DAOU Family Estates and Vineyards Review | Paso Robles

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, In : Wineries 

DAOU Family Estates, or as many refer them as DAOU Vineyards, in Paso Robles is renowned for their French wines and amazing vineyards view. Upon arrival on Hidden Mountain Road, we drove up the narrow road (meant for sharing both directions without lines) and through rows of vineyards that they own, we reached the top of the estate to the tasting room, where we stepped out to an overlook of their vineyards and hills of Paso Robles.

Best Avila Beach Wine Tasting Rooms | Reviews By a Local

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Monday, September 4, 2023, In : Wineries 
Avila Beach is a very beautiful beach town in San Luis Obispo County with nice restaurants, shops and wine tasting places! As a local, we've visited the handful of wine tasing rooms and places that offer flights right there at Avila Beach. You can easily walk from the sand to any of these places for a wine break.
