Taste Sparkling Wine in Paso’s Downtown Wine District

Updated Summer 2024

Did you know there are over 85 sparkling wine producers in San Luis Obispo County? And we have 11 of them right here in Paso’s Downtown Wine District! Many are such small production that they aren’t available year-round, so make sure to ask at the winery when you visit.

Here are the top 11 sparkling wines in downtown Paso’s Downtown Wine District:

  1. Bushong Vintage Co. makes sparkling Gewürztraminer in the classic Champagne method with grapes are from the Adelaida district. The wine is aged en tirage, meaning on the yeast and lees (grape matter that is leftover from fermentation). This Bubbly has a fuller body plus yeasty aromas, which blends with the fun, aperitif style of the Gewürztraminer grape.
  2. CaliPaso strives to be an authentic Italian experience in Paso Robles, including bringing in Prosecco DOC from Italy. DOC means Denominazione di Origine Controllata or designation of controlled origin, and is the second-highest quality level of Prosecco in Italy – Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto. So you know it’s good.
  3. Derby Wine Estates is located a bit further out from the walkable downtown, in a historic Almond Storage and Growers building, renovated by the Derbys. The Derby Sparkling Brut Rosé of Pinot Noir is made in the classic Champagne method, and is a nutty, complex sparkling wine.
  4. Hayseed & Housdon/Metronome is a new label by Hayseed & Housdon’s right-hand woman, Holli, and this sparkling wine is her vintner debut. Metronome Track 1 is a traditional-method Brut Cuvée, and can be purchased in the Hayseed & Housdon tasting room on Railroad, just behind the main row of Paso downtown businesses. Metronome will help raise awareness and funds for a worthy nonprofit: VH1 Save The Music. 🎶
  5. Hope Family Wines makes Treana Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine, in the Templeton Gap area just north of the 46 west highway. It’s made in the traditional méthode champenoise. You can also visit the winery on Paso’s Westside!
  6. Hoyt Family Vineyards produces an elegant Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine, sourced from Hoyt’s vineyards in Malibu and on the westside of Paso Robles. Made from Chardonnay, it’s light, crisp and refreshing.
  7. Yeux De Chat is Indigené‘s traditional-method Sparkling Wine from Santa Lucia Highlands fruit, that was aged on the lees for several years. The 5g dosage (making this an Extra Brut Cuvée) produced focus, acidity and restrained mousse with a long and elegant finish.
  8. PasoSecco is Paso Robles’ newest Bubbles house! It’s also the first and only winery producing Charmat method sparkling wine made from exclusively Paso Robles grapes. It’s all Grenache Blanc, classic and refreshing. Now open at the corner of 13th & Pine, pus get elevated Mimosas on Saturdays and Sundays!
  9. Tank Garage Winery first opened in an actual garage in Napa Valley, with the aim of celebrating rebels, punk rock, and California dreamin’. Now open in downtown Paso Robles, they showcase their fun labels, unique and rare blends, and never-to-be-drank again bottles (they never make the same wine twice). Ever the innovators, the folks at Tank Garage know how to have fun, especially with their Sparkling Pét Nats, this one, Skateland, made from 67% Barbera, 11% Chardonnay, 6% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault, and 5% Falanghina. And don’t miss their secret VIP room…shhhh!
  10. Tudor Wines specializes in Riesling, with an off-dry, late harvest AND Sparkling Riesling! These bubbles are unique and refreshing, as they are made with force-carbonation in the glass from tap (like a soda machine) or in a can. It’s the perfect summer can of Bubbles for picnics, wine strolls, beach days and lake vacations all summer long.
  11. The cool Wine Boss wine bar carries The Elovaters Summer Blush Sparkling Rosé Brut. It’s made from Syrah grapes from Paso Robles in the traditional method.
