Eberle Winery is a pioneer of Paso Robles. Gary Eberle founded the estate more than 40 years ago, and today it is one of the highest award-winning wineries in the U.S. That same Gary Eberle is also responsible for transplanting cuttings from Chapoutier vineyards in Hermitage, France to create the Estrella Clone. This iconic winery is a must-visit in Paso Robles. It offers wine by the glass, a scenic picnic deck that overlooks Paso Robles, a bocce ball court, cornhole, complimentary tastings, and cave tours. But, the most important reason to visit this winery? They love their four-legged friends, and always welcome them! At Peachy Canyon Winery, class is in session every day! This historic tasting room is found inside the Old Bethel Schoolhouse — circa 1886. Come get schooled in their award-winning Zinfandels, and study their amazing selection of handcrafted, small batch Rhone & Bordeaux varietals you can’t get anywhere else.
If California wineries sometimes seem to pretend they are in, say, Tuscany rather than Temecula, Tobin James aims to set the geography straight. The winery and tasting room, on the site of a former stage-coach stop (the guest house dates from that era), embraces the Wild West — the wine club here is even called the James Gang. The blades of an old-time water pump spin above the buildings, and the tasting room is done up saloon-style, with age-polished wood and a brass foot rail. Reservations are required for the $20 tastings, which can be booked daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
The Parrish Family Vineyard is home to a ridiculously delicious BLT that I can’t stop dreaming about. Yes, yes, I know we’re here for the wine. But, I’ve just never had anything like this! Candied bacon, creamy garlic aioli, homemade Cabernet Sauvignon sourdough bread… my mouth waters just thinking about it! Their wine, of course, is outstanding. With a storied history that begins with trellising vineyards throughout famous wine regions (including for Napa’s Robert Mondavi), winemaker/owner David Parrish crafts beautiful, food-friendly wines that are representative of the Paso Robles region. Their tasting room is affectionately known as “the ranch house” — it’s modeled after David Parrish’s own home. When you’re there, they want you to feel like you’re home, like family. I have to say… next time I’m down there, I’ll definitely be headed back to Parrish! Sitting on their patio, surrounded by vineyards, was lovely all around.
This sprawling property, with more than 700 acres of vines planted to a range of grapes, was originally known as Rancho Tierra Rejada (Land of the Worked Earth). The work on their earth is evident in the stunning range of wines, including Tannat, sparkling Albariño, Nero d’Avola, Vermentino, and more. The tasting room is open daily from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., and the on-site La Cucina Restaurant is a great option for an even more robust experience.
If you’re just looking for a simple, classic wine tasting experience, you can certainly find that here at Halter Ranch Vineyard, but why settle for ordinary when you could have an adventure? The Defender Picnic & Pairing Tour lets guests encounter the extraordinary biodiversity across our 2,700-acre wild estate, and learn more about the estate’s organic farming and viticulture practices while sipping wines amidst breathtaking scenery. It’ll be a small intimate experience — since they can only squeeze six guests into the classic Land Rover Defender — but this in depth wine tasting experience will give you a behind the scenes look you won’t soon forget!
