Santa Maria Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA):
The Central Coast’s most historic wine lives in the Santa Maria Valley. Our AVA has the oldest appellation in the area and nearly two centuries of experience in growing grapes. We’re especially known for our Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and the casual environments where they are served. National Geographic recently named Santa Maria as one of the 25 happiest cities in the US and we have a sneaking suspicion why; because we take life with a grain of salt, we believe our finest pinot is best paired with blue jeans, and above all, we treat our visitors like family. While we’re proud that the caliber of our wine prompted the Travel Channel to name Santa Maria Valley one of the top 10 cities for wine snobs, you should know, going in, we aren’t the type that sips with our pinkies in the air. Come as you are, and experience the fun and casual Santa Maria Valley Wine Country for yourself.
