5 Paso Wine Experiences for Couples

Long ago, you said I “do’ (or maybe just “I’ll move in”). Whatever your arrangement with your better half, one thing’s certain: Quarantine has not helped the romance factor. Working from home, schooling from home and, yes, “date night-ing” from home has taken a toll on even the spiciest couples. What can we do? We say it’s time get outside in the sun, enjoy some world class wine, and simply let your love breathe! Dinner and movie might still be a ways out, but you can get the spark back with these awesome Paso Robles Wine Country experiences. Whether under the stars or the big blue sky, we can promise you one thing: You’re sure to see your sweetie smile.

Find your love nest

Removed, but not too far: Need some quality time to reconnect with your love life? Book one of Paso’s gorgeous and intimate vacation rentals, where you’ll have the whole place to your yourselves. Here, windows open up to vibrant vineyards and you’re never far from a stellar sip. The Guest House at Copia Vineyards is perfectly situated (just 1.5 miles from downtown Paso, yet surrounded by 20 acres of lush, grape-studded greenery and breathtaking views). Nestled within the heart of the Willow Creek District, this modern, open-concept cottage offers up a relaxing retreat not far from dining, boutique shopping and wineries. Of course, you receive a complimentary bottle of their gorgeous, premium wine when you stay and you can purchase more wine from owners, Anita or Varinder, who are just a short stroll away from your new front door. You’ll also receive a personal tour of their 20 acre estate vineyard carpeting the surrounding hills and a fab complimentary wine tasting experience. Yes, it’s the best of both worlds! Stay in or get some sun…either way, joy is on the agenda.

We recommend an assortment of chocolates, cheeses, local bread, and a big, soft blanket perfect for lounging and looking up at the sky. Have a “third wheel” with a wagging tail in tow? No worries!

5 Tips to Planning a Spring fling in Paso Robles Wine Country

Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Well, spring officially springs into action Saturday, March 20! (And word has it that Paso might be opening next week for 25% capacity indoor tasting and dining!) Time to plan your trip to scenic Paso Robles Wine Country, where the wildflowers are blooming and the perfect beach day beckons just beyond rolling green hills. If you’ve been dreaming of visiting Paso Robles this year, now is the perfect time to dive in and explore our hundreds of unique varietals. Go on, get out there: Stay, play, and savor world class wines when you book a visit to one of our hundreds of dreamy outdoor tasting rooms. Ready to soak up the sun? Here’s our best tips to squeezing every last drop out of your next spring fling.

Picnic? Our pleasure

Spread out that picnic blanket and get cozy among the wildflowers: With miles of undulating hillsides awash in every shade of emerald green, Paso Robles Wine Country may be the best place to picnic this spring (plus—ahem—there’s amazing wine to be paired with all those fine cheeses and meats). Grab an easy-to-sip screw top bottle of something bright and light, then hit the trail. We suggest Eberle’s 2019 Viognier, Mill Road, a rush of orange blossom and honeysuckle in your glass. Now you’re free to prance among the posies, twirl among the tulips…really, you do you!

BONUS! Scored 90 PTS from Vinous.

Beach day

Head for the coast: Did you know that Paso Robles Wine Country is located only a few miles drive from gorgeous Highway 1 and the Pacific coast? Take scenic route Highway 46 West through some of Paso’s most gorgeous terrain and you’ll get into that optimistic springtime state of mind in a jiff. We promise: there will be no traffic, but keep your eyes peeled for perhaps a few baby deer! Along the way, be sure to stop at a host of wineries offering everything from small plates on the patio to full-on vineyard tours. Reserve a tasting and tour at Tooth and Nail Winery’s iconic castle tasting room/eatery and embark on a guided romp through the majestic grounds. Cap off your adventure with a coastal sunset and a stroll along the sand. They say chivalry is dead, but (at least in Paso Robles) romance is alive and kicking.

Sit down and stay a while

Around here, time moves slower: Enjoy the languid pace of life and grab an outdoor lounge chair at Parrish Family Vineyard, where you’re encouraged to linger as long as you like. Surrounded by gorgeous green vines (and views), this family owned and operated tasting room is all about casual relaxation paired with sophisticated wines and bites. Claim your spot in the sun and sample the winery’s beloved cabernet sauvignon (the best part? They’ll bring you fabulous food, too). That’s right: nibble on fig and green olive tapenade, a seasonal flatbread creation of even a BLTA with roasted garlic aioli, almond-praline bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato all on sliced house made cabernet sourdough (THE BEST!). Yep, you have officially arrived. Welcome to the good life, my friend.

