Enjoying Paso Robles

Many people pass through Paso Robles on their way to or from someplace else. However, it’s truly a unique destination on its own. Located between Los Angeles and San Francisco amid the rolling hills of Central California’s exquisite wine country, Paso Robles offers a respite from the hustle and bustle with world-class wineries, restaurants, farmers’ markets, art installations, musical events, and more.

Celebrate the harvest

Visit the lovely Niner Wine Estates along scenic Highway 46, which stretches east to west from Highway 101 to the central coast. Enjoy a spectacular sunset dinner during the summer and fall. Sample some of your favorite varieties at Epoch Estate Wines, which includes Paderewski, Catapult, and York Mountain vineyards. Check out their charmingly

refurbished 1898 farmhouse and barn that “rival the best in Texas.” Owners Bill and Liz Armstrong carefully restored the structures of this historic property, formerly known as the Ascension Winery. Crafted in 1882 by Andrew York, it was the first bonded winery along California’s marvelous coast.

Illuminate your senses

Visit Sensorio, created by world-renowned artist Bruce Munro. Take a self-guided tour through the spectacular 15-acre field of lights. Walk amid thousands of color-changing spheres and wine bottles honoring the exquisite vineyards of Paso Robles.
