California’s Central Coast and the Paso Robles Wine Region are popular destinations for both locals and tourists. With beautiful year round weather, beaches, vineyards, and nearly 200 local wineries it’s no wonder our county is a popular place on the map. Many visitors come for wine tasting weekends, but there’s a new and ever growing popularity for hard cider and since the Central Coast has some rising stars in the cider industry, there are even more reasons to visit—or buy property and live the Central Coast lifestyle all year long.


The popularity and growing audience for local ciders has given rise to the first Central Coast Cider Festival to be held at the Atascadero Pavilion on the Lake. The festival features over 15 small craft cider producers, music, and a classic English pig roast.


For those just learning about cider, local producers, such as See Canyon in San Luis Obispo and Reef Points in Morro Bay, use local apples and ferment the apple juice. The process utilizes both the natural yeasts found on the fruit and those in the environment. Fermentation is carefully monitored and then the ciders are aged in natural wooden casks, including oak and re-purposed Bourbon casks. This final step in the cider making process creates nuanced flavor profiles in the final product and is one of the reason that people all over San Luis Obispo County are developing a taste for local ciders.


Living on California’s Central Coast offers an opportunity to enjoy a high quality lifestyle, which is one of the reasons why home buyers are looking to buy homes. Atascadero, Templeton, and Paso Robles have homes for sale that are within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, local entertainment, and events. Many people who are attending the Central Coast Cider Festival will enjoy walking to the event from their own home—clearly, something worthy of a toast.
