Sculpterra Winery

This incredible gallery of sculptures and fine wine is located in the Paso Robles region on the California Central Coast.  Paso is hot, so the reds are much more exciting then the whites.  I’ve enjoyed several Paso wines that are Napa quality with lower prices.  As far as taste, the Cabernets are smooth and easy […]
