Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau
Our barbecue is cooked slow. Our wine smooth. And our company, well, come see for yourself. When you step into the Santa Maria Valley, you’ll eat, drink and do more. That’s our way.
Santa Maria Valley is the perfect home base for those looking to enjoy California’s Central Coast. You’ll find us nestled in the foothills of the Santa Barbara Wine Country, 40 miles south of Morro Bay. The weather here makes visiting the Santa Maria Valley easy year-round with temperatures averaging 69 degrees.
So no more saying, “Maybe next weekend.” Come play in the coastal dunes, tour our sprawling vineyards and get your fill of our iconic Santa Maria-style barbecue. What we have is grown, cooked and corked right here. We pair our wine with jeans and a smile and just like we grow our grapes, we invite you to take your sweet time, let your hair down, and get away from it all. With a wide variety of affordable and convenient lodging options, you can even stay an extra night and enjoy another delicious helping of our amazing barbecue. As most of our visitors have quickly learned, here in the Santa Maria Valley, everyone is family and “another round” is a given. Let’s get together.
