Sparkie made friends while exploring the wine tasting room of this business in Santa Maria that is located just off Highway 101.
Gary Burk opened it in 2006 on the site where his family’s strawberry stand once stood. Strawberries and other marketplace goods can be bought there.
There is live music every weekend and Wine Downs on Friday nights with food, wine and music. Pinot noirs and Chardonnays are made from grapes grown in the family’s vineyards. Grapes are also sourced from other Central Coast vineyards to produce their wines.
