Going to Calfornia - Sign Up for March 9th California Central Coast Virtual Wine Tasting

We are heading to California and may be heading to regions to taste wine you may not know just yet, but you will. For this tasting, we decided to stay away from the famed Napa and Sonoma and visit some other option inside the state which makes 80% of American wine. We are taking a journey to the Central Coast.

Curious? Intrigued? Excited for something new?  So are we.

Join us March 9th at 5pm ET virtually for the next Stay Luxurious Wine Journey – California’s Central Coast.

What are California Central Coast Wines Located?

It is probably where you think .... California's Central Coast links 250 miles of coastline vineyard into one vast American Viticulture Area (AVA) between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Spanning 30 sub-AVAs, the region's 100,000 acres of vineyard share a common thread: the west coast marine effect, which moderates warm temperatures during the growing season. Yet each vineyard represents dramatic differences in climate and soil, stitching together an incredibly diverse wine map.

We will cover lighter whites through unique red offerings. We also decided to find quality at a price point that will not break the bank either.  Sign up for March 9th to join us for just $19, and you can also purchase all 5 personally curated wines for approximately $120.

We will adventure into Paso Robles for a few wines and even taste one from a winery I visited recently. We will also diversify with a few other sub AVAs and also try unique blends, unique grapes, and taste a few wines that scored high with the “experts.” We can judge their decisions as we always do.

In our California central coast wine tasting we will sample a Grenache Blanc, a Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir, a Zinfandel and a GSM blend too. Three reds and two whites make up our selection for this tasting.  You can also purchase all 5 personally curated wines for approximately $120.
