SLO_vines.jpgMidway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the San Luis Obispo wine region was originally planted in the Mission era and restarted production in the late 1960s. The area is comprised of three pristine viticulture areas: the Edna Valley, Arroyo Grande Valley and Avila Valley. The small, mostly family-owned wineries are well known for their hand-crafted bottlings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Grenache, Viognier and Zinfandel.

The marine influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean provides a mild summer and warm fall, resulting in an unusually long growing season. Combined with the region's rocky volcanic soils, these growing conditions produce fruit with intense varietal character and complex flavors. There are over 3000 acres of grapes and more than 25 wineres in the region. – From the SLO Vintners Association
