The article says “the vibe around Paso blends cowboy roots with modern sensibilities,” noting that more than a million visitors flock to the region each year.

The story will also highlight great places to eat, stay, and drink wine when staying in the area.

“We’ve known for a long while how special Paso is, but to have one of the world’s foremost wine magazines declare our region one of the most exciting in California is thrilling, and a boon for the community,” said Joel Peterson, Executive Director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance.

Luxury hotels, fine dining, and a spirit of collaboration, now complement our world-class wine community as we continue to grow our tourism economy. As the article mentions, we’re a premier destination, yet our small-town charm continues to shine bright,” said Danna Stroud, Executive Director of Travel Paso.
