Avila Beach, has been the home for Alapay Cellars since 2001. Located just steps away from the majestic Pacific Ocean in the quaint, beachside downtown, the Alapay Cellars tasting room is a popular destination for visitors. Owners Rebecca and Scott Remmenga founded Alapay, (which translates to “Heavenly” or “World-Above” in the Chumash Native American’s Samala language), and set upon a course in crafting high quality, French-oak, barrel-aged wines that are approachable and food friendly.
A visit to the Alapay Tasting Room offers guests an opportunity to peruse the wide selection of whimsical wine gifts and accessories, as well as the impressive salt water aquariums behind the bar, all while enjoying a wine tasting. Non-pretentious, with ample seating, and over a dozen wines to choose from, guests can find the perfect wine for any occasion to enjoy and spend a relaxing afternoon!
A tasting experience at Alapay leads you through the Central Coast wine growing region, where terroir tells the story of each wine, from a rich, buttery Chardonnay to the esoteric Lagrein, full of blackberry, spice and dark fruit flavors. A Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles and Reserve Zinfandel hailing from San Luis Obispo County are the perfect accompaniment for hearty dinners and can easily be followed with a nightcap of the Zinfandel Port, whose jammy flavors are perfect with a bite of your favorite dark chocolate. A new release from October is the winery’s flagship blend, Rebekah. Featuring a blend of Mourvèdre, Syrah and Zinfandel, the multi-layered wine is luscious, with a full-bodied flavor profile of dark and red berries and fruit, intertwined with peppery spice and notes of dried lavender. For upcoming gatherings, enjoy the delectable 2017 Late Harvest Moscato with dessert. Alapay Cellars also has a limited release Grand Cuvée Sparkling that will create a celebration of any occasion!
With a production of 5,000 cases, all Alapay Cellar’s wines are sold exclusively through the tasting room, with priority access to Alapay Wine Club Members, who receive two shipments annually at a fixed price of $180/shipment. Wine Club members receive complimentary wine tasting, discounts on wine and merchandise purchases and invitations to special events, including the annual winemaker dinners, bay cruises and exclusive wine club pick-up parties.
