Our last tour was of the Paso Robles Region (halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, aka The Central Coast). The tour lasted 6 ½ days, a total of 8 days with travel, Saturday to Saturday.
The tour's highlights:
The tour was taken by twelve clients (the maximum number of clients on any one trip is 11 with 12 being an exception).
Our itinerary was full of interactions:
We began our tour with lunch at Par3 at Poplar Creek Golf Course in San Mateo on our trip to the wine country from SFO. We visited Hahn winery in Soledad on our journey to Paso Robles.
We visited 15 wineries, both large and small, in addition to representatives from five wineries joining us for dinner. Roughly over 100 wines were tasted by our tour party.
We had a number of amazing culinary experiences, a visit to a cheese shop and an olive oil company, a historic tour of the town of Paso Robles, and an afternoon and evening in the coastal town of Cambria.
For the entire trip, we stayed in one lodging facility, the Oxford Suites, an upscale, modern hotel in the town of Paso Robles.

“What a fabulous trip! The wineries and experiences were unforgettable! Thanks to our fearless tour leaders, we were able to personally blend our own wines, see firsthand how cheese is made, tour beautiful vineyards, and hear the history of the vineyard directly from the owners. The restaurants were top-notch and beautifully complemented the local wines.”
“I can't say enough good things about the Napa/Sonoma tour.... each and every winery was a unique, splendid experience and each and every restaurant was a culinary delight with a flavor and style of its own.I don't think I would change anything. Jean and I both agreed that it was a totally stress-free vacation. You and Dave did a great job taking care of us!”
