Natural Coast Wine Fest is the first and only wine festival showcasing natural wines – grown and produced in California’s magical Central Coast ✨

You might be asking yourself “What the hell is a Natural Coast?” –  Well here’s what we are!

The Natural Coast showcases and celebrates the wineries and winegrowers promoting environmentally beneficial viticulture, low-impact winemaking, and socially conscientious business practices throughout California’s Central Coast. These producers make wine in a natural way, honoring the earth and forging a better path forward in the wine industry. Better vineyards, better wines, better Earth.

What does that mean? It means we’re inviting all the wineries we work with in our shop, Satellite, from our local (and favorite) growing region – California’s Central Coast!

Producer Entry Requirements:

  • For all wines, the majority of the fruit must come from vineyards in California’s Central Coast which includes the following counties: Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, & San Mateo
  • All wine must be farmed organically at a minimum. Whether certified or not, vineyards must be farmed without any synthetic pesticides. Certification from CCOF, Demeter Biodynamic, etc. welcome and appreciated
  • All wines must be fermented natively – whether spontaneously or using a pied-de-cuve. Sparkling wines may be accepted when fermented with non-native yeast if noted in the technical information.
  • No sterile filtration, no fining.
  • Absolutely no additives except for SO2 with a maximum total SO2 below 70 ppm, regardless of wine style
  • No magic techno-wizard winemaking tricks. This includes reverse-osmosis, cryo-extraction, spinning cone filtration, etc.
  • None of these rules are negotiable. Breaking any rules will result in a 3-year minimum ban from presenting at Natural Coast Festival events… and v. bad vibes!

What’s Included in My Ticket?
