Cayucos Cellars is the quintessential small family winery. Owned and operated solely by a family of five, each may be found in the tasting room, pouring wine, interacting with those from far and wide, and always enjoying a good chat.
All of the wines produced by Cayucos Cellars are fermented using only the inherent abilities of wild yeast, and are aged for three to six years in neutral oak barrels before bottling. With a production of between five hundred and eight hundred cases of premium wine annually, they are able to indulge an incredible attention to detail in each bottle. Try their Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Syrah and a special late harvest Zinfandel.
The winery, located in an old dairy barn in the coastal hills above Cayucos, hides on a working ranch, thus it was prudent to place the tasting room in town to prevent anyone being flattened by their tractors. The tasting room is right on the main drag and all you need to watch for, while you taste, are surfers, beach strollers, and the occasional harbor seal.