Grab a gazebo

Greet the fresh air, buzzing bees and happy birds: When you kick back on Peachy Canyon’s picturesque lawn, you’re basically stepping into an old timey postcard of yore. We jest, but seriously—imagine relaxing under a gazebo outside the winery’s historic “Old Bethel School House” built in 1886. Even the epic zinfandel in your hand seems to recall a simpler era: After all, Zinfandel is Paso’s heritage grape, and no one makes it quite like Peachy Canyon. Yes, it’s pretty easy to imagine you’ve slipped back to a time when small joys were celebrated after a long day tilling the fields. Luckily for you, the butter’s been churned and all the chores have been done. Nothing left to be done but sip.

Peace in harmony

Peace! It’s not just for the hippies: a sense of wellbeing can, indeed, be yours when you visit the tiny hamlet of Harmony, CA located along the coast between Highway 1 and Paso Robles. With a tiny chapel and post office, this roadside stop is made even more charming by incredible local wine. Harmony Cellars overlooks the whole storybook scene and you can take in the view with an outdoor tasting that’s anything but diminutive. A tip from us? Don’t blink, or you could miss the turn-off (the town famously boasts just 18 residents). Yes, that’s the total population, even if you count the cows.

5 Paso Reds to Pair with Backyard BBQ

It’s going to be lit! Slap on that Kiss the Cook apron and grab your longest pair of tongs—grilling season is just around the corner! Time to lug your trusty barbecue into the sun, dust off that big bag of charcoal and get a spark going. When it comes to grilling the Paso Robles way, don’t forget the most important ingredient: A fruity, drinkable red wine that wows. You thought we were going to say “barbecue sauce,” didn’t you? Well, that would be number two on the list, just before “ripe watermelon.” Ready to get grilling? Grab these 5 reds first. Now we’re cooking with fire!

Wines of the West – Alloy Antipasto Sangiovese in a Can

Grab a six-pack: This luxurious sangiovese courtesy of the folks at Alloy may taste super fancy, but the laid back aluminum can format is 100% “casual Friday.” Crack open one of these bold bad boys and take a sip between bites of your tomato-and-bacon-laden burger. The wine cries out for rich sauces and meaty morsels (especially when a little char is involved). Maybe you should give it what it wants? Sure seems like this sangiovese means business! Want to try the wine first? Check out Wines of the West’s virtual tasting offerings and bring this red to a patio near you.

Dubost Wine – 2017 Auguste GSM

The power of three: Something truly special happens when you mix juicy sausages, spicy peppers and caramelized onions all on the grill—it’s like the trio are so much better together than they ever were apart. But what about Paso’s classic GSM blend? When grenache, syrah and mourvedre co-mingle, true magic happens in the glass! Grab Dubost Wine’s approachable GSM—aged for 18 months in 50% new oak—and behold the unifying yumminess of each satisfying slurp. Uncork now or let it ride till 2035 (seriously, we’re not making this up). Do you think we’ll still be grilling then? Considering it’s the original way of enjoying any piece of food, we have to think so…

Buy it now, click here

For mapping and directions to Dubost, click here

Oso Libre – 2016 Reserva Bordeaux Blend Reserva

Meaty and mighty and altogether marvelous: A winery that can supply the perfect red blend plus a fantastic cut of red meat for the grill? That’s right, friends! If “beef” happens to be your particular love language, you’re in luck! Oso Libre’s robust Bordeaux-style blend is perfect when paired alongside the winery’s estate raised Angus beef. Really, it’s quite romantic how well they play together. Comprised of 79% cabernet Sauvignon and 21% merlot, get ready for layers of plush fruit flavor that roll into a finger-licking (and ultra-lingering) finish. Truly, could any match be easier? Cupid can take the day off.

Donati Family Vineyards – 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Consider yourself a serious eater? Are you the type to tie on a bib and really go for it (even if everyone else is primly nibbling on a garden burger)? Well, let’s just say a full rack of baby back ribs are no match for Donati Family Vineyard’s cabernet Sauvignon that was awarded an esteemed 90 points from Wine Enthusiast. Mischievous in personality, this wine easily conjures up aromas of brambleberry, dark cherry, vanilla bean, and toffee crunch. The palate is intense with tight tannins, flavors of raspberry, fresh blackberry, black pepper, and cedar box. Long and lasting finish, with hints of mocha leather hide, and raspberry puree offers up a delightful contrast to any barbecue sauce-laden entree. With lively acid throughout and creamy tannins that turn to velvet, this wine isn’t just a show-stopper. It’s a meal topper!

Chateau Margene – Roxo Port 2014 Barbera

Dig in and indulge: We say skip dessert and go straight for this sweet talking charmer. You can thank the folks at Chateau Margene for carrying this outstanding port style red (and before you argue with us on whether it could or should pair with barbecue, just hold your horses). Aged in French oak for six long years, this distinguished-yet-approachable wine is not cloying or “one note.” In fact, it’s totally the life of the party! Complex layers of juicy flavor call out for pulled pork sandwiches topped with sharp red onion. Sure, you’re skeptical. But once you try it, you’ll be converted.

