“It’s cliché,” says Kim Hauck of HammerSky Vineyards,
the Paso Robles winery she owns with her husband, Douglas, “but I always hear guests describe us as ‘a slice of heaven’ or a ‘magical place.’ ” It’s easy to see why, and it’s no surprise that the property has become a sought-after wedding venue. The Bordeaux-style vineyard is anchored by a restored farmhouse with three bedrooms and a dressing suite that’s just a stroll away from the tasting room and barn, an airy space that can seat up to 45 guests. Hauck works closely with brides on all aspects of the event, and the award-winning in-house wines make a natural pairing. “We create an amazing experience for couples and their guests,” she adds. And there’s nothing cliché about that. 7725 Vineyard Dr., Paso Robles, 805-239-0930; hammersky.com.
