Dog Friendly Wineries in Paso Robles – Part 2

In my ongoing quest to have our dog with us on most – if not all – of our wine tasting adventures, I’ve uncovered more incredible, dog-friendly wineries in Paso Robles. As a rule of thumb when tasting with dogs, always bring a leash, make sure the dogs remain well-behaved, and remember to be respectful of other tasters.

Below is a list of some of my recent favorite dog-friendly spots…

Alta Colina

Edward Sellers Vineyards & Wines – *CLOSED*

I’ve wanted to try Edward Sellers’ wines for years. It was always on my list, however because the tasting room was located in downtown Paso Robles, it usually ended up at the bottom as a last place to visit before dinner. Unfortunately after a day of wine tasting outside of town, we usually skipped more wine and focused on food.

Now Edward Sellers Vineyards & Wines has a gorgeous tasting room on the Westside of Paso and during my last visit, I made it the first stop of the day.

Driving down Highway 46 West, it’s easy to miss the entrance to Edward Sellers. Although the tasting room is not far off the highway, once you turn down the unpaved drive and head onto the vine-covered grounds of the winery, you feel miles away from everything.

The tasting room at Edward Sellers is modern, yet it fits in perfectly with the natural beauty around it. There is plenty of sunny outside seating that overlooks the acres of vineyards. We got out of our car and were greeted by two friendly winery dogs who quickly made friends with our dog, Booker.

After soaking up some sunshine, we headed inside – Booker included – to try some wine. The inside of the Edward Sellers tasting room is just as lovely as the outside with dark stone floors, a bright green accent wall, and big window behind the bar that allows you to peek inside the barrel room.

Our tasting included two whites followed by a series of reds. Similar to other wineries in Paso Robles, Edward Sellers specializes in hand crafted American Rhone style wines. However, what I think sets them apart is the fact that most of Edward Sellers’ wines were perfectly balanced and surprisingly food-friendly. They had the classic, big Paso Rhone style that I love without being too big and bold to complement a meal.

All the wines we tried were consistently good which made it difficult to pick our favorites. We decided to leave with a couple of bottles of 2011 Grenache Rose – a juicy, strawberry-filled rose that is perfect for summer. We also took home a bottle of 2007 Vertigo (71% Grenache, 16% Mourvèdre & 13% Syrah) which was slightly tart with a nice hint of smoke.

I’m so glad we finally tried Edward Sellers. It is one of our new favorites and will be a regular stop on our visits to Paso Robles.
