Central Coast: Paso Robles vs. Santa Barbara

Paso Robles, CA
Less than 20 years ago, Paso Robles had a mere 30 wineries. Today, more than 200 are serving up an unusual diversity of wines that stand tall with the world's best, in tasting rooms that run from cottage quaint to high-style sleek (and all lacking pretension). On the must-try list? Cypher's Grenache Blanc, a rich white Rhône from Daou, Petite Sirah at Clayhouse, and one of the masterful red blends at L'Aventure.
