.Justin Vineyards and Winery

Heading to Paso Robles anytime soon? Then stop at Justin Vineyards & Winery for a tasting of their beautiful wines. The 2022 Rosé ($20), made of mostly Syrah grapes, is dry, aromatic and refreshing—perfect for a summer’s day. It has a lovely salmon color in the glass with notes of Bing cherry, ripe strawberry and with a crisp finish. It comes with a handy-to-open screw cap.

There’s a lot to see and do on the Justin estate. Not only is the setting spectacular, but you can also stay there in world-class accommodations. And their Michelin-starred restaurant showcases the freshest seasonal ingredients sourced from Justin’s on-site garden and from local purveyors.
