San Luis Obispo, CA, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Along California’s Coastal Highway 1 from San Simeon to Morro Bay, ten award-winning wineries have come together to promote the beauty and diversity of Central Coast wines in one geographic location: The Pacific Coast Wine Trail (PCWT). Nestled along a 28-mile stretch of Pacific Coastline in San Luis Obispo County, the wineries of the PCWT are located off the beaten path in five quaint, seaside towns, making it the perfect “secret spot” for wine tasting, offering experiences as unique as the coastal communities themselves.
“All ten of the Pacific Coast Wine Trail wineries feature handcrafted small production wines from local vineyards, showcasing their own personality and style of winemaking,” said Maria Benetti, General Manager of Stolo Family Vineyards. “That’s what makes us a unique wine trail, and that we offer a range of boutique Rhone, Bordeaux, Burgundian, Tuscan and Alsatian varietal wines, grown, harvested and vinted with care and excellence.”
Just a three-to-four hour drive south from the Bay Area or north from Los Angeles, the PCWT’s unmatched coastal location and Mediterranean weather make it the perfect destination for a great “secret spot” wine tasting getaway year round. Visitors traveling the PCWT are encouraged to enjoy an additional view on wine pairing: balance your wine tasting adventure with hiking, antiquing, beach time, a visit to Hearst Castle, kayaking, viewing the elephant seal rookery just north of San Simeon, or the Cormorant Rookery on the harbor in Morro Bay.
The PCWT also offers a Brochure and Tasting Passport, inviting wine lovers to visit and taste at each destination. Guests who travel the Trail and collect a stamp at five or more wineries will be entered into a semi-annual drawing to win a wine lifestyle package. Passports can be downloaded from the website or found at any of the ten wineries. For more information visit www.pacificcoastwinetrail.com/index.html.
