Pismo Beach is tantamount to great wine. The small beach town is surrounded by some of the best California wine-growing regions including Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, Arroyo Grande Valley, Edna Valley and Paso Robles. Experiencing local wine is as easy as strolling the streets of downtown Pismo Beach, pairing premier tasting with mild weather and a laid-back beach environment.
A recent article in The Tribune by Sandra Duerr highlights one of downtown Pismo Beach’s finest wine establishments, Tastes of the Valleys. This local wine bar features hundreds of Central Coast wines and nearly 1,000 total wines from around the world. Wine Enthusiast recently named it one of the top 20 wine bars in America. It was one of three California wine bars to make the list and one of two small-town wine bars named from the entire U.S.
“This well-stocked tasting room and wine shop sits just a few blocks from the beach and pours hundreds (seriously) of Central Coast wines by the glass. The vast selection and wine-smart staff are why the bar is a favorite among local winemakers and industry insiders.” – Wine Enthusiast
