A Paso Robles wine was recently awarded the #1 spot in Wine Spectator magazine’s Top 100 Wines of 2010; numerous other awards and accolades have been showered on our distinct and different wines recently, and we’d love to share the fruits of our labor with you this May.
Halfway between the two main California metropolises of Los Angeles and San Francisco is Paso Robles Wine Country. Located along California's famed Central Coast, the Paso Robles winegrape growing region's climate is perfect for the production of award-winning premium wines. A long growing season of warm days and cool evenings give rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavor profiles that translate beautifully in your glass of Paso Robles wine.
Traversing the landscape you will find 26,000 vineyard acres, producing more than 40 winegrape varieties - from Spanish to Italian, Bordeaux to Rhône, including the area's heritage variety Zinfandel. The styles of wine are diverse in this very distinct region. For more information about our distinct and different wine region, go to www.pasowine.com.
