Food and Wine Weekend Getaway in Paso Robles
Paso Robles may not be the first place Californians think of when planning a trip to wine country, but that's what makes it such a refreshing surprise. In place of Napa's celebrity-anchored restaurants and pricey boutiques, Paso is filled with funky art studios and cowboy bars — plus a bumper crop of top-notch (but totally unstuffy) tasting rooms. In fact, this decidedly low-key area is the fastest-growing American Viticultural Area (AVA) in California, boasting a more than five-fold increase over the past decade from 35 to over 200 bonded wineries. And the wines here are no joke: more than a dozen producers now lay claim to prestigious ratings of 95 points of higher in the country's leading wine publications. For a wine-soaked weekend itinerary, these are our favorite spots to indulge, both in town and around the region. – By Erica Duecy
