5 Halloween Candy and Wine Pairings

Grown-ups, rejoice! This year, forget foraging around in the little ones’ pillowcases and pumpkin baskets for a few fun sized treats. We say, pick up your own sweets (for adult enjoyment only) and a few bottles of fab Paso Robles Wine to pair alongside (great party idea!), so that you can enjoy the simple pleasure of trick-or-treat loot on a more sumptuous, sophisticated side. The idea, after all, is to heighten, not frighten, the wine in your glass.

Zinfandel and Hershey’s Milk Chocolate

For some, Hershey’s milk chocolate is too sweet and overwhelming on its own, although a treat that most kid’s adore, right? Good news, it can become your tried and true awesome companion to your Paso Robles wine. Trust us on this one: Pair this overly cloying milk chocolate with a bold, jammy zinfandel and you’ll experience the phantom pairing of chocolate-covered berries with every sip (no fruit required)! We recommend Ernest Hemingway Vineyards 2018 Mountain Zinfandel to complete this delicious magic trick without a hitch. Crazy, right? It truly is uncanny.

Merlot and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Get the party started: Reese’s is all about that classic sweet and salty blend—a match already made in pairing heaven! Why mess with perfection? Well, three’s a party—just wait and see! Start by pouring a little merlot into the mix and see just how amazing a salty-sweet-fruity trio can be. Truly, this is one heck of a shindig happening in your mouth: You’ll savor the sugar from the chocolate and the salt from the peanut butter (which is also slightly fatty). A fruity, slightly tannic Merlot with complementary cherry and plum aromas (perfect for cutting the fat nicely), like Stilson Cellars‘ 2019 vintage, shakes the whole thing up. There you have it: a brand-new flavor combo for the ages!

Chenin Blanc and Skittles

Taste the rainbow, and then some: This might seem like a weird one, but the high acidity in chenin blanc off sets the sweetness in Jolly Ranchers (and oh, do they have a lot of sweet to offer). Tooth and Nail makes an enticing bottle worth trying this Halloween season (try their Destinata, a fresh, acid-driven online-exclusive), bursting with lively aromas of lime zest plus flavors of apricot and lemongrass.  With 17 flavors of Jolly Rancher to play with, including cherry, blue raspberry, grape, green apple, fruit punch and watermelon, you can paint with all the flavors of the rainbow!

Grenache and Snickers

Treat yourself: Long day battling witches and goblins? We can relate! Now, try this: Run yourself a hot bath and pair a medium-bodied red, like Brecon Estate’s 2019 Grenache Adelaida, with a Snickers bar. Now, watch your troubles (and your hunger pangs) melt away down the drain. The chocolate-covered roasted nuts and nougat from the candy seem to hug the wine’s juicy, ripe red fruit like a loving embrace. This one a self care routine worth keeping, if you ask us.

Chardonnay and Candy Corn

Corny but crave-worthy: Love it or hate it, you’re probably going to eat a handful of candy corn this Halloween season (it’s the law, and we don’t make the rules). This fall, why not make your obligatory candy corn experience a little more enjoyable with some help from your good friend chardonnay? While the candy corn’s overt buttery vibe mimics the chardonnay, its off-the-charts sweetness is softened by the wine’s complex, toasty character. Iron Oaks’ refreshingly non-traditional Chardonnay (bolstered by a splash of pinot gris and viognier) has a way of actually transforming this oft-maligned candy into a total knockout worth anticipating. That waxy texture, however…it just can’t be helped!

Emoji like a Paso Robles Local

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emojis, we know them well! 2021 might have ushered in the era of peak emoji use for all humans (just ask your grandma which one she sends most—the bouquet of flowers, thumbs up or double heart?). These days, the crying smiley face, perky unicorn and confusingly happy poop emoji are as much a part of our daily conversations as simply saying “hello.” Knowing this, it makes sense that your most commonly used emojis say quite a bit about you. In Paso Robles Wine Country, our emojis do just that (we’re all about sun, fun and sippin’ on the best wines around). Hey, winemakers gotta text, too! 

