While waiting for your sunset visit to Sensorio, here are a few ideas to fill your day in Paso Robles.

The Wine of Paso Robles

You will enjoy a taste of local wine while watching the sunset at Sensorio. You will also want to make time to visit the 350+ wineries and tasting rooms in the Paso Robles region.  As you plan your visit, read about our wineries and their response to opening during the COVID crisis.

Perhaps, you will add to your California wine collection during your three-day visit.  Or you may want to pair a tasting flight with local cheese.  With the diversity of local wine, any wine enthusiast will find exploring the many vineyards and wineries a memorable experience.

Agri-Tourism Abounds  

The robust wine industry is not the only agri-tourism draw to the community.  Many of the regional farms are open to the public.  Spend your days exploring local farms and enjoying farm-to-fork cuisine.  You will find everything from BBQ to brunch.   If you are looking for ideas for the best Take-Out in the area, read this popular local blog.  Pick up some local favorites, pack a picnic, and find a place to enjoy the rolling hills of Paso.

Browse farm markets, collect recipes, and purchase locally-made products to take home.  Paso Robles is a foodie’s dream.  You will find farm markets, with artisan products, open four days a week in Paso Robles.  When visiting for the weekend, be sure to check out the Saturday morning market at Templeton Park.

Wine is not the only craft beverage you will find in Paso.  When you visit Sensorio, you will find local craft beer served at our bar from Firestone Walker Brewing Company.  For craft beer fans, it is easy to create a beer tour (or beer and wine tour) of the region.
