Wine Tasting
everyone want to retire into an activity where you can work 24/7, 365 days a year? Lucky for the wine- loving public Greg and Pamela did.
Educating and involving them- selves in food and wine, viticulture, and winemaking, and taking classes over the years, Pamela and Greg hit the road running, starting to make wine almost 15 years ago. By pur- chasing land and building a tasting room, which opened in 2019, they have slowly earned a reputation
for producing award-winning food-friendly wines and welcoming visitors with their infectious smiles and hospitality.
Greg oversees all aspects of the vineyard and winemaking, while Pamela is intricately involved in the blending process, as she has an exceptional palate, finely honed through her years of food and wine preparation and education.
Depending on availability, a typical tasting will consist of four reds (including their medal-winning Pinot), with two whites. Selections include wine from both estate- grown fruit and fruit sourced from specific vineyards.
Wine, food, fun, and community
In addition to welcoming visitors and wine club members to their tasting room, Seven Angels also offer:
• Monthly wine and music events featuring local talent
• Special food and wine pairings
• Charcuterie platter to compli- ment your tasting
They are also active in various charities supporting organizations such as Alzheimer’s Association of SLO with a wine and music event held a couple of times a year with a 17-piece jazz-swing band, Precious Life Shelter in Orange County and serving as the official wine sponsor of the annual Congressional Cup at the Long Beach Yacht Club.
