Cambria Winery & Vineyards Santa Maria Reviews
Cambria, yeah May 26, 2010
Cambria Winery sits in the beautiful Santa Maria Valley 10 miles east of the town of Santa Maria. The drive to the winery is as enjoyable as the winery itself. I must admit, we got turned around a time or two before finding the place. It sits alone in such a beautiful spot. Time at the tasting bar could be spent just gazing out of the large windows that are its background.
Cambria Winery is one of the larger wineries in the area. It is modern, clean with a beautiful tasting room. They have a wide variety of wines to taste as well as quite a few different gourmet products.
Inside a friendly wine staff will pour you 6 to 7 wines for tasting for about $10.00 and you can keep the glass. Great conversation goes a long way as well here. It seemed the more we all talked and took photos, the more wine they poured. They will also sell you a bottle of wine and you can take it out on the patio and enjoy it with your lunch or the cool breeze taking in the beauty of the Santa Maria Valley. I would suggest a bottle of the Julia’s Pinot or their 2007 Katherine's Chardonnay is a great little wine with big flavors. The nose is full of apples, peaches, lime blossoms and vanilla and it is very easy on the palate. You will notice that many of the wines are named after the daughters. It’s a wonderful thing.
They are open until 5pm and that gives you plenty of time to visit other wineries in the area.
