True Myth Winery
A specialty appellation winery, True Myth produces wines made of varietals from specific regions along California’s Central Coast. We grow the fruit for our brightly tropical Chardonnay in the Edna Valley, the coolest wine region in the state, and our gutsy bold Cabernet Sauvignon is from the distinctively warmer Paso Robles region only about 30 miles to the north. Both wines are rich and delicious, each speaking to the diversity of San Luis Obispo County.
Owned by the Niven family; pioneers of the Edna Valley AVA, farmers of the oldest continually harvested vines in the region, and previous owners of a Paso Robles Cab ranch. We have been a part of San Luis Obispo County’s farming history for more than four decades. View all True Myth Wines
About Central CoastView a map of Central Coast wineries
The largest of California's wine growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of California's wine. The district sprawls out, covering most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara. Smaller sub-AVAs of the Central Coast include Monterey Bay, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains and many others.
Notable FactsGrape varieties range from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. Some Central Coast wine is generic, bulk wine that contributes to the high production numbers of the area. But many winemakers and wineries, particular in some of the smaller AVAs, are small production artisans, creating unique and high-quality wine. The great thing about the Central Coast is its diversity - you're able to find a number of grape varieties and styles at a number of different price points.
About CaliforniaIt's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.

Pleasing aroma of citrus fruit wafted to my nose just pouring it into the glass. Vanilla, oak and pineapple on the nose. Creamy texture with hints of cantaloupe, ripe juicy pear, vanilla and oak. Medium to full bodied. More of a "with food" wine than an stand alone easy sipper.
