Cool down at Iron Oaks Winery

Chill out: It’s pretty hot out there, folks! If the raging summer heat has you feeling unmotivated, we get it. Paso Robles is pretty warm this time of year, to put it mildly. Before you head to the cool, dark movie theater or the local pool, try us on for size! Paso Robles Wine Country has the chilled wine on lock (and oh, is it refreshing in June). On a sweltering summer day, swing by Iron Oaks Winery, where the air conditioning is icy and the beef jerky is spicy. Yep, this laid back wine tasting room raises its own beef! We’ll raise a chilled glass to that.

You can stay safe and socially distanced while sipping in Paso Robles Wine Country thanks to the area’s ingenuous outdoor tasting lounges. Sample Kiamie Wine Cellars distinct, dry-farmed blends amid the winery’s lush open air scenery—or spring for a tour that’ll whisk you into the vineyard!

Meet the founders behind 5 fave Paso Robles Wineries

Meet the founders! Behind every bottle is a great vineyard, and behind every great vineyard is a hardworking winery founder! Today, we’re excited to share some of the truly inspirational stories behind the entrepreneurs and visionaries who built some of Paso Robles’ most celebrated wineries. With 300 tasting rooms and counting, our scenic wine country landscape is dotted with as many realized dreams as varietals. All you need to do is belly up to the bar and listen closely. From chasing big ideas to taking massive leaps of faith, these Paso Robles winery founders knew what they wanted and went for it. Lucky for us, right?

Bella Luna Winery: High school buddies aim high

Graduating class: Bella Luna Winery’s story began some 40 years ago in the hearts and minds of its founders, Kevin Healey and Sherman Smoot (they were both high school seniors when they hatched the plan, if you can believe that). Kevin had just returned from serving his country in Vietnam, and Sherman, a Navy Fighter Pilot, wasn’t far behind. Growing up together as best friends in the Paso Robles AVA, they always shared a passion for wine and a curiosity of spirit. Now, you can taste the guys’ big dream in every glass of Bella Luna. This estate winery remains proudly family-owned and focuses on unique varietals that spur on a sense of adventure. Taste the founders’ small lot  premium offerings (grown on ten acres in the Templeton Gap District) when you book an educational vineyard or barrel room tour! Kind of makes us wish we’d stuck with that lemonade stand idea from back in the day!

Kiame Wine Cellars: Opposites attract

Real estate meets real wine passion: In biz relationships, having different backstories has a way of paying off! Kiamie Wine Cellars is a collaboration between two guys with totally diverse yet complementary backgrounds. While living in New York City, Aram Deirmenjian and Greg Johnson always shared a history and enthusiasm for wine. That, it seems, is where the similarities end. Aram grew up working in his family’s vineyards, spending every summer helping out with the backbreaking harvest. Meanwhile, Greg, an heir to the Kiamie Real Estate throne in New York, spent his life sipping fine wines and making a name for himself at one of New York’s top-selling wine shops. Together, the guys realized their dream of developing a world class California winery, naming the business after Greg’s mother’s maiden name, Kiamie. Check out the partners’ distinctive blends when you stop by this scenic tasting room for a flight. Untethered by tradition, the founders live by one golden rule: showcase only the best fruit Paso Robles has to offer. Some things are easy to agree on!

Iron Oaks Winery: Cowboy throws his hat into the ring

Wine cowboy: Iron Oaks Winery Founder Doug Burkett admits he “didn’t know a damn thing about wine” when he started. However, there is far more depth behind the winery founder than just a true blue cowboy attitude. Burkett started selling juice to a winemaking friend in 2010, watching their wine label grow. After a stint in Sacramento bartending and selling wine, he received a chance phone call that led him to San Francisco, where he co-founded Rebel Coast Winery with a pal. After “a ridiculous five year stretch of shenanigans and tons of fun,” he felt it was time to move on.” Burkett said. “That fall of 2017, I moved to our family ranch and started my cattle business, DD Cattle Co. This brought me down to Paso Robles, where a chance encounter with some pretty cool guys (California Coast Beer Co.) opened the door to re-start my wine dream.” In 2018 Iron Oaks Winery was born! But, as the founder likes to say, you’ll have to get the rest of the story by hanging out at the tasting room. Stop by Iron Oaks Winery today and hear this yarn for yourself. Oh, and don’t forget to grab some delicious DD Cattle Co. beef while you’re there!

