But don’t make the mistake of assuming that wine tasting in Paso Robles is the only option for booze loving tourists. Even my know-it-all local husband was shocked to discover that there’s so much more than just wineries in Paso Robles! There’s also a plethora of Paso Robles distilleries, serving up spirits related to wine – such as grappa, vodka and brandy, all made from wine grapes – craft distilled side by side with Rhone varietal grapes like Syrah or classic California stars like Zinfandel.