Surfer + Hang Loose 🏄‍♀️ 🤙

Surf’s up in Wine Country! Wait, fine wine and hanging ten? This might seem like a weird combo, but trust us—it’s all in a day’s fun under the sun. Located just a few miles from Highway 1 and Cayucos, Harmony, Cambria and Big Sur beyond, Paso Robles Wine Country is the perfect Golden State getaway combining rural vineyard views and breathtaking beach days (take the scenic route along Highway 46 West to experience a diverse lineup of local wineries followed by a lovely coastal experience awaiting just beyond). It makes sense, then, that many local winemakers are also surfers, kayakers and stand-up paddle boarders rising at dawn to check on the grapes and the surf. Case in point: the original founding brothers of Chronic Cellars, brought their love of shred tasty waves and blending even tastier wines, into their branding. You can still experience the guys’ signature laid back vibe paired with bold single-varietals and blends at this casual tasting room! Gnarly good, brah.

Cowboy + wine 👨‍🌾 🍷

Ye-haw! Yes, it’s true that Paso Robles is where cowboy country meets wine country (just head out onto the backroads and count the cattle, horses, goats and barbed wire fences). Still, we’ve managed to combine these authentic Old West traditions with world class wines all while keeping our famous down home hospitality intact (and proud of it). Kick up dust on the Backroads Wineries trail winding through the Eastside of Paso Robles and the rural community of San Miguel, and you’ll see what we mean right quick. At Cass Winery, you can belly up to a fabulous table-side wine tasting paired with incredible gourmet food, enjoy some live music under the stars or hop in the saddle! That’s right: gallop through the vines and imagine what your life might be like if you truly trotted into a romantic Western novel. Hey…just because we’re fancy, doesn’t mean we have to sip with our pinkies up!

Sunset + pow 🌅 💥

Wish you were here: It’s easy to make everyone on your Instagram feed jealous when you’re hanging out in Paso Robles Wine Country come sunset (#PasoRoblesWineries!) With glorious streaks of pink, orange and red painted across a wide open sky, these sunsets are legendary when savored among the vines. Oh, and the stargazing is nothing to scoff at, either! Located in rural Paso Robles, Still Waters Vineyard offers up a breathtaking sunset view of the area’s gently rolling hills, lush vines and majestic oak trees all backdropped by one glorious photo opp. Relax in the garden for the ultimate private, outdoor wine tasting experience, complete with a knowledgeable attendant ready to guide you through the lineup (you can also bring a picnic or purchase a made-to-order cheese plate for dinner and a “show”). Oh, and the wines aren’t bad either–in fact, we believe they’re the physical embodiment of a true natural wonder. Taste for yourself!

Cocktail + Rock n roll 🍹 🎸

It’s happy hour somewhere: We may be self-described wine freaks, but trust us—we can still appreciate an expertly-mixed cocktail! In fact, Paso Robles Wine Country is also known for craft beer, hard cider, hard seltzer and unique spirits made to be savored slowly, sip by sip. Always pouring up something fresh and zesty, KROBAR Craft Distillery offers up outrageously creative and delish spirits—including barrel aged whiskey, bourbon, rum and vermouth—plus uniquely pungent bitters (olallieberry citrus, anyone?). Sample a few spirits at the bar or pick up a bottle for your next soiree. Just be sure to ready yourself for a “wow” moment (around here, the old daft rules are made to be shaken up).

When it comes to flavor, we’re always searching for that next great taste (and thanks to a temperate year-round growing season, we have plenty of material to work with). With a penchant for farm fresh produce, creative, genre-bending menus and surprising twists on the old classics, you’ll find our humble dining scene offers up more than the boring white tablecloths of yore. Sample the finest peak season fruits and veggies at Thomas Hill Organics, ignite your taste buds with elevated Cali-Mexican fare at Fish Gaucho, dig into unconventional comfort food at Pappy McGregor’s, or simply dunk a hunk of bread into a lineup of luscious olive oils at Pasolivo. Wherever you roam, you’ll be sure to leave fed and happy.

