Paso Robles Recommendations



Just saw Keith’s Dec newsletter touting the Santa Barbara wine region. I will be in Carmel over the new year, and was wondering if you had any recommendations for wineries in the northern Paso Robles region, esp Carmel Valley. Many thanks!

Great question. Paso is a rather large area. Over the past five years, it’s been parcelled up into more manageable sub-regions. Here’s a map:

The places to focus on the NW sector of the region. Adelaide District, Willow Creek, and Templeton Gap are the top regions to focus on. A few favorites in Adelaide District are Tablas Creek, McPrice Myers, and Kukkula. I used to suggest Justin, but the winery was sold and the new owners aren’t cool.

Also, check out TH Estate Wines. The winemaker/owner is Terry Hoage. He played for the Philly Eagles and is a great guy. Saxum is great, but I don’t think they have a tasting room.
