The Santa Maria Valley is known for many things locally and regionally, but the flavors of Santa Maria are known worldwide. Santa Maria style tri-tip has become a popular barbeque style, being featured in intimate portraits of the Central Coast's purveyors of the traditional method, and in pre-packaged style in the meat cases of some of the largest grocery retailers.

What does the rich smoky flavor of Santa Maria tri-tip pair well with? Probably anything. But a great glass of red wine would probably be best. And the flavor of the beautiful wines produced here are easy to enjoy at Nagy Wines.

Nagy Wines owner and founder Clarissa Nagy spoke with Erin Gabel of the Santa Maria Valley Chamber about how she got into winemaking and her decision to start her business in the Santa Maria Valley as part of our ongoing business spotlight series.

While the sights and sounds of the Santa Maria Airport might be noticeable to most people, Central Coast Jet Center VP of Operations Chris Kunkle pointed out that many people might not truly understand the everyday economic impact of the CCJC. And they have been hard at work expanding that impact, both on other Santa Maria businesses and as a top flight aviation facility.
