    Tim was amazing. He went above and beyond. The wines were amazing as well. I would definitely recommend wine tasting here not to mention it’s gorgeous. The sun was setting while we were there.

    Check the website for what the they have for the kids. The night we went they had city works night for the kids to check out all the city trucks and tractors and how they work. Really nice to include kids in. Lots of food and locals selling things they have made. Just have to find parking and your in.

    So fun to shop and wander around the grounds; the candy building had many unique things that we had to get. The oatmeal chocolate chip ice cream was awesome (big scoop). The canned goods were special and, if I could, I would have bought many more than I did. There was also a guy demonstrating spices that had “monkey” names, so we bought several containers. We took fun photos throughout the property. Get there early, especially on weekends.

    Some hair pin turns but the greatest views in the U..S.
    And I was in.a German car with new Pirelli tires. Really some tight squeezes.
    Next time I'll stop at the Citizen Kane castle.
    Pro tip: Highway 1 has a total of just over 656 miles, it is the longest state route in California

    We have visited nearly all of the California missions. Today, we were a tad late for the tour, but walked around the grounds. Then we opted to have dinner and went back after dark. Several homeless individuals were sleeping (or in sleeping bags) around the front of the mission. Made me a bit uncomfortable.

    Pretty much as you imagine a college campus to be. Lots of kids running around in shorts in January. Nice walking in the hills around the campus.

    Such a great experience. We are really out of shape so just took out time. Other people breezed by us. Just go at your own pace and enjoy the scenery!

    This is such a memorable and authentic experience for tourists to America! Our family loved our trip to the drive-in. The snacks are really reasonably-priced too.

    We just love this winery! We visit it every year with our 4 chihuahuas. They are SUPER dog friendly! The overall service, the wine, the views and the staff are simply stellar! Wolff Winery is a "must" stop if you are visiting the Edna Valley, make sure you put it on your list! We want to thank the owner's and the staff for taking such good care of us. We really appreciate you and will see you very soon!

    Tolosa's tasting room is located on a beautiful patio surrounded by their vineyards. The staff is knowledgeable and welcoming. They provide not only wonderful wines but the in-depth information about the wine. They have made the tasting experience not only relaxing, informative but a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

    I heard about this and didn’t plan to go see it. I just happened to walk by it. Not worth making a trip to see unless you like to look at chewed gum.

    If you, or your guests, want the WOW factor, this is the place to go. Outstanding views in a beautiful, modern tasting room. Outdoor tastings also available. Great wines that you won't find at the grocery store. So why not a '5' rating? I had to talk to 3 different people to try to arrange a table of 8 (3 of whom didn't drink) tasting. Only 6 allowed! Couldn't do it. So we made two separate bookings. When we arrived - no problem. Wasn't busy. They put us all together and we had a good time. Maybe a little too "corporate?" Gallo owns them.
    We made it worth their while and bought several bottles in addition to the tastings.

    When we got here there was quite a few people and not a lot of staff. They could have easily used that as an excuse for poor service, but just the opposite. Everyone was very friendly, very helpful (it was out first visit here) about the tasting options (not only great wines but some awesome ciders). We had heard they had peacocks and as soon as we arrived we could hear a couple of them and later saw a few around the yard. AS i said our waitress was very helpful with the tasting options and even was prompt to refill. Really one of the best wineries we visited in SLO. It's very informal, outside setting. Nice and relaxing, just and enjoy the view and great wine (only $15 for a flight of 4, very reasonable for quality wines. They have a apple Chardonnay that's really good and unique. I highly recommend visiting, if your in the area.
