Tobin James Cellars, established in 1985, is famous for its rich, intense Cabernet Sauvignons, Zinfandels, Syrahs, Merlot, Bordeaux blends, Chardonnay and many other varietals. Tasting at the Grand Antique Bar, the popular Tasting Room is always a must for wine lovers. The legendary James Gang Wine Club is a growing testament to the winery's commitment to excellent quality and its fun, unpretentious approach to wine. Complimentary tasting. Only closed Christmas Day.

My wife and I met Toby while on vacation and after spending some time with him it was easy to see just how much he loved his wine, his winery and the people that works with him. While in CA for work, we took a day to visit his winery, and were just blown away. Besides the great wines and Old West Saloon style tasting room, were the people working in the tasting room and winery. They were all great, friendly, passionate, knowledgeable and helpful to everyone who came through the door. We have been to many tasting rooms up and down route 46, many are stiff and impersonal, charge for tasting and are just like the last one you visited. Not so at Tobin James. We spent the afternoon and bought a mixed case to ship home. We loved it, an absolute must if you are in the area, we're sure you'll have a great time.

Went here on a four winery tasting, and this place blew us all away. The atmosphere was great, like an old west saloon, and the pourers were even better. We had a great time tasting, eating, and buying wines to take home.
Probably one of the best timer I've ever had at a winery

Tobin James has created a very unique marketing strategy. It pours a lot of free wine and sells memberships in its great wine club (and, of course, wines by the bottle). It worked for us and we've never regretted the decision. The wines are good. The atmosphere is fun. It's worth a stop.

Such a fun winery! Kay was serving us and SO much fun. This was our fourth winery of the day so I can't speak much to the quality of the wine but would definitely be back.

This was our first stop on our mini getaway in Paso Robles. So glad we stopped here and even more glad we got there early. They had just opened the second bar for tastings. We got to chat with the staff about the wines, the area, etc. before it got too crowded. It's a laid back atmosphere, not at all pushy, and not to mention...yummy wines! We especially liked some of the wines from their reserve list. Will definitely be back!
