What a beautiful quote from one of the greatest adventure novelists that ever lived – Robert Louis Stevenson. And he should know, too, with many works of poetry to his name helping to further cement his fame and ensure his place as one of the most translated authors of all time. Tragically, his life was cut short, but what a life it was? Why are we telling you all this? Because wine is life, as well. You have one chance to get it right, one chance to pick the grapes at precisely the right time, one chance to get the blend right before bottling. So, you see, this delicious Paso Robles red really is a liquid poem, written in every bottle.

Grape growing has been thriving in Paso Robles for more than 40 years, and the region benefits from incredible climatic diversity, which allows for virtually every wine grape variety to find its unique Terroir and thrive. It helps that the region has always had a great demand for wine, as the constant flow of visitors travelling between Los Angeles and San Francisco route has ensured a stream of thirsty travellers, satiating themselves with a lunch stop fueled by Paso’s vinous treasures for decades.
Fiercely independent, the Paso Robles locals pride themselves on their inability to be painted with the same brush, but rather the sum of its great parts – like a fine red blend. Wine Is Bottled Poetry Red Blend reflects this spirit of symbiotic mélange. It’s built to please many palates, but to come from only place – Paso Robles.
