We found lots of things to do when we wandered along the Embarcadero at Morro Bay. We said hello to the seals at the Aquarium, looked over the the sailing ship, Lady Washington, docked at Sub Sea Tours, peeked into the Skateboard Museum, and found the Chateau Margene Tasting Room.
Here we met the most personable and knowledgeable Cate who told us about the winery which began in 1997. The Winery is located in Creston and there is a tasting room there as well.
El Pistolero is one of marketed wines and it is founded on the legend of an early California settler. We thought the 2014 El Pistolero Chardonnary was outstanding, produced from Santa Lucia Highlands grapes.
The El Pistolero 2011 Meritage was one of the best wines we tasted on the entire trip.The wine showed its three years in oak barrels with delicate flavors and soft tannins and a bargain in its price range.
Chateau Margene is one of the ten wineries on the Pacific Coast Wine Trail.
Just a few steps away from the tasting room was The Galley Seafood Grill and here we had a splendid lunch while admiring the view of the Bay and Morro Rock from our table.
We then checked into the Inn at Morro Bay and entering our room was once more greeted with a splendid view of the Bay, Waterfront and the famous rock. We will have a lot more to say about this resort.
