SLO Much Wine, So Little Time: SLO Coast County Wine Country is Waiting for You
If you’ve been to SLO County, you know we’ve got great wine. What you might not know is from the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel in Pismo, there are more than two dozen wineries within about a 20 minute drive or less. (Here’s a fairly comprehensive map.)
That’s a LOT of wine to cover.
Luckily, our friends over at SLOWine.com have broken out the SLO Coast wine country into some doable ‘trails’ that you can cover comfortably in a single visit.
Our coastal neighbor, the Avila Valley, gives you the perfect combination of beach, vineyards, and wineries. If you’ve come for the beach and still want the wine country experience, this is your destination.
San Luis Obispo
Is an urban wine adventure more your style? Head to San Luis Obispo and enjoy the best of downtown SLO and SLO county wines. Say hello to our friends at Filipponi Ranch, Seven Angles Cellars (by appointment), and Stephen Ross Wine Cellars and you’re sure to leave satisfied.

Old Edna and Biddle Ranch Road
Welcome to the heart of SLO County wine! The closest winery (Claiborne & Churchill) is a quick 6 mile drive from the SeaCrest OceanFront hotel and there are a half dozen others within a very close radius. This area is not to be missed as it features some of the best wines in the world.
Orcutt Road and Corbett Canyon
A little further to the east, still just a short drive from Pismo Beach, are the scenic back roads of Orcutt Road and Corbett Canyon. Here you’ll find a handful of excellent wineries for your adventurous spirit, including Baileyana, Center of Effort, Chamisal Vineyards, Chene Vineyards, Kynsi Winery, and Wolff Vineyards.
Arroyo Grande Valley
Head south to Arroyo Grande where you’ll find the southernmost section of SLO Wine Country. This area really has it all, from ocean views to rustic hills. Visit our friends at Laetitia Vineyard and Winery, Talley Vineyards, and Phantom Rivers Winery and you’ll experience the best of Arroyo Grande Valley wines.
Looking for something even closer? Our guests love venturing down to the Sans Liege tasting room, just two minutes from the SeaCrest in Pismo Beach.
