During our two day stay in Cambria our lodging was at FogCatcher Inn located along the seashore. It was hard to find something not to like at the FogCatcher. Our room was just a stone throw from the breaking waves of the Pacific Ocean. The sound of the surf lulled us to sleep each night.
A gas fired fireplace, king size bed, refrigerator, micro wave and desk with wifi matched our view of the ocean. And the daily breakfast buffet was special as well.
If you are looking for wineries on the Pacific Coast Wine Trail Cambria is a good place to start since four of the wineries have their tasting rooms located on one block of the folky downtown area.
Most pleasing was our visit to Stolo Family Vineyards which includes 23 acres of vienyards, the winery, tasting room and picnic patio, all this only a few minutes from downtown Cambria.
Here we met General Manager Maria Stolo Bennetti, Winemaker Nicole Bertotti Pope and Tina Rocci of the tasting room staff.
With the tasting of their estate Burgundian wines we enjoyed a wonderful box lunch. The Stolo family has owned the land where the winery and vineyards are located in the Santa Rosa Valley for generations.
This was the second of the ten wineries that make up the Pacific Coast Wine Trail.
