    Tobin James is one of our stop every time we go to Paso Robles. It is easily accessible off the 46 Hwy. The western feel of the space is fun and lively. The people who work there are friendly and knowledgeable about their wine.

    Doc helped with our wine tasting. He is a retired dentist who has a knowledge of wines and easily spots what wines you will enjoy. He introduced wines we were wary of, but truly enjoyed. He opened up our senses to wines and is extremely personable.

    Tobin James has an beautiful location. The gift shop has plenty of items to choose from for those of us who like to shop. Parking in plentiful. It has the family owned and operated feel which is a breath of fresh air from some other wineries in the area. I would recommend kicking up your bootstraps and relax in a really fun place. If you're lucky, the will actually run into Tobin James.

    It was a very pleasant feel to be able ti visit the winery without reservation. We asked at front area if we could just drop in for a wine tasting experience and he said most likely. We parked down below at parking lot A and wait for shuttle that will pick us up. When we were picked up about 8 -10 min, we were surprised to get picked up in a really nice Limo type huge van. It felt very comforting and A/C equipped.
    After dropped off on front door, the view looked spectacular 360 degrees of valley and winery’s view.
    So far everything was going well. After we checked in at front desk they greeted with a Rosé DAOU tasting and set us at a very nice and ambient table with a umbrella shade.
    The scenery looked awesome and very nicely spread out . They really take care of their grounds. Perfect grounds.
    Our Host Wesley Andrews greeted us and asked if it was our first time, of course we said and was very delighted that we came from Napa county are. He gave us a little run down on winery and he is very knowledgeable of wines. He showed us the options of food and wine and becoming a Member after we asked.
    We order some food, the cheese platter, beat salad and a kofta meal, perhaps it was a bit too much but we did not have breakfast. We were do surprised with the taste and presentation of plates and even Naan bread on cheese platter. The plates had a middle easter fusion and it was a very good combination of tastes on dishes. We had 6 tastings, we did not know our tastings had six. It was perfect for our big meal. We walked all grounds and all hosts were very pleasant as we walked grounds and took lots of pictures. Some even offer to take our pictures. Which was very nice because my selfies of us were not as nice.
    Anyway I won’t make it any longer and definitely will come back again and visit Wesley Andrews our Host.

    thanks Erik for fantastic service, the wine and local destination tips, and the leisurely experience in a beautiful setting. Went on a weekday avoiding the crowds and that helped a lot. Ordering food and getting a table makes the wine tasting much more enjoyable. Highly recommended!

    The winery is located west of Paso Robles. We got a reservation and was able to wine taste and eat lunch on their patio with our dog. The patio and grounds were beautiful. The lunch menu varied from a great salad to hamburgers and other entrees. All the food was delicious. The lady that did the wine tasting was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, made it all very interesting, answered questions so well. This is one of the best places for lunch and wine tasting in the area.

    Lots of historic aircraft and artifacts. If you're at all an airplane buff, take advantage of this gem. Cold war planes and even a Titan missile. Great for kids to get up close.

    Do’s and don’ts
    1. Do book ahead
    2. Book vip experience but not platter. Platter is a waste of money
    3. Do wear boots or shoes. Not sandals. It’s rough sandy turf and your footwear will get all dusty
    4. Do carry one light blanket per person. Even in peak summer this place will be windy and chilly. And wear light jackets.keep your masks on, they will save you from inhaling dust.
    5. Get their on time so u can find a spot next to a heater
    6. Vegetarians have choice of veggie tacos, nachos, rice, cheese quesadilla and fruit bowl at the Rick’s taco truck. In the other one you can get veggie burger and churros.
    7. Don’t get their guacamole. There is no flavor. Just mashed avocados. Their roasted salsa is the best. Pico de gallo is also very average. Fruit bowl is good and easily three people can enjoy.
    8. Don’t go on long weekends. You will not get any decent hotel rooms.
    9. In summer’s light start only around 8:45-9:00pm. So finish eating by then so u can enjoy lights rest of the time and head out.

    My review of Justin winery and restaurant is objectively based on our trips to visit other wineries around the world. This includes Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, most major wine areas in France, including Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, Loire Valley and Provence. We also frequent Willamette for Pinot, the Finger Lakes, NY for Reisling, and Niagara on the Lake, Canada for Ice Wine. We have also been blessed to have tried a handful of 1 and 2 Star Michelin restaurants in France and the US, and not too long ago attended a private dinner in Las Vegas at Bouchon where our host was none other than Thomas Keller. I list those experiences for context. I rarely write reviews, but my last visit to Justin was so exceptional, I decided to take a moment to share. Full disclosure, I am a fan of Justin and have been for many years. I even participated in the virtual wine tastings with Justin Baldwin at every opportunity during Covid! That being said, I have not been to the winery and restaurant for over 10 years, and my most recent visit exceeded expectations. Their team is awesome. From Joan to Larry, Evan and Ben...I was treated like a VIP. Their Bordeaux style red wines and blends are all fantastic, and if you are a wine club member, or better yet, an Isosceles member, you have access to the wine society lounge, and can upgrade to a library tasting, which I did. All of the wines I tasted were so good and you quickly get to a point where you just appreciate the quality level and passion that goes into it. I was really looking forward to the wine pairing dinner, and it was AMAZING. I do not recall the name of my server (darn), but she was great, and Ben, the Sommelier was a true rock star. We had a lot of fun as we talked about the different vintages and nuances of each. The food was on another level, so much so that I temporarily became one of the crazies who takes photos of each dish!!! (I do not normally do that).. there are so many great wineries in Paso alone, but Justin stands above all in my opinion. I am currently enjoying a glass of Justification from my most recent shipment, and I cannot wait to go back some day. I hope this review is helpful.

    We made a reservation for a wine tasting on their porch. All the staff were friendly and welcomed our dog. The wine guide was knowledgeable and very nice. The outdoor and indoor areas are beautiful. Great wine.

    My husband and I had a lovely outside tasting at Castoro. They had excellent white & red wines & allowed us to picnic while tasting. Our server was outstanding & gave us several special pours including the Due Mila Quindici which was amazing! Outstanding experience. A++
