We’ve been watching the Central Coast’s growing popularity as a wedding destination with eager anticipation. Its gourmet dining, plush accommodations and artisanal shops are attracting an upscale reputation, and Central Coast wines have won international recognition. Yet with all the gold medals and high style, the Central Coast retains its small-town friendliness, and locals have positively thrown out a red-carpet welcome to bridal couples from near and far. Recently we did our own Central Coast Wine Country investigation, and our tour of event-friendly wineries yielded a wealth of provocative options for you to sample:
Santa Barbara Wine Country Wedding Locations – wineries & vineyards
Paso Robles Wedding Locations – wineries & vineyards
Monterey Wine Country Wedding Locations – wineries & vineyards
Picturesque and slightly off the beaten path, the wineries of Santa Barbara County are both discreet and rewarding.
An extremely prolific wine-producing area, Paso offers its own micro-regions and the most variety of venue choices.
An agricultural oasis that’s perfect for world-class viticulture, the region boasts 9 distinct AVAs (American Viticulture Areas), stretching from Greenfield north to Moss Landing.
