Must Visit Paso Robles Wineries

Bruce in SLO Feb 15, 2010 08:33 AM

Time to change the focus and give credit to those small and interesting wineries in the area.
My list to start would include:
Dover Canyon
Villa Creek
Edward Sellers

Many more, especially in the Downtown Cluster.

      I'd add:

      Jacob Toft (might be able to connect with him at L'Aventure to score some of his own label)
      Tablas Creek
      JC Cellars

        Nice parallel post here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/679905

        Any size requirements on your description of "small and interesting"?

          Plan on taking the back road (Paso/Cambria) by Justin. Any other suggested winery stops along that route?

            Along the Justin (Paso Robles) route to Cambria, you will find Halter Ranch,
            Opolo, Denner (very good) and Dover Canyon. All are excellent IMHO.

              Thanks, Bruce, I'm very familiar with Opolo. :-) Will check out the others too.

          Chronic Cellars!
          Anglim and Tablas Creek are two of our absolute favorites.
