Paso Robles

El Paso de Robles or Pass of the Oaks

Paso Robles is located in the Central Coast of California. The town’s heartbeat is centered around City Park Plaza with restaurants, wine bars/tasting rooms, lodging, and speciality shops around the park. Our visit to Paso Robles was two-fold – 1) check out the wine region & 2) attend the Olive Festival.

Cheese

A side trip to Vivant Fine Cheese was so worth checking this place out. Tried a Sheep’s Milk Hard Cheese called Ewephoria – loved it so much that I bought a wedge. Tried some other Cow’s Milk & Goat’s Milk Cheeses – soft and hard.

Olive Oil

Checked out the 8th Annual Olive Festival on our trip to Paso Robles. The festival is held in the City Park Plaza from 10 am to 5 pm. The festival offers participants bread for olive oil tasting.

I tried olive oil ice cream for the 1st time made by We Olive – 1st bite you taste the olive oil and then it just gets better from there with its creaminess – YUM! We tasted olive oils for about an hour and then took a break before having palate overload – tried some balsamic vinegar, olives, dips, hummus too.

Enjoyed the olive oil from Alta Cresta Orchard and bought a bottle of their Coratina – a balanced olive oil that can be served cold or cook with it.

Camping

Stayed at Wine Country RV Resort – received some wine tasting/purchase coupons upon check-in. The RV Resort hosted a Friday night wine tasting by Daou Vineyards – loved their Zinfandel.

I enjoyed the Adult Spa area with hot tub and fire pit – great way to relax on a Summer evening. The main pool area with hot tub was a great afternoon spot to cool off and escape the heat – loved the shaded seating area.

The pop-up loves to hang with the big rigs!

    Must agree Ken Volk rocks! On my short list! As much as I love olive oil and cheese, these tend to take a back seat on my trips. Glad to see it from the comfort of my office with a glass of wine 🙂

      Shawn –

      I especially love Kenneth Volk’s red wine varietals – Touriga, Mourvedre, Negrette – YUMMY:) If I have a table with wine, another with cheese and another with olive oil I would be running for the wine table first and watch out. Have a Great Evening.

      Take Care – Renee
