Central Coast- Need help with wineries... which ones am I missing out on?
- geekyfoodie Dec 27, 2011 10:34 PM
Hey all... I visit the Central Coast fairly often and try to visit as many new-to-me wineries possible. At this point, I've hit most of the ones I've wanted to visit and need some fresh entries on the must-visit list. Or perhaps a revisit if any changes have occurred recently. Or an edit to my current must-visit list. Can y'all help? Thanks! Please see the list below.
On the must-visit list:
Turley (I've been, but was DD and didn't really taste)
re: Bruce in SLO
We tasted at Windward Vineyards in October, they produce only Pinot Noir. I highly recommend a visit there. Vina Robles is another one we really like. Turley has some awesome Zins, we have tasted there a few times. Robert Hall is another one of our favorites. Beautiful grounds, excellent wines and a nice place in the back where you can relax with your tastings. Cheers! :)
On the eastside, try Clautiere and down in Creston on the east side, Chateau Margene. These two have done some very nice Cabernet Sauvignon from estate grapes. Chateau Margene also has done a very nice Sangiovese.
Definitely Chronic, we love that place. Also please try Anglim Winery in downtown Paso Robles, at the old train station. Amazing wines, no attitude.
I see you've been to Lone Madrone, Ken Volk now has a tasting room there now as well and does some very interesting wines. Would strongly suggest a return visit if he wasn't there on your last visit
