How To: Wine and Cheese Party

Since living in Paso Robles, I have discovered there is one thing most all locals, transplants, and visitors have in common: an astounding love for wine and food. Paso has over 200 wineries, each to be celebrated for fantastic wines, differing philosophies in wine making, and distinct guest experiences. Yet, people fly clear across the country to visit Paso Robles for more than the copious wineries. Wine Country called Paso Robles "a foodie wonderland," where every local eatery "celebrate[s] their location" with fresh, local offerings.
