Santa Margarita and Savor the Central Coast

Savor the Central Coast happens this weekend in the charming and historic little hamlet of Santa Margarita.  This is a fun wine and food event for certain but if you are heading there you must take the tour given by the docents at Santa Margarita Rancho which is the site of the event.  Also try to get a peek inside the large barn that wraps around and protects the ‘assistancia’ that is still very much standing.  It is a beautiful historic creation that is worthy of a Ralph Loren ad!  Assistancia loosely translates as the midway Spanish Mission that once supported the Missions of San Luis Obispo and San Miguel. The ranch house is a bit of the old west and I can just picture being on the ranch 100 years ago……enjoying the pristine vistas that flavor this gorgeous county.
