5 Must-See Spots In Paso Robles




Paso Robles is a charming little city located 3 hours north of Los Angeles. They’ve recently gained world wide recognition for their award winning wineries, farm to fork restaurants, and adorable boutiques. I’m a huge fan of their humble, yet growing, community. Rumors say it’s only a matter of time till Napa travelers reroute their GPS to Paso Robles.

My husband and I have stayed in Paso Robles on numerous occasions. Its a quick, easy getaway and we always leave feeling rested. The town is also very dog friendly, a huge plus in my book.

If you’re looking for fun wineries, delicious dining, and a luxuriously cozy place to stay…

Here are a few of my favorite gems:

1. Justin Wine: This vineyard offers delicious wines in a stunning setting. We’ve become members here and our friends are always ecstatic when we bring a bottle of Justin to a dinner party.




2. Dauo Vineyards & Winery: Set atop gorgeous mountains, this is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever wine tasted. Even better, their wines are just as enchanting as the view. I highly recommend their Cabernet.

3. Brecon Estate: This winery is relaxed, friendly, and overall just plain beautiful. While laying on their sunny outdoor pillows you can taste each of their unique wines, and even take a nap without feeling judged. Definitely a must-see. 





4. Thomas Hill Organics: This bistro offers a constantly changing menu with farm to fork entrees grown locally, and regional wines. I’ve been here a handful of times and literally rave about every dish I’ve tried. The ambiance is also adorable for a lunch or dinner date.




5. Hotel Cheval: This boutique, luxury hotel is like a little slice of heaven. Twinkle lights, outdoor fountains, fire pits, a beautiful library, and a charming French equestrian inspired bar. A great place to snuggle up with a book, have a cheese platter, or meet local wine makers. If you don’t have a chance to stay here then drinks at the Pony Club are a must, and of course it’s dog friendly.

I also recommend their cafe Haymarket. It’s perfect for breakfast, lunch and grabbing picnic basket goodies. The ambiance is country chic and the food is equally memorable.
