Ca Central Coast Wineries

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a trip, found 2 wineries with gluten-free (and only gluten-free) snacks at their tasting bars!

Kynsi, Edna Valley (San Luis Obispo)

Small family winery, lovely flowers, Trader Joe's rice crackers as snacks. About 4-5 wines on offer, very good quality.

Sculpterra, Paso Robles

Family owned but pretty impressive, there is a sculpture garden with tables scattered about and park-like plantings. Big (but not huge) tasting room with estate-grown pistachios as the snack. The pistachios are excellent! Wines are fine but not amazing, their chardonnay was the best taste-for-value, reds were decently made but not compelling at the retail prices.

I always have plain (well, sesame unsalted) rice crackers along for wine tasting, since 99% of wineries use crackers of some kind as the bar snack. gluten-free snacks from the wineries not only is nice to see, it also means I can share a single tasting with my spouse without becoming the gluten cop!


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

Thanks so much for sharing that info! We are planning to be in that area next summer, and that's one less thing to worry about : )

Thanks!
