we are in southern california for some weeks in oct/nov and have a 3/4 day "slot" in late october between other commitments. we thought paso robles would be a nice change from la jolla and santa barbara. sadly, this is just after the harvest - will that make things less interesting? we plan on a golf round plus a few winery/vineyard visits. we don't see many wines from this area in switzerland, but we do like many california reds - except perhaps zinfandel, which we have only drunk with turkey. is a wine tour advisable? also, any hotel/b&b suggestions?