That’s So Paso: 5 Reasons Paso Wine Country is Different


Photo credit: Central Coast Trail Rides at Cass Winery

Wildlife and wine barrels, cabernet sauvignon and cowboy boots—that’s so Paso! The rumors really are true: Paso Robles Wine Country is unlike any other wine region in the world. Sure, we’re known for bold, world class wines, but that’s only the half the story. Around here, friendliness is a fact of life and everyone feels welcome to rejoice and kick their feet up. From our charming downtown square to winding backroads flanked by vines, a particularly “Paso” feeling permeates this sunny, happy place. The best part? Our hundreds of unique tasting rooms are open for business with a range of outdoor seating options. Truly, there’s no place like Paso! Find out why right here:

We’re still cowboys (and cowgirls) at heart

Sure, our wines have garnered more gold medals than you can shake a wine thief at. But that doesn’t mean we’re too fancy to rope and ride! Paso Robles has enjoyed a long history as a horse-and-wine town with many winemakers (and wine drinkers) enjoying the laid back equestrian lifestyle. Case in point: Hayseed and Housdon’s 2018 grenache, an homage to this blending of words. The wine, dubbed Rhône Rodeo, defies perception (just as our local winemaking cow-folk do every day). Who knew, for instance, that one of the largest rodeos in the world takes place each year in Saint-Agrève – only a half an hour horse ride from the Rhône wine region of France? Enjoy this dry grenache featuring waves of punchy cherry and plum the way the local riders do: in the saddle, on the trail or in the ring! And feel good as you sip knowing that Hayseed and Housdon donates 50% of its profits to non-profit local organizations.

Buy it now, click here

We know how to eat

While some wine folks speckle your plate with hard-to-pronounce nibbles, Paso is proud to have a big appetite (and an even bigger flavor profile). You could call us “foodies,” but really, that doesn’t quite do us justice! When you come to our table, you better come hungry. Our tasting rooms don’t just offer cheese plates and a handful of dry crackers, oh no. You’re in for a full meal! At Cass Winery, you can chow down one of three made-to-order gourmet burgers, a killer BLT and even seasonal soups crafted with the freshest local ingredients. How fresh? Well, let’s just say your beef was estate raised and you can thank our temperate, all-year growing season for that juicy just-picked produce.

We stay in style

Sure, Paso Robles is home to rural farmland and cute bed and breakfasts that harken back to simpler times. But did you know we also offer up luxurious accommodations rivaling some of the best resorts anywhere?

We have a sense of humor

Yes, we love to laugh (especially at ourselves)! With funny labels and serious wines, Chronic Cellars exemplifies Paso’s laid back vibe and cheerful spirit. Founded by a pair of fun-loving surfer/winemaker brothers, each bottle boasts its own bold and irreverent attitude. From the Day of the Dead inspired artwork on the labels to the breezy lawn-games that unfold at the winery’s chill outdoor tasting area, these are wines you don’t have to think too hard about to enjoy.  I mean, anyone who names their popular red Rhone blend “Sofa King Bueno” deserves a round of applause, right?

We’re stewards of the land

When you think of red-blooded ranchers, you probably don’t think “biodynamic farming,” but the hardworking family behind Rangeland Winery truly showcase Paso’s commitment to the land. Around here, it’s all about a natural approach! This goes for the family’s carefully rotated grass fed beef operation as well as its precious vines. With 40 acres planted of wine grapes and 1,500 acres of wild oak woodland, Mother Nature is allowed to take its course (a rich habitat of native plants and animals call this region home). About 200 sheep graze the vineyard when dormant, adding natural fertilizer to the land and eliminating mechanical mowing or herbicides. It’s all in a day’s work in Paso.

5 Whites to Cleanse Your Palate in 2021

 

Lighten up! Luxurious  reds and velvety textures will always have their sensual allure, but as spring approaches in sunny Paso Robles, bright, beautiful wines are taking center stage. (Yes, we are seeing tender green grass blades sprouting up as we speak!) Savor a fresh start with Paso Robles Wine Country’s world class whites, which range from creamy and charismatic to clean, crisp and oh-so-cheeky. From a juicy rosé perfect for sipping by the pool to surprisingly sophisticated screw-top selections sure to elevate your next picnic, it’s time to see the light. Ready for your own Paso Robles wine palate cleanser? You’ve come to the right place.

