The beach is so beautifully deserted this time of year, isn't it? Ditch the tourists and head to Pismo Beach this October for a taste of pickpocket, adversary, or perhaps a little fool's errand. No, these aren't swanky new cocktails made with ingredients you've never heard of—they're wines, of course! Sans Liege
—known for their spunky tasting room in Paso's Tin City
—has opened a second equally eclectic location in Pismo Beach. This is the place to enjoy bold beautiful Rhone wines
that are as independent as their names suggest. Love grenache, mourvedre, syrah, and viognie
r? Into a laid back vibe that feels totally breezy? Want to sample the best grapes grown from Santa Barbara and Los Alamos to Santa Maria and Paso Robles? Grab those flip-flops, a pair of shades, and get gone. Cheers to the locals!
Open Sunday through Thursday, noon to 6 p.m. And Friday and Saturday from noon to 8 p.m.; 870 Price St., Pismo Beach; sansliege.com. Δ
