The sounds of smooth jazz welcome you into the classy and relaxed, tasting room of Chateau Margene. The small tasting room is located at the east end of the winery/barrel room. Enjoy world class Cabernet Sauvignon blends and our Mooney Family Pinot Noirs (Santa Lucia Highlands). Though the tasting room is cool and relaxing, you may not be able to stay inside long as the beautiful outdoor patio and picnic area beckon you to come out and explore.
The jazz follows you onto the patio where you can sit back and relax, and enjoy the beautiful views of the hillsides, as well as the immaculately landscaped yard surrounding the patio. You may find some four legged company out on the patio as Chateau Margene has three winery dogs. Tess (140 lb. Great Pyrenees), Beau and Rex would just love for you to come join them on the patio and if it’s a really warm day, they may just follow you back on into the tasting room.
Chateau Margene is a family run, micro-winery, specializing in the production of handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet blends. Owners Michael and Margene first began searching for the perfect location to produce wines in 1990, and finally found what they were looking for in 1998. Also being poured are the Mooney Family Pinot Noirs.
Headed to the Coast? Stop by Chateau Margene: A Family of Wines, our second tasting room at 845 Embarcadero Road in beautiful Morro Bay. There we feature our El Pistolero wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir & Chardonnay) along with our lineup of Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars.
