In honor of California Wine Month, we will be running a series featuring wonderful wineries on the Central Coast. This week, we are focusing in on wineries with food options. Enjoying excellent wine with perfectly paired food is a tried-and-true way to while away a weekend afternoon.
Baileyana, Tangent, & True Myth Tasting Room
Baileyana Winery is beautifully situated among the vines and rolling hills of San Luis Obispo’s Edna Valley American Viticultural Area. Owned by the area’s pioneers, the Niven family, Baileyana’s charming school house tasting room is home to several distinctly Edna Valley varietals, as well as an optional charcuterie pairing. A tasting at Baileyana features a wine flight across several of the Niven’s labels, including Baileyana, Tangent, and True Myth, for a very reasonable fee. A wine tasting can be paired with a cheese and charcuterie board with a reservation. Guests can enjoy a game of bocce ball to top off a delicious day of wine and cheese. Also featuring visits from Hurricane Kitchen Foodtruck in honor of Sunday Funday, Baileyana provides a beautiful marriage of wine and food no matter what time of year!
As far as wineries with food go, Sextant takes the cake (pun intended). With a fully operational deli, you will find your fill of delicious, award-winning red wines and spectacular food from The Gourmet Deli on site. Stop in to Sextant‘s beautiful Edna Valley tasting room for a great lunch a quick wine flight. After all, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
