About This Winery
San Luis Obispo-- Taste award winning wines in a elegantly restored schoolhouse just off highway 101 near Avila Beach.
Looking west from US 101 near Avila Beach, is the historic 1907 Avila Valley Schoolhouse and now home to Salisbury Vineyards. After five years of restoration the schoolhouse makes for a great place to enjoy the wines of the Salisbury family or catch one of their entertaining events.
See John Salisury’s “Ask the Farmer” article.
The Tasting room is dominated by a large rectangular wooden tasting bar where visitors can sample Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and a number of specialty Pinot Noir wines, including Pinot Naturale™ and Rosea di Pinot Noir™. Wines are made at local wine making facilities from Central Coast grapes including their nearby 51 acre Avila Vineyard. You can taste and roam through the adjacent art gallery where high end works of art are displayed. The place has a relaxed but elegant ambiance.
This is a family affair where daughter and son-in-law run the tasting room operation and provide insights to their nearby Avila Vineyards. A protected patio with tables and chairs is available for picnicking and relaxing. There are frequent concerts and events taking place year round in their patio. Call for details. For nearby accommodations see San Luis Obispo hotels.↑ Less
