Just in time for the summer wine touring season, we are excited to announce the newly updated and expanded Santa Maria Valley wine country booklet, which is available free throught the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor & Convention Bureau.

The free 16-page glossy booklet is available directly through the Chamber. To obtain a copy, just call (805) 925-2403 or stop by the Chamber at 614 South Broadway in Santa Maria. The booklet is also viewable and printable by clicking here.

The booklet, which is titled Santa Maria Valley Wine Country: A Guide to Local Wineries and Restaurants, offers a new cover and layout; a larger map; expanded sections on Santa Maria Valley restaurants; local wine and food shopping; wine pairing suggestions with Santa Maria Style barbecue; wine packages and tasting tours; and a wine events calendar.

We’ll take this opportunity to remind you that the Santa Maria Valley is home to Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s number one wine on its most recent list of Top 100 Wines, and home to the upcoming first annual Chardonnay Symposium. So come out and discover what wine writer Steve Heimoff calls “an insider’s secret.”
