The weekend kicks off Friday, November 2nd with our “Crafted on the Coast” collaborative winemaker dinner featuring Executive Chef Heidi Hornikle of Flora + Fauna Catering, hosted at the beautiful Casitas Estate in Arroyo Grande. Then on Saturday, November 3rd, hit the coast at our Grand Tasting and Wine Auction, located beachside at Avila Beach Resort–featuring wine tasting, artisan foods, and live music by The Damon Castillo Band. All food, wine (and on-site event parking!) is included in your grand tasting ticket! The live auction features a broad selection of rare wines, culinary treats and SLO Wine Country destination experiences. We have auction table seating available for groups of 8 or 10, so you can place your stake at the auction. You’ll also receive complimentary food and wine service throughout the live auction (limited tickets available), plus you’ll have a chance to raise a paddle and support local charities in SLO County.
Grab your wineglass & wristband, and head out to the SLO Wine Country tasting rooms for free wine tasting all day Sunday, November 4th during our “Surf’s Up Sunday”. Each tasting room will feature free tastings, wine specials, live music and more. The best part of Sunday? It’s completely complimentary with your grand tasting ticket purchase! It’s the perfect time to stock your cellar for the holidays!