Hoyt Family Wines 2017 Chardonnay

Paso’s best and brightest: The winery’s newest release is also the most drinkable. An overachiever? Oh yeah! Crisp, with hints of oak and butter, this crowd-pleasing Hoyt Family chardonnay is both sumptuous and acidic. Yep, it’s a Paso Robles classic and one that really put this family owned and operated winery on the map. Want to try before you buy? Grab the winery’s exciting new Tasting in a Box, available from their webside. You’ll enjoy five varietals (including that awesome chardonnay). Pair the box with a virtual education option or just toast with friends and family over zoom. It’s a charmed life and a charmed chardonnay, that’s for sure.

Monochrome 2018 Sense of Out of Place Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay blend

Are white wines your thing, your only thing? Meet your next new bestie, Monochrome, who focuses exclusively on white wines, the only winery in Paso Robles to do so.  Some people think of white wines as simple, one-dimensional, or a lesser sibling to red wines.  We disagree, and they aim to create complex, interesting and layered white wines by applying the same level of effort, creativity and passion that most wineries reserve for their very best red wines. Their goal is to stand against the “white wines are simple” mindset, and champion the fact that there is nothing simple about crafting (or enjoying) elegant, and memorable white wines. Intrigued? Order your five Monochrome wines’ virtual tasting kit, each of which has scored 90+ points from the critics!

You’ll also definitely want to purchase their 2018 Sense of Out of Place, that garnered 93 Pts from Jeb Dunnuck and 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast and from Forbes was named one of the top 10 wines for your holiday, every holiday, table! “Clean and grassy aromas meet with rainy cement and a hint of peach blossom on the nose of this blend of 53% Sauvignon Blanc from McGinley Vineyard and 47% Chardonnay from Donnachadh Vineyard. There is a great sizzle to the sip, which is crisp with dried apple and bright Meyer lemon flavors and wrapped in chalky tannins.” Matt Kettmann

Tooth and Nail 2019 Rabble Rosé

All rise for ready-to-drink rosé! Like the first hint of fragrant spring blooms, the right rosé has a way of mesmerizing the senses and kick-starting the heart. Tooth and Nail’s 2019 Rabble Rose is no exception (plus, the screw top makes it effortlessly enjoyable anywhere, anytime). You’re sure to fall head over heels for this wine’s deliciously dry flavor, bright citrusy aromas and a flirty, punchy palate. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, all you’ll taste is pure, passionate fruit expression. Yep, it’s a spring sunset in a bottle!

Villa San Juliette 2018 Estate Sauvignon Blanc

A lasting impression: When Wine Enthusiast awards a wine 93 points and celebrated wine critic Matt Kettmann gives the wine two thumbs up, you know you’re in for something special. How special? Think: “clean lines of green pear, green plum, white flower and crushed chalk.” Immediately appealing on the palate, this wine from Villa San Juliette has a way of charming even the most knowledgable wine enthusiast with exotic waves of key lime and guava goodness. What’s not to love?

Hayseed and Housdon 2019 Steel Reins Edna Valley Chardonnay

Have you ended a long-term relationship with chardonnay because you got tired of the same old oaky song and dance? Well, Hayseed and Housdon’s 2019 Steel Reins Chardonnay is sure to make you a true believer once again. Dry, crisp and clean, the this stainless steel fermented, Chablis-style chardonnay offers up notes of white peach and green apple with a hint of honey, just for kicks. Plus profits generated through the sale of our 2019 Steel Reins Chardonnay are split 50/50 with RISE, an SLO County based organization that provides crisis intervention to survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence. Yes, this truly is one chardonnay you can feel good (really, really good) about.

5 Ways to Instagram your Paso Robles Wine like a Pro

YES, PASO ROBLES WINE COUNTRY IS OPEN! Get out of dodge and get ready to capture special Instagram moments in wine country.

Heck, while you’re at it, notch it up. There’s no shame in admitting it—we all do a little something extra for the ‘gram now and then! From a well-curated cheese-and-wine pairing that looks just as good as it tastes to impromptu photo ops among sunset-streaked vineyards, Paso Robles Wine Country is about as photogenic as a basket full of puppies posed under a rainbow. Whether you’re into sharing underground blends that ooze a certain edgy vibe or just love showcasing the gorgeous hue of that merlot in your glass, learn to snap your next fine wine find like a total #pro. Just follow these 5 tips!

Natural light gets it right

One rule to rule them all? After pouring your glass, head for the nearest window (or go completely outdoors) to snap the perfect pic of your wine’s natural hue. Whether inky black, purple-tinged or flushed pink, the sun’s rays will allow your subject to glow from within! Lussa Della Terra’s 2019 rose of pinot noir is a lovely salmon color that glows peachy-orange in the Paso Robles sun. Get this bodacious bottle when you purchase Lussa Della Terra’s Top 3 Trio Special that also includes the winery’s popular 2018 reserve viognier and 2018 pinot noir Adelaida District. No filter required for this party! BONUS: it’s a deal, grab this trio for only $75. A Deal, Discounted from Retail $92.

