Going wine-tasting for the first time, Sunday, in Paso Robles! Any advise?

  1. Lots of good info here:

    Although I vist the Santa Rita Hills area at least once a year, I haven't continued further north to Paso.

    When I finally do check out Paso, Tablas Creek will be my first stop

        Ooh, I adore Paso Robles! Went for the first time last fall, hoping to go back again in December. I second the Tablas Creek recommendation. We really liked Adelaida as well. They had nice wines, beautiful land, and a friendly staff. Loved both places. I think there was something in the NY Times Style section last weekend about a wonderful spot for olive oil tastings as well.

    2. The Turley Pesenti Winery. Turley Zinfandel is a fabulous wine. Turley Wines Cellars based in Napa (no tasting room) purchased one of the oldest wineries in Paso Robles, the Pesenti Winery.
