SEVENTEEN wineries on the Highway 46 West Wine Trail!   And, yes, I’ve visited several of them, a few on my first visit to Paso seven years ago (there’s a “love at first sight” story in there somewhere).  In fact, without mentioning any names (okay, Rotta), one of the wineries makes a killer desert wine that the Wineaux Guy and I have enjoyed tremendously.  And (okay, I’m mentioning another name) Peachy Canyon is the first winery that offered an aged Zinfandel that knocked me off of my feet.  This is one of the most expansive wine trails, but once you’re in “the neighborhood,” you don’t have to go far to get from one winery to the next.  In a word, Explore!  You won’t be disappointed, and you may find that your wallet is crying by the end of the wine trail tour.

I enjoyed visiting their site and just had to copy and showcase this first paragraph:

Paso Robles Wine Country is as unique and inviting as the people who have dedicated themselves to nurturing the vineyards and crafting fine wines. Visitors to Highway 46 West find the road less traveled is often marked by the thrill of discovery in this uncongested region.

As they say on the Highway 46 West website, A neighborhood of vineyards with a tradition of hand-crafted wines.
