This is Central California’s wine country — featuring farm-to-fork food and a dash of cowboy culture.

The hub of Central California’s wine country, Paso Robles is set amid 200 wineries spread across seven different growing regions, each with its own microclimate and terroir. Scattered among them are craft distilleries, artisan breweries and cider mills. And although it’s best known for its libations, the town offers so much more — including hot springs, upscale restaurants, museums and a robust art scene.

Taste the Region’s Bounty

Soak in hot mineral water, then hang out at hip Tin City, where emerging winemakers show off their talents. If you'd prefer a day without alcohol, sample olive oils instead of wine, visit local museums and then head out at sunset to see Bruce Munro's remarkable light installation, Field of Light at Sensorio.
