San Luis Obispo Wine Country Winery Directory

In southern San Luis Obispo County, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, San Luis Obispo (SLO) Wine Country is an incomparable place. Here, the mountains, valleys, and Pacific Ocean converge and create a splendid climate for growing winegrapes. The coastal influence in the Edna and Arroyo Grande Valleys provides one of the longest grape growing seasons in the world. It also provides a boundless resource for outdoor recreation. Wine lovers can go from wine to waves in five minutes, where they explore classic California towns like Pismo Beach.