Villa San-Juliette: American Idol producers spotlight Paso

Lights, camera, wine: Sometimes, the stars have a way of aligning in the most incredible way! In 2005, Villa San-Juliette proprietors Ken and Julie Warwick, along with Nigel Lythgoe, began the pursuit of turning their long-held dream of owning a vineyard into a reality. Once childhood friends in the backstreets of Liverpool, the Emmy-winning pair grew up to produce the primetime hit, American Idol. It was during their time on Idol, traveling between audition cities, that the friends first discovered Paso Robles, which was still a wine region growing under the radar. Not long after consulting with their families, Ken and Nigel purchased and began redevelopment of an old-vine property located at the northern edge of the Paso Robles AVA. Over a decade later, Villa San-Juliette has emerged as a premier wine destination on the Central Coast! Stop by the tasting room for a taste of their efforts paired with a gourmet, seasonal menu. To say that these wine “sing” is an understatement!

Robert Hall: One man’s hard work

Iconic to the last drop: Robert Hall Winery embodies how a whole lot of “can-do” spirit can turn one man’s vision into a truly world-class winery. A small-business visionary, the late great Robert Hall harbored life-long passion for wine and the winery lifestyle (even if he began his journey a little farther north). A self-made man from working-class St. Paul, Minnesota, Hall never shied away from a challenge, opening and growing a broad range of innovative businesses throughout his life. After establishing his namesake winery in 1999, Hall devoted himself to capturing the big, bold essence of Paso terroir. Thankfully, he had the perfect partner in crime: Acclaimed winemaker Don Brady has served as a creative force behind Robert Hall’s award-winning wines since day one. With so much continued passion carrying on Hall’s legacy into the future, it’s no wonder that Robert Hall wines have earned global recognition. You could even say the spirit of the man inspires Paso visitors and locals alike to this very day! Savor a tasting room or to-go experience at the winery to fully appreciate Hall’s dream.

5 Ways Paso Wineries will Surprise You


If you’re brand new to wine tasting, you might assume that tasting rooms are intimidating, stuffy or downright boring. Well, allow us to bust all three of those false preconceived notions in one fell swoop! In Paso Robles Wine County, we know how to have a good time (and we love to share our unique slice of heaven with new visitors)! Although there’s more than 250+ tasting rooms in Paso to suit every conceivable taste, each locale shares one important factor in common: our famous blend of hospitality and award-winning wines! Together, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable experience touched with that warm and welcoming spirit that is just oh-so Paso. Whether you are a first-time sipper or a tried-and-true aficionado, Paso Robles wineries know how to surprise, delight and repeat!

You won’t leave hungry

Fill ‘er up: With so many incredible top notch wineries on the itinerary, it would be silly not to feed you a quality meal or three! This may come as a bit of a shock, but many Paso Robles wineries actually boast their own sit-down restaurant dining experiences onsite. One of our faves? Rural Cass Winery, where you can grub down on amazing culinary creations, enjoy a full wine tasting flight and admire the rugged scenery all without ever leaving your sun-dappled table. Melding French DNA with Paso personality, Cass Winery pairs fabulous food prepared by their onsite chef alongside unique overnight stays and fun-loving events, a winning combination. From the meaty Cass Dip Sandwich (thinly sliced ten-hour smoked premium top sirloin topped with cheese, horseradish and arugula) to a refreshing salad topped with seared Ahi tuna, you can have your wine experience, and eat it too!

We’re as weird as you want to be

Take your pick: Around here, we’re always talking about the diversity of tasting rooms. I mean, don’t we ever get sick of saying we have over 250+ different tasting rooms to choose from? Short answer: No! That’s because there truly is a tasting room for every personality type, whether you love outdoor lawn games, a romantic sunset view or a curated multi-course meal. How diverse are our tasting grooms? Well, one winery exemplifies this notion without uttering a single word. Yes, we are indeed speaking of Tooth and Nail Winery, where you can sip award-winning wines in a unique modern castle setting (selfies required)! Revel in the fantasy of this otherworldly ambiance, enjoy a winery tour, catch some live music or order up a bevy of snacks to share with your loyal court. Suddenly, you’ve uncorked a whole new dimension—an elegant world that overflows with luxurious wines, fanciful conversation and royal table service. How’s that for enjoying your very own happily ever after?

