The Edna Valley, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, winds for a dozen miles from Arroyo Grande to San Luis Obispo off State 227. For more area information, contact the San Luis Obispo County Visitors & Conference Bureau ( www.sanluisobispocounty.com, 800/634-1414, or 805/541-8000).

The San Luis Obispo Vintners & Growers Association ( www.slowine.com or 805/541-5868) publishes an excellent free map and guide (available throughout the valley) with detailed information on tasting-room hours and tours. May 4-8, the vintners association holds its annual Roll Out the Barrels event (tickets from $10; contact the association for details), which features tastings, a San Luis Obispo wine and restaurant tour, and barrel tastings of future offerings from most Edna Valley wineries.
