Join the wine club!

The #1 travel magazine on the Central Coast is launching a new wine club to meet the discerning palates of visitors and locals alike.

The newly launched San Luis Obispo County Visitors Guide Wine Club will deliver four premium local wines for just $99, plus shipping, four times per year. The first shipment of the wine club will go out in April, with subsequent shipments in July, October, and January.

“Why join just one wine club when you have access to dozens of premium wines?” asks Scott Brennan, the magazine’s publisher. “Paso Robles won Wine Enthusiast’s ‘Wine Region of the Year.’ We have over 250 wineries in 11 AVAs with over 40 wine grape varieties. Our wine club members will get to taste a wide selection of the varietals, viticultural areas, and styles of wine making in the area,” he says.

“Visitors and friends are always asking me where to go wine tasting, so I thought I would put together a wine club of my favorites to send them throughout the year,” Brennan says.

Each quarter the publisher will taste dozens of premium local wines and hand-select four for the wine club. Each shipment will include one white wine and three red wines, some exclusive to club members. Shipments will be sent in January, April, July, and October.

“Whether you’re just discovering our wine country or already know it, have the best of Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo wines delivered to your door with our new wine club,” he says.

  • First 100 members will receive a free gift
  • Detailed tasting notes for each wine
  • Exclusive virtual tastings with winemakers
  • Discounted shipping offers for additional purchases
  • Referral bonuses for recommending new members