The vibe is chill

Come as you are: Fancy wine means fancy folks, right? Well, as much as we’d like to brag about our excellent taste (I mean, we really do have great taste in everything from grapes to movies), that doesn’t mean we have our pinkies held high in the air. In fact, many of our tasting rooms double as unofficial clubhouses for neighborhood equestrians, bikers, artists and chefs. Iron Oaks Winery is one such beloved relaxed local hangout where everyday people (including a few snooty wine critics) are known to mingle over excellent, small batch bottles, no-fuss cheese pairings and scrumptious lunches delivered right to you. Around here, you’re just as likely to run into cowboy boots over pumps, but that doesn’t mean that all aren’t welcome! As always, you do you! We’ll pour up the best.

We offer way more than wine

You could call us show-offs, and you’d be right: If it’s delicious to eat or drink, you’ll find it on our table. From locally grown Pasolivo olive oil to juicy, grass-fed beef, we truly have it all in Paso Robles! Oso Libre has amazing tasting rooms that happily offer up world class wines alongside juicy, estate raised beef including an array of gourmet cuts such as Osso Buco (trust us, this local delicacy is worth throwing on your grill or in your oven, any time of year)! Similarly surprising, KROBAR Craft Distillery offers up small batch house-made Americana spirits and weekly featured cocktails. Located just off the Highway 46 West, this exciting tasting room boasts an intimate indoor/outdoor space where folks can enjoy the talents of in-house mixologists—and man, are they gifted! I mean, Paso Robles wine is great, but sometimes a crisp cocktail calls. We say, follow your bliss.

5 Reasons to visit Paso Robles Wine Country in Winter

 

Why visit Paso Robles Wine Country in winter? We could name a thousand and one reasons, but we’ll just stick to our favorite five for now! Paso’s offseason is utterly charming, with far less crowds and more opportunities to savor quiet moments with friends and family. The weather is temperate, with warm sunny days and chilly nights enjoyed around a crackling fire. Of course, we’d be silly not to mention Paso’s downtown, all aglow in holiday lights this time of year (you’ll feel our warm and cozy community spirit just by strolling boutique shops and tasting rooms). Plus, winter brings fabulous holiday sales and festive foodie finds! Need we say more? We didn’t think so.

Less crowds

Relax, there’s no rush: Beat the crowds and head to Paso Robles Wine Country, where lines are shorter, tasting rooms are quieter, and you can get that one-on-one attention you crave. KROBAR Craft Distillery offers up a relaxed yet swanky hangout perfect for winter afternoons spent sipping together. Located just off the Highway 46 West, this unique tasting room offers up an intimate indoor/outdoor space where folks can enjoy small batch house-made Americana spirits as well as weekly featured cocktails. KROBAR’s in-house mixologists are constantly creating new and exciting drinks, especially during the festive holiday season! Better gab a few bottles to go for stocking stuffers…we’ve heard that Santa is sick of milk and cookies.

Sunny weather

Meet you by the pool: We don’t know what winter is usually like in your neck of the woods, but around here the days are sunny and sweet! Escape to temperate Paso Robles this holiday season, where the famous Mediterranean climate inspires delicious wine grapes and chill vacations. Allegretto Vineyard Resort doesn’t just boast its own wine label and tasting room, you can also dine at a top notch restaurant, relax at the onsite spa or (get ready for it) lounge in a bikini by a spacious swimming pool. That’s right—take a dip in Paso while the temps dip elsewhere! As the day melts into night, it’s nice to know you can slip into a multi-jet hot tub surrounded by vineyards, too. We could get used to this kind of holiday tradition…

Festive downtown

The heart of it all: Theres’s something so magical about Paso Robles’ quaint downtown in winter. Experience the majestic oak trees, romantic street lamps and stately town clock all aglow in festive holiday lights. Looking for incredible food, fine wine and boutique shopping all in one easy trip? Simply stroll this iconic town square and you’ll be sure to stumble upon more than a few exciting finds. Plus, there’s plenty to explore on the edge of downtown, too, where parking is breezy and there’s never a wait to taste. One such awesome locale to check out? Iron Oaks Winery, which offers up a five star wine and cheese tasting that still smacks of Paso’s down-home authenticity. Pick up fine beef for your festive gatherings that comes from the family ranch and grab bottles of sparkling cowboy buckle champagne to add some yeehaw to the year’s end. It won’t last long.

