In recent years, the Central Coast of California – Monterey, Paso Robles, and Santa Barbara in particular – have exploded in popularity for good reason: the area is no longer just a grape clearing house for the big wineries in the north. Small growers and small producers have perfected their crafts to make wines that are distinctive, delicious, and often better value than their counterparts in Sonoma and Napa. In this class, we will focus on the Central Coast of California, discussing why the climate is suited in many places to making acidic, fruity wines, and how each part of this vast area is doing something special. We’ll explore:
- Santa Cruz Mountains
- Monterey/Santa Lucia Highlands
- Paso Robles
- Santa Barbara County and its sub-regions
At the end of this class you’ll be ready to head out for your wine roadtrip through the Central Coast, tasting great wines as you go!
