If you’re a wine enthusiast seeking an unforgettable getaway, Paso Robles should be at the top of your list. Our recent trip to this charming California gem left us with a trove of delightful memories, exquisite wine and unique experiences. From sipping on Grenache, Syrah, Zinfandel and reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (just to name a few), to indulging in the local culinary scene, to visiting the rich sites of Paso Robles, our four-day adventure was nothing short of a wine lover’s dream. In this blog post, we’ll share our Paso Robles journey, complete with wine tastings, vineyard tours, and delectable cuisine. #ItsWineTime! #PasoRoblesStyle! #Cheersing
Our journey began on a picturesque Sunday when we arrived at The Oaks Hotel, which would be our home for the first night. The Oaks Hotel, nestled in the heart of Paso Robles, offered us a comfortable and memorable stay. In fact, we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! As is our tradition on road trips, we booked through the app, Hotel Tonight. It’s a 50/50 proposition when doing that but in this case, we were blessed with an outstanding outcome! We were already off to a fantastic start!
In the late afternoon, we embarked on a delightful wine tasting adventure at the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery. We had the privilege of trying an array of exquisite wines, including San Simeon Viognier, San Simeon Grenache Rosé, San Simeon Chardonnay, Windstream Chardonnay, San Simeon Petite Sirah, Maddalena Cabernet Sauvignon, Opaque Malbec, and Opaque Darkness. Each sip transported us deeper into the world of Paso Robles’ winemaking.
Afterward, we ventured to the Sensorio Light Show, an enchanting display of art and technology that illuminated the Paso Robles night and that Shelley REALLY wanted to do! It didn’t disappoint! The combination of stunning visuals and the peaceful Paso Robles landscape made for a captivating evening.
