Voted one of the top ten tasting room experiences in America by USA Today, LXV's Wine Lounge is located in the heart of downtown Paso Robles and offers guests a unique sensory wine and spice pairing experience. We pair each of our wines with a custom spice blend that has been assembled by our team. These pairings mirror, complement, and sometimes contrast the flavors of our wines—unraveling deeper, more subtle notes that wink in and out of conscious recognition, revealing a degree of complexity and depth that is sometimes elusive to the most trained palate. We will first introduce the guests to the three paradigms covered in the tasting: Terroir, Vintages, and Aging. Then four LXV wines will be paired with highly curated seasonings - each pairing is meant to deconstruct the various aspects of the wine. For example, the Reserve Cabernet Franc, an homage to Chinon, will be paired with mint, peppermint, herbs and black garlic to highlight the complex flavors of cooked black fruit, baking spices and game.
The LXV Wine and Spice experience has been hailed as Top 10 Wine Experiences by USA Today and has been the highest-rated in Paso Robles since its inception in 2013. Being the first Indian woman to own a wine brand in America inspired me to infuse exotic flavors from India and from around the world with the wine tastings. We have changed the conversation about wine pairings from the ubiquitous "red wine-red meat" variation to the focussed interplay of wines and seasonings. More than a typical tasting—LXV’s wine and spice flights are a curated journey of the senses. We offer a deep dive into Paso’s varied sub-appellations, the influence of weather patterns, selection of clones, and old-world philosophy of winemaking. As such, it is a workshop that leaves you wanting for more!
