If you are looking for a more in-depth view and understanding of Paso Robles wine country, then another Paso Robles Wineries Maps option is the AVA distinction that covers land, varietals, and much more historical and educational views. AVA or American Viticulture Areas are sections of land that are separated into categories that produce different fruit and help with the distinction of the wine making process when a winery wants to explain their Appellation of Origin through geological location.
A great way to get a tour of the AVA regions, the varietals, the wineries and see the geology for yourself is through an air tour. Wine tasting by air is more affordable than you think and many other perks come along with flying over the land. You gain a birds eye view of Paso Robles which is breathtaking and you are able to land at wineries to taste, explore and eat through their connected partners. A great tour guide we found was through Paso Robles Air Tours which was a smooth flight that took off from an easily accessible winery. The guide told us where we were, what we were flying over, showed us the AVA regions and where they were as we flew over them. It made understanding why wine tastes the way it does when different climate, minerals, soil content, water, sustainability, dry farming and other elements are added into the mix and the wine is a completely different result than say the same grape over the hill!
