Sextant - A South County AND North County Option
We stopped into Sextant's Edna Valley tasting room on a weekday afternoon. We were a bit surprised to find it rather bustling and busy, despite it being mid-week. The tasting room is charming and well-appointed and the wines match.  A fun, light-hearted stop, Sextant is the perfect place to take out-of-town visitors, friends with kids, or larger groups! Happy Tasting! -Chenise & Jamie

Atascadero Stops - Ruby Cellars
When you think of wine tasting, Atascadero may not be first on your destination list. However, Ruby Cellars is an easy and convenient stop and is even open later than any other tasting room! So stop in, virtually with us and then in person after you listen. Happy tasting! -Chenise & Jamie

Timbre - Part II
Take two at Timbre! This week we're catching you up on the red wines at Timbre Winery. We also want to apologize for some of the scratchy sound quality (we think we're DJs) that crops up toward the end of the recording. Our trusty recording device ran low on battery juice during our visit and we had to switch to our backup mic, which got a little scratchy. We left most of the audio in because there's some good info that comes through, but we know it can be hard to listen to! Thanks for sticking it out with us. Happy tasting, we'll have a fresh place for you next week! - Jamie & Chenise

Timbre - Part I
This week we are taking you to Timbre. Timbre has an adorable tasting room in an old craftsman house nestled in the village of Arroyo Grande. They’ve got plenty of wines to try and virtually something for everyone. They have so many choices, in fact, that we’ve split our visit into two parts. Part one this week will let you explore their white wine program and even a little something extra. Happy Tasting!

The Fableist - Tin City Staple
We visited The Fableist Wine Co on  Sunday morning and were impressed with all the offerings. Especially since all the offerings are $20! Check out this episode to hear more about what the Fableist pours, the story behind the name, and the story behind the fabled prices! Happy Tasting!

A Peek Into Locatelli Vineyard and Winery
You know that feeling when you’re so sure that you already know everything about a certain thing or area and then you realize you’ve been wrong and actually know nothing? That was the feeling we got after visiting Locatelli. I knew that I hadn’t been to ALL the wineries in this area, but I felt sure that I’d been to all the really good ones or at least heard of them. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Locatelli is a gem and Wiley was a fantastic guide through our whole experience there. Tune in and discover Locatelli! Happy Tasting! - Chenise and Jamie

Down by the Riverstar
This time change has us dreaming about long, hot summer afternoons that bleed into more tolerable evenings. Evenings spent sipping on wine, sitting on a large lawn, listening to some local music and watching kids and dogs play. Do you know the perfect spot to do ALL those things? We discovered one such spot when we visited Riverstar Winery a couple weeks back. They’ve got a lot to offer as a stop along the Pleasant Valley Wine trail. Check it out and then go check them out! Happy Tasting! - Chenise & Jamie

YOLO SO SOLO
This week is a little bit of a change of pace. We’re not releasing an episode about a winery, but we still wanted to touch base. It’s short and sweet, and just Jamie this time around. We will be back next week with some freshfresh content!

Le Vigne...Lasagne...We love-eh
There’s nothing we like better than some nibbles with our wine. Wine is meant to go with food, plus it helps to have something in your stomach when you’re tasting at 5 places in a day, right? Le Vigne in Paso Robles is doing the pairing thing right, plus they have a whole cheese ROOM. That’s right, cheese room.

Visiting Sinor La-Valle
Another week, another winery! But don’t worry, this isn’t just another hum-drum visit. This week we sat down and drank some wine in Avila Beach at the Sinor La-Valle tasting room. We learned how to correctly pronounce the name, more about biodynamic wine, and got to try a pet-nat, which you don’t normally see around here! We hope our visit inspires you to check out Sinor La-Valle next time you’re in Avila. Happy Tasting!

Episode 7 - Clos Solène
This week we leave the more southern end of the county and head to Paso Robles. Tag along as we visit Clo Solène, which is an appointment only experience. Visiting their estate tasting room was such a fun experience, and we learned a ton about their wine and about all the French people in the area! Enjoy!

Episode 6 - Morovino
This time around we visited Morovino in lovely Avila Beach! Morovino specializes in Italian varietals. We had a lovely visit with the owner and winemaker. She told us all about the wines and how she became a winemaker. Enjoy! Happy Tasting! -Chenise & Jamie

Episode 5 - Piedra Creek Winery
This week the focus is on the story behind the wine. We spent a lovely afternoon with the owner and founder of Piedra Creek Winery, Margaret. She and her husband started the winery and the effort and attention they have put into this creation is amazing. The wines were delicious and we can't wait to share this with you. NOTE: The audio quality on this episode is not the best. We HAVE taken steps to make sure we only bring you the best quality audio in the future. However, by the nature of recording on the fly, sometimes things don't go as planned, and we're not able to control the outside elements or record in a perfect studio environment each time. We hope that the trade off of getting to hear the inside scoop makes up for it. Happy Tasting! -Jamie & Chenise

Episode 4 - Croma Vera Wines
This week we stopped in at Croma Vera Wines, conveniently located in San Luis Obispo proper. Just a quick run down Broad Street before it turns into Highway 227, Croma Vera is the perfect gateway to Edna Valley, or just a great spot to relax after work on a weekday! If you stop in, check out our top picks: the Albariño, for white wine lovers, and the Revelación blend, for you red wine drinkers! Convenience and the unique grapes (Croma Vera focuses on Spanish varietals) are the big draws here. Interested in tasting here for 1/2 off? Of course you are! Stay tuned to our social media this week as we'll be giving away opportunities to taste at Croma Vera!

Episode 3 - Autry Cellars
The third episode of our podcast takes us to Autry Cellars in Edna Valley. We spent some time on a lovely Sunday afternoon getting to know the winemaker and owner. A surprising gem this stop is probably the one that stands out most in our minds, so far. This is a true, authentic, experience. An off the grid, off the beaten path, glimpse into what wine tasting used to be more like- unassuming, not pretentious, focused just on wines. We hope you enjoy this episode!

We are back with a second episode! That's right, we haven't given up yet. This time we give you an inside look at the tasting experience at Saucelito Canyon in Edna Valley. The specialty here is actually Zinfandel grown in the Arroyo Grande valley, so a little different than some of the other stops in Edna.
