Our last stop was at Kukkula Vineyards. What drew us to this winery was the name…could it possibly have originated from the Pacific? Actually, Kukkula is the Finnish name for “the hill” and refers to the location of this family’s 75-acre property as well as the owner/winemaker Kevin Jussila’s Finnish heritage.
We had a wonderful afternoon in the sun, the best of company and a nice sample of some of the finest wines Paso Robles has to offer...it was time to head on back to the “Ponderosa” for some relaxation. We are sure that a future festival will again draw us back to explore another "unknown" creator of those tasty elixirs of the vine....only that time we will select only those at the end of dusty trails!!
