Recently I was heading up to Paso Robles to be a judge at the Central Coast Wine Competition. On my way, I went to meet with winemaker and owner David McGee of Monochrome Wines. His tasting room is located in Tin City, an super-hip wine tasting destination in Paso Robles. But, Tin City has more to offer than just wine tasting some of the best boutique wineries in the region. There are a few other surprises. You can read all about it in the story that I had written for California Winery Advisor. So what is Tin City Paso Robles and why should wine lovers care? Fifteen minutes south of the town of Paso Robles, an unassuming industrial park is home to an unexpected experience: Tin City. While pool supply companies, auto body shops, and air conditioning distributors are still located here, there is no mistaking that Tin City is Paso’s hippest wine tasting destination. Add in a brewery, cider maker, and distillery and it is clear that Tin City is a drinker’s paradise!

Before We Get To The Tiny City Wineries

I love ice cream. And this week while on a trip to Paso Robles, I found Negranti Creamery. A family owned ice cream company based in Paso Robles, Negranti Creamery is the Please The Palate pick of the week. Negranti Creamery was created by Alexis and Wade Negranti who met at Cal Poly. Both had good jobs when Alexis decided that she wanted to start a sheep dairy. Neither one of them had milked an animal before. They milked their first ewes in 2011 and got their license in 2012. Today they are the first licensed sheep's milk production facility for ice cream in the US.
