture of juice, milk, or more like water? Similarly, there is no mystery behind the idea of tannin: Simply recall the last time you had black tea or walnuts, and consider how much of this moisture-wicking power your glass holds. Yes, now you finally know what “soft” tannins mean (yep: less tannin). Look at you—already a master of the lingo.

More than a feeling:

Spicy, tart and dark, Harmony Cellars 2017 Petite Sirah features lush, velvety tannins and a rich texture that coats the palate for a long, supple finish.

With sprawling green lawns, fragrant flowers and plenty of comfy outdoor lounge furniture to kick back on, you’ll find yourself falling down the rabbit hole in no time!

Greet the birds at Brecon

A little birdie told us you were looking for a pastoral place to while away the hours under a clear blue sky. Sounds like you need to savor the small batch estate wines at Brecon Estate, by far the best place to get your picture-perfect picnic fix! Discover the story that lives within each precious bottle and bask in the natural beauty all around you. Surrounded by acres of leafy vines, the patio and garden area is a lush, cool locale where wine education meets enlightenment. Take your time exploring the lively lineup, which includes crisp, refreshing whites, unique, exciting reds and premium estate and single vineyard discoveries. Smart bird, right?

The real deal at Rangeland

Want to understand the true terroir of Paso Robles Wine Country? Well, my friend, you’ve come to the right place. Steeped in agricultural tradition and inspired by the dynamic microclimate, Rangeland Wines offers up boutique bottles grown as close to the soil as you can get. Sip field-crafted, sustainably made wines under the shade of stately trees all overlooking a glassy pond. Bold red blends are a speciality here (as is their estate grass-fed beef, which you can totally take home with you). That’s Paso Robles, all right: where cowboy hats and high caliber wine collide.

Over the hills and far away at Sixmilebridge

No need to roam too far. At Sixmilebridge, the dream is as simple as it is accessible: to make the finest small batch, premium Bordeaux style blends and Cabernet Sauvignon. Who doesn’t love that? To achieve this aim, the winemaker pulls exclusively from organically farmed westside Paso Robles estate vineyards (you’ve got to try these offerings to understand their majesty). Luckily for us fashionistas, Sixmilebridge’s chic outdoor tasting room feels as if it were torn from a faraway fairytale land where high style and cool design unite. Meet you there!?

Paso Robles wine Country is for dreamers—and our tasting room gardens are the dreamiest, to be sure. From the fragrant rose bushes and lush lawn at Chateau Margene (where you can enjoy lunch – order 1 day ahead) to the towering works of art found at Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture Garden, your grandest garden fantasies can bloom into reality in Paso. Don’t believe us? See for yourself with our handy virtual tour guide of the region! Virtually “stroll” the green grounds and breathe in the fresh, clean air. You can almost smell the jasmine, right?

5 Halloween Candy and Paso Wine Pairings

 

It’s that time of year once again—yes, that marvelous season when we get to bust open a bag of fun-sized candy and pop a few bottles of Paso Robles wine. Halloween candy, meet wine. Wine, meet Halloween candy. We’re all going to be good friends by the time this blog post is done! Without any further rambling, here’s our favorite sugar-laced pairings for Halloween 2020. Hey, it’s hard work but someone’s got to do it! And you can do it too! Zoom your Halloween party with your friends and fam. You can savor these awesome pairings together and hand out a prize for the best costume! (Yes these wineries will mail the wines right to ya’ll.)

Snickers and Four Lanterns Winery Right Bank Merlot

It’s time to give merlot a second chance, friends. After all, top tier Paso Robles wineries like Four Lanterns Winery are producing refined and elegant expressions of this once misunderstood varietal (Enter: Four Lanterns 2015 Right Bank Merlot). A substantial, velvety mouthfeel and intense black cherry/plum vibes can stand up to the Snickers’ rich, chocolatey heft. Plus, toasty oak undertones in the wine bring out the nuttiness of the peanuts and grandeur of all that caramel. Luxurious? Oh yeah. Better preserve your appetite for this one. This combo is more than a mere pairing. It’s a downright meal!

