Affordable world class wine vacation in Paso Robles

Sophisticated travelers (like us) longing to experience a luxurious wine country vacation in a stunning, unspoiled slice of California will find Paso Robles to be a great getaway. The area offers all of the amenities of other well-known California wine regions, yet with approachable small town feel with a northern California sophistication. Located in the Santa Lucia Mountains of Central California midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Paso Robles is California’s fastest growing wine region with 200+ vintners boasting many select renowned boutique winemakers producing highly coveted wines such as Tablas Creek, Denner Vineyards, Daou, Justin, Vina Robles, L’Aventure and Saxum. Epicureans will find that the cuisine rivals that of large cosmopolitan cities yet with a relaxed, local style.

Not-to-be-missed restaurants such as Enoteca, Villa Creek, Bistro Laurent, Artisan, Buona Tavola, Thomas Hill Organics and il cortile are creating innovative farm-fresh cuisine that pairs wonderfully with the robust local wines. Hotel Cheval, Allegretto Resort, Paso Robles Inn and La Bellasera provide ideal retreats with refined amenities such as fireplaces, sumptuous beds and soaking tubs. Wallet-Friendly Paso Robles is the ideal affordable California wine country region and boasts a wide selection of hotels with reasonably priced, comfortable accommodations such as Adelaide Inn, Black Oak Motor Lodge, La Quinta Inn & Suites and Courtyard by Marriott. River Oak Hot springs offers a variety of spa treatments incorporating the on-site mineral spring waters. Champion golf courses, upscale boutique shopping, artisan food stores such as We Olive, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Vivant Fine Cheese and one-of-a-kind cultural attractions such as Hearst Castle State Park and historic Mission San Miguel de Arcangel provide the ultimate, well-rounded, upscale yet relaxed escape.
Delicious meals can be enjoyed for a fraction of the cost at spots such as Basil Thai, Odyssey World Cafe and El Vino Mexican Restaurant. There are many free and low cost activities to be enjoyed including hiking and biking on pristine trails and picnicking on the charming downtown square. Don't miss the concerts in the beautiful park. Most of the wineries charge low tasting fees (around $10) and will credit towards a bottle purchase. Affordable yet fantastic wine can be found for under $35 per bottle. Parking is easy and free throughout the area. Plan your trip now through Travel Paso and be prepared to fall in love.

Happy Tasting Adventures,