BONUS! This weekend enjoy a complimentary glass of Rosé at Seven Oxen located off Hwy 101 in the Tin City area!

It doesn’t get more festive than this!

2019 Rosé  – Estate Grown at Seven Oxen
Grenache, Mourvèdre and Zin Rosé
Fermented in Stainless Steel
Aged in Neutral French oak for 6 months by talented French winemaker, sustainable Vineyard Manager, photographer, beekeeper, father, and husband.

The oak gives the wine roundness and creaminess, while the stainless allows to keep bright acidity to create the perfect balance. Notes of strawberry, raspberry , currant and rose petals. It is delicious, we just enjoyed it yesterday.

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!

5 Ways to Taste Paso With or Without Wine

 

We’re so unbelievably spoiled in Paso Robles Wine Country (our cup truly runneth over with world class wines). But that doesn’t mean that’s all we’re about. In fact, our temperate, year-long growing season is a boon to farmers, ranchers and gourmet chefs alike! From luxurious olive oils and farm-to-table entrees to surprising spirits that raise the bar, Paso Robles has made a name for itself as the place to taste. Of course, nothing pairs better with these bonus sensory experiences quite like—you guessed it—a bottle of delicious Paso Robles wine!

 

Farm fresh food

Belly up to our bountiful table. The restaurant scene in Paso Robles is all about fresh, locally grown goodness that smacks of exactly where it was grown. Yes, that carrot was probably plucked from the field yesterday and placed on your plate today (and oh yes, you can absolutely tell the difference). With a vibrant foodie scene full of exciting pairings and unique plates, downtown is the perfect hangout for a fancy romantic dinner or just a casual girl’s night out. Try Thomas Hill Organics for a seasonally fresh meal that wows, Fish Gaucho for a modern twist on Mexican fare, and Pappy McGregor’s for upscale pub grub that really sticks to your gills. The best part? Each of these eateries features an awesome list of Paso wines to sip and savor while you dine!

Excellent olive oil

Drizzle it on! Paso’s mediterranean climate is great for growing wine grapes—why wouldn’t it be fabulous for growing olives, too? This is exactly what wise farmers banked on long ago, noting Paso’s consistently warm weather and ample sunshine. Today, you can still find great EVOO in Paso Robles (we’re not talking about that boring super market stuff, though). At Pasolivo, experience award-winning oils infused with rosemary, citrus, garlic—or go for a classic, single variety oil featuring grassy notes and a subtle peppery finish. Warning: You’ll want to pour these oils on everything…better grab two or three.

With deliciously smoky bourbon, Kaffir lime vodka and a rainbow of gin, rum, whiskey and bitters in between, your bar cart (and future party attendees) will thank you. Weird but true: the ultimate swanky cocktail begins here, in wine country! Swing by the tasting room and sample for yourself…we think you’ll find these beauties were made to sip slowly.

Local meat is a specialty around here, where rolling grassy hillsides offer up natural fodder for premium cattle (it’s true, happy cows do come from California). Iron Oaks Winery knows a thing or two about a quality cut: in fact, you can pick up a few pounds of local, pasture-raised beef at this fun-loving Paso tasting room. Plus, Oso Libre and Rangeland wineries offer up their own incredible estate-raised meats made to melt in your mouth. Fire up the grill and pop that cork! It’s barbecue time.

Elevated snacks

You’re never far from your next great nibble. By now, you know that Paso Robles is chock full of incredible restaurants. But did you know that several local wineries also serve up serious food alongside those fabulous wines? You can expect more than a humble cheese plate at Parrish Family Vineyard, where the seasonal menu features house made sourdough just begging to be dipped in a rich fig and olive tapenade (also on the menu: a refreshing soba noodle salad, seasonal flatbreads and macarons for dessert). Never reach for a bowl of dry tasting room crackers again. I mean, why would you?

