Located in San Luis Obispo County, Paso Robles Wine Country is a wine lovers dream.

At approximately 614,000 acres, the wine region is home to over 200 wineries, many with tasting rooms on their properties for you to enjoy and explore their latest varietals, all crafted here on California’s Central Coast.


Officially known as the Paso Robles American Viticulture Area (or AVA), the region was established in 1983, and is by far the largest of the four official AVAs in SLO County. By comparison, the Paso Robles AVA is almost three times the size of Napa Valley’s AVA, spanning from San Miguel in the north to Santa Margarita in the south, and from Shandon in the east to the Santa Lucia Mountains in the west.

The Paso Robles AVA was the largest singe AVA in California until 2014, when plans were approved to divide the region into 11 sub-districts:

Each district within Paso Robles’s wine country has their own unique terroir profile, which allows the region to produce and craft over 40 varietals from Zinfandel, Viognier, Roussanne, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

TERROIR PROFILE

The Paso Robles AVA is only separated from the Pacific Ocean by a single mountain range, but it is those mountains that define the climate for the region.

The Santa Lucia Mountains not only protect the vineyards in Paso Robles’ Wine Country against major coastal weather fluctuations, they also allows cool air to flow through the gaps between its hills.

Although all of the vineyards in Paso’s Wine Country experience warm days and cool nights, the various districts see differences in highs and lows (and rainfall) given their geographic location within in the AVA.

The Santa Margarita Ranch District, for example, sees an average of 3.74″ of rain per year, and highs in the low 80s during their growing season. The Highlands District, by contrast, only sees 1.89″ of rain during their growing season, and highs easily in the high 80s to low 90s.

Below is a simple terroir snapshot for the entire Paso Robles AVA, but make sure to visit the individual districts to learn more about the nuances of Paso Robles Wine Country, and how to visit the wineries so you can taste and explore the differences for yourself.
