Paso Robles: Spearhead Coffee

Annie here…As much as I love drinking wine, I also really enjoy me some good coffee now and then…or every morning, more like it! There’s a new coffee joint in town and it took me a while to get down there, but I finally did and was most definitely NOT disappointed. This place was super cool…and by cool I mean, the kind of place you want to go and stay a while, hang out, enjoy yourself and your coffee and just bask in the goodness of the much lauded vice we all know and love: caffeine.

Paso Robles Wine: Pianetta Winery

One of the many tasting rooms located in the beautiful downtown of Paso Robles, Pianetta Winery was started in 2002 by John Pianetta and his daughter, Caitlin. However, John began growing grapes on his property a few miles north of Paso Robles roughly 20 years ago. So, don’t call it a comeback, they’ve been here for years. See what I did there? Read more…

Where to Eat in Paso Robles: Villa Creek Restaurant

We recently put up a blog post about how there have been some changes at Villa Creek Restaurant in downtown Paso Robles. The most significant change is that they are now open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4pm (although a little birdie tells me they are open at 11:30am) and dinner is Tuesday through Saturday 4pm to 10pm.

Paso Robles Events: Wine 4 Paws

Wine 4 Paws, this is one of those local Paso Robles events that goes to benefit much more than the wine drinking public. It goes to benefit our four legged friends at Woods Humane Society in San Luis Obispo. As you may know, I am a sucker for wine events that go to help something. Otherwise it’s just a bunch of adults standing around getting drunk for no apparent reason. Read more…

Paso Robles Wine: Asuncion Ridge Vineyards

One of the things that I feel Annie have failed to do in the last couple of years is really take advantage of the wine tasting rooms that are right in the middle of downtown Paso Robles. Typically when we go downtown it’s to take Sammy to the park or to go to dinner on a date night. This, my friends, will change and in fact already has. Read more…

Where to Eat in Templeton: 15 Degrees C Wine Shop & Bar

15 Degrees C Wine Shop & Bar, otherwise known as “15” or “15C”, is right on the main drag in downtown Templeton. It’s a great spot in the North County of San Luis Obispo due to its location close to Hwy. 101, the quaint downtown of Templeton, it’s modern interior feel, the food, the people, and of course their wine and beer list is pretty epic.

Paso Robles (actually Templeton) Wine: Bella Luna Winery

I feel like we’ve been back on the wine trail more than normal. Thank 8lb baby Jesus for babysitters. I must say though, I hate saying “babysitter” because the people that watch Sammy are our friends. Okay, now back to the wine drinking at hand. Bella Luna Winery…we haven’t been there for several years, at least so it was time to go back. Read more…

Paso Robles (actually Templeton) Wine: Wild Horse Winery

Although Wild Horse Winery is technically in Templeton, it is part of the general idea of the “Paso Robles wine scene”…which is why I used Paso and Templeton in the title. Read more…

New Winemakers at Hearst Ranch Winery

I thought this was pretty newsworthy as I went through my morning routine of searching through content online. Hearst Ranch Winery brought in a new winemaker as well as a consultant. That’s not necessarily the newsworthy part but what is, in my opinion, is who these folks are. Read more…

Paso Robles Wine: Four Lanterns Winery

A couple of weekends ago Annie and I went to two wineries. One was Pelletiere Estate Vineyard which I wrote about here and the other was Four Lanterns http://www.fourlanternswinery.com/. We chose these two for two reasons, 1) we had not been to either before and 2) our friend Amy Butler is the winemaker at both. Read more…