5 Paso Robles Wines to Quench your Color Craving

Color is magic, with the ability to make us instantly happy, calm or energized all in an instant. Just think about the last time you saw a shiny manicure, a glossy paint job, or a vibrant bouquet of carnations bursting with cheer. Next time  the doldrums hit, pull out a bottle of color therapy (there’s no better place to start than your wine rack). Paso Robles reds, whites and rosés aren’t just made to wow your taste buds—they’re easy on the eyes, too! Now, let’s taste the rainbow:

Pink: Ecluse 2020 Rosé

Think pink: The color of sunsets, cherry blossoms and blushing cheeks, it’s no wonder that pink is a calming color associated with love, kindness, and soft, relaxed feel-good vibes. Want to test this theory out for yourself? Écluse’s refreshing 2020 Rosé is the perfect pink drink to enjoy on a leisurely afternoon (be sure to chill the bottle, though, before you indeed chill out). Aged in stainless steel, this wine is balanced with aromas of honey, citrus, orange peel and stone fruit leading to flavors of peach, nectarine and strawberry. But don’t underestimate its classically feminine appeal. We suggest anyone needing a pick-me-up take a deep dive into Paso’s incredible (never cloying) blush-toned bottles. You might just be surprised by the power of pink!

Red: Lone Madrone 2017 Oveja Negra

Seeing red: You probably already know that ruby lips and crimson roses have a way of revving up the nervous system. But did you know that the color red can actually increase a person’s heart rate? The warmest and most dynamic of all hues—this vibrant shade triggers a passionate response, that’s for certain. Inject some fiery romance  into your life with Lone Madrone’s most ravishing garnet-hued Rhone blend, sure to get the blood pumping fast. A balanced wine with ample fruit plus enticing spice and game notes, you’ll be surprised by its ability to wow with restraint. Naturally, this luscious red inspires sighs of pleasure when paired with charcuterie or chocolate-dunked anything (wink wink).

Purple: Michael Gill  Cellars Syrah

Associated with mystery, royalty and wealth, the magnificent color purple also has a way of making folks feel extra creative (so next time you’re trying to solve a particularly confounding problem to solve, just watch a Prince video). At Michael Gill Cellars, you’ll have no shortage of purple-tinged wines to experiment with—in fact, winemaker Michael might even be known as Paso’s unofficial “Saint of Syrah.” Stop by this European hunting lodge-inspired tasting room and see what we mean: from rich plum to bright violet, these boutique syrah offerings shine with a singular gloss that rivals royal jewels.

Yellow: Austin Hope 2020 Sauvignon Blanc

Whether lemon, canary or golden, yellow has the incredible superpower of lifting our spirits up, up and away (perhaps that’s because it’s the most energetic of the warm colors associated with laughter, hope and sunshine). The second vintage of Austin Hope’s exclusive sauvignon blanc, this 2020 single varietal offering explodes with jubilant white floral and citrus aromas balanced with juicy tropical notes. A bright dash of acidity and a lingering finish inspire a true-to-life happy face. With these kind of cheery vibes on tap, there’s no need for an emoji!

Black: Hoyt Family Vineyards 2014 Petite Sirah

Dark and lovely: Whether it comes in the form of a classic black cocktail dress or late model limousine, black exudes a sense of class, sex appeal, sophistication and elegance (not to mention luxury, professionalism and minimalism). Few swatches boast such an instantly bold and powerful appeal—and no, we don’t just mean for the latent goths among us. Petite Sirah’s inky hue and bold taste actually derive from wine’s high skin-to-juice ratio, a big factor in creating exceptional tannin and acidity, too. Hoyt Family Vineyard’s 2014 Petite Sirah isn’t here to play around, either: with big bold legs, a rounded mouth feel and silky finish, it’s a lot like a well-tailored suit. That is, to say, infinitely appealing!

