campy sd

Thanks ed! That was awesome.


What a great post! We passed briefly through Paso Robles a few weeks ago during a Central Coast road trip. Although we didn't go to any wineries, this post will definitely come in handy for a future visit. In downtown Paso Robles, we saw the statue of Ignacy Paderewsky in front of the old brick library in the park square.

While watching local news during our trip, I noticed that the news anchors pronounced the "Robles" part of Paso Robles, as "roe-buls" not the Spanish pronunciation (Ro-blays). Interesting.


Wonderful, epic post. Great photos. Thank you for such great information and inspiration to try more places.

Thanks, campy. I appreciate. I wasn't sure sthat anybody would be interested.

yeh, cc, the pronunciation Robles is not spanish. Kindof like Nevada that way. But Paso is pretty close. This post wasn't so much a recommendation of these places - though all were good - as it was a recommendation of the process of tasting. We could have structured to tasting to focus on less expensive wines or on old favorites. There are literally dozens of good tasting opportunities in Paso. That little park in downtown PR is very nice and most of the good restaurants in town are within a couple blocks of the park.

Thanks, Cathy, I just posted the pics that turned out well and let them tell the story.


I really enjoy that part of the state.

The next time you take a trip to the Monterey area, check out the winery my brother works at, DeRose Vineyards. It is small and a bit out of the way in Cienega Valley near Hollister. It also has a very interesting geologic feature:

Interesting jan. I have tasted around Gilroy, but not around Hollister. I will forward this info to Steve and Helen, who might be able to get there before I am back in the area.

Thank you for sharing your adventure Ed. These places look like they are definitely worth a visit.
