For the most part, familiar white wines such as chardonnay and sauvignon blanc come from the cooler climates to the north and south of Paso Robles. But lesser-known grapes are starting to make a name for themselves among red-wine country. Look for these varietals around the region's tasting rooms


Robert Haas, a maverick in his own right, helped expand the store into what would become - after being sold to a rival in 1965 - Sherry-Lehmann Wine and Spirits, one of the best-known wine retailers in the United States. He also founded Vineyard Brands, a leading wine importer. And, at 62, he embarked on a high-risk, long-haul venture as a California vintner

One of those pioneers passed away recently-Robert Haas. He co-founded Tablas Creek Vineyard, establishing Paso Robles as a world-class wine region and introducing Americans to French-style Rhone varietals.

They've optimized viticulture and dialed back the tonnage to produce varietal Grenache as nuanced and delicious as top-shelf Pinot Noir-often at half the price


"More than 600 vineyards and wineries around the United States use Tablas Creek cuttings, and my dad was always convinced that our decision to bring in vines spurred the reversal of a long-standing policy by ENTAV (the French national nursery service) against partnering with out-of-country nurseries," Jason Haas wrote. "This policy change has led to the import of hundreds of new varieties and clones, and a new flowering of diversity in American grapegrowing, Rhône and otherwise." The legacy of Robert Haas's tenacity can also be seen in the pursuit of sustainability at Tablas Creek, first, as an organic producer since its inception ? well before the concept of organics became a topic or option for consumers ? and later in 2017 as a Demeter-certified biodynamic vineyard, complete with a full-time shepherd for its roaming flock of llamas, goats, sheep, and donkeys
