Located in Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County, Firestone Walker Brewing Company is renowned for crafting iconic pale ales and pioneering barrel-aged beers on the Central Coast of California. The brewery offers tours and has a tasting room with a shop featuring gear and apparel, as well as a taproom you can dine in which serves upscale pub fare.


CHAM_ChBrwn_hrz_lgoIn 1973 Chamisal Vineyards became the first winery to plant vines in Edna Valley, a gamble that paved the way for one of the most revered wine regions of California. Their Central Coast vineyard is named for the native, white-flowered Chamise plant that thrives on the property. Now planted to five grape varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Syrah and Pinot Gris, this exceptional estate vineyard is the centerpiece, source and inspiration of Chamisal’s bold and distinctive wines.