5 Paso Robles Wine Fall Favorites

Around here, fall is more a state of mind—and a state of flavor. Still, that first nip of cool air has us bundling up prematurely (in Paso Robles Wine Country, even Autumn is sunny and temperate). With shorter days on the horizon and holidays on the brain, we’re ready for festive reds, sumptuous blends and celebratory offerings to replace chilled whites and refreshing roses. Maybe it’s the fact that harvest season is in full swing or perhaps it’s the vines turning from green to gold. Either way, we’re gravitating towards a richer glass. How about you? If you’re feeling the festive vibes too, you’ll want to check out these 5 fall favorites ready to add a dose of comfort to those cozy days ahead!

Robert Hall 2018 Paso Red

Baked to perfection: Warming aromas of berry cobbler, savory herbs and tobacco give this full-bodied blend instant Autumnal appeal. Featuring fine grained tannins on the mid-palate and a long spicy finish, you’ll wonder if this Robert Hall wine—comprised of 43% petite sirah, 21% syrah, 19% zinfandel, 10% petit verdot, 4% grenache, 3% mourvedre—isn’t imbued with a bit of grandma’s love, too. Truly, it is bewitching to behold—and even better when served with apple pie!

Sculpterra 2019 Pinot Noir

Juicy and jubilant: Sculpterra jam packs this wine with fresh, easy drinking red fruit aromas and subtle bouquets of earthy spice, this celebratory showstopper is worthy of any upcoming dinner party or soiree. Dazzle them with flavors of pomegranate and candied berries bolstered by whiffs of floral bliss (don’t you wish your whole house could smell like that?). With a distinct French feel that finishes smooth and plush, this pinot noir only tastes like it should cost an arm and a leg! Never a bad thing, right?

Eberle 2018 Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

Stroll with me: With approachable tannins, juicy acidity, and flavors of black cherry, red currant, black plum, and dried sage, this wine feels a lot like walking amongst fallen leaves on a cool Paso Robles evening. Medium bodied yet never too overpowering in its heft, this unassuming red is happiest paired with a burger or a bit of aged cheddar. Think of this one as your go-to fall boots, just like Eberle: well loved, comfortable and totally classic.

5 Paso Robles Wine Pop Quiz Questions

 

The kids are heading back to school, which means packing up those books, pencils and brown bag lunches. It might have been a while since you hit the books yourself, but learning never loses its allure. No matter what age, we can all enjoy the power that comes from developing our minds (at least, that’s what our teachers used to say). How much, may I ask, do you think you know about Paso Robles Wine Country? With varied tasting rooms and dozens of varietals to explore, there’s always an opportunity to dive deeper into our favorite subject: Paso Wine 101. Yes, this will all be on the test!

Q: When did winemaking begin in Paso Robles?

A: A long time ago! In fact, wine has been made in Paso point since Mission San Miguel Archangel was established in 1787. After the Gold Rush, many immigrants moved south to pursue agricultural endeavors bringing along their cultural traditions, which included wine (perhaps the one thing we can all agree on). Over generations, these families would become the first commercial wine grape growers in the region. Today, Paso Robles winemakers continue to salute these early immigrants for their ingenuity and passion.

The more you know: We truly are a community of immigrants in Paso Robles, and the folks at Sixmilebridge celebrate this fact. The winery is named or the small town located in County Clare, Ireland once home to James Moroney, owner Jim’s great-grandfather, prior to immigrating to the U.S. Jim really says it best: “This anchor in the past reminds us that every step, no matter how seemingly unconnected, has led us here, to Paso. We’re thankful for that. We know this place is where we can make great wine.”

Q: How big is the Paso Robles American Viticultural Appellation (AVA)?

A: Larger than you might think! The Paso Robles American Viticultural Appellation (AVA) is home to more than 250 wineries and a whopping 40,000 vineyard acres focusing on premium wine production. Paso Robles’ viticultural areas are as diverse as the grapes grown on them, including Adelaida District, Creston District, El Pomar District, Templeton Gap District, York Mountain and so many more. Plus, each of these distinct areas boast their own microclimate!

The more you know: One of the coolest corners of Paso’s west side, The Willow Creek District is known for its chalky, calcareous soil and steep elevations as compared to the largely flat, east side of Paso Robles. Jada’s estate vineyard epitomizes Willow Creek’s charms, with hilltop terraces chock-full of fractured shale, rocks and even fossils (the west side of Paso was once an ocean floor, rising 1,300 feet above sea-level). Now that’s crazy to think about, right?

