    We loved this winery last year, but something has changed! I do not know if it is the change in ownership or the fact that it was a Sunday, but both of us said that none of the wines tasted very good....  more »

    Good selection of wines and the Wine Stewards are very knowledgeable. When they have suggested pairings it's always on point when we try it at home. Wine is ALWAYS at a good price. Their outdoor area is also beautiful! We were there in November and this month we will be taking our daughter and her new husband as well as our sons. Looking forward to yet another wonderful experience! We 💜 Tobin James

    If there was ever a party in Paso, this is it!!! Free wine tasting and no "6 max" rules or anything like that. Want to try all their zins? You got it! And there are about 8 of them. Tobin James is always crowded and it's really not JUST because they're free, but because they're one of the best wineries with some of the friendliest staff you can find. Also, they're the ones who host the biggest parties for wine club members and other wine companies. Can't ever go wrong here!

    Wine tasting is free here. The wine is great. We took home several bottles. There is no vineyard here. Its only a tasting room. If you want a vineyard experience, be sure to checkout 'castoro'

    So. Many. People. This is by far the most crowded rating room in Paso. But it's also completely free. They have something for everyone and will help you find what you like. Great staff and a great location.
