We first had a bottle of C&C's Gewurztraminer at the Old Port Inn restaurant on the Avila Pier. Great wine pairing with seafood. We are now members of their winery and have enjoyed dinner and music events. Try the Port. A nice more subtle take on this standard.

There are many good wineries in the SLO area, and this is one of the best. They have a really good port. It is on our list when we are taking friends wine tasting.

Chaiborne & Churchill Winery, 2649 Carpenter Canyon Rd, 805-544-4066. This winery was recommended to us for their German wines. Open 11-5 daily. We did 2 tasting at $5 (free with purchase) for 5 wines. We were offered a bit more, but passed as our schedule is full of wines and driving. This is a family operation. Husband and wife were...

A pioneer in sustainability in their winery. Focus on German varietals (riesling, gewurtztraminer). Best wines are the dry rieslings.

Their Dry Gewurtzraminer is what they are most famous for but we have never had a a wine we didn't like. This is a family run business and they treat their customers like gold. If you are a club member you can expect the most amazing excellent service imaginable. We are sick and tired of companies that only reward new... More

If you drive in from the coast on Price Canyon Rd. The first stop you hit is Edna Road. Just a few yards down on the right is Clairborne & Churchill. They excell in German style white wines. Taste they all, you won't be disappointed.
