They have been making wine in Paso Robles for quite some time. However, just in the past several years have the area started to produce some really good wines. The town still feels more working rural than say the rich rural one feels in Napa or Sonoma. We visited several wineries over a long weekend including Tobin James, Opolo, Rotta and Kenneth Volk. We enjoyed many of the wines, but there were more than few that I could have done without. But that is the fun of wine tasting. During our two and a half day stay we probably visited eight wineries. We missed visiting over 100.
After a beautiful drive through Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez, we stopped by the Tobin James Tasting room to start. This is a party atmosphere tasting room and we were double rewarded with tastings of some really good wines. You felt like you were in an old West saloon.
There are many wineries in Paso, and there is a great deal of experimentation, mixing wines of different kinds to create something interesting and tasty. Sometimes we felt the vinters were trying a little too much on mixing as the results were odd at best.
Nice size rooms, almost a suite. 2 large flatscreen TV's, nice facilities, plus a pool and a workout room. Located right... more travel advice
