Linne Calodo Winery in Paso Robles
The WinoTripping Review
First of all, if you're taking a trip to Paso Robles, you've made a great choice. Paso is awesome. Perfect weather, great town full of distiguished drink and food options, and beautiful wine roads with more than enough tasting rooms for every taste. We had a wonderful time at Alta Colina Winery early one day when we asked our host Maggie where else we should stop. You can do all the research and read up on wineries for weeks before your trip, but the best way to get to the good places is to ask once you're there. It's important to know a little bit about the area and what kind of experience you want, and if there's a certain kind of wine profile you prefer. So go ahead and make a short list of wineries you want to visit, but you should be willing to abandoned it at any time. We at WinoTripping like to suggest to you a great starting point.
When we asked Maggie at Alta Colina, she suggested visiting Linne Calodo, among others, and we took her advice. We drove a loop on Adelaida Road to Vineyard Drive to Route 46W , a beautifully quiet winding road through the hills with dozens of wineries throughout. Linne Calodo sits right on the junction that connects Vineyard Drive with Route 46, making it easily accessible from either 101 or Route 1.
Linne Calodo has recently done some huge upgrades with a completely new tasting room and wine making facilities. Their first vintage was in 1998, and have focused mostly on making balanced Rhone blends, (using Mourvedre, Syrah, Grenache, and Zinfandel). As we drove up the driveway we were impressed with the modern looking building set back in a quiet, wooded setting.
