I've visited TJW a handful of times. It was very busy during each visit (on Saturdays). To me, TJW is more of a party atmosphere than for relaxing. But I definitely recommend stopping by TJW for a visit!

This is a great wine tasting stop if you want some lively atmosphere! Not your quaint little boutique winery. This place is for having some fun!!!

Wine tasting was personable and enjoyable. We look for not only good wines but a great experience. At Tobin James, both were good.

We always make a point of visiting Tobin James Cellars on a trip to Paso Robles. The wines are great and the servers fun to talk to. We are members of their wine club -- the James Gang -- so get some extra wines to taste. Definitely worth a stop!

We have visited this winery many times as we used to live in this part of California. We were never disappointed in the past so while we were visiting family during the Christmas season 2016 we knew we just had to visit! When you walk in the low light atmosphere makes 11:00am seem like 7:00pm... you are cheerfully greeted and... More

People with mobility devices can enjoy this winery. We are wine club members. We enjoy our shipments. They always send us a logoed item. Last time it was​ four bowls. There is a wide range of prices on the wines - something for everyone!

We tried their Chardonnay while dining in Cambria. We opted to go check out the winery based on locals feedback that it was worth a trip. They were right! Great atmosphere. Fun western theme. Jessica catered our tasting to our wine preferences. Some nice wines and several varieties to meet each persons preferences If in town, make a stop

What a spot!! I'm here visiting California so my aunt that lives here decided to take go wine tasting. This was the first on the list. The atmosphere was great and our wine steward was amazing!

Free wine tasting! We tried the reserve wines which were all pretty good. Bought a bottle of the Cab Franc. Kay was pouring our wines, giving us the history of Tobin James Cellars and also shared her favorite restaurants in the area (she even drew us a map)! Great overall experience!
