We are here in our future home of the Central Coast. For those that don’t know where CC is it is three hours north of Los Angeles and three hours south of San Francisco. This year we flew into LAX rented a car and hit the road north. Our first day here we hit the road running and hit a few wineries. What I have decided to do in these blogs is present information about each winery. This information will hopefully give a heads up to anyone visiting. I will discuss the tasting costs, the parking area ( because anyone who travels to this area for wine hunts shade like their life depends on it) and if we purchased anything. Additionally I’ll show some pictures of the tasting room
Tasting fee: 5 wines $10 waived with purchase. The tasting room was modern looking with beautiful dark marble tasting bar. People very friendly and helpful. Laetitia offers 6 sparkling wines and 17 additional wines to choose from. They are Open daily 11-5. They had nice picnic benches to enjoy their wine There was very little shade in this parking lot We did not make any purchases here.
Tasting fee: $10 per tasting but you get to keep the Riedel glass. Additionally, fee is waived with purchase. Sextant has two tasting rooms. This one is a quaint country store and is in Arroyo Grande. The other, in Paso Robles, is the complete opposite of the spectrum, and is very modern. The tasting room and gourmet deli, in Arroyo, are open Monday- Friday 10-4. There is a few tables outside to enjoy the food or wine. There are some trees in the lot that provide shade for parking.
