Paso Robles is located in central California, just a 3.5 hour drive north of Los Angeles. You can expect to find outstanding wine, beautiful sights, and hospitality that instantly makes you feel like family. See below for some of my winery recommendations and where to stay!
My first recommendation is Cass Winery. Not only is it an absolutely stunning property, but incredible wines! Here you can enjoy a Marsanne and Roussanne side by side, or sip on an estate Backbone Syrah and see with your own eyes where the name “Backbone” comes from.
They are always hosting a variety of events including Wednesday night dinners. I had the luxury of attending a Spanish themed wine dinner presented by Chef Charlie and owner Ted. If you get the chance, add one of these dinners to the top of your list!
And just when you thought Cass Winery couldn’t get any better… introducing the GENESEO INN. These modern villas are situated right in the middle of the vineyards and include a full breakfast served to your room every morning. Nothing like waking up with sun and a steaming cup of coffee in the middle of the vineyard!! If you are looking for a place to stay in Paso Robles, look no further than the Geneseo Inn for pure luxury and comfort.
Here’s a few more wineries to consider on your trip:
Chateau Margene is an adorable family owned winery with high quality wines. They do vineyard weddings on this stunning property. It’s the perfect place to sit and relax with a glass of wine. Visits are by appointment only, so be sure to call ahead to set something up!
I absolutely loved the estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Then we topped it off by walking through the vines and seeing the sustainable and biodynamic vineyards that the fruit came from.
If you’re looking for comfortable, urban tasting spot with incredible wines with a French influence, look no further than SEVEN OXEN.
Another amazing spot to add to your list is ONX WINES. This amazing vineyard grow so many unique wines and classic Paso GSMs.
Throughout the property, are many different “oasis” spots where you can sip among the vines with your crew. You can call ahead and reserve one of these stunning oasis spots to ensure the most relaxing and enjoyable sipping experience.
Paso Robles has so much to offer, it needs to move to the top of your list!!
