Paso Robles is at once one of the most historic and most exciting wine regions in California. With a history of viticulture dating back to the Spanish missions in the late 18th century, through the founding of the town of El Paso de Robles (Pass of the Oak Trees) by Drury James (Outlaw Jesse’s uncle), to the arrival of the Rhone Rangers in the 80’s, to today as California’s fastest growing wine region, Paso has a spirit all its own and wines for every palate.
Everyone who visits Paso Robles remarks that it feels like Sonoma 30 years ago, or Napa 40 years ago – before the corporations and millionaires took over -- because the wine trade is still largely in the hands of the growers who have been working this land, sometimes for over 100 years.
When we think of Paso, we often think of lush red wine, due to the prevalence and history of Zinfandel in the region, but it has so much more to offer.
The varied terroir is home to the greatest selection of Rhone Varietals outside of France -- thanks to the efforts of Tablas Creek importing vine cuttings, absolutely stunningly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with a style all its own, and an increasing number of Italian and Spanish varietals unheard of in other California regions. The diversity of plantings and winemaking styles sets Paso Robles apart not just from other wine regions in California, but wine regions around the world.
Join us as we explore all that Paso has to offer. Bring your outlaw spirit and an open mind, we’ll bring the wine.
