This winery was right off the freeway heading into Paso and is very easy to get to. The staff and service were amiable and accommodating with all the wine tasting. It was quite full but it is popular, not only for the unique rustic vibe but because it is one of the few wineries that offer free tastings. We took... More

With all of the wineries in Paso Robales region it was a challenge to find one that did not charge an "arm and a leg" for a tasting. Tobin James was an exception. The tasting was complimentary and the wines are excellent and, for a change in California, reasonably priced! The casual western atmosphere was a change for California and... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon. We tasted one wine and left because it felt more like a very loud bar scene than a wine tasting event. We could hardly hear the young woman who poured for us. There were a couple of obnoxiously loud women near us who were clearly intoxicated. I was surprised they were still being served.... More

Your review is very disappointing as it is not a true review of our products or services. Perhaps you should have reviewed our business after you had a fair try of what we offer--our wines and our hospitality. As a business open to the public, we sometimes do get some customers who are disruptive. I wholly apologize that you encountered... More

We took a group of four friends from the south and Midwest to Tobin James on our second stop of Paso Robles tasting...they loved it! One couple joined the club as well as purchasing wine to be shipped immediately. They were all impressed by the friendliness of the staff and generous tastings. Tobin staff member Justin was a hoot and... More

This is one of the premier wineries in Paso Robles. Just outside of Paso about 5 minutes, personable and friendly.

We had a great time with Bethany as she poured their best wines. She made great recommendations for the rest of our day in Paso Robles.

As many have said - Tobin does have more of a lively, fun vibe compared to other wineries. We have been here a few times and after the first visit, became members of their Wine Club. The wine is all very good - I think it has a distinct taste to it (in a good way). Everyone who works there... More

In addition to excellent, quality wines served here, the staff is fun, welcoming and personable. We always enjoy stopping here when we are in Paso Robles. Their wine club is by far one of the best for the money, and the activities and pick up parties allow all to enjoy. Be sure to try this on your next visit.

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!
