Welcome to Edna Valley & Arroyo Grande Valley

In the Edna and Arroyo Grande Valleys, taste a whole new world of wine. Nestled only four miles from the beach, the Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande Valley are home to over 30 wineries. As always in our part of California, the experience and vibe are unpretentious and easygoing. Specialties in the region include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and aromatic white varieties like Albariño, all of which are known for exceptional balance due to coastal growing conditions. Most tasting rooms are open daily during business hours, though a few require appointments. Check the SLO Wine website for detailed information, including a map and specialized itineraries, tasting fees and varieties offered.

If you want to find activities in fresh water, visit the Lopez Lake Recreation Area. Lopez Lake is a favorite spot for adventurists, nature-lovers, and outdoor fun. For water fun, enjoy Lopez Lake’s 22 miles of shoreline, or try the Mustang Water Park, with two 600-foot waterslides, a 38-foot “Stampede” inner tube ride, toddler pool with mini-slides, waterfalls, and cabanas. Fishing, boating, and jet skiing are also popular in the lake. Adventure enthusiasts can’t miss the Vista Lago Adventure Park where sky-high obstacle courses of varying degrees of difficulty, a free fall platform, and three zip lines totaling over 1,800 feet in length will get hearts pumping! The area offers 350 campsites, including primitive, electrical and full hook-up sites, as well as cabins that sleep up to six people. Many miles of trails at Lopez Lake cater to hikers, equestrian and mountain bikers. For views of the lake and even the ocean on clear days, check out the Duna Vista Loop Trail, which is 7 miles long and suitable for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.
