Given the sheer number of wineries surrounding Paso, it can be overwhelming to find a good jumping off point. We suggest Daou. Located about 15 minutes northwest of town, Daou Winery is a Paso institution. For starters, the gigantic tasting room sits on a massive hill and has the best views in the area. This is definitely a high-end operation (tastings start at $40), but their cabernet and rosé are so good, you won’t regret anything when the bill comes. As an added bonus, we wouldn’t be surprised if you found a row of Rolls-Royces parked out front that you can pretend like you own.
