5 unique Paso Wine varieties and where to enjoy them

Wait. How do you pronounce that? Sure, Paso Robles is known for rich cabernet sauvignon and juicy zinfandel wines, but did you know Paso’s year-round growing season is also known for unique varieties you probably don’t drink everyday? If it’s been a while since you’ve tried a few fresh flavors, this is your invitation to dip a toe in Paso Robles Wine Country’s diverse terrain! With dozens of varietal offerings sure to knock your socks off, you need not go by the old standby. Cheers to taking a left turn and landing in delicious territory.

The varietal: Lagrein

Where: Pelletiere Estate

Never afraid of the dark: If you like black coffee, dark chocolate and strong favors all around, you’ll probably adore this rich and complicated wine available now at Pelletiere Estate in Paso Robles.The winery’s 2019 vintage exemplifies lagrein’s most alluring qualities: Dark plum on the palate, silky tannins and a refined finish that lingers on and on. Intimidated? Don’t be. This wine is actually a breeze to pair. Due to its acidic structure, pour it alongside something sizzling off the grill. We’re thinking pork chops, flank steak—even ribbons of savory prosciutto, if you got it. Just make sure to go with strong, intense flavors (otherwise, this bossy wine is sure to steal the show).

The varietal: Tannat

Where: Sextant Winery

Tonight we tannat: This totally underrated varietal should be on your dining room table, OK? Here’s a good one to start with: Marked by bright red fruits and lively acidity, Sextant’s 2019 tannat holds true to the varietal’s most lovely attributes: Market fresh cherries and strawberries immediately greet the nose with hints of fleshy rose petals blooming right out of the glass. Bright cranberry-like acidity opens up the palate, paired with soft and approachable tannins (this means you won’t get that bone-dry mouth feeling associated with many reds). The tasting experience ends with a strawberry jam-like finish that smacks of farmer’s market magic. Here’s to Tannat Tuesdays becoming “a thing” in your house and mine!

The varietal: Grenache

Where: Copia Vineyards

The lighter side of red: Well, gosh if we don’t love ourselves a glass of Paso-grown grenache! The best part of imbibing in this lighter-red varietal? It pairs awesomely with Thanksgiving turkey, summer tacos and spring cheese plates—yes, it’s the chameleon of Paso wines. A crowd-pleasing varietal you should be drinking all year long, you’ll find a medium-bodied red bursting with plush berry flavors and medium acidity. Copia Vineyards’ The Story—a blend of 92 percent grenache and a splash of syrah—is all about showing off this varietal’s extraordinary berry fruit notes intermixed with fennel, violets, and graphite. A touch of layered spice makes the whole package oh-so-nice!

The varietal: Riesling

Where: Tooth and Nail

Not so sweet anymore: Wait. Isn’t riesling best saved for desert? Not in Paso Robles Wine Country. Tooth and Nail Winery’s 2020 Destinata Riesling showcases how this often underestimated white can truly outshine any beverage on the table come Sunday brunch. Fresh and energetic, this offering gets the party started with aromas of peach, mango and white flower on the nose followed by fresh orchard fruit and massive brightness on the palate. The texture is characteristically viscous, but not at all oily (a healthy dose of minerality grounds the whole experience). If you weren’t a riesling fan before, you sure are now.

The varietal: Malbec

Where: Still Waters Vineyards

Enjoy now, smile later: Why save the “fancy wines” for special occasions only? If malbec is something you reserve for birthdays and anniversaries, think again. Still Waters Vineyards’ 2018 Malbec shows that this structured, luxurious red can be enjoyed anytime you like. Medium bodied and showing flavors of lush plum, red cherry, baking spices, cocoa, anise and earthy pepper, you’ll savor bold acid with moderate tannins on the palate. Serve with goat’s milk cheeses, mushroom dishes, roasted veggies and spice-rubbed meats. In other words: meet malbec, your cure to the weeknight dinner doldrums.

5 Paso Wines With Major Sex Appeal

Is it getting hot in here? When it comes to wines that simply scream sex appeal, there’s no place like Paso Robles Wine Country. But just what makes our wines particularly alluring, you ask? Well, it all comes down to a balance of ripeness, craftsmanship and terroir (what can we say—some vineyards are just more romantically appealing than others). Ready for a date with juicy lushness and irresistible intrigue? Quit swiping and look no further than your new flirtation: Paso Robles Wine Country.

Kiamie Wine Cellars 2018 Kuvée

Charismatic cuvée: We all know that power can be sexy, even if shoulder pads have gone the way of the Rolodex. Despite Kiamie Cellar’s Kuvée palpable force, there’s a sense of timeless grace that draws you in (think: bright acidity and classy tannins paired with a substantial mouthfeel). Brooding, intertwined aromas of ash, blackened pepper, ham hock and fresh tobacco slowly unfold into layer upon layer of blackberry, plum and candied raspberries. If words like “depth” and “complexity” have you running for the hills, this is not your soulmate. Ready for a committed relationship? Don’t hesitate. Dive right in.

