Paso Robles | Wine Country for Millennials

At the end of February, I had the pleasure of adventuring to Paso Robles, California, with a wonderful group of bloggers to experience wine country. Now, when I say “wine country” you’re probably thinking that I’m talking about Napa. Napa appeals to a much different group of people than I will ever identify with. But I’ve always loved the idea of visiting wineries and enjoying a break from city life. So when the opportunity to take this trip presented itself, I was SO THERE.

I woke up our first morning there to an absolutely stunning sunrise over sprawling fields of vines and olive trees.

The sun gave an amazing shot this morning! 💕☀️

I padded downstairs, one of only two awake that early, and made coffee. This was the perfect time to wander around and explore the house we were staying in, The Gables at the Rockin’ K. This home was absolutely stunning and, thanks to Paso Robles Vacation Rentals, we were able to experience this wonderful property.

What happens when you get a house full of bloggers together who are about to go on an epic adventure? They take outfit photos, of course!

Our first stop? The tasting room of Gary Kramer Guitar Cellar, the same Gary Kramer of guitar fame AND the owner of The Gables. With delicious wine, a fantastic tasting room, and guitars surrounding us, we definitely started this trip out on a rockin note.

We had a wonderful lunch, sampled some wine, and then grabbed our glasses and headed out into the vineyards to explore.

I wasn’t kidding. There were dogs EVERYWHERE.

We ventured some more, took a moment to take some photos inside the storage room with the barrels, and made our way back to the car for winery number 3 for the day.

Halter Ranch was tons of fun. Golden hour graced us as we drove across the bridge (thinking “ooh, we need to take photos there later!”) and we made our way in only to head right back outside for a tour of the wine making space. And the caves.

Over time, it is more cost effective to store wine in caves rather than in temperature controlled rooms. And how cool is it to say you have wine caves? They’re so beautiful and, honestly, smell amazing.

Back in daylight, we paused for some group photos, tastes even more wine, and made our way home for the night. Laden with wine and some very happy hearts, we were ready to settle in for the night.