Tell a story

We don’t mean any old fairytale book. Think of the wine as the main character and it’s your job to weave a believable backstory. Not sure how to create a visual story for the wine you’re savoring? Say you’re drinking one of Michael Gill Cellars famed westside award winning syrahs: luxurious, sultry and just a tad earthy. A table strewn with herbs and adorned with beautiful stone wear just makes sense. Get creative with whatever you’ve got in your kitchen! A few mis-matched china teacups, a crusty baguette cut into thick slices and a few flowers from your garden can turn a photo from pedestrian to downright Parisian in a snap. Ooh la la…this would also make a romantic Instagram story, don’t you think?

Buy it now, click here

Mapping and directions to Michael Gill Cellars, click here

Love that label

Some wine labels are simply pretty to look at. And others? Well, they’re emblazoned with works of art so grand that would make any art-collecting hipster do a double take! Why not show the world how cool/quirky/unique your tastebuds are with a little luxury label action? With bold bottles splashed with neon anarchy signs and eye-popping underground artwork, Paso’s celebrated Anarchy Wine Co. intends to turn heads and garner expressions of shock and awe. Allow the winery’s 2017 “Superfly” unconventional zinfandel blend take you on a psychedelic trip that’s as tasty to sip as it is groovy to marvel at. We’ll double tap to that!

Take it for a spin

You might think your days vacationing among the vineyards are over. Thankfully, plenty of Paso Robles wineries offer scenic outdoor tastings and breezy, socially distant ways to savor the wine and terroir of this very special landscape safely. At Écluse Wines, you can enjoy a glass of the winery’s famous 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon while basking in all the distinct beauty of their estate vineyard In fact, The Terrace at Écluse is nestled just off the crush pad and overlooks endlessly lush vines. Yep. You’re ready for your closeup!

In fact, we encourage you to tag @PasoRoblesWineries in your selfie for a chance to be featured on wineries’ feeds! Our hardworking winemakers craft unique bottles vintage after vintage with the hope that they will one day be enjoyed, shared—and yes—even selfied by you.

You’ll make a winemaker smile and garner Paso Wine Country a brand new fan all in a single flash. #workit.

5 Paso Wine Trends to Watch for in 2021

New year, new wine trends! Sure, the classics are great: who doesn’t adore an Audrey Hepburn movie or a creamy Chardonnay from time to time? Still, the world turns, tastes evolve (and, as you’ll read shortly, it’s certainly not a bad thing). In Paso Robles Wine Country, we’re always honoring the Old World while embracing the new. As we stake a bold step into 2021, let’s raise a glass to all the trend setters and pioneers pushing the envelope.

Virtual tastings

Click your way to your next sip: You can thank the craziness that was 2020 for this couch-lover’s trend! Not surprisingly, we’re still seeing an increasing surge in the realm of virtual tastings, especially in Paso Robles, where winemakers aren’t too stuffy to try a new way of doing things. The folks here are friendly and knowledgeable, always seeking to provide an educational experience with a twist of casual fun. It’s no wonder, then, that Paso Robles wine tasting rooms quickly adjusted to serving you from the comfort of your living room! This tasting is about unfussy as you can get.

The future is now: It’s easy to enjoy a fabulous wine tasting flight at home when you pick up Tooth and Nail’s Once in a Lifetime Bundle. This winemaker selection features small-lot bottlings of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Grenache, representing the finest expressions of Tooth & Nail’s Murmur Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. The result is a trio of coveted wines that are tailor-made for special meals and moments.

Outdoor tastings

Want to visit Paso Robles but still waiting on tasting rooms to re-open their doors? Contact us for the latest updates by calling Lauren at 805 226-5555. Let us help you, we might just have good news for you to make your visit to Paso Robles Wine Country quite heavenly, yes even during these trying times!

In the meantime know that Paso Robles Wine Country has been blessed with what some would call the “perfect” climate, and winemakers here have been hosting world class outdoor tastings for decades. In fact, many liken our mild, long growing season with that of southern France. That does make us feel fancy, but in reality we’re just a bunch of outdoor enthusiasts waiting for the next great sunset. You can bask in our bountiful sunshine too when you book an outdoor tasting at one of Paso Robles’ gorgeous outdoor tasting areas that we will inform you when they are open. From flower-dotted gardens 360-degree vineyard views, you’ll be feeling fine in the fresh air!

Sunshine day: Consider a luxurious-yet-socially-distant outdoor tasting at Jada winery that many have commented feels like you have ascended into a large tree house overlooking the vineyards and bucolic countryside. When they are open you will enjoy a wine and cheese pairing on the breezy, sun-dappled deck overlooking lush vineyards, the perfect way to experience Paso Robles’ famed westside beauty. Yes, you can even bring your pup.

