Something For Everyone - Barrel to Bottle Explores the Central Coast

Something For Everyone - Central Coast Wine Values

This week, Alicia has nine wines that showcase the variety and incredible value of California's Central Coast. 

While some regions are becoming less and less accessible from a pricing standpoint, Central Coast offers tremendous value with something for everyone. 

Monterrey County

San Luis Obispo County

Santa Barbara County

  • Margerum Sybarite Sauvignon Blanc 2022 – We’re leaving the northwest/southeast mountain range and into an area with an east/west range, that funnels all the cool air in. It’s quiet on the nose but it explodes on the palate. It’s a restrained wine but still has acidic zip.
  • Sandhi Pinot Noir 2021 – This wine is so earthy but equally very fruity and savory. They’re going for an old-world expression here, which is typical for Santa Barbara.   
  • Beckmen Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard – There really is something for everyone in the Central Coast, including a single-varietal Syrah. It’s meaty and spicy.
