While the building might be part of history on this old-California town square, the interior is smartly modern. And there are some tasty treats to be had with the signature wines here—a tasting menu or rotating à la carte choices (they do have the resource of that fresh ingredient–driven restaurant, after all).”

JUSTIN was highlighted in an article describing Paso Robles becoming a top wine destination.
“Winemakers, especially smaller garagistes and boutique producers have the advantage of working in a region cordial to many varieties, says Clarence Chia, Vice President of Marketing at Justin Vineyards, best known for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend Isosceles. “One reason is the dramatic diurnal swings we have, which allow the vines to cool off each night even when daytime temperatures reach into the triple digits. Although thinner-skinned varieties tend to be more delicate, there are sub-regions within Paso Robles that allow these grapes to thrive,” he says.”
