A Few Photos from Paso Robles

I am out in California for the Wine Bloggers Conference and currently on the pre-conference excursion to Paso Robles. Yesterday, we started at Niner Wine Estates, then headed to Tablas Creek, and finished with dinner at beautiful Daou Vineyards. I would love to tell you about the wines we tasted, but there were so many, taking notes quickly became futile. So instead, here are a few photos:

This is my first trip to Paso and I will certainly be back.

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  2. There is actually a wine bloggers conference? Really? I need to come up with a conference in a really great location for bloggers who just ramble on and on…like myself.

    We alternate vacations between Paso and Napa/Sonoma. Chateau Margene is our favorite in Paso Robles but I could name so many we like. It’s a much more laid back atmosphere there.

  5. Love Paso! It’s a toss up between Paso and and Sonoma for my fave wine regions so far for me…TCV is a favorite of course, but there are so many wineries there now. We’ve traveled to Paso annually for the last 4 years (although this year isn’t looking good:-(

    Enjoy WBC…I’ve got try to make it next year!

  8. So glad you loved Paso! It is a beautiful area and has so many great wineries. (We may be a little prejudice though). Isnt Daou just breathtaking? Did you taste the Cab Franc Reserve 1740? Phenomenal wine!
