Wine Tasting in Paso Robles
Paso Robles has become one of California’s most exciting wine regions. Ten years ago, there were under 100 wineries and today there are more than 200. The wines are garnering increasing acclaim too!
For decades, Paso Robles was California’s ultimate cowboy town, a land of cattle grazing on rolling hills. Now those hills are more likely to nurture Cabernet vines.
The region is a major player in California winemaking. But it also retains its county informality. It’s the wine region for people who want good wine but no crowds, who seek good dining and open roads. About 32,000 acres are planted in vines, producing more than 40 wine grape varieties – from Spanish to Italian, Bordeaux to Rhône, including the area’s heritage variety Zinfandel. The styles of wine are diverse in this very distinct region.
Paso Robles wine grape growing region’s climate is perfect for the production of award- winning premium wines. A long growing season of warm days and cool evenings give rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavor profiles that translate beautifully in your glass of Paso Robles wine.
We invite you visit some of the area’s acclaimed wineries. There are over 100 wineries within 35 miles of LandsEnd Vacation Rentals. Please check the wineries hours of operation because many are by appointment only. Visit pasowine.com for a complete listing of wineries and more information about the local wine events.
If you don’t want to drive yourself, there are several options for visiting wineries in our area. Have a limousine or shuttle van pick up your group at Lakefront at LandsEnd, or drive into town and use one of the many guided tour shuttles. There is even “The Wine Line,” that offers a low-cost “hop on, hop off” shuttle service to a predetermined route of wineries. Their van runs in a constant loop, picking up and dropping off customers approximately every 40 minutes. That way you can visit for 40 minutes and move on. OR stay longer and wait for the next shuttle in 40 minutes. A brilliant and fun concept!
