Located roughly 24 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, Paso Robles’ gorgeous rolling hills are the ideal location to cultivate several grape varieties. Due to its dry hot summers and late autumn season, the region specializes in producing high quality Zinfandels in addition to many Rhone and Bordeaux varietals.
Named by Wine Enthusiast as the 2013 Wine Region of the Year, Paso Robles has become an attraction for those seeking an adventurous day in an area many winos fondly refer to as the “Wild West of Wine.” With more than 180 wineries and growing, the unique blends accompanied by unconventional winemaking techniques have paved the way for a new scope of consumers eager to taste the bright and delicious future of this truly remarkable appellation.
