  • About
    Overlooking a breathtaking bay, beside Highway 1 and across from the iconic Hearst Castle, our San Simeon tasting room is a must-visit destination. While the historic Sebastian's General Store undergoes an extended restoration, our San Simeon tasting room has been relocated to a larger, seaside building across the street. With soaring ceilings, plentiful seating, and an accompanying cafe, our new tasting room is the perfect place to stop on your way along the Pacific Coast Highway. Enjoy excellent wine and a bite to eat inside or at our dog-friendly outdoor tables with sweeping views of the bay.
