We recently made our way over to Venteux Vineyards in Templeton, just south of Paso Robles, to do some tasting. This is another one of those spots that we haven’t been to for some time so we’ve been trying to fix that.
This place is absolutely beautiful. The rolling hills and vineyards that surround the tasting room and winery are the definition of what this area is about. The really cool thing though is that not only can you enjoy the scenery while wine tasting but if you feel like it you can book the B&B that is right next to the winery.
The B&B looks absolutely amazing from the outside, we have not been in it but I imagine it’s fantastic on the inside too. So make a mental note of that and book them on your next trip to the Paso Robles/Templeton area!!
The folks pouring wine in the tasting room were great, friendly and informative! We had Sammy with us so the other folks in there tasting, along with the two ladies pouring, got distracted with his striking good looks (haha). They have a great covered patio area right outside the tasting room too, which is perfect for those warm central coast days!!
How about the wines?
Here’s what we tasted:
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
2009 Tache Le Verre (100% Syrah)
All the wines were nice but we walked away with the Cab Sauv, the Tache Le Verre, and the Rose (which was not being poured but we love Rose).
All in all it was another great tasting room experience here in paradise!
