From a historic standpoint, the central coast of California, home of incomparable Hearst Castle, is a very young wine region. But a few decades of winemaking magic has made it one of the most renowned regions on the planet. Central Coast wines are revered across the globe, and while the name may not be as familiar to some in far-off regions, the area’s centerpiece, legendary Hearst Castle, is a California icon that millions fantasize about visiting. This show is the prelude to an in-depth, first-hand look at this remarkable region. In a few weeks, we’ll take you to Hearst Castle marketing director Jim Allen and Molly Cano of the San Luis Obispo County Visitors and Convention Bureau. Plus, never a dull moment as we do a wine versus beer taste test with Gadget Guru, Matt duBow.
