Flavors and Flights

The Airport District is a picturesque slice of SLO, and that includes the amazing food and drink businesses in the neighborhood. 

Tolosa Winery is nestled in the volcanic hills of San Luis Obispo County, right by the San Luis Obispo Airport. Tolosa Winery is the ultimate destination for cool-climate varietals in California, especially Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The knowledgeable staff will lead you on a discovery of remarkable wines and more in an optimal environment to awaken your senses. A true wine tasting experience, right in the heart of SLO!

Looking for a more casual wine experience? Unwind, relax and appreciate life at Autry Cellars. This comfortable and laid-back tasting room focuses on the joys of wine appreciation. It’s a sensory journey, an afternoon break, and a space for education all in one.

For the best whiskey-tasting experience in town, we recommend Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills. If you’re seeking a broader range of spirits, you can enjoy a fine dining experience while overlooking the San Luis Obispo Airport. 

If you love beer and live music, look no further than SLO Brew Rock. Home to our 30-barrel brewhouse, canning line, and tasting room, The Rock features a taproom restaurant, catering kitchen, and event space.

For the most authentic Ethiopian food to-go in San Luis Obispo, we recommend Ebony Ethiopian Cuisine. This one-of-a-kind restaurant offers organic, vegan, & gluten-free options.