5 Paso Wine Myths, Busted

Tasting rooms are boring, the only choice is red and there’s never enough food to keep those tummy grumbles at bay. Allow us to bust those dusty old wine myths, all of which have no basis in reality (but have everything to do with bad media portraits, silly assumptions and a lack of imagination).

In truth, Paso Robles Wine Country is a dynamic, vibrant and ever-expanding place where flavor (and friendliness) always take a front seat. With hundreds of tasting rooms and dozens of varietals to discover, step into a whole new world of wonder. Hey, and while you’re at it follow us on Instagram!

Aren’t your tasting rooms stuffy?

Our wine might be fancy (award-winningly so) but our tasting rooms are beloved local hangouts where everyone is welcome to let loose! From the most opulent tasting lounges to the most chill outdoor set-ups, we pride ourselves on our warm hospitality and gracious spirit. Here, tourists and residents rub elbows and raise a glass to the winemaker—a real-life human being who can often be found in the same room, not on a pedestal! Truly: no question is too silly, no request to small. We’re here to usher you into the family, one sip at a time.

Busted: Think all Paso wine tasting rooms are formal? Sink into a well-worn chair at The Terrace at Écluse and feel your worries melt away. Located just off the crush pad, take in stunning views of Paso Robles Wine Country while unwinding with a glass or a picnic. No dress code required!

BONUS: Écluse is dog-friendly!

You grow a lot of great reds—and that’s it.

OK—we all love a great cabernet sauvignon or malbec around here, don’t get us wrong. That said, there’s so much more to Paso than you think! In reality, we’re home to hundreds of tasting rooms and dozens of  wine varietals ranging from the most obscure to the best loved. From bright, fresh whites and unique dessert wines to celebratory sparklings and bold blends that buck the status quo, Paso Robles wines are as diverse as they are delicious. Plus—and this is the real kicker—we’re becoming known for our dry, elegant hard cider offerings and unique spirits, too. Mic drop!

Busted: In addition to a seemingly endless rainbow of Rhone, Bordeaux, Spanish and Italian wine varietals, we’ve also got some crazy good cocktails behind the bar that you can enjoy on the patio overlooking the vineyard! Case in point: KROBAR Craft Distillery, where small-batch spirits get shaken up for the modern world.

BONUS: Delish food served here!

Wine regions are all the same

Not true! In fact, Paso Robles is home to several distinct microclimates and wine trails, all with their own distinct characters. Savor the breezy coastal influence when you discover the wineries of Highway 46 West. Head east on the same highway and guess what? You’ll find wines that reflect the dusty soil and warmer temps. All you have to do is take a detour through Paso’s enchanting rural terrain and you’ll find yourself on the Back Roads wine trail, where tasting rooms are cozy and family-owned. Need help orienting yourself to this amazing web of wines? Check out our detailed map showing you just where your next adventure awaits.

Busted: Overlooking the quaint village of Harmony, CA (population 18, if you count the cows), Harmony Cellars is a breath of fresh air on a hot sunny afternoon. As the breeze blows in from the sea, you’ll understand what we mean when we say each Paso Robles wine trail is distinctly its own!

BONUS: Lots of fun events are always happening! This weekend savor Harmony Cellars cupcakes and wine pairings on their beautiful hilltop patio.

You won’t find a real meal

Oh really? We know what you were expecting: a bowl of dry crackers and perhaps a little cheese plate, if you’re lucky. That just isn’t going to work for our appetites! You’ll be glad to know that this myth has been beyond busted: Paso Robles love to eat! An incredible growing season means amazing wine rapes and amazing crops—not to mention estate-raised beef, to boot. We are proudly at the epicenter of California’s farm fresh dining frenzy, with legendary downtown restaurants and wineries serving lavish sit-down meals.

Busted: They don’t joke about food at Iron Oaks Winery! In fact, you can pick up a few pounds of local pasture-raised beef finished off from California Coast Beer Co grains at this fun-loving Paso Robles tasting room. What else would a cowboy pair with small batch, boutique wines? Great wine needs a friend, and we believe there is no better BFF than a big, juicy burger!

BONUS: Great grub (move over In-N-Out), and hootin’ tootin’ games to play!

