Impeccable grapes, memorable wines

Whether you are a wine novice or happen to be a sommelier, everyone will enjoy the wine tasting opportunities throughout the Central Coast. In 2013 our area was awarded “World’s Best Wine Region” by Wine Enthusiast magazine.

The philosophy that exceptional wines can be approached by all tasters shines bright in over 450 wineries from Arroyo Grande to Paso Robles. Intimate tasting rooms, beautiful outdoor areas, and laid-back settings invite you to discover your ideal wines.

Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort and Spa is centrally located for exploring Edna Valley, Arroyo Grande, Avila Valley, and Paso Robles wine regions. There are numerous excellent wine tours available, with pick-up at our resort. Onsite wine experiences are also available so you don’t have to leave the premises to enjoy award-winning central coast excellence.
