The Vineyards of Paso Robles, Ca

There are 110 established vineyards in the area.  We had to narrow our tasting to a section called west loop.This tour takes about half a day, as long as you do not stay in a tasting room too long.  The first stop was Mt. Olive about 15 min outside of town.  It is well-revered for its organic produce and olives..oh, this is also known as olive country as if wine was not enough.  Sadly, it is only opened Thurs through Sunday for tasting...and this was Wednesday.  Ahhh..but many more to pick from..

What beautiful countryside we rode through between wineries...

This was our favorite.

Their wine cellar...loved the interior of this tasting room.

Their vineyard; the vines are just starting to sprout leaves.  This vineyard also was well known for their walnuts...yes, besides wine, olives, olive oil, walnuts...They sell the majority of their walnuts to Blue Diamond.

This is the road we drove down between the wineries. 

Even caught this amazing bird in flight...never have seen one like this.You have to click to enlarge it to grasp the beautiful markings on this bird.

So, being in Olive country, we popped into an olive oil tasting.  Yummmmmm. Spent some bucks here.  Never realized the differences in some olive oil.