Food friendly experiences

A match made in heaven: In Paso Robles, we’re all about enjoying food and wine together—as it always should be! (Extra points, through in some true Paso Robles cowboy vibes) While some tasting rooms may offer you a bowl of try crackers, our foodie winemakers are dead set on filling your belly with gourmet goodies that bring each wine to life. With curbside bottle and meal pick-ups galore, you’re never far from your next perfect pairing, especially when saddles are involved.

Gulp, giddy-up and grill: At Iron Oaks Winery, you can easily pick up a case of boldly crafted wines and locally raised DD Cattle Co beat perfect for grilling and chilling on your own time (owned by owner and winemaker, cowboy Doug’s, family). This laid back, true-to-Paso flavor combo was made to be savored. Dare we say it’s finger licking good?

Wine Club Memberships

These are not your mother’s clubs: Maybe you’ve considered joining a wine club before, only to stop yourself before signing. Perhaps the terms were too rigid, the offerings and perks too few—plus, would you even be home to enjoy the bottles when they arrived? In Paso Robles, wine clubs are all about customization and ease of use (you can often even go online to pick your preferred mix of bottles in each shipment). With less folks traveling and more delivery options than ever, it makes sense that wine lovers are signing up for these well-curated clubs in droves.

Join the family: The Seven Oxen Estate Wines Wine Club is free to join and an awesome value. Get this: Club members enjoy priority access to new release and limited production wines, invitations to special member-only events, complimentary wine tasting, and a discount on all purchases.

Unique varietals

Sure, it might seems like wineries are trying to out do each other with exotic and hard to pronounce varietals, but there is a reason for this influx of unique, far-flung wines. Paso Robles Wine Country is known for incredible terroir and incomparable growing conditions, so why not grow something a little different? I mean, “Rosé  all day” was so 2019!

Expand your tastebuds: Did you know that Lone Madrone has been blending unique varietals sourced from across Paso Robles Wine Country for years? Time to take your curiosity for a spin and pick up a few new friends. We recommend the winery’s 2019 La Mezcla Roja, a blend consisting mostly of cinsault and counoise (with a dash of mourvedre and grenache thrown in for good measure). You can pickup your wine at the winery (with your pup in tow) or order online!

4 Things You Didn’t Know about Paso Wine Country

So you fancy yourself a wine buff? We don’t doubt that. If you’re a lover of fine wine—especially the fresh, exciting New World styles that garner so much buzz in sunny California—you’ve no doubt already caught wind of the world class, award-winning wines  that have been coming out of Paso Robles over the past few decades. Heard good things but not too sure why we’re such hot stuff? No worries! Allow us to let you in on the not-so-secret joys of Paso Robles Wine Country. Hey, we all have our blind spots!

We’re humble yet mighty

Sure, we pride ourselves on our down-home vibe and warm, country hospitality, but that doesn’t mean we’re a blip on the map. Paso Robles Wine Country is home to more than 11 viticultural regions (amounting to about 614,000 acres of vineyards) and approximately 250 wineries crafting hundreds of varietals, including hard-to-find and unique offerings. From mom and pop tasting rooms where you can meet the winemaker to opulent outdoor verandas surrounded by breathtaking vineyard views, we truly are a wine lover’s paradise.

Join the club: With world-renowned craftsmanship and a sophisticated offerings, JUSTIN represents Paso Robles Winery’s polished (yet still approachable) personality. Since planting their first vineyards in 1981 with the aim to create world-class Bordeaux-style blends, JUSTIN has wowed critics, dazzled fans and elevated the region to new heights. Order  JUSTIN wine online and experience the quality and care poured into each precious vintage. Shop Paso’s finest, click here to go to JUSTIN’s online store

We’re more than sunshine

When you think about Paso Robles Wine Country, located on the California coast between L.A. to the south and San Francisco to the north, you probably think of one thing: bountiful sunshine. Yes, we have an extremely temperate, year long growing season that allows our grapes to ripen to stellar results. However, from day to day and morning to night, temperature can swing wildly. With a greater day-to-night temperature swing than any other appellation in the sunshine state—coupled with countless unique microclimates and dynamic soil types—Paso Robles wines can vary dramatically from vineyard to vineyard. That means more than just one flavor in your glass.

Taste the terroir: Bodega de Edgar knows a thing or two about playing with vineyard selections and microclimates. Sample the winery’s rich, chocolatey 2013 Toro de Paso, which features tempranillo from both Letitia vineyard and Stanger Vineyard blended with Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and merlot from three other area vineyard locations. That’s a total of four celebrated vineyards showcased in one bottle! Shop vineyard vibes, click here to shop at Bodega de Edgar

We dare to be different

One thing’s for sure: They truly broke the mold when they made Paso Robles! We’re home to more than 60 wine grape varieties, ranging from cabernet sauvignon and merlot to syrah, viognier and roussanne, to zinfandel, our heritage grape. But did you know we’re also known the world over for bold blends that buck the status quo? From day one, Paso Robles winemakers have been a little more daring than the average bear, always willing to risk it all for one totally one-of-a-kind bottle.

