No visit to the Central Coast would be complete without a visit to a winery or two. And, since we know that vacation includes kids for many of us, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy a day of wine tasting. These family friendly wineries in Paso Robles offer a little something for everyone, welcoming kids of all ages, and even some fur babies, too.
At Barr Estate, family is definitely the key word at this family-owned and operated winery. A tasting of their limited-production wines or olive oil is usually led by a member of the family. Even your four-legged friends will feel at home.
Even the little kids can experience a “tasting” at family-owned Castoro Cellars. Here the youngins get a cup of grape juice while mom and dad get to sample the fermented kind of grape juice. Have older kids in tow? They’ll love playing a round of disc golf at the winery’s 18-hole course, which is included with a tasting.
A pioneer of the Paso Region wine region Gary Eberle has been making great wines at Eberle Winery for more than 20 years. Here, you can enjoy a complimentary tasting and tour of the wine caves, then get the whole family involved in a game of bocce ball or cornhole.
At the boutique, family-owned Penman Springs, the focus may be on their estate-grown wine, but it’s the hospitable vibe at this quaint tasting room. Their goal is to make sure everyone in the family feels welcome, including Fido.
Families and groups will love a visit to Robert Hall Winery, where the hospitality center is open daily. There’s plenty for the whole family to enjoy — from bocce on regulation-size bocce courts to giant chess, Jenga and even Connect Four. It all makes for a fun, family friendly afternoon in wine country.
Even though it’s one of the first wineries in the Paso Robles AVA, the family-owned and operated Rio Seco has remained true to its family values. Here, you can pack a picnic and enjoy the scenery, walk through the olive grove and revel in the relaxing ambiance. They even have an on-site guest house for club members to feel welcomed in wine country.
At Sculpterra Winery you’ll find chess, bocce ball, foosball and table tennis. All are available to play free of charge — which is sure to keep the active kids (and the young at heart) busy for a while. There’s also human-sized wind chimes and a sculpture garden perfect for exploring before or after a tasting.
The Adelaide Inn is located in the heart of Paso Robles Wine Country and just minutes from historic downtown Paso Robles’ shopping, dining and wine tasting rooms. Check out our Perfect Pair package for your next stay.
