Tasting Rooms in Paso Robles
Arroyo Robles Winery
Arroyo Robles is another fine example of a small family owned winery operating in Paso Robles. The family has estate acres of vineyards in the Paso Robles area and expects to have their winery in operation in 2007. At the moment, they process their wine in other facitlities but have this delightful and beautifully designed tasting room open to the public. It is at 1317 Park St.
Located in the historic Paso Robles train station at the end of the downtown area. The train station has been restored for retail use. Here we find the Anglim Winery tasting room. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of these wines. Anglim is run by Steve and Steffanie Anglim. Steve is the winemaker and Steffanie tends to the tasting room and winery operations. The focus is on Rhone varietals plus a few other varietals. These wines are excellent and we especially enjoyed theViognier, Petite Sirah, and a very dry Rosé.
Vinoteca Wine Bar
Vinoteca Wine Bar was the first wine bar in Paso Robles and also in the county of San Luis Obispo. The wine bar opened in 2001 and has been going strong ever since. Vinoteca has an excellent selection of local wines by the glass and also a flight menu of wines. The place is very cozy and a popular spot around the cocktail hour. On Wednesdays, Vinoteca invites a local winemaker to pour and talk about their wines. Hors d’oeuvres
