I spent the fourth of July sipping some excellent wines in Paso Robles. Though I tend to gravitate more toward complex reds, I've now become a huge fan of Cass Winery's Viognier. It's a blissful wine for summer sipping.
The food in the tasting room at Cass is also exceptional, as well as the overall vibe and hospitality. After an amazing pork sandwich, I tried the dessert... bacon cooked in brown sugar and sprinkled over a brownie and ice cream. Um... delicious.
It was a great trip, and I was fortunate to have a personal tour of Denner Vineyards by Ron Denner. An incredible winery to visit!
