Spirits Out of Wine? Paso’s Re:Find Distillery Ep. 12

Paso Robles, on California’s Central Coast, is known for big Cabernets and Zins, and Rhone varietals, from Grenache Blanc to Syrah. But now, Paso is becoming a craft spirits mecca, with at least a dozen distilleries along the Paso Robles Distillery Trail. One common thread? You’ll find most of the spirits start out in wine vineyards.
