My trip to the Paso Robles on California's Central Coastal region had me feeling like "Miles" (Sideways). Honestly, I was amazed by the regions offerings. I was introduced to big,medium,and small vineyards, and this included something new to me - garagiste wines. There are real differences from one vineyard to the next, impacted by shale in the soil, oak barrel flavors, and a whole lot of other nuances, fruit to vine. It was a wonderful trip.
Thanks to my brother (taking time in between in his wedding) as well as to Annie Gallagher Wilson & David Wilson for a wonderful evening at Grape Encounters. Thanks to Calcareous for a wonderful view, and to Epoch, Ancient Peaks as well as the local wine community. If any of you readers get an opportunity to visit this region, do it! What a treat.