Gummy Bears and Peachy Canyon Classic Rosé

Worms, stars, bears, skulls—it doesn’t really matter what shape this subtly fruity, addictively chewy confection takes. All you need to know is that you’ve got to pair gummy candy with rosé. Trust us, we’re the professionals after all, and our new favorite pink will do the trick! Peachy Canyon’s 2018 Classic Rosé is lively and fresh (unlike your social life these days). Aromas of strawberry, guava, and lychee lead to a bright and juicy flavor bomb in the mouth (think fresh peaches, nectarines, and mandarin oranges). If this pairing doesn’t taste absolutely dreamy, you’ve probably opted for a sour gummy candy. We do not advise this! Abort mission.

Butterfinger and Parrish Family Vineyard 2018 Sauvignon Blanc

No one puts a finger on our Butterfinger! This Halloween favorite (really, a year-round favorite) is a classic that mom, daughter and grandma can all agree on. But with wine? Yes, this was a tall order, but we’ve figured out the delicious riddle. After a bit of trial and error, we now know that Parrish Family Vineyard’s 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was made for the job. As it turns out, the salty sweetness of the Butterfinger loves the tangy tart apple and lime notes in the wine (think creamy peanut butter slathered on sour apple slices). Plus, the whole combo is balanced by the wine’s graceful minerality and freshness. Yes, we are proud of this one.

Dark Chocolate Kit Kat and Lusso Della Terra Chocolate Dessert Wine

Chocoholics rejoice! Finally, we’re pairing what you really want deep down in your soul: rich dark chocolate and—well—a dessert wine that harbors a lot of the same characteristics. Skeptics out there are probably worried that this pairing is going to be too “one note.” Don’t fret. Lusso Della Terra’s Chocolate Dessert Wine features bright aromas of ripe blackberries and cherry along with that rich, plum-meets-cocoa flavor you crave. Plus, the crisp, airy wafer hiding under all that sumptuous dark chocolate in the Kit Kat is going to give you some much-needed crunch. If “chocolate on chocolate” is your go-to flavor combo (it’s certainly mine), you’re going to adore this. Vanilla lovers need not apply.

Candy Corn and Sextant Winery’s 2018 Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands

Wait! You’ve probably resolved to skip this pairing, because—let’s face it—no one in the history of the world has ever gone out of their way to consume candy corn. Here’s the thing though: inevitably, a few morsels of this weird waxen treat will make their way into your house. We don’t know how or why—we don’t make the rules! When this happens, be ready. A chilled glass of Sextant Winery’s 2018 Reserve Chardonnay will transform your view on this topic forever. Notes of lemongrass, pear and coconut play with the candy corn’s sweet, almost Marzipan-like nuttiness. A classic expression of chardonnay, the wine itself is downright buttery, which—you guessed it—picks up on the butter tones in the aforementioned corn. Yep. Just like that, your mind has been blown!

5 Spooky Paso Robles Wines to Savor this October

It’s October, and the wizards are marching in! Pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons and, in Paso Robles Wine Country, the clinking of wine glasses—usher in the age old tradition of Halloween. This year, trick-or-treating may be discouraged, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go big on decorations, scary movies, and candy. Pair these reds with your favorite fun-sized Snickers and give in to the dark side.

It’s actually kind of eerie how well Paso Robles wines fit into the fall festivities, including the all new virtual wine tasting Hallo-WINE costume party put on by ONX…see below for details!

Devilish charm – Chronic Cellars

Take this red by the horns: With haunting labels emblazoned with undead designs, Chronic Cellars pops out as the perfect visual accompaniment to that plate of spider sugar cookies. This Halloween season, get acquainted with the winery’s 2018 El Perfecto, a mesmerizing blend of zinfandel, tempranillo and petite sirah (you’re sure to spot the handsome red devil on the front of this bottle). Dried candied fruits and cracked pepper prime the palate for magic while sinful cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes entice you to make a deal.

Buy it now: click here

Mapping and directions to Chronic, click here

 

Spice up your night – Bodega de Edgar

Mover over, pumpkin spice latte. Bodega de Edgar’s 2017 La Milla is the most fall-fabulous flavor around. This velvety blend of mourvedre and tempranillo will become your next autumnal obsession thanks to comforting aromas of dark chocolate, leather, cherries and spiced tea. The palate brings in soft tannins, bright acidity, and oodles of baking spices (so no need to turn on the oven). A perfect pairing for a dark chocolate confection or your kid’s candy, it’ll age well into next decade. Waiting ten years to enjoy this wine? Now that’s a scary thought!

