California’s Central Coast is a vast, rugged landscape stretching from Santa Barbara north to Monterey Bay. It’s wild country with a gorgeous coastline and few towns. Wide open with fertile farming soil and abundant ranchland, this place attracted more than just farmers and cowboys it also attracted artists, rebels, seekers and bon vivants from the Bay Area and the Los Angeles sprawl. The confluence of their unique personalities put a stamp on the burgeoning wine region and today, rule-breaking and non-conformity are celebrated values. Four Vines honors the anti-establishment views of the Central Coast’s eccentric personalities. We make interesting wine, for interesting people.
A historical trail that links California’s missions, the El Camino Real or “Kings Highway” in Spanish, begins in San Diego and runs 600 miles north to Sonoma. Another name for this route could be the Wine Highway as it was the trail the Franciscan friars traveled bringing the first vinifera grape cuttings from Europe to California. The Central Coast was home to several missions, including San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, where the friars planted vineyards for the production of wine and brandy. Today the El Camino Real is lined by commemorative markers featuring tall shepherds crooks topped by large bells.
