Napa, Sonoma—the grapes up north get all the press. Head a little farther south, however, and you'll discover an equally bountiful wine region on the Central Coast. Known not only for its grapes, which were introduced to the region in 1797, but also for its fruit orchards and thermal hot springs, San Luis Obispo County is the unsung sweet spot of California wine countries.

Give it a swirl at Emily's House, a farmhouse-style B&B in Downtown Paso Robles that affords visitors easy access to more than 200 area wineries and tasting rooms. Though reminiscent of decades past, the house is appointed with a light-filled gourmet kitchen, custom finishes, and vintage accents. Rooms, in addition to plush featherbeds, feature beautiful views, period antiques, and pastoral artwork.

"You needn't be an oenophile to appreciate the rolling hills, towering golden oaks, white fences enclosing quarter horses, and skies patrolled by red-tailed hawks," says The New York Times. "Downtown Paso Robles, with its square, bandstand, shops, restaurants, and ten-screen Mission-style movie theater, makes a good base for a leisurely weekend of exploration."

When you aren't indulging in a tasting tour of local olive oils, olives, cheeses, wine, beer, and apple cider, check out the town's natural hot springs, specialty boutiques, and charming architecture, which ranges from adobe to high Victorian. Four local golf courses and the nearby City Park also promise to keep you in high spirits.

When night falls, top off your day by treating yourself to dinner at Tenth Street Basque Cafe. You can sit on the patio, delighting in Spanish fare like chicken and sausage paella or fresh-baked bread with olive tapenade.

  • Arriving in downtown Paso Robles is like stepping onto a movie set. ... It's worth taking a leisurely stroll around the square before heading out into the rolling vineyards for an afternoon of wine tasting."