Buy it now: click here

Mapping and directions to Bodega de Edgar, click here

Buried pleasure: Dubost Wine

Earthy delights awaken in the night! The skeletons dancing across the label of this Halloween-approved red should tip you off to its rambunctious and darkly delicious nature. One sip of Dubost’s 2013 Vingence and your bones will rattle for more! A grounded blend of tannat, malbec, petite verdot and syrah, this is an inky black sipper made for a cold, dark night. Remember: complexities are to be revealed, level by level. Better get digging.

Dubost WINE TASTING COUPON, click here

Candied fun – Penman Springs

Why let the tots hog the sugar rush this Halloween? Swirl a sweetly satisfying libation and prove that the grown ups really do know how to savor the season. Penman Springs’ 2013 Trembler Trois is all that and a bag of peanut M&Ms: a sweet, full bodied treat flowing with spiced orange blossom honey, cherries and dark roasted nuts. We’d take this port-style wine over a meager sack of Skittles any day of the week.

Buy it now: click here

Penman Springs WINE TASTING COUPON, click here

Mapping and directions to Penman Springs, click here

Fun in the dark: ONX Wines

Are you afraid of the dark? Don’t be. Case in point: ONX Wine’s 2017 Black Orchid, a beastly bottle of 100% petite syrah that is all treat, no trick. Black as a moonless night (and just as mysterious), this opulent wine is loaded with ripe cranberry, fig jam and black currant passion. Stroll the garden after hours, taking in heady aromatics—lavender, plum, vanilla bean—paired with piercing acidity and a mouthwatering feel. It’s going to be a long finish…and an even longer night.

One up your Halloween and join ONX October 31 at 3pm PST for their 1st ever Virtual Halloween Wine & Candy Pairing with Costume Contest! They will send a tasting kit to you with specially selected wines to pair with your favorite Halloween candy. Bonus: the candy is also included in the kit! You’ll also get to flaunt your Halloween costumes to the group with prizes awarded for the scariest, funniest, and most creative costume. This group will max out at 50 participants so make sure to get your tasting kit before they sell out. The DEADline to purchase is October 17 – click here to order. Happy Hallo-WINE!

5 Enchanted Wine Gardens in Paso Robles Wine Country

It’s time to swap Zoom calls for birdsong, and chores for cheery Monarch butterflies. Fine wine, fragrant lavender and bountiful sunshine come out to play in Paso Robles Wine Country, home to dozens of vibrant outdoor tasting rooms. Allow the atmosphere to enchant and delight: Savor incredible wines while bathed in the unmatched beauty of the region. Perhaps you don’t believe in fairies anymore, but you might just believe in magic by the time you’ve explored these 5 ethereal wine country gardens.

Giants slumber at Sculpterra Winery

Tumble through the looking glass: The very word “enchanted” seems to perfectly sum up the lush, creative and truly impressive grounds at Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture Garden in Paso Robles (pictured above too). Here, towering statues of spellbound animals, butterflies and otherworldly creatures guard well-groomed hedges and meandering pathways. Stroll along the grand green expanse, marveling at the works of art (both surrounding you and in your glass).

Enjoy: Bring your own picnic and sample the winery’s 2019 Sauvignon Blanc, famous for its enticing tropical nose and round, fruity palate. You may never wake from this dream—but why would you want to?

Explore: Tasting reservations and walk-ins welcome. Kids and dogs are also invited to enjoy in the landscape. Outside food permitted. Open 10am to 5pm daily.

Just the essentials at JUSTIN

Need a break from civilized life? A long, leisurely drive along Chimney Rock Road in Paso Robles will do the trick (keep your eyes peeled for deer as you cruise). Your destination, of course, continues the natural theme: Climbing vines, rose gardens, a chef’s garden and a collection of sun-drenched California native greenery greet you at JUSTIN’s legendary garden grounds. Book a reserved tasting for an intimate experience or simply unwind with a glass in hand and watch the sun melt behind rural hills.

Enjoy: The Old World meets the “new” with JUSTIN’s 2017 Justification, a robust blend of cabernet franc and merlot. The best of both worlds? We could get used to this!