There’s nowhere nice/cool/rustic/elegant to stay!

Let me stop you right there. Have you explored all the options lately? Whatever your dream lodging, you’ll find it waiting in Paso Robles. From romantic love nests surrounded by vines to sun-dappled suites with plush amenities like fireplaces and private tubs—Paso Robles is not your one-size-fits-all stay. Not by a long shot! Whether you’re booking a six-bedroom house for a boisterous bridal party (may we recommend a vacation rental with a barbecue pit and pool) or a private, peaceful getaway (sounds like a spa treatment is order), we hold the key.

Busted: Sip, celebrate and sleep whatever way you please. How? Well, Paso Robles Vacation Rentals allows you to pick and choose exactly the amenities are perfect for you. Search by number of bedrooms, proximity to tasting rooms—even or pet-friendliness! Now you’re one step closer to everyone’s dream: waking up in Paso.

BONUS: Visions of sugar plums will dance in your head!

5 Paso Wines that Pair Perfectly with Pizza

Pizza, pizza! Whether you prefer yours thin and wood-fired or caramelized and deep dish, you’ll never say no to one last tempting slice. Life is full of things to argue about (like whether pineapple does really belong on the toppings list), but we can all agree on one thing: pizza makes any night a party. Thankfully, Paso Robles Wine Country knows a thing or two about food-friendly wines. Try these deliciously juicy bottles paired with your favorite savory pie. Bring on the cheese!

1. Go deep with Villa San Juliette

Crispy caramelized edges and pillows of doughy goodness await fans of deep dish ‘za. But have you tried your fave Chicago-style slice paired with an epic cabernet sauvignon? Sure, a saucy square of deep dish may feel a little too pedestrian for a fancy red, but in Paso Robles we have an overarching philosophy: always drink the good stuff! Villa San-Juliette makes a ravishing cab perfect for washing down that chewy crust: their 2016 VSJ Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe, full bodied and imbued with the perfect amount of nutty spice. Deeply satisfying? Oh yeah.

2. Cali style with Iron Oaks

Not all pizzas are created equally. Next time you’re in the mood for a laid back barbecue chicken pizza topped with bacon, red onion and a creamy white sauce instead of traditional marinara, reach for a refreshing California white blend crafted with all the fun and none of the fussiness. Iron Oaks Winery knows a thing or two about shaking up expectations: Floral on the nose and brimming with lemon crème brûlée on the palate, Flipside is a clean-finishing white blend sure to take that side of ranch to a whole new level. And while you are at it pick up some of their exclusive grass fed beef that they raise locally!

3. Fire it up with Peachy Canyon

Charred toppings and a smoky crunch make those ever-popular wood-fired pies a little sexier than your traditional oven-toasted pizzas, don’t you think? If the scent of a well-stoked fire drives you wild, consider pairing your next sizzling hot slice with an equally bold zinfandel. Peachy Canyon’s award-winning 2017 D Block Zinfandel is intense, in a word. Savor all the sumptuousness of clove, tobacco and allspice paired with cedar and a punch of raspberry. That’s amore!

4. Italy, with love and Pelletiere

With lovingly blackened edges that redefine the word “burnt,” a special wheat flour (dubbed 00, for those in the know) and a simplistic-yet-elegant pairing of vine-ripened tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala cheese, Neapolitan pizza is a true Italian masterpiece you can actually gobble up. Why not buy a case of Pelletiere’s 2017 Tievoli—a super fruit forward and crowd pleasing blend of sangiovese and zinfandel—and know you’ve always got a bottle on hand? This pairing is truly a work of art, no matter how you slice it.

5. DIY yo’ slice with Eberle

The best part about homemade pizza? Well, besides the fact you can make it whenever you want and you’ll never tip a delivery driver—finally, you’re in the captain’s seat. Go with a pre-made gluten free crust or roll it out from scratch the way your grandma taught you; pile on the anchovies or just go crazy with the wild boar sausage. It’s up to you! When DIY is this delicious, pour yourself something fruity, with a twist. Eberle’s 2018 Syrah – Steinbeck Vineyard is packed with blueberry and blackberry pizazz plus a wallop of chocolate and espresso heft. Just don’t forget to set the timer.
