"Beer is made by men, wine by God."Martin Luther
Team Phenix is spending the week out west visiting my family. My brother had the good sense to settle in the Central Coast of California, just north of San Luis Obispo, so that's where we're headed.
Billy and I were married here 15 years ago, and I love the time we have with family in the physical environment of my home state. Most people know the beauty of Northern California and the fantastic climate of Southern California, but the Central Coast is usually overlooked.
Imagine "Napa Valley on the coast with the feel of a college town." A nice combination, right?
Better still, the local vineyards are accessible, non-stuffy, fun places to learn about wine. Watch this local promotional video to get a feel for the place!
Next time you're planning a trip to California, think about getting off the beaten trail. If, as Martin Luther poetically offers, wine is made by God, then the Central Coast is definitely God's country.
And, if you've been here before, where do we need to go this year?!
