for those with exceptional taste…

For years now, California’s Central Coast wine country has been on the radar of many serious wine enthusiasts. With over 400 world-class wineries that call San Luis Obispo County home, The Cliffs Resort is the perfect central location for exploring the Edna Valley, Arroyo Grande, Avila Valley and Paso Robles wine regions.

San Luis Obispo County has always been known for its sunny beaches and striking landscapes. With its oak tree shaded peaks, marshy wetlands, cattle-grazing hillsides and amber grasslands, the county is filled with a variety of environments. This diverse climate and terrain is the very thing that allows the area to produce such a remarkable variety of wines, now with worldwide notoriety. From the extended growing season of the cool, coastal region to the long, hot days and cool nights of inland Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County grows some impeccable grapes that create unforgettable wines.
