Last year TripAdvisor's forum recommended Rancho Sisquoc Winery as a picture-perfect winery/tasting room for my girlfriend and I to visit while in the Santa Ynez Valley.
We are now planning a trip that will take us to Paso Robles and we'd like to find somewhere equivalent. Let me tell you our 'requirements':
1. Small, intimate, sleepy, almost shack or shed-like tasting room. No big commercial set-up.
2. Beautiful surroundings and backdrop, be it vineyards, gardens, rolling hills, mountains etc.
3. Off the beaten track and a little hard to find, rewarding when you do.
Anywhere spring to mind?
