The Readers’ Choice 10Best list, which was released today, features the top 10 best new wineries in the country as selected by USA TODAY readers.
The Serial Wines Tasting Lounge opened in March 2022. Located in the heart of downtown Paso Robles, the Tasting Lounge features wines that highlight the exciting and diverse Paso Robles AVA.
