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.

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!

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 to Enjoy Summer with Paso Wine

Savor the summer before it’s gone! In Paso Robles, the days are long, the skies are blue and the wines are worth writing home about. Thinking of taking a road trip along the California coast? There’s never been a better time to visit Paso Robles Wine Country, conveniently located between Los Angeles and San Francisco (plus, the Amtrak train pulls right into downtown Paso, so you can always leave the car at home). Whether you lounge under an umbrella at a gorgeous outdoor tasting patio, unfurl your picnic blanket and enjoy a wine flight on a fragrant lawn or dig into gourmet eats paired perfectly to your glass, you’ll soon find that summer is Paso’s sweetest season!

Have a picnic

Break out the bread and cheese (and olives, and meats, and desserts): With warm weather and peaceful days ahead, it’s a crime to dine inside all three meals! Instead of worrying about that restaurant reservation, why not pick up a meal and spread out your favorite picnic blanket at a local winery? Four Lanterns Winery encourages picnics, and they should (few places are more well suited for al fresco dining). This casual,  dog-friendly winery is known for its sprawling, grassy lawn perfect for whiling away the afternoon under a cloudless Paso Robles sky. Whether you sip a fruity grenache or a refreshing glass of picpoul blanc, you’ll be glad you brought nibbles to pair. Bon appetite!

Head toward the coast

Go coastal: Yes, it gets pretty hot around here during the summer—a fact that our grapes love. Ready for a beach day? Head to Harmony Cellars, with a lovely view of the hamlet of Harmony, population 18 (if you count the cows). Just a short, scenic drive from Paso Robles on Highway 46 West, enjoy a white, red or mixed flight while the cool coastal breezes refresh your senses. Celebration or party coming up? Treat your family and friends to an immersive educational experience when you book a private tasting on their hilltop patio. It’s the coast plus wine country, the best of both worlds!

Lounge the day away

Your to-do list can wait: Experience the slower pace of life in Paso Robles, where it’s all about squeezing every last drop of the summer season. Austin Hope & Treana Tasting Cellars is the perfect oasis for lounging, relaxing and sipping incredible wines in a swanky setting. With a fresh, modern tasting lounge featuring lots of cozy nooks perfect for conversing with friends, your group will reconnect over Austin Hope, Treana, Liberty School and Troublemaker selections. Consider this your own wine-centric clubhouse for the day!

Lunch in the shade

Taste the rainbow: Escape the sun’s hot mid-day rays under a shaded umbrella at Villa San-Juliette, where the wine is wonderful and lunch always a cut above. This mediterranean inspired villa offers up a romantic place to sip, swirl and savor world class wines paired with gourmet eats. Avocado toast with heirloom tomatoes and microgreens, prosciutto melon skewers dipped in honey glaze, crab cakes with remoulade and lemon—all this deliciousness (and so much more) is on the menu! Seriously, can you believe those are just the appetizers?

Located in Paso’s hip epicurean epicenter of Tin City, you’ll taste a lineup of yummy current releases, as well as rare library selections you just can’t find anywhere else. Looking to shake up your wine cellar with some new additions? You’ve come to the right place. ONX’s blends are known to buck the status quo, from artful labels to creative varietal combinations. Feeling peckish? Grab a cheese and charcuterie box all while enjoying a sumptuous study session hosted by friendly staff. All that learning can make a body hungry!

From notes of ripe wild strawberry and playful watermelon to refreshing layers of grapefruit and citrus zest, Paso Robles Wine Country is ready to pour a fruit-forward rosé sure to make your day! These pink-hued wines may be flirty and fun in the bottle, but what you’ll find inside is sophisticated and elegant with a touch of gleeful whimsy. Isn’t that all anyone really wants from a good rosé, anyway? Well, that and the perfect accompaniment to that poolside cheese plate… Luckily for you, our rosés aim to please!

Jada 2020 1149 Rosé

Express yourself: Aged in 58% concrete, 28% neutral oak, and 14% stainless steel, Jada’s 2020 1149 Rosé balances a decadent mouthfeel with an expressive and lively minerality you’ll just have to experience to understand. Fresh notes of punchy grapefruit and watermelon fold seamlessly into juicy, tangy blood orange, strawberries, and a sprinkle of fleur de sel. According to Jada winemaker Joshua Harp, “Medium to full-bodied, this rosé preserves a bright tension of acidity, while rose water and aromatic white flowers persist through a lengthy, mouth-watering finish.” OK…We’ll have what he’s having!

2019 Villa San Juliette Rosé Reserve

Not from concentrate: Villa San-Juliette’s estate grown grenache is a concentrated powerhouse of fabulous summer flavors (you can thank smaller grapes for producing these flashier-than-usual watermelon and strawberry vibes). She’s a looker, too: a three-day cold soak pushed the juice from a vibrant magenta to an elegant pink hue. With stunning aromas of festive cherry, nectarine and rose followed by hints of  pomegranate and grapefruit, this revved-up rosé is far from a wallflower! Plus, VSJ is featuring a Rosé Case Special now! Stock up and know you’ll be set for the dog days of summer.

Notes of fresh peach, cantaloupe, baked green pear, tart strawberry, and pomelo come together for a bright, light experience that’s all but inspirational.

Seven Oxen 2019 Rosé

Chill out: Ready for a cold one? Seven Oxen’s pressée style rose produced from 35% grenache, 15% mourvèdre, and 50% zinfandel fruit is best served as chilled as you can get it. Notes of strawberry, raspberry, currant and rose petals give this fruit-forward wine a sense of complex romance. Sip slowly and explore how the aromas open ever so coyly in the glass. Fermented in stainless steel then aged for five months in neutral oak barrels, this one is sure to become a favorite at the beach, the pool or backyard barbecue. Just make sure you keep it in the cooler!

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).

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’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?

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.
