Help Us Plan Our Next Paso Robles Tour!

Few things are as much fun as exploring new wineries! We are putting together another long weekend in Paso Robles, and it is time to select new wineries to explore. The area has over 200 wineries, so choosing ten to visit can be pretty overwhelming. That’s where you come in. What are your favorite wineries in the region? We would love some suggestions!

The McPrice Myers Winery

After some great tastings at Adelaida Cellars and DAOU Winery, we felt that we had time and energy for just one more winery. Based on our research and some excellent advice from a friend, we decided that our final tasting in Paso Robles would be at the McPrice Myers Winery. Although we gave up a […]

The DAOU Vineyards and Winery

After an amazing start to day two of our Paso Robles adventure at Adelaida Cellars, we drove just a short way back down Adelaida Road toward the highway, to the entrance to DAOU Vineyards and Winery. As we made our way along the winding drive, we spied a mansion perched at the top of a mountain top. Could […]

Adelaida Cellars

Day two of our Paso Robles adventure arrived full of sunshine and promise. The second day of any wine tasting trip requires fortitude and focus (and a certain amount of attention paid to breakfast) so we try to plan our first winery of the day to be something special. This morning was no exception. The […]

Jada Winery

Our day of wine tasting in Paso Robles was drawing to a close. As we left ZinAlley, we decided that we had time for just one more winery. We had reservations at a great restaurant, so time was of the essence. Sometimes tough decision must be made. We decided to spend our last tasting of […]

The ZinAlley Experience

Our visit to Paso Robles continued on from Caliza Winery. When our son, Brian, and his wife Julie, learned of our plan to visit the area, he told us that if we only had time for one winery, that winery should be ZinAlley. With a recommendation like that, we made sure to fit ZinAlley into […]

The Caliza Winery

Our visit to Paso Robles was going strong, with great experiences at the Terry Hoage Vineyards and the L’Aventure Winery. Flushed with success, we continued down the winding country road to our next stop: the Caliza Winery. Our streak of great wineries continued! A lot of fun in a compact space The tasting room is […]

Visiting L’Aventure Winery

From the Terry Hoage Vineyards, our Paso Robles excursion continued to the L’Aventure Winery. The dirt road experience continued, sadly, but the beautiful countryside and sunshine pouring into our car made it worth the car wash that was in our future. We had learned, belatedly, that L’Aventure Winery was a “reservation only” tasting room, but […]

The Terry Hoage Vineyards

After nearly a decade away, we finally decided to return to Paso Robles. Granted, our trip was partially motivated by our desire to try out our new hard-top convertible on country roads with the top down. The weather forecast was promising, so we made some reservations and set off in our new wheels. First stop? […]

Wonderful White Find in Paso Robles

This past weekend I had a pleasure of visiting Halter Ranch Vineyard in Paso Robles. The flight opened with the biggest surprise of all…a spectacular Rhone white blend called Synthesis. Synthesis is a blend of 46% Viognier, 35% Rousanne and 19% Marsanne. I termed this the biggest surprise because I usually pass on the whites […]
