Not sure where to start when it comes to local wine? The SLO Chamber of Commerce has you covered.

The organization has started selling 42 different local wines from 12 Chamber member wineries, including Ancient Peaks, Pomar Junction, Tolosa and Chamisal. All wine will be sold at the same price customers would get if they were purchasing it directly from the tasting room, the Chamber said.

According to visitor center manager Dusty Colyer-Worth, the Chamber launched the sales with the first wineries who responded to the opportunity. Colyer-Worth said they wanted to feature a balanced variety of wines that showcase the region.

According to Colyer-Worth, the Chamber started selling wine to “provide a prominent storefront to showcase Chamber member products.” Colyer-Worth added that they hope the wines help enhance the visitor experience too — whether visitors use the Chamber as their introduction to SLO County wine or stop by for some on their way home.

The Chamber has set up a dedicated wall in the Visitor Center that features the wine.
