I’m wrapping up my Paso Coverage by featuring one of my favorite wineries from our recent trip: Adelaida Paso Robles.
Adelaida’s winery is located in the Adelaida District and was actually established before the AVA. We had such an awesome experience at Adelaida, and I’ve already sent several friends there who were looking for Paso Robles wine country recs. It was one of our favorite stops during our Paso Robles trip.
The tasting room is located on a beautiful ranch, where they have not only their vineyards but also their walnut trees. Adelaida offers several different types of tastings including a classic and a library tasting. But my recommendation would be to go for their private hilltop tasting! During the hilltop tasting, you’ll be seated up at the highest point in Paso, overlooking beautiful golden hills and awesome views, while you taste wines under oak trees. It is such a beautiful place and a wonderful way to enjoy their wines.
Since we live in San Francisco, we get poured a lot of pinot noir when we go wine tasting in Sonoma. But I’m more of a big, fruity red kinda girl, and I loved Adelaida’s zin. Between that and their cab franc, I was a very happy camper sitting up at that hilltop.
Adelaida’s tasting room is open daily, and their hilltop tasting is available every day except for Saturdays. I’d highly recommend booking the hilltop tasting for an hour or two before sunset, so you can watch the sun go down over the hills with a glass of zin in hand. You can also check out their website to see if they have any special events coming up. And if you’re thinking about joining their wine club, you can check out the deets here.