Go bold: Unique, exciting blends are always on the roster at Brecon Estate. We recommend the winery’s many fearless blends, including a surprising zinfandel/tannat and superbly integrated syrah/viognier. As explorers at heart, these folks are known to take the path less traveled! How about you? Shop bold blends, click here to shop at Brecon

We’re only part of the attraction

It’s not all about us. How many wine regions are self aware enough to say that? Here in Paso Robles Wine Country, we know we’re awesome. Blue skies, rolling hills and every kind of tasting room you can imagine…it’s all pretty heavenly. Not only are we home to famous farm-to-table restaurants, incredible olive oil producers and boutique shops, we’re also nestled nearby some of California’s most impressive outdoor wonders. Located a few miles from Highway 1 and the gorgeous Pacific coastline, Hearst Castle, breathtaking hiking trails and vibrant cultural attractions, we are only one piece of the puzzle. Oh, and it is a glorious puzzle, indeed!

Explore it all: Harmony Cellars is known for incredible wines ranging from elegant cabernet sauvignon to creamy, classic chardonnay. But did you know this iconic Paso Robles tasting room is located just a stone’s throw from the tiny town of Harmony, as well as the Cayucos and Cambria coastline beyond? Start your day in sunny Paso Robles and end it with a glorious sunset amidst crashing waves. Where else can you do that? Shop coastal wonders, click here to shop Harmony Cellars

5 Paso Robles Wine Experiences to Ignite 2021

New year, new wine, new you! The holidays are over, the loose ends are tied, and there’s nothing left to do on your list. Now, it’s time to cuddle up to a tantalizing treat: Paso Robles wine. Whether red, white, sparkling, dry, off-dry and sophisticated-yet-sweet, Paso Robles Wine Country is awash in sumptuous vintages (and experiences) crafted to elevate and add much-needed magic to your 2021. Whether you enjoy these selections on New Year’s Eve or enjoy all January long, there’s no yummier way to pop the cork on a brand new chapter. Cheers! You deserve it.

All in good taste

Create a culinary masterpiece: Do like the foodies do, and sprinkle, sauté and simmer your way into the New Year with Allegretto Wines. Seeking a zesty refresher to jump-start your tastebuds? The winery’s chardonnay and spice pairing pack—featuring a perfectly paired glass shaker filled with citrus peel, pink peppercorn, shallots and salt—will get your fire lit once again. Pair this one-two-punch of bright, citrusy fun with chicken, fish or light pasta dishes. Really, you’re the chef! We trust your taste.

Reflect and refresh

Look toward the horizon: With one foot planted firmly in Paso’s winemaking heritage and another striding proudly into the future, ROTTA is the perfect wine selection to honor the balance of old and new. Reflect on the past year and plan for the future as you sip the iconic winery’s 2016 Super Rotta, an inky-red mix of zinfandel and cabernet sauvignon full of lush figgy-mocha goodness. Now you’re ready to take that next step, whatever it may be.

Buy it now, click here

Make room for sweetness

What the world needs now: Celebrate the sweet and tender moments that bring your heart into full focus. Écluse’s award winning Finis Port Style Wine is full of fresh jammy fruit flavor and finishes with velvet soft grace. We say, slip into something cozy and sip this Zinfandel dessert offering with a loved one, a friend or just while enjoying a quiet moment with your four legged friend. Simple pleasures are the sweetest, especially from Écluse!

Buy it now, click here

Start fresh

Wipe the slate clean: Taste the possibility of a renewed slate in every sip of Four Lanterns Winery’s 2018 Lamplight Viognier, which smells of a fanciful honeysuckle garden in full bloom. Thanks to a rustic, unfiltered filtering process, this lush, creamy wine isn’t any old palate cleanser. Raise your glass to the sunlight for the prettiest flash of gold-flecked intrigue.

Buy it now, click here

Level up

Do something that scares you (a little): Whatever your New Year’s resolution might be, we doubt it’ll be as fun as trying out a blending experience virtually hosted by ONX winery. Fix that by signing up for your own experiment (and who knows, maybe you’ll find the winemaker within). Test your skills to see if you can create a blend that rings true to the real deal. Your kit includes a virtual guide, cylinder, pipette, three barrel sample single varietals, a reference wine (that you’ll be trying to replicate) and two finished ONX wines for you to enjoy. That’s right. Even if you don’t succeed, you can still enjoy the fruit of their labor!

