Wineries of the Pacific Coast Wine Trail
Visit wineries and tasting rooms nestled in quaint, seaside towns dotted along scenic Highway 1. From Burgundian varieties grown on vineyards minutes from the Pacific Ocean to robust Bordeaux and Rhône varieties grown in Paso Robles, the wines of the Pacific Coast Wine Trail reflect each winemaker’s unique style of winemaking.
Pleasant Valley Wine Trail
Just east of Paso Robles sits the Pleasant Valley Wine Trail, a 12-mile route featuring wines that have earned over 150 awards. The trail offers tasters a unique wine-tasting experience off the beaten path and leads them to wineries selling more than 50 wines rated 90–98 points. The Pleasant Valley Wine Trail is best known for its warm hospitality, handcrafted wines, and undiscovered values of this small yet diverse group of wineries.
Old Edna & Biddle Ranch Road Wine Trail
The historic and geographic center of SLO Wine Country features the most concentrated plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Viognier, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer in the region, and some of the best wines you’ll find anywhere.
