Santa Maria Valley Byron Winery is a California Winery offering wine tasting and purchase of wines. Santa Maria Valley, located 300 miles south of Napa Valley, features mild winters combined with cool maritime temperatures perfect for slow ripening of grapes. The valley is formed by an east-west break in California's coastal range that includes direct exposure to the ocean. The water temperature in this region is the southernmost cold water current from Alaska.

 

This California Current flows from Alaska until being diverted out to sea at nearby Point Conception. What this means to the grapes and wine-growing efforts is that there's a cooling influence reinforced by deep, cold ocean waters rising to the surface, a localized phenomenon caused by the unusual configuration of the land, the direction of wind and the ocean currents. Not only is the weather ideal for grapes, other crops have thrived in the region for over 100 years and people find the climate to their liking, as well.

 

Combined with the types of soils and seasonal temperatures, Santa Maria Valley is the perfect spot for Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. Be sure to sample these wines in the many wine-tasting rooms throughout the region. Some charge a fee and some do not. CENTRAL COAST WINERIES < < < <
