Paso Robles Trip

A little while ago we made another trip to Paso Robles. This one didn't involve our parents though so we decided to hit a couple more vineyards and also a brewery! The 4 of us had a great time and experienced some new wines and vineyards.

The Firestone Brewery is one of Parish and Adam's favorite local brews here in CA. They have a Double Barrel Ale that is simply amazing!

I was particularly excited that we took the time out of our busy day of vineyard grazing to stop at a pizzeria and watch the OU game! They had a good win and I was excited about the gelato as a prize for the OU win!

Josie and I were amazed at how many barrels were located in the cave at the Eberle vineyard. This cave cost $2 million dollars and holds an incredible amount of wine! There is also a ballroom in cave available for ceremonies and receptions, as well as a low key room for individuals with membership where you are given complimentary wine and cheese along with any music you prefer! One guest per member. :)

This is where all the magic happens. Adam was amazed at how much stainless beauty was in this room.

This truck was one of the many awkward, but artistic pieces on the grounds of Eberle.

Adam's parents and grandparents are huge fans of the Arkansas Razorbacks, and this statue excited Adam so that he could show his parents. Pretty neat art work too.

This stop was one of our favorites. Tobin James is by far the most hospitable and free flowing vineyards to visit. This place alone is reason enough to travel to Paso Robles.

We had a great time the entire day. There were many places not mentioned that we visited, and they were all fun. We can't wait for our next trip in the spring to take some visitors to Eberle and enjoy the benefits of a membership.
