About This Winery
Wine, food, family and fun is the philosophy at Morovino in Avila Beach, near San Luis Obispo. With the popular beach less than a block away, the mood is relaxed and fun, the venue is hip and the wine is divine. Owners David and Andrea Bradford work the tasting room every weekend and are happy to share their love for and knowledge of their limited-production Italian-style wines.
Morovino’s tasting flight is usually between 6 and 9 wines and their love of Italian varietals is evident. The flight usually includes one or two Pinot Grigios, Sangiovese, Barbera, Dolcetto and Riesling with a scattering of more recognized grapes like Syrah and Petit Sirah thrown in. Winemaker Andrea Bradford is celebrating her 6th crush this year. Numerous ribbons and awards, including a Double Gold Medal at the International Women’s Wine Competition and a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, point to the popularity of Morovino’s style with judges as well as consumers.
Morovino’s wine style is for crisp and fruity whites and dense, velvety reds. Wines are easy on the palate and created to be very food-friendly. Visit the tasting room on any given weekend and David and Andrea will delight in sharing food pairings and recipes with you. Take a bottle of Morovino wine out to dinner and most of Avila’s restaurants will waive their corkage fees.
The Morovino tasting room has a relaxed beach feel with abundant barstools and a comfortable living room style wine lounge. Guests enjoy relaxing in front of the fireplace on cool winter afternoons or enjoying wine by the taste, glass or bottle on the sunny patio that overlooks the shops of Landing Passage.
