    These are some of my favorite places on the Westside of Paso Roble. First check out Summerwood Winery and Inn (I'll take those bonus points now) a boutique winery with a beautiful Inn set amongst the vineyards right across the street. The 2012 Grenache Blanc and the 2010 Diosa Red Rhone blend are killer and the breakfast at the Inn can't be beat. Just down the lane you'll find Terry Hoage Vineyards and L'Aventure Winery both getting great scores and making killer wine. Terry Hoage played 13 years in the NFL and has put the same dedication in to his wines. Stefan Asseo is a transplant from Bordeaux who moved to Paso Robles to start his winey so he could make unique blends that the French would frown upon. Torrin Vineyard owned by Scott and Viquel Hawley is a great choice if you like Rhone wines but call ahead as they sell out fast. A little further off the beaten path is Halter Ranch Vineyard (more bonus points please). This is a beautiful property and the wines are great. Villicana Winery and Alta Colina currently share a space while Alta Colina builds their winery and tasting room and both make a variety of great wines. Don't miss the Baja Colina and the Villicana Mouvedre. Bonus score here is that Alex Villicana also operates re:find out of the same location. ReFind is a craft distillery that many of our local restaurants has picked up for their special cocktails. After all of this wine tasting undoubtedly you are going to need a beer. Firestone Walker Brewing Company opened the Taproom last year and you can grab some great pub food (wine country style) and a cold DBA (Double Barrel Ale) and call it a day.

    I would add Eberle Winery winery to Shayne's stellar list.

    While not in Paso Robles, I personally love the wine country around Los Olivos . There is a great string of scenic/cool wineries off the 101 (or if you take the San Marcos Pass Road/highway 154 from Santa Barbara it is on your way). Start with Firestone Vineyard (which is a big winery, but has amazing views from outside the tasting room), then continue on to Foxen Vineyard which is kind of a shack on the side of the road that has amazing wines and an awesome setting. Then continue on to Rancho Sisquoc Winery before heading back to the 101 for the drive up to Paso Robles. There are more wineries along the road, but those all have beautiful settings and the last two have great character. the road itself they are along is a gorgeous drive too.

    The town of Los Olivos itself is extremely charming and has some nice places to eat... Los Olivos Wine Merchant Cafe or Petros for high end, or Panino for great, casual sandwiches or R Country Market for tri tip sandwiches on weekends.
