We came upon Alapay by chance on our visit to Avila Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed it because Scott, the owner of the vineyard, was serving the wine! We hadn't seen this at any other wine tasting - and there were many! It seemed like we...More

We were here 5 years ago and decided to return. Very good wines ranging from $30 and up that we tasted. Tasting fee is waived with purchase. They have a very good deal to join their wine club so check out their website (alapaycellars.com).

Scott's wines can' t be beat. He has an extensive number of varietals and we love them all. Alapay's wine club is very generous with flexible pick up party dates. The tasting room is a fun upbeat experience with an aquarium vibe.
