Wine Tasting

The Best of California Wine Tours Awaits You

Picturesque San Luis Obispo County boasts of two distinct wine regions, and both attract worldwide acclaim. This area is among the best of California wine country and the Embarcadero Inn is your California wine country hotel. Situated between the towering Los Padres National Forest on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other, the diverse geography of the area creates specific micro-climates that provide ideal conditions for growing premium wine grapes -- not to mention the perfect climate for enjoying an afternoon wine tasting tour!

In the San Luis Obispo Wine Region just south of Morro Bay, the cool climate and marine sediment in the soils of the valley combine to produce the most highly regarded, rich, buttery Chardonnay grapes in the nation. To the north of Morro Bay, in the Paso Robles Wine Region, the long, hot summers and the chalk, limestone hillsides play an important part in producing the high quality fruit that turns specialty grapes into award winning wines.

More than 80 wineries welcome visitors to sample prize-winning selections and current releases. In addition to year-round tasting, many wineries offer wine-lovers special dinners, concerts, harvest parties, and other events, and some offer tours explaining the wine-making process in detail.

The Embarcadero Inn is your California wine country lodging headquarters -- perfectly situated between the Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo Wine Regions. Just a short drive north or south will lead you to some of the world's finest wineries. Local California Wine Country tour operators can assist you in planning a tour for your group. Or Do-It-Yourself with a self-guided local California wine tasting tour. Either way, you’ll be glad to end your day in the comfort of the best of California wine country lodging -- The Embarcadero Inn at Morro Bay.
