Like a fine wine, Paso Robles, Calif., gets better with age. I was delighted to find new downtown restaurants, wine bars and shops since last visiting five years ago. And there are now more than 200 eclectic wineries dotting the region's oak-shaded country roads. Fall is a great time to visit, especially during Harvest Wine Weekend ( www.pasowine.com ; Oct. 19-21 this year). There's a crush of activities to celebrate the crushing of the grapes: Jump in and try your hand, oops, feet, at grape stomping, get a vino-therapy massage or go to an elegant winemaker dinner or casual barbecue.

Quarterback Derrick Odum scored two touchdowns to lead Woodbridge High School to a 33-25 victory over Paso Robles in a Desert-Mountain Conference quarterfinal playoff game Friday night at Irvine Stadium. Odum, normally a wide receiver and defensive back, stepped in for the regular starting quarterback, Fred Schweer, who was sidelined with a bruised kidney.

The road to and from Mission San Antonio de Padua is twisty, but I've seen worse and it's beautiful ("Paso Robles," by Ann Herold, The Travel Issue, Oct. 15). We took it in our "Synopsis Tour of California" in '02, just when our oldest had finished studying the history of California in sixth grade. I was impressed with the size of the wine cellar at Mission San Antonio. It seems that my compatriots (I come from Barcelona) knew their catechism as well as how to keep their vino cool.

Hearst Castle in San Simeon escaped harm, but Paso Robles, known for its wineries and historic mission, sustained major damage last week in a magnitude-6.5 earthquake that killed two people in Central California. U.S. 101 and California 1, the major highways into the region, were unaffected at the Travel section's deadline Tuesday. There were construction delays on California highways 41 and 46. In Paso Robles, about 20 miles east of the epicenter, the roof of the historic clock tower collapsed.
