Fine Dining in Gilbert/Queen Creek Area

Thanks, yeah I realize the area is not the best for what we are looking for. Still trying to make the best of the situation when we are out there.

Places for dinner in San Luis Obispo

Look for fine dining in SLO. No chains, something that reflects the area, low corkage fee. What ya got?

Please comment on my itinerary for Paso Robles wineries.

My wife and I will be in the PR area next week. Have been to Napa/Sonoma many times but this area is new for us. We like all reds, wife really likes Pinot. Tend to go to smaller places. Not looking for any tours, just tasting (If I have to do one more tour I am going to stick a fork in my eye! ;) ) Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated:

Here is what we have chosen:

Tablas Creek
Vines on the Marycrest
Chronic Cellars
J. Lohr.

I am almost embarrassed to put J. Lohr down as it really does not meet our preference of "small". But I am sure they have some winery only options and it would seem to be a good place to get some history on wine making in this area. Am I wrong?
