Costa de Oro Winery
Named “the Most Unique Tasting Room on the Central Coast.”
The New Times named the Costa de Oro tasting room the most unique on the Central Coast. Find out for yourself why as you discover some of the finest wines from the Central Coast, created using the artistry of old-world winemaking styles and new-world grape growing practices. Enjoy estate Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays offering balance, harmony and complexity.
Costa de Oro was founded by Ron Burk and Bob Espinola, after they tried to grow vegetables on the same land where they realized it was made for wine grapes. They began producing grapes in the early 1990s, and today, it is made up of 20 acres of Pinot Noir and 10 acres of Chardonnay.
A natural-born grape grower, Ron’s son Gary continued with the family tradition and became Costa de Oro’s winemaker. Gary is also a musician, and he says there are many similarities between winemaking and making music. His technique is a mix of artistry and instinct to create elegant and memorable wines. Costa de Oro has received many awards for several of their wines, which you can now enjoy in their unique tasting room facing the Santa Maria mountains.
