While we often travel to Paso Robles to enjoy the scenery, this Thanksgiving was exceptional. The hills were aglow with the autumnal red, gold and copper tones of the leaves on both the trees and grape vines. This is one of the few bounties of the long, dry and hot summer that seemed to never end here in California.
While we are somewhat familiar with the area it never hurts to keep current with new wineries and restaurants. Our favorite source for local information is the paso robles wineries website (http://pasorobleswineries.net) . A visit to this informative site will provide you with all you need to know to enjoy wine tasting in Paso Robles and the surrounding areas. They will even provide you with a helpful map.
And when you have had your fill of delicious wines, they offer plenty of suggestions for other enjoyable activities available in the area. This is how we found Hammersky Vineyards (I am very partial to their voigner and Martin is a fan of their cabernet; rare for us both to be pleased by the same winery). The tasting room is located on Vineyard which,to those who haven't ventured that far, is a beautiful meandering road bordered by mature oaks that act as landmarks to the rolling acres of vines. We ventured off Vineyard and took Jack Creek road so that we could enjoy a quiet hike with Iris.
We are always inspired by the beauty of this countryside. So much so that we created our Grapevine collection of custom hardware that includes interior and exterior door levers, knobs and cabinety pulls.
