November 4th, 2023
2 – 5 pm
Taste amazing wines, all grown here in the SLO Coast AVA. There will be plenty of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but there’ll also be award-winning Albariño, Grenache, Tempranillo, Syrah, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and more! All will be accompanied by delicious Santa Maria-style BBQ pairings by Goldland BBQ, featuring only the best local ingredients. Live music by local jazz-pop band, Honey Boys, will make for a memorable afternoon. Vintner’s Vault will be demonstrating how wine barrels are brought up to the appropriate toast level.
VIP Rare & Reserve Tasting
1 – 2 pm
Our member wineries will be pulling out their finest older vintage and limited-production wines for you to taste. Hang out with the winery principals and winemakers to taste their reserve wines, mature wines from large-format bottles, winemakers’ favorites, some experimental bottlings, and maybe even a few surprises! These are the very best, most exclusive and hardest-to-find wines made from grapes grown in the SLO Coast AVA!
Note: those of you who attended last year might recall our much-loved mystery wine 3-packs – for $75 you’ll go home with three bottles of SLO Coast AVA wines in a convenient carrying box. All bottles are donated by our members. It’s a fun way for you to discover a new winery, vineyard, or grape variety.
