Paso Robles Wine Country- Grand Tasting Tour 2016

Paso Robles is located on the California Central Coast, half way between San Francisco and Los Angles. There are 0ver 200 wine producers known for creating quality Bordeaux, Rhone and Italian varietals, and Zinfandels from their 40+ grape varieties.  The setting was the beautiful Oakland Scottish Rite Center, opening onto the lake.  Here are my favorites from the 26 wineries and over 120 wines featured.
