Their tasting room is slightly off the beaten path from the heart of Tin City, and they are A-OK with that. In fact, we almost drove right past it, as it’s in an industrial complex with a single glass door.

This visit was definitely one of our highlights on this Paso

Brian and Stephanie Terrizzi are the husband and wife team behind these fine Italian varietals coming out of Paso Robles.

Giornata is another tasting room in Tin City that we thoroughly enjoyed. The funny thing about this visit was everywhere that we went prior to, and mentioned that we were going to Giornata, everyone had the same comment: “Tell Steph hi!” After spending a good amount of time with Steph (aka Stephanie Terrizzi), we completely understand her popularity! Super down to earth and really fun... just a cool person to drink wine and chat with. Which is exactly what we did!

On top of that, though, the wines were all really great. We left with nearly a case, if that gives you any indication of how great these wines were. Plus they were very reasonably priced!! We have