Q: What wine first put Paso Robles on the map?

A: Zinfandel is known as Paso Robles’ heritage grape for a reason! In the 1920s, famous Polish concert pianist Ignace Paderewski planted the Italian varietal on his Rancho San Ignacio vineyard in the Adelaida area, inspiring a whole new chapter in Paso Robles agricultural history (goodbye almond orchards, hello vines!). In fact, you can still find old Paso vine zinfandel today that dating back to these early years. Hey—if it aint broke, why replace it?

The more you know: Zinfandel is still an extremely popular grape in Paso Robles Wine Country, with its own annual festival and offerings ranging from jammy to spicy to fruit forward. Medium-bodied with vibrant acid and flavors of brambly red raspberry, white pepper, dried violet petals, black currant, and delicate sweet tobacco, Still Waters Vineyard’s 2017 Zinfandel carries on the legacy of flavor that Paderewski began so long ago.

Q: What was Paso’s first claim to fame?

A: Hint: it wasn’t wine! For thousands of years, the Salinan inhabited the area, hunting, gathering, and soaking in its natural hot springs. As far back as 1795, Paso Robles had been dubbed “California’s oldest watering place” due to the area’s hot sulphur springs and natural mud baths. This, indeed, was the selling point that initially drew people from all over the world to come to the Paso Robles area. Today, folks still visit the Paso Robles Inn with the intention of soaking in these therapeutic waters.

The more you know: The folks at Rangeland Wines have owned historic Adelaida Springs Ranch since 2000, but the land has been home to humans for thousands of years, from Native American acorn gatherers to mission-era herders and finally to American miners and homesteaders in the 19th century. The ranch is adjacent to the historic Klau and Buena Vista Mines, which were the commercial hub of the area as early as 1870. Previous owners include Marshall Sawyer, whose father Frank Sawyer was the house physician and general manager of the then-grand Hotel De Paso Robles Spa at the turn of the century. One of the winery’s long term goals is to publish information about local homesteaders and document the title and occupying family history of each of the parcels here on the ranch!

Q: What kind of wine is Paso Robles known for?

A: Thanks to a year round, temperate growing season and plenty of sun, Paso Robles is uniquely positioned to grow supremely ripe, fruit forward red wines. The region is best known worldwide for its popular cabernet sauvignon and Bordeaux varietals, jammy zinfandel and Rhone offerings, including grenache and syrah. Although Paso Robles has become known for excellent whites and more refined reds, the official motto of the region has continued to be “the bolder the better!” Paso’s established and emerging winemakers have also made a splash with taking these iconic reds to new levels  by blending them together—oftentimes with surprising results.

The more you know: Not many Paso Robles wineries buck established tradition quite as loudly as ONX, where red blends are crafted with a sense of playful artistry and irreverent humor. This bold attitude is part and parcel with Paso Robles’s pioneering history, a narrative that finds parallels in the wines. Unhindered by convention, the ONX Winemaking Team strives to create balanced wines that reflect both terroir and vintage. From rule-breaking to blind blending, each vintage of ONX Wines is completely different, yet delightfully cohesive.

Stilson Cellars highlights suicide awareness with ‘Aware’ Zinfandel

Starting Sept. 1, Paso Robles winery to donate half of Aware Zinfandel
proceeds to National Awareness on Mental Illness in honor of fallen firefighter Sean Stilson

No one ever thinks their lives will be touched by the incomprehensible heartbreak of suicide. Alas, there are about 130 suicides on average in the United States per day according to the CDC. Each life lost represents an entire world that crashes down for the survivor’s spouse, children, and loved ones. It’s not uncommon for whole communities to be left reeling in the bleak aftermath of a fallen friend, colleague—or in this case, a beloved 20-year Los Angeles Fire Department veteran with a big heart and bigger desire to serve.

