18 Oct Six of the Best Wineries to Visit in Paso Robles
When going on a wine tour, fun is next to guaranteed. Whether you’re having fun on a party bus with a group of friends, hiring a limo service for a special event, or taking a private car with your colleagues, wine tours in Paso Robles are always a good idea and something that every local (and visitor) should experience.
According to California Winery Advisor, these are some of the best wineries to visit on your wine tour.
1. Eberle Winery
Owner Gary Eberle was NFL-bound before experiencing a career-ending knee injury. Instead, he wound up pioneering Eberle Winery, where you can taste the wines, take a tour of the wine cave, or simply play bocce and drink wine on the deck, overlooking the vineyard. While Eberle seems secluded, it is only a quick stop off the highway.
2. L’Aventure Winery
A former barley farm, L’Aventure was transformed into an impressive vineyard, lined with the large oak trees that Paso Robles is named for, and equipped with a fabulous tasting room. Owner Stephan Asseo rejected strict French wine regulations and introduced many different varietals into his blends. The 2013 Estate Cuvée, a blend of Syrah, Cabernet and Petit Verdot, is one of his most beloved concoctions.
3. J. Lohr
J. Lohr produces approximately 1.5 million cases of wine every year, which is no small feat. While many of their wines are sold at large retailers, some of the best are only served and sold out of the tasting room itself. Tastings are complimentary, and the winery is dog-friendly! J. Lohr is a great place to kick off wine tours in Paso Robles.
Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture Garden
Where else will you enjoy the art of wine making along actual museum-worthy art? Wrought iron gates welcome you to the grounds. After just a short drive inside the gates, you will begin to see the sculptures that adorn the property. Many artists display their work outside, as well as inside the tasting room. While at Sculpterra, try the Rhone style and Bordeaux blends.
4. Le Cuvier
A picturesque view of rolling hills from an Adirondack chair with a glass of wine in hand sounds like a perfect day, and that’s exactly what is in store at Le Cuvier. Wine tastings and snacks are available for $15, but the fee is waived if you purchase a bottle. After tasting the wine, it’s likely that you’ll earn the discount.
5. Halter Ranch
A new state of the art production center and tasting room, Halter Ranch offers a 45-minute complimentary tour of their vineyards and cave, as well as a $45 three-hour tour of the entire grounds, which includes a tasting of the reserve wines once you reach the top of the property, and a stop at the new winery to learn about the winemaking process and taste any current release wines.
