Paso Robles Wines
Paso Robles' climate is perfect for bold and rich red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, but there's so much more! Let's explore the wines worth drinking.
California loves Cabernet, which is why Cabernet Sauvignon represents the largest vineyard area in Paso Robles. All told, you'll find 60 wine varieties and over 40,000 acres planted–it's nearly the same size as Napa Valley!
What wine is Paso Robles known for?
Cabernet Sauvignon may be the most planted grape, but you'll find that people who collect these wines are also fond of Syrah and GSM Blends (Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre). For white wines, you cannot miss Viognier.
Cabernet Sauvignon – You'll be surprised by the bold fruit flavors and intensity of color in a glass of quality Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon.
Syrah – Some of Paso Robles’ highest-rated and most-collected wines include single-varietal Syrah.
GSM Blends – Paso Robles popularized the Rhône-inspired winemaker's blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre in the United States.
Viognier – Rich, peachy, floral, and citrus notes waft off a glass of Paso Robles Viognier. This region champions this rarer white variety – a chameleon, much like Chardonnay.
