The region roughly forms a rectangle that is 35 miles from east to west and 25 miles north to south. It lies on the eastern side of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range and is characterized by rolling hills east of the Salinas River and steeper hillsides, cut by small canyons, west of the Salinas River. Soil diversity is the norm and a vineyard may commonly contain several different soil types.

Unique Fact 
The Paso Robles wine region benefits from the largest swing between high daytime and low nighttime temperatures of any region in California as a result of the cool marine air that flows east through the Templeton Gap and north along the Salinas River Valley from the Monterey Bay. The region’s summer is characterized by warm, clear days, generally unencumbered by clouds, fog or severe winds. This diurnal fluctuation is considered a key by winemakers and wine grape growers to attain the intense varietal character displayed in wine grapes from the area.
