I recently mentioned in this post about visiting a few wineries in the Paso Robles area back in June. We read about Brian Benson Cellars in the March 31st issue of Wine Spectator. But while at Epoch, Christina recommended we go there and not only did she recommend them but she also called over and got Brian to open up for us! And boy were we happy that she did. Brian Benson is awesome. The wine was delicious and Brian himself is quite the character. He has such an intense love for what he does and not only does it show in his wine, but in just about everything you see in his tasting room. He has some blends (Kandy Red) and offers various years of his Syrah, along with one Cab and one Zin. Look at those wine scores below! When we were there, he also gave us a personal tour of this barrel room. It was so nice to see the passion he has come through in all of the different wines waiting to be bottled.
If you are in the area, please call and make an appointment to visit Brian Benson Cellars. You will not be disappointed!
