Spotlight on Paso Robles

Have you heard about the Paso Robles wine region in California? While Napa Valley and Sonoma are more well known and have better reputations, this up-and-coming region is one to watch.

Located half-way between San Francisco and Los Angeles in California’s Central Valley, Paso Robles is a region ripe for discovery. To make an analogy with France, if Napa is Bordeaux and Sonoma is Burgundy, then Paso Robles is the Rhône Valley.

 

 

While temperatures may be high, Paso Robles wines are neither cooked nor heavy. This bowl-shaped region benefits from an advantageous topography: During the day, the sun heats the air which then rises and draws in cool Pacific currents, creating a refreshing breeze that drastically lowers temperatures. Paso Robles has the greatest range of temperatures between day and night compared to the rest of California, which results in the long growing season that best supports viticulture as well as grapes with good acidity.

The region received its AVA (American Viticultural Area) appellation in 1983 and since then has enjoyed rapid growth. Paso Robles greets everyone with a warm welcome and a Mediterranean-style atmosphere.
