Paso Robles Getaway October 2013 Winery #1 #PeachyCynWinery

If you read my last few blogs, you will know that I was in Sonoma for a few days, and then went home with my oldest daughter and husband to spend a few days with my two oldest granddaughters!

Here we are headed to a soccer game and Huntington Beach!

P and me at lunch!
A's volleyball game!

We played all week after school, ate lunch with the girls at school, went to volleyball games, etc. And then it came time to go and I couldn't leave. I don't get to see them very much, so I stayed three more days. That's when my daughter and I decided to go to Paso Robles Wine Country. There had been a big wine weekend in that region, so the Monday after was slow and a perfect time to visit the tasting rooms.

 Peachy Canyon Winery-Our first winery on the list. We had carefully planned a route so that no time would be wasted-our time was limited due to picking up the girls from school at 3:00. (Turns out we arranged another ride for them because we didn't get back in time and our driver got a speeding ticket :( on the way back!)

The lady in this tasting room was so sweet and she poured us twelve tastes before it was all over! Here's what we had! By the way, it was all good! Score at the first stop!

2011 Incredible Red Zinfandel ($15) was indeed incredible at a low price!

2012 Edna Valley Chardonnay ($25)-100% Chardonnay-aromas of warm baked good and tastes of fresh green apples.

2012 "Concrete Blanc" Viognier ($25) is an amazing wine. A very floral wine with notes of citrus peel. So good! 

2012 York Mountain Chardonnay ($30) Notes of key lime, lemon, and white nectarine aged in neutral French Oak barrels.

2012 Dry Rose' ($28) This is a blend of Grenache, Petite Sirah, Viognier, Zinfandel, and Syrah grapes. Wonderful Rose'!

The next five wines are Zinfandels! All unique and all great wines! Each one haas it's own unique taste and if you love Zinfandels, you will love these!

The last wine we tasted at PCW was a 2010 Petite Sirah ($32). 

The second best thing about Peachy Canyon is that both husband and wife were teachers (looking for a better life)! Good for both of you! You found a way to another way to have fun with a different kind of stress! I love teachers and teaching! And I love their wines!
