I will remember the day we spent among the vines of Paso Robles as one of the most peaceful, relaxing and happy I have had in a long time.
There was something soothing in geometric rows of grapes stretching all the way to the horizon (and beyond)...,
...and in the stillness of the air filled with the fragrance of lavender.
Most wineries in Paso Robles are small, and the wine is not cheap, but what we have sampled was very good, and the view of never-ending gentle hills was in itself worth spending money on. Winery buildings too have their own unique character, ranging from simple rustic houses....
... to almost space-age modernistic structures, airy and graceful, and still with a beautiful view.
There were lots of shady picnic areas where we could sit and rest our sore feet...
...and we got some delicious wine to take home with us too.
What else could one wish for?