Explore: Reservations are required at this time. Same day reservations and walk-in reservations may be taken as availability allows. Book your JUSTIN experience by calling 805-238-6932 or by emailing concierge@justinwine.com.

Rose colored glasses at Chateau Margene

A rose is a rose is a rose: With comfortable couches, overstuffed lounge chairs and grassy knolls to spare, you’ll feel the urge to linger for hours at Chateau Margene (and you’re free to do so). Fragrant roses add a special aromatherapy to this scenic landscape, home to verdant vineyards and chirping birds. What’s next on the to-do list? Relax under the branches of a friendly oak tree and enjoy the quiet of this calm, outdoor oasis.

Enjoy: Refined red cherry fruit, cedar and mesmerizing savory notes make the winery’s 2019 Pinot Noir – Sta. Rita Hills the perfect sipper for an afternoon of sun-dappled pleasures.

Made in the shade: Ample umbrellas, a bubbling fountain and gourmet nibbles just might trick your brain into thinking you’ve just arrived at a Tuscan villa. We say, go with that fantasy.

It’s time to bask in the glory of your best staycation yet at Villa San Juliette!

Explore: Appointments required at this time. Make your appointment Thursday through Monday from 11am to 5 p.m. (six people per group). Book your appointment online here.

Where’s the beef? Inside these 5 Paso Wine and Beef Pairings!

Old Hollywood movies and complicated dance numbers, shoulder pads and big, frizzy perms, homemade sourdough bread and Instagram double taps: the trends are always changing. No matter how weird the future gets, some pairings will remain rock steady. For instance? Paso Robles wine and a great cut of beef. Ever wonder why a thick slab of meat and a glass of red work so beautifully together? It’s not just a matter of preference—it’s a matter of science! The tannins in that glass of cab actually work to soften the fat in your steak to release more flavor goodness (sorry to make you drool already). But wait, there’s more! The delicious fat in your steak also helps to mellow the wine’s astringency, releasing more of the vino’s inherent fruitiness. Mmmm…! Wondering which wine is best to pair with your next ribeye, T-bone or filet mignon? Any Paso Robles red will do, but here are a few faves we’re more than mooing over:

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon and Syrah from Michael Gill Cellars

Wrap it up, I’ll take it: Dark, smokey syrah is a no-brainer when paired with juicy, slightly charred bacon-wrapped filet mignon. Michael Gill Cellars is ground zero for all things syrah, so you can pick up a few bottles and compare them all? These luscious offerings—and gold medal winners—are a sophisticated homage to Paso’s rocky, calcareous soil and hilly, sunny slopes. From vineyard to vineyard and vintage to vintage, you’ll pick up on nifty nuances that bring out the bold beefiness on your plate! Meaty morsel: Remember, a fattier choice of meat can stand up against syrah’s hefty tannins and structured mouthfeel. Go big or go hungry, right?

Tri-tip and a Rhone Red from Brecon Estate

A world of flavor: Not every meaty meal has to knock you on the head with its intense, Flintstones flavor profile. A lighter bodied and more acidic red—like one of Brecon Estates’ beautiful grenache or red Rhône blend offerings—will pick up the bountiful, herbaceous seasonings famously rubbed into this classic Central Coast cut. When paired with perfectly cooked tri-tip (oak-grilled on the outside and blushing pink in the middle) the entire experience is Paso Robles perfection. Meaty morsel: Did you know that the rarer your steak, the more mellow your wine will taste? Good to know when choosing between “medium rare” and “all moo.”

Burger and Cabernet Sauvignon from Rangeland

Back to basics: Ground beef need not be reserved for the kid’s table! A truly gourmet burger can do wonders for your morale (especially if you’ve been eating salads all week). Plus, they’re a cinch to whip up at home on any old night. Order up a box of estate raised Angus ground beef and a case of bold red wine from Rangeland Wines today. Fire up the grill and get acquainted with Rangeland’s fruit forward and velvety cabernet sauvignon, a pairing made in weeknight heaven! Meaty morsel: Be sure to pop the wine at least 30 minutes before digging in. This  allows the cab’s robust flavors to truly open up in the glass. Wouldn’t want to waste a single sip!

For mapping and directions to Rangeland, click here.