Anarchy Wine Co. 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Ravishing red: Studies show that wearing red can inspire at least a few carnal thoughts. But what about drinking it in with your eyes and your lips? Anarchy Wine Co sourced from Paso’s Grosso Kresser Vineyard, this crimson wine is all about delivering a shot of intense pleasure to your senses. On the palate, sink into rich red berry fruit with hints of rhubarb, currant and mocha. Wrapped in velvety soft tannins, each sip is designed to lure you deeper still. Featuring a seamless toasted oak finish with a kiss of creme brûlée sugar, you’ll never want this encounter to end.

Diablo Paso 2019 Tempranillo

Aim to please: Some wines just know what they’re doing. Blessed with silky smooth tannins too beguiling to ignore, this bottle is a real Romeo. So, how exactly did Diablo Paso manage to bring forth this perfect specimen? Paso’s wild daily swings in temperature have contributed to the magic (a 22-month bath in American Oak barrels didn’t hurt either). A unique combination of Old and New World techniques have lent this dark red offering a full nose of ripened fruit, dry fruits, leather and tobacco. Plus, notes of chocolate and a round, sumptuous mouthfeel keep us coming back for more. It’s true: Some wines are more swoon-worthy than others!

Derby Wine Estates 2021 Rosé

A beautiful ride: For us, there can be no true love without a period of unbridled romance.

Lose your head in a rich bouquet of candied peaches akin to the most heavenly summer perfume.

Shining with delicate minerality and supple acidity, you’ll find a beautifully blushing wine that soars far beyond flirtation and straight into second-date territory.

5 Reasons Paso Robles Wine Country is Chiller Than Most

Not to throw any major shade, but there’s plenty of wine regions that lack a certain—ahem—chill. Long lines, expensive tastings and an all around pretentious demeanor do not come together to make the wine taste any better. In fact, we think it truly takes away from a great wine tasting experience. In Paso Robles, we aim to keep the mood light and the hospitality warm. You’ll find more than 300 welcoming tasting rooms excited to serve you! So if you’re ready for a friendly, casual and totally fun-loving experience, Paso Robles Wine Country is the place to be. Come on in!

Cowboy character

True to our roots: Our pioneering spirit and cowboy heritage give us an authentic vibe that you just cannot fake! Often imitated but never replicated, Paso Robles hospitality is truly legendary. Whether you’re in boots or heels, you’ll feel at home here among the vines. Travel down iconic Peachy Canyon Road and you’ll see what we mean: Oak-studded hills blend with ranch land and vines. Nearby Bodega de Edgar features a laid back tasting deck where you can chew the fat and swirl Spanish style varietals!  Let your hair down and kick up your heels—we’ll be sippin’ till the cows come home.

We’re all neighbors here

Howdy neighbor! In Paso Robles you’ll find camaraderie among the wineries, not competition. Around here, each tasting route—whether you choose Highway 46, Highway 46 East, downtown or the dusty backroads—bands together to elevate the entire region. In fact, that’s probably why Paso Robles Wine Country has earned its star on the worldwide wine map. At Hoyt Family Wineries’ downtown Paso Robles tasting room, you’ll experience one of many area wineries working to bring glory to our slice of the California dream. Handcrafted, handpicked and totally delicious, these boutique wines are making us all proud, vintage by vintage and day by day.

There’s something for everyone

Why choose? Unlike wine regions that only showcase a few select varietals, Paso Robles Wine Country grows wild and unruly! That means you can find dozens of interesting varieties, from the deep and luscious reds you crave to light, crisp whites and every wine in between. Thanks to our wonderful array of microclimates and soil types, winemakers truly have room to play and experiment. At Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture Garden, you won’t just find cool garden art: You’ll also find an astounding selection of wines.

We know how to relax

Find your beach in Paso: How many world class wine regions do you know that include a tropical tiki bar among its ranks? Downtown Paso Robles’ Cane Tiki Bar is a breath of fresh air and the perfect place to kick back between tastings. Enjoy exotic drinks garnished with fruity twists and fabulous paper umbrellas, dine on tropical plates and bask in the glow of a manmade sunset!

Stay where you play

You’re home now: How often do you go on a wine tasting trip only to find that you’ve really only gotten half the experience? Instead of spending previous time trying to figure out where to park or how to get to that next winery, stay where you play! Yep, you can rest easy knowing that Paso Robles is bestowed with plenty of on-site vineyard rentals. At Michael Gill Cellars, you’ll sample flights of top notch, estate-grown syrah crafted just a stone’s throw from the winery’s adorable vineyard cottage. Wake up to sprawling 360-degree vineyard views and relaxing birdsong—a whole lot better than that annoying alarm clock.

