The Foodie’s 5 Must See Wine Country Destinations

Called “Little L.A.” by locals, this Central Coast town boasts cool indie eateries and warm hospitality. Grab a sourdough croissant from Bob’s Well Bread Bakery fro breakfast, then fill a picnic basket with goods from the walk-in market at Bell Street Farm for an alfresco wine-tasting lunch at nearby vineyards. For dinner, hit the restaurant at the historic Old West-style 1880 Union Hotel (pictured) for craft cocktails and empanadas (one of the owners is Argentinean), or head to Full of Life Flatbread on weekends when they convert the bakery into a restaurant for unusual pizzas ( recent toppings included smoked beef tongue and bone marrow though they vary weekly). Bonus: Many of the local wineries have boutique tasting rooms in town; two of the best are Municipal Winemakers and Casa Dumetz Wines.
