Raise a Glass

The Central Coast Team | November 14, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

Harvest time is here! Pumpkins, festivals, hayrides, scarecrows…does it get any better?


If you love your vino, then yes it does. September happens to be California Wine Month, and here on the Central Coast, wine is a big deal.


Nearly 100,000 acres of lush rolling hills, rural back roads, and gorgeous coastline play host to hundreds of local wineries. Considered a premier wine region, it’s no wonder that our agricultural landscape attracts the world’s finest vintners.


Each fall, wine enthusiasts worldwide descend upon our stretch of heaven. Discerning tastes anxiously awaiting a divine pinot noir, chardonnay, or syrah.


Don’t relax with that glass of wine just yet. There’s plenty of time to sip and savor.


Get ready to crush your wine experience…and a vat of poor, unsuspecting grapes. Channel your inner Lucille Ball and challenge your other half to a grape-stomping showdown!


Wanting something a little more civilized? How about a vineyard tour or trying your hand at harvesting grapes off the vines. Or perhaps you’ve received a coveted invitation to a private farm-to-table winemaker dinner.


No doubt, you’ll pick up a bottle or three of your beloved wines to take home. Don’t be surprised if your passion gives way to an unexpected wine refrigerator purchase. After all, those precious bottles need a special home of their own.


But where will that sacrificial appliance or cabinet go to make room for your new indulgence? Have no fear, we have a bright, shiny–and smart–storage option in the heart of charming Arroyo Grande.


So, grab those picnic baskets and uncork your favorite wines as we celebrate California Wine Month on our stunning Central Coast!
