The Vina Robles and Robert Hall wineries are next to one another and so make a comfortable one-two visit. Vina Robles is strictly a hospitality center, vast and very gorgeous. The wine production is at another location in Paso Robles. We tasted several wines and found them to be delicious. The prices of the wines range from moderate to expensive and in line with those at other Paso Robles wineries. Our three favorite wines were the Roseum, the Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Petite Syrah.
Robert Hall is a state-of-the-art wine facility. The winery produces 11 varietals of wine-both Rhone and the traditional varietals. Aging of the wines is in barrels, which are aging in their 19,000 square foot cavern system. The Robert Hall Winery is known for its dedication to their estate vineyards and the production of small lots of wine. If you get a chance, take a tour so you can check out the extensive cavern system. To get to Robert Hall, travel on Highway 46 East from Garretson, and you will see the winery on the right.
The saloon setting for a tasting room is quite unusual for a winery but makes for a fun and relaxed atmosphere for wine tasting. The “not so serious” attitude at Tobin James makes it a popular spot for wine tasters of all sorts. Tobin James has a large number of wine varietals. Expect a crowded, fun, and happening wine tasting experience at Tobin James.
Bianchi is a relatively new winery facility, complete with pond and Bocce courts. Bianchi’s new facility includes a state-of-the-art winery and an inspiring hospitality center for tasting the delicious Bianchi wines. The wines are reasonable and delicious, and there are several different varieties on the wine list. Pack your lunch and dine on the patio. Sip a Bianchi wine, and life cannot get much better.
From Bianchi, head back down Highway 46 E. On the right just a few miles before Paso Robles, you will spot the signs for Eberle. Eberle is very popular, especially on weekends. If winemaker Gary Eberle is in the tasting room, you are sure to get a few laughs. He is a character! Visitors love to take the cave tour that takes you through rows of gunite caves. We think the reasonably priced wines made by Eberle are all excellent values. Be sure to try the Steinbeck Syrah and the Syrah Rose. The picnic area is also quite beautiful, overlooking vineyards and rolling hills.
