On our last day, the temperatures were perfect. The high was 80 and the sun was shining. We decided to drive to Paso Robles to visit some wineries. We packed our lunch and other snacks and embarked on 45 minutes of beautiful scenery.
We began at J Lohrs winery. You earned your visit on a road that was probably laid 50 years ago. We actually had to pass a gigantic grape harvester on the road. It is huge, and drives over the grape vines. A sign that harvesting is around the corner. Gerald likes the blend of the J. Lohrs wine so we stocked up. This is a nice small winery.
Our next stop was Eberle Winery. The construction was a little tricky to get into the winery. It did not stop the masses. The winery was quite busy. They had tours every half hour for the man made caverns down below. We spent quite a bit of time at this winery. They were harvesting grapes and mashing their viognier grapes. This was a dog friendly winery. On our arrival the winery dogs were roaming around the entrance. Lexi liked this and asked if we could go to more wineries with dogs. The picture is Lexi with Cabernet, the black poodle.
When we arrived back to the trailer we had a snack and tasted our wine selections. This was a great last day. Time to drive the 12 hours back to reality.
