Calcareous Vineyard | Paso Robles, CA

We hadn't been to Calcareous in a few years and decided to stop for a tasting during our last visit to the area. Perched up on a hill overlooking Paso Robles, I remembered Calcareous being really beautiful with picture-perfect views.

Per Cazo Cellars | Paso Robles, CA

During my last visit to Paso Robles, I had one of my most unique wine tasting experiences to date. While researching wineries in the area to check out, I came across a review on Per Cazo Cellars. This person had great things to say about it and I really knew nothing about the place so [...]

During the last weekend in February, I had the honor of attending L'Aventure Winery's unveiling of the 2008 vintage. I joined Club L'Aventure last year on my birthday and have developed such a passion for these wines, I was waiting to taste the new vintage like a little kid waiting for Santa to arrive. I [...]
