Heather Muran - San Luis Obispo Wine Region
For 23 consecutive years, our annual Roll Out The Barrels summer celebration has set the pace for good times, good vibes and good wines in San Luis Obispo County.
The festivities begin with a Thursday evening “Barrels in The Plaza” grand tasting adjacent to the historic Mission in downtown San Luis Obispo. Here, the wines of SLO Wine Country are served with artfully paired treats prepared by local chefs. Then, on Friday evening, our wineries team up with area restaurants to offer a selection of winemaker’s dinners to fit every taste.

Over the weekend, you will enjoy a two-day passport to more than 20 wineries offering wine and food pairings, live entertainment, exclusive specials, barrel and library wine tastings and more. Complete your 2-day adventure with our SLO Wine Country Shuttle Touring Ticket--our flexible touring schedule allows you to experience wine country at your leisure!   It’s never too early to mark your calendars for this signature SLO Wine Country event.
