Who doesn't love a good picnic?!

Just a short drive off the 101 Highway on 46W in the heart of wine alley, Niner Wine Estates is a modern and romantic oasis in Paso Robles. One of the claims to fame the winery has is their heart shaped grouping of oak trees on a hill facing the tasting room. It is the spot of many family and engagement photo shoots and a must do selfie spot on the central coast. It will definitely take your iInstagram game up a notch!
They are known for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wines themselves offer something pretty unique for the Paso Robles region. The cool nights and coastal wind makes for Pinot and Chardonnay that don’t have the fruit and oak bomb of some local wineries. They also have an amazing array of foods you can purchase to consume onsite with your wines. Tastings and winery events are also an amazing thing to experience and offer a little something extra:
“We believe that good people are the key to a memorable experience, so all our events are designed to be interactive and educational. Our Chef might decide to teach you how to shuck fresh oysters during a class; our Winemaker may lead a blending seminar with his favorite barrels; our Vineyard Manager might take you to the top of Heart Hill to geek out about rootstock. Regardless, our goal is to have guests walk away loving this place as much as we do.”
We loved spending an afternoon at the winery tasting their amazing wines, filling up on the delicious spread and walking around the jaw dropping estate. We know if you give it a chance, you will too. Cheers!