Those who knew the late great Sean Stilson can attest to the third-generation LAFD captain, father and husband’s overwhelming passion to care for those around him. It was a duty so large, so all-encompassing, that widow Deb Stilson said it defined her 44-year-old husband’s big-hearted character.

“He was one of those people who was loved by everyone, and he was always on top of everything, taking care of the community and making sure everyone else was OK,” she said.

The widow may have opened Paso Robles-based Stilson Cellars (located in downtown Paso Robles across from Hotel Cheval) in the wake of an immense personal loss, but she and the couple’s two sons, Cole and Tyler, were heartened when the Paso Robles Wine Country community showered the family business with support and love. Cole even went on to study winemaking and is now at the helm as winemaker, while brother Tyler followed in his dad’s footsteps as a LAFD firefighter. Together, the boys did their part to help transform the family’s five-acre Geneseo District vineyard property into a homestead their dad could be proud of.

“My sons and I started dreaming and fantasizing about being able to come back to the Paso Robles area. We always wanted to return to where we had all once lived when my husband was alive,” Deb said. “As we were driving home from visiting my husband’s mom and dad who live in Cambria, we started to dream of owning a vineyard and making wine. This was not necessarily Sean’s dream, but a dream to come back.”

Since opening their doors in 2019, Stilson wine club memberships continue to roll in, bolstering the family’s spirits.

“From the very beginning, I felt we were wrapped in support and love and caring,” Deb said. “Everyone has been super helpful and this community is full of generous people.”

Founded in the family patriarch’s loving memory, the winery stands as an homage to a man who perhaps would still be here today if it were for better mental health awareness. This is not a notion taken lightly by Deb or her sons. In honor of September National Suicide Prevention Month, Stilson Cellars will offer up a special,  limited-edition 100% zinfandel offering aptly titled “Aware.” Half of the wine’s proceeds will go to NAMI (National Awareness on Mental Illness), which offers real-time mental health support and guidance every day.

“Theres a huge stigma in talking about it; no one wants to talk about something so incomprehensible, ” Deb said. “Our fire fighters and service men and women are at higher risk for mental illness and suicide, and my sons and I hope that this small effort can help in part to open that larger conversation.”

The newly-released Stilson Aware Zinfandel (just 52 cases produced) isn’t just bringing awareness to an important cause in any community, it’s also an incredibly delicious single varietal offering that exudes joy and hope.

According to the winery’s expert sommelier, each sip is “exploding with candied fruitiness, reminiscent of a Strawberry Fruit Roll Up sprinkled with caramelized cranberry, tobacco and clove notes. Sugar plum and baked bramble berry prelude a juicy acidity and waxy tannin, while the essence of raspberry preserves and crushed cinnamon shine on the palate. The finish allude to sour cherry, star anise, vanilla mocha and finely cracked pepper.”

The wine would pair incredibly with pulled pork, Texas barbecue, roast turkey, or grilled summer veggies. Stilson said she hopes the luxurious red is enjoyed and shared among loved ones, and that folks continue to hold their friends and family close.

“No one wants to lose a loved one, but without more mental health awareness, who can say what will change? If we can talk openly about mental health issues, we can start to shift the narrative,” Deb said. “One life saved, or even one honest conversation had, is absolutely a win for us.”

Visit  Stilson Cellars

At Stilson Cellars, family is at the heart of all they do. Dog friendly and featuring Paso’s famous warm hospitality, the winery is home to robust reds, including mourvedre, syrah and estate grown cabernet sauvignon offerings. Located at 1005 Railroad Street #2 in Paso Robles, reservations are never required to stop by and savor the Stilson family legacy. The winery is open Friday and Saturday noon to 7 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.  More information can be found at www.stilsoncellars.com.

Wineries who care

Making wines, making change: Paso Robles Wineries care deeply about crafting world class wines, but that doesn’t mean these passionate folks aren’t working toward more altruistic goals, too.

Hayseed and Housdon donate 50% of their proceeds to local Paso Robles charities and nonprofits, including Paso Cares, Wine4Paws, RISE, Operation Surf and CASA of SLO County, to name a few.
