My husband and I are taking a quick wine tasting trip up to Paso Robles this weekend and were wondering if any of you had recommendations on must-visit wineries. We tend to like smaller wineries that are often off the beat and path or appointment only. We tend to enjoy wines that are dryer, food friendly (my husband is a chef), and more European in style. I know that Paso has some great Zinfandel, but we we tend to steer away from any Zin-centric wineries, since for our personal tastes, we are not huge Zin drinkers.
That being said, we are open to any style, as long as it's made well and tastes good. Some of our absolute favorite wineries in California include Demetria Estate Winery (Los Olivos), Harrison Clarke (Solvang), and Unti (Healdsburg).
Any recommendations you have are much appreciated!!
