An extremely prolific wine-producing area, Paso offers its own micro-regions and the most variety of venue choices.
The Northern Stars Wine Trail (San Miguel)
- Silver Horse Winery – Perched on a hilltop overlooking acres of grapevines, this new facility boasts a huge lawn, custom-made for a garden wedding. Patios invite guests to drink in the valley view along with their wine, and bocce ball courts are a fun addition to your social hour or rehearsal dinner. Designed with events in mind, the winery building has adjustable walls that can connect the outdoors to the stylish interior spaces. Spacious, flexible and gorgeous, Silver Horse is a gracious host for any celebration.
East 46 Trail
- Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room – The new Bianchi Winery commands a view of undulating vineyards dotted with ancient oaks. A combination winery and state-of-the-art event facility, Bianchi’s architecture blends Old World charm with modern accents. Weddings congregate on a manicured lawn with a semi-circular redwood gazebo. The winery’s centerpiece is its waterfall-fed lake—serene, refreshing and brimming with koi. A lakeside deck hosts social hours and after-dinner dancing, while the swanky Tasting Room and a tented meadow host large receptions.
- Cellar360 Paso Robles – With sweeping lawns that survey honey-colored hills and acres of grapevines, Cellar360 embodies the quintessential wine country experience. The grassy dell fringed with show-stopping rose bushes and the brick terrace next to a tree-shaded herb garden are almost an embarrassment of riches! So by the time you get around to touring Meridian’s sophisticated Barrel Chai—a high-ceilinged hall lined with aromatic oaken casks—you’ve fallen under Cellar360’s spell. Their service-oriented professionals will recommend local vendors, help arrange wine pairings and even provide discounts on their exclusive, limited-release vintages. (I know, we had you at “honey-colored hills”!)
- Robert Hall Winery – A unique and spacious banquet facility, the Hospitality Center at Robert Hall Winery welcomes guests with an eye-catching geometric blue fountain. Paths lead to an open-air Amphitheater, encircled by reflecting pools that light up, casting a soft glow over your evening reception. Nearby, the lush Garden Terrace offers a classic wine country ambiance with its majestic oak tree strung with fairy lights, and view of the surrounding hills striped with grapevines. Tuscan-inspired interior spaces include the barrel-lined Wine Caverns. The winery’s executive chef has an impressive pedigree, and can customize your menu. Green weddings take note—Robert Hall is Certified for Sustainability in Practice!
