Wine Tasting
fornia Central Coast. The Albariño has hints of orange blossoms, melons, cherries, and fresh basil while the Rosé is a lovely blend of grenache, syrah, and viognier.
Looking for a red wine? Start with Opolo’s Mountain Zinfandel, a standard bearer of Paso Robles Zin- fandel for more than 20 years. Over that span, Opolo has perfected the trademark Mountain Zinfandel style: rich, bold, fruit-forward and always lively through the finish. Another must-try is the Sangiovese, which bursts with rich aromas of cherry, strawberry, and roasted herbs balanced with vanilla and cinnamon spice, a touch of tannin, and a roasted toffee finish.
Winemakers Chris Rougeot and James Schreiner are passion- ate about fashioning wines from grapes grown at the estate vineyard in the Willow Creek District as well as other notable areas of Paso Robles such as the Templeton Gap and Adelaida District. The cooler westside coastal vineyards are topographically diverse, providing intense and unique flavor profiles. On the eastside, the warmth and
dryness combine to create an ideal microclimate for growing Bordeaux varieties.
Wine club, events, lodging and more
Opolo’s special events, includ- ing quarterly Wine Club parties, are famous for delivering the fun. Keep an eye out at for these and other events throughout the year. And what could be more special than a romantic wedding? Opolo Vineyards is the ideal venue, with oak tree-lined roads, acres
of vines and walnut groves, and a picturesque hilltop.
You can also live the ultimate Paso Robles wine country experi- ence at The Inn at Opolo Vineyards with luxurious, spacious rooms, fireplaces, soaking tubs, wine and appetizers each afternoon, and
a made-to-order breakfast each morning.
