Re: Suggestions needed for Paso Robles Wineries

When we visited two years ago, we stopped at Tin City. We liked Jacob Toft. I think now there are craft beers, restaurants, more wineries. Kind of an industrial feel where you park and walk around. Other favorites are Linne Calodo and Oso Libre. Second Clos Solene and Daou.

Re: new carlisle offer cab and pinot!

I wished 2 and 2. I'm a fan of Martaella Vyd pinots (from Benovia) so will be nice to compare. Also love old-world cabs. Hopefully my "ticket" will be picked!!

Cheese Secrets next to the Olde Angel Inn has a great selection of cheeses. If you have nice weather, I'd start there, hit a bakery for bread, a wine shop for a local riesling and head down to the park by the Niagara River. This is a great idea! Something we always do when visiting Napa/Sonoma. Tha...
