Paso Robles, also known as wine country here on the Central Coast, has over 200 wineries! That means you could try a new winery every day, Monday through Friday, and it would take you almost an entire year to do. While wine tasting daily can be fun, if you’re simply searching for the best red wine in Paso Robles for the summer – tasting a winery a day just isn’t efficient. Luckily, we’ve got you covered, keep reading for the top 4 local winery favorites for red wine in Paso Robles.

1. Tooth & Nail Winery

Overlooking hills of expansive vineyards, surrounded by a turquoise water moat, sits Tooth & Nail Winery, better known as the Castle of Paso Robles. Here, you’ll discover bold reds and an entire wine tasting flight dedicated to them. Locals of the Central Coast love their Predator wine series which offers a variety of strong, blended reds from Cabernets to Syrahs. And, who doesn’t love wine tasting from the balcony of a castle?
