Hey Steph and Virginia!

Love your blog and this post. Paso Robles is such a charming and beautiful town that doesn't get enough credit among the best wine regions sometimes.

If you're looking for something truly unique, I would highly suggest checking out Third Wheel Tours. I just did a tour with them recently and can honestly say I was impressed with their high level of service and attention to detail. What really sets Third Wheel Tours apart from traditional wine tasting tours is their authenticity - every interaction feel like a genuinely organic conversation with an engaging guide/driver. And, here's the kicker: you travel by sidecar! How awesome is that!?
