All of the reds were fantastic, we have since joined the top category wine club and couldn't be more pleased. Very good wines and the folks at the tasting room were friendly and loved talking about wines.

We enjoyed the wines at Justin (admittedly as we expected to). The tasting room seems set up for large group, so it lacked the intimacy of some of the other Paso Robles tasting rooms. What this means to say is that the reason to visit Justin is the wines. We did think we might have lunch there, but alas the... More

Dating back to 1981 when Justin Baldwin purchased 160 acres in Paso Robles and 1986 when the first Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays hit the market, Justin has been charming the wine world with its excellent drops. Several of our favourites, which are world-class, include:....... Please visit buzzzzoff.com/?p=4674 for details

Justin Winery was our third and final stop on our first day of wine tasting in the Paso Robles area. The route that we took seemed to go on and on and on. Persist. It is a beautiful drive, and the winery, once you reach it, is worth the effort. The tasting room is very modern, light, and airy, and... More

We took the tour and tasting for $40 each - definitely not worth it. The tour guide was knowledgeable and very good, but the wines were mediocre and overpriced. Five wines tasted and only one good enough to buy any (2 bottles). Very disappointing.

Stopped in to Justin's vineyards after driving through some delightful scenery from Paso Robles. The countryside is stunning on its own with so many great wineries. Our 'host' was great and was well informed not only about the great wine but also about the history of the vineyard. Enjoyable!

I hadn't been to Justin in quite a few years, but decided to put it on the itinerary for my last trip a week ago. We made reservations for lunch at their restaurant..first time I'd been there. Anyway, the outdoor seating overlooks a vineyard and is lovely and the food and wine was excellent! I particularly enjoyed the Brussell sprouts.... More

Moving to CA a couple of months ago has taught me how to appreciate wine and the wine country in CA. This place is just heaven and worth the long long windy drive. And the wine, perfect and just perfect. One of my favorite destinations for a weekend away from my home in Silicon Valley

Justin Winery is one of the best wineries in Paso, consistently delivering quality with its flagship Isosceles and other wine offerings. The entire property has recently been renovated and the tasting room is bright and airy. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, particularly Linda in Concierge who is friendly and was very patient with the countless questions I asked! The... More

Justin's has undergone a complete revamping of the grounds, restaurant and tastings. I love it. The wines were excellent! My brother has a couple of bottles shipped every month to his house in Bakers's field. The menu had a variety of choices. I loved the brussel sprouts. The outer leaves were toasty with a hint of balsamic vinegar! Wow! The... More
