We stopped here on our way to Morro Bay. We had tried the wine before and wanted to see the winery. It was very busy. We just bought our wine and headed out for our holiday weekend.

Wines only so so. This is a low price point winery and it shows. First time I ever walked away from a dessert wine Wine themed gifts include a nice selection of Hawaiian shirts. Every so often the tasting room provides warm foods like chili or flank streak which was a nice touch

I loved the old saloon it was based on and how accommodating they were to bringing children (they even have free arcade games). Plus the samples were free and the wine was quite good.

Recommended by friends, we stopped by for tasting. Even though there was a lot of space when we arrived, all spaces were quickly filled by arriving guests. Each member of the staff was friendly and we enjoyed tasting many different varietals of delicious wines.

This winery is by far the most laid back and casual of all of our stops and the only one to offer complimentary tastings. The prices of the wines are surprisingly affordable, but don't let that fool you they are incredible. Tobin James was the only stop that we bought two bottles from because they had so many choices that... More

Feels like home when we return. We are wine club members and it is the best wine club! But when we visit the winery everyone is extremely friendly and we have the opportunity to taste wines that are not available in our shipments or in the stores. Do not pass through Paso without making a stop at Tobin James!

Oh, and did I forget to mention the great wine! Not your typical vineyard/winery. Upbeat and very friendly staff and atmosphere. I wish I could remember the young lady's name that took care of us during our tasting because she was awesome! We just received our first shipment from the "James Gang" wine club last week, and the first two... More

Lively and fun stop for wine tasting in Paso. This was our second time here and it did not disappoint. In fact, the wine club was such a good deal it couldn't be passed up. Many varietals to choose from and lots of fun items in their gift shop.

We appreciated you stopping in to our winery tasting room, but we are not a bar, as you seem to think. We are not in business to provide free wine. Our wines are offered complimentary so tasters may make their decisions on purchasing them. We do not appreciate being taken advantage of for our generous hospitality. More

Just got my wine club shipment and tickets for James Gang Festival. Great wine and fun at a great price. This is my second year now for both and I am hooked. I can't wait until March to visit again.
