Visiting Paso Robles wine country

Jump to last reply

Last summer we had a great time for a few days in Napa Valley, but in June of this year we're joining extended family for a few days in a rental beach house in Santa Cruz. We're thinking of doing a side trip for a couple of nights to Paso Robles, then maybe head on down to Santa Barbara and LA and return home from there.

A search here revealed no Paso Robles threads in the last 5 years! Any suggestions? Really good wineries, really good food, really good places to stay? Will we be disappointed trying to compare it to Napa? We don't need really upscale resorts (like many in Napa), but would like something more interesting that just staying at chain motels. Friends stayed in Solvang, and while I sort of like the kitsch, it just doesn't seem like where we'd want to stay.