Beef Ribs and Zinfandel from Dover Canyon

Repeat after me: “barbecue and zinfandel are best friends!” What might seem like an odd pairing is, in reality, a love affair to stand the test of time. Jammy, spicy zinfandel (like the kind you’ll find at Dover Canyon Winery) has a way of taking saucy beef ribs from “good’ to “grand.” Flavors of bright cherry and black pepper perfectly mimic the savory-sweetness of those tangy, finger-lickin’ ribs! Meaty morsel: Make your own barbecue sauce and add a glug of your favorite zinfandel before reducing the liquid down to a glossy finish. You can thank us later!

Mourvèdre from Cass and Dry Aged Steak

Wisdom of the ages: If you don’t think your go-to steakhouse order can be improved, try a dry-aged cut. Why? Dry aging imparts additional flavor and a totally tender texture you have to taste to believe! Naturally present enzymes in the meat break down some of the collagen (the stuff that usually holds muscle fibers together and causes meat to toughen cooking). A steak this exquisite can only be paired with a wine made to linger. Enter mourvèdre, known for its rich flavor and spicy, savory profile (Cass Winery knows a thing or two about perfecting this lesser-known varietal). Polished tannins and a round mouthfeel dance with every marvelous melt-in-your-mouth bite. What could be better? Meaty morsel: Want to “cut it with a butter knife?” With less collagen in a dry aged cut, the end result is, well, like butter!

Sip at home with these 5 Paso Wines

 

Stay put and sip on! We’re all spending a lot of extra time at home these days, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip out on the joy of happy hour. Your abode might be a far cry from a swanky wine tasting room in the décor department, but with a bit of mood lighting (hello, fall scented candles) and a well-curated charcuterie plate, your living room can double as a perfectly acceptable date night hangout.

The main ingredient, of course, is Paso Robles wine! Whether you prefer merlot and a movie. Sangiovese and a sitcom, or just a glass of Viognier and a very hot bath, now is the time to wrap your senses in a proverbial Snuggie of good taste. Because the finer things aren’t just for world travelers. Tonight, couch potatoes rule.

1. Bodega de Edgar and a good book

Reading rainbow: Swing by the Bodega de Edgar tasting room (or point and click over to the winery’s website) and grab a beautiful bottle to pair with your read pile (that stack of books on your bedside table is only growing larger). The winery’s brand new 2019 Albariño is the perfect companion as you turn the page and sink into a story. Notes of lemon blossom, honey, pineapple and tropical aromas initially greet your nose, a riveting first chapter. In the mouth, the wine mimics those same juicy aromas, creating a compelling balance of acid and refreshment. The plot thickens!

Bookmark it: Bodega de Edgar is offering a $240 case special on La Guera Chardonnay or Out of Paso Cabernet Sauvignon now (includes shipping).

2. Hope Family Wines and an action flick

Go where the action is. Hope Family Wine’s 2017 Syrah isn’t afraid to go big! Estate grown in the Templeton Gap region of Paso Robles, this blockbuster red was born from four syrah clones of varying personalities (all of them extroverted). Pair with a fast-paced action movie and feel the outside world melt away. The rich berry flavor offers up explosion after explosion to rock your palate. Just remember: with great intensity comes great responsibility.

Two thumbs up: Order any three bottles or more from Hope Family Wines and receive ground shipping for a penny!

3. Allegretto Wines and a snack attack

“Punchy pinot seeks fun-loving snack for a scrumptious Saturday night.” If this sounds like you, pop open Allegretto Wine’s 2019 Pinot Noir, a fabulously food friendly bottle with charm to spare. Vibrantly fruity with expressive cherry tones and a touch of herbaceous allure, you’ll come for the silky texture and stay for the finish (flush with sage and allspice, we might add). Pair with herb-crusted lamb (or just a box of cheese-topped rosemary crackers) for a finger-licking experience. P.S. Allegretto Wines is offering curbside pickup for an easy grab-and-go selection.

Pampered chef: Looking for a quick way to turn any charcuterie plate into a masterpiece worthy of a foodie magazine? A drizzle of extra virgin Pasolivo Olive Oil always does the trick. You’ve got to try their rosemary flavor with this wine combination!