5 New Year Paso Wine Resolutions

Whew. One of the longest, toughest years in recent memory is finally  over—and it’s safe to say we all have our sights set on brighter days ahead! I think you’d agree that, collectively, we’re all ready for a glass of Paso Robles wine. Right? As we look joyfully to 2021, let’s plan for fresh new flavors, surprising virtual tastings, and exciting adventures in and around beautiful Paso Robles Wine Country. Don’t just dream it—achieve it! How? You can make all of these wine fantasies (and more) reality with these 5 easy-to-keep resolutions.

Try something new

Go wild! In Paso Robles, new flavors are always celebrated. In fact, it’s part of our pioneering spirit. If you’re feeling blasé about your recent wine choices, we’re here to help! Now is the time to shake things up with vibrant bottles and bold new offerings. From rebellious red blends to elegant Rhone whites and everything in between, you’ll find your new favorite varietal here, in our dynamic family of microclimates. Lone Madrone is all about crafting wines that reflect and honor the vineyards from which they came. Sip the winery’s diverse selection and you’ll soon understand that terroir can vary wildly, even from one hillside to another. Yes, wine is an ever-evolving muse. Take a step off the beaten path and discover what you’ve been missing. It’s all part of the fun! Have you ever experienced Tannat?

We love Lone Madrone’s 2016 Tannat. The fruit is dark, yet quite showy with a vibrant lively feel, there is great depth here with a sense of the forest floor, earth, and stone. Just a touch of vanilla here, perhaps born of the oak. Absolutely stunningly bright red and black fruits herein the mid palate. Long and marked with solid acid, its full, vibrant, rich and long. Crying for red meat. It’s the butcher’s accomplice.

Get organized

Truth: It’s hard to pick an outfit when you can’t see what’s in your overstuffed bedroom closet. Same goes with wine. Allow your pairing skills (and creativity) to soar when you truly are able to view all your wines in one go. Now is the time to take stock of what’s aging in the cellar (or just in your cupboard), bring bottles ready-to-drink to the front of the line—and yes—discover a few vintages you completely forgot you had. We’re all guilty of this one. A bottle worth clearing a little space for? Chronic Cellars 2019 Purple Paradise, a mix of zinfandel, petite sirah, syrah and grenache that bursts with juicy blackberry-mocha charm. In fact, the label’s so cute, you might want to display this one on a fancy new countertop wine rack from Crate and Barrel.

Go Virtual/To-Go

Click, sip, hooray: Virtual tasting are here to stay! Paso Robles Wineries have upped their game lately, providing miniature tasting bottles, Zoom links and all the expert know-how you’d expect from a world class tasting room experience. Many wineries continue to offer sensational virtual tastings, while some—like Parrish Family Vineyardoffer bottles, glasses, and even gourmet food entirely to go.  Want to visit Paso Robles Wine Country in 2021? Embark on a virtual tour! This is a great way to dip your toe in the water (or wine) before you head out on your next road trip.

Plan a trip (safely)

Speaking of traveling to Paso Robles Wine Country: We all need something to look forward to! Not only is Paso Robles Wine Country easily accessible by car (we’re located off the 101 Highway, midway between Los Angeles to the south and San Francisco to the north), but you can also rest assured you’ll be taken care of. Paso Robles Wine Country is home to wide open spaces and rolling hills perfectly tailored for socially distant wine tasting experiences. From gorgeous outdoor patios and verandas to breezy tours among the vines, you can stay safe while you sip. Plus, Paso Robles Vacation Rentals are doing their part to redouble cleaning efforts. Choose from 120 unique stays, including whole house rentals and cottages in the country.  Lekai Ranch offers up a premium stay heightened by 300 degree views spanning more than 50 miles of Paso Robles vineyards, sweeping on toward the backside of Big Sur and Hearst Castle. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that you’re just a stone’s throw from Halter Ranch Winery, chosen as a 10 Hot Winery brand!

Join the Club

Become one of the fam: We’re not your average club! Friendly, outgoing and outrageously friendly, Paso Robles wine clubs are a lot like a group of friends (and pick-up parties are akin to a fun and boisterous reunion for all involved). Paso Robles Wineries offer wine clubs as unique as you are! From shipments featuring your preferred varietals (all red, all white, a mix of both) to amazing exclusive perks reserved for VIPS, you can ensure you’ve signed up for a club that truly “gets you.” Eberle Winery’s Cellar Club is legendary for a reason: get access to new releases, limited production and cellar club wine labels, exclusive discounted pricing along with your regular shipment of delicious wines. The Legacy Club ships six bottles four times per year and allows you to choose between a bottle of mixed red and white wines; all red; all white; or a customizable pack of just your favorite hand-picked selections. That’s right. You do you!