A timeless shade of pink

Why mess with perfection? Eberle’s 2021 Cotes-du-Robles Rosé is everything you’ve ever wanted in a summer sipper—with matching heels! The newly-released 2021 vintage features 80 percent stainless steel, 20 percent old French barrel-aged syrah made in the saignée method—so you know it’s legit. As the soft rose gold wine swirls in your glass, enjoy lovely aromas of pink grapefruit and lychee. Vibrant hints of papaya, dragon fruit, and a touch of passion fruit engulf  the palate followed by a refreshing, vivacious finish. What can we say—this wine is going to look very good on you!

5 Paso Wineries to Fit Your Summer Vibe

Whether you’re ready to catch a wave or relax all day, it’s important to recognize your summer vibe. In Paso Robles Wine Country, you can chill out under the oaks or shake it up downtown—we’re your wine lover’s playground! From swanky stays surrounded by vines to rugged adventures that put you up-close-and-personal with our world famous terroir, you’ll find that Paso Robles Wine Country is your summer fun destination. So, all that’s left to ask is: which one sounds most like you?

The Rugged One

Ranch to Vineyard: Love the land more than anything? So do Oso Libre founders Linda and Chris Behr, who purchased 90 acres of raw land on the Westside of Paso Robles in the late 90s. Slowly, they developed this rough terrain into a sustainable, modern working ranch that now hosts over 25,000 annual visitors! Not only does this ranch-turned-tasting room feature a gorgeous view and delicious wine tastings, but you can also take home a taste of Paso’s rustic ranching history. Angus cattle roam some 65 on-site acres (and when we tell you these cows are happy, we mean it). Think: No hormones, no feedlot, no corn and no stress. Oso Libre’s steers are encouraged to enjoy free-range grasses, legumes and water from flowing creeks. When paired with the winery’s standout red offerings, it’s a pair made in Paso Robles heaven.

Plus, you can pair it all with Sextant’s award-winning zinfandels and smooth Bordeaux blends. After you’ve enjoyed your nosh, visit the townsite, the perfect after-lunch photo opp.

5 reasons Paso Wine Country is Different

Dare to be different! When planning your wine tasting adventure, there’s probably a few must-have items on your checklist. “Is the wine good?” probably hangs pretty high on that list, but there’s so many other factors to consider, too. Is it beautiful? Friendly? Unique? Well, we’re here to say that Paso Robles Wine Country satisfies all of those qualifications (with bells on). With more than 300 tasting rooms and dozens of unique varietals to choose from, plus warm hospitality, a dynamic downtown, close proximity to the coast and so many ways to stay and play, you’ll find yourself thinking, “Wow. Paso Robles is different.” Standing out from the crowd is just what we do. Join us, won’t you?

Something for everyone

Surprise and delight: When it comes to variety, Paso Robles Wine Country can boast with the best of them. Featuring more than 300 tasting rooms ranging from Mediterranean-styled villas to ultra-modern lounges—and every vibe in between—you’ll find the perfect wine tasting experience for you! In fact, we’re home to several unique wine trails and AVAs, each with its own special “it” factor. Nestled along the dusty Backroads Wineries trail, Locatelli Winery offers up bold estate-grown wines ripened in the San Miguel sun. Stop by this scenic tasting room for a splash of afternoon delight or even camp out overnight among the vines—RVs are welcomed!

Warm hospitality

Humble brag: You’d think a wine region this lovely to look at would be a tad snooty to visit. Not so! In Paso Robles Wine Country, your tasting always comes with a heaping side of warm hospitality. Perhaps it’s our agricultural roots—or the fact that we’ve worked hard to earn our place among the world’s most acclaimed wine regions—but we’re known for “keeping it real.” Whether you kick up your boots at a small mom and pop tasting room or head for an elegant estate, you’re sure to be treated like family (and perhaps even meet the winemaker). Stop by Villa San-Juliette’s sun-dappled veranda for a fabulous flight and a hot lunch, and you’ll see what we mean. Savor a gourmet feast of  bruschetta and seafood stew or perhaps a mixed green salad with filet mignon. Your choice. What can we say? We live to serve you.

Enjoy more than a dozen top notch wine tasting rooms, plus foodie-friendly restaurants, cocktail lounges, boutique shops, entertainment, art galleries and more! A true piece of Paso Robles heritage, Derby Wine Estates might be one of downtown’s most prized jewels.

We’re coastal (sort of)

Dive in: When you think of wine grapes, you probably don’t think about the beach. But in Paso Robles Wine Country, it’s all about surf and turf! The Highway 46 West wine trail provides a lovely drive from rolling hills to the coast, delivering you onto iconic Highway 1. Along the way, stop at a bevy of fantastic wine tasting rooms, including Tooth and Nail Winery, our resident gothic “castle.” With groovy live music, small plates and creative wines at the ready, you’ll enjoy the royal treatment the moment you walk across the moat draw-bridge (yes, we said moat!) Next stop? The glittering Pacific, Elephant Seals and Hearst Castle, just beyond. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live like a king or queen…well, now you know.