4. Sextant Wines and a bath

The water’s fine: Whether you luxuriate with essential oils, Epsom salts or a fizzy bath bomb, Sextant Wines is here to make sure you truly relax (you can unclench your jaw now). Bold yet distinctly elegant, the 2018 Sextant Night Watch is an intricate and seamless composition crafted for elevated levels of self care. Sink into the deep crimson wine and breathe in the sandalwood, white pepper, and lavender nose. Don’t you wish you could bathe in this stuff?

You deserve it: Curbside pickup makes procuring your favorite Sextant wines as easy as turning on the faucet.

5. Dubost Ranch Winery and a craft

Get crafty: Now is a logical time to pick up all those old arts and crafts projects you were going to “get around to” back in 2019. Feels like a lifetime ago, right? Whether woodworking, crocheting or just doing your best to color within the lines of that adult coloring book you got last holiday, we suggest pairing your focused activity with an equally handcrafted wine. Dubost Ranch Winery’s 2018 Chenin Blanc is awash in minerality, with perky notes of peach and honey. Yes, it’s just the thing to lift your spirits when your DIY project goes haywire. Nailed it!

Bonus: Enjoy wood fired pizza handmade by Kate Dubost or a beautiful cheese plate to pair with your wine.

5 Outdoor Paso Tasting Rooms to Check out this Harvest Season

This fall, watch the vines become wines in beautiful Paso Robles. The grapes are ripe, the vineyards are bustling and the wine? Well, it’s in that magical, mystical stage of transformation known as “harvest.” Witness the colors of the vineyard change from green to gold as you relax at these outdoor tasting rooms designed for maximum comfort and safety. Friendly winery staff await your arrival with bottles to spare! Let’s cheers to a new vintage together. Here’s to a happening harvest!

1. Sip like a VIP at Jada Vineyard & Winery

Sure, you can book a virtual tasting appointment with Jada via Zoom, but this time of year, you’ve just just got to see the Westside property to believe it. Lounge on a covered, outdoor deck overlooking the 48-acre, sustainably vineyard while you sample six current releases paired with gourmet cheeses. Yum! No need to get out of your chair: Jada’s wines will appear at your table just when you’re reaching for the next sip. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more “VIP tasting experiences” coming soon (like barrel samples chosen to fit your unique preferences and more). Yes, this is just the kind of excellence we’ve come to expect from Jada, a winery that continually crafts premium, all-estate, limited-production Rhone and Bordeaux-style wines that wow. Take it from Josh Reynolds, Editor and Wine Critic, VINOUS “Producers such as…Jada have significantly stepped up [its] game and must now be counted among the Central Coast’s best wineries . . . which is excellent news for everybody, especially consumers.”

Details: Six guest maximum per reservation. Reservations can be made online up to four in advance.  For last-minute reservations, call the 805-226-4200. Hours are 11am to 4:45pm daily.

2. Downtown vibes at JUSTIN

They say JUSTIN wines are exceptional from every angle, and we tend to agree. Try a sip of their famous Isosceles Reserve for yourself and you’ll soon understand why the regal blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot has captured the hearts of wine critics (and regular wine lovers like us) the world over. The winery’s virtual tastings lead by certified wine sommelier Jim Gerakaris are fantastic, but their downtown tasting room offers up all the excitement of harvest without the need to drive down a bumpy country road. Yes, the buzz of the harvest season is alive in downtown Paso Robles, where winemakers rub elbows with farmers, chefs, and travelers. Savor bold reds and crisp whites by the glass or bottle paired with exceptional food and know that you’re truly in the center of it all.

Details: Reservations are required and can be made on OpenTable via the winery website or by calling the tasting room at 805-591-3225. Group size limited to six maximum. Hours are 9:30am to 5pm daily. Reservations required. Last reservation at  reservation 4:30pm

Storm Paso Roble’s oft-Instagrammed castle and plunder the robust riches of the season. At Tooth and Nail, you never have to choose between varietals because, well, they have them all and we’re certain you’ll find a handful that you can’t live without! Reserve our spot now and sample reds, whites, blends and single varietals grown across Paso Robles and the Central Coast all on the tasting room’s sun dappled veranda.

Harvest is a ton of hard work, but the blood, sweat and tears are always worth it at Rotta. Known as the oldest family-owned winery in San Luis Obispo County, you’ll get a true taste of Paso Robles winemaking history with every swirl of your glass.
