HEATHER MURAN - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, SAN LUIS OBISPO WINE COUNTRY ASSOCIATION - SLO WINE COUNTRY'S ROLL OUT THE BARRELS
The festivities begin with a Thursday evening “Barrels in The Plaza” grand tasting adjacent to the historic Mission in downtown San Luis Obispo. Check out the lineup of wineries and chefs who will be dishing out delicious pairings, and groove to our local gypsy swing band Hot Club of SLO. Then, on Friday evening, our wineries team up with area restaurants to offer a selection of winemaker dinners to fit every taste. These events will sell out soon, so make plans to purchase your tickets now!
Over the weekend, you will enjoy Passport to Wine Country, a two-day ticket to 28 wineries who will be opening their doors and dishing out wine and food pairings, live entertainment, and exclusive specials. Plus--you'll have to stay for Barrel Sample Sunday, where our wineries will be tasting and thieving straight from the barrels. Pick up your free SLO Wine Country wine tote and save all weekend long with our 6-Pack Sampler program, where every tasting room will be offering special discount package for you to take home.
