San Luis Obispo Vintners Association announces their 21st Annual Rockin’ Harvest Celebration, November 4th – 6th. The Grand Tasting and Auction will take place on Saturday, November 5th from noon – 3 at the beautiful Avila Beach Golf Resort. Over 60 wineries and restaurants from the San Luis Obispo region are featured in the scenic seaside setting of the Avila Beach Golf Resort. Winemakers, local chefs and wine lovers share the fruits of their labor and passion for the art of winemaking. This auction is not your typical run of the mill auction. Be prepared to be entertained by the winemakers as they show off their lifestyle auction lots. Back by popular demand, this year’s auction will once again open up with live music from the Winemaker’s Band, ‘The Crushtones’, a group formed especially for last year’s Annual Event. For locals, and those from out of the area, this is a great time to explore San Luis Obispo and discover the culinary treasures of our unique region.
New this year, SLO Vintners will offer two additional event features in conjunction with the main event. A limited amount of “back stage passes” will kick off the day at 11AM. These special guests will get an hour early entrance to the event, and be able to sample special limited reserve wines, poured during this hour only. Early bird tickets are very limited.
Along with the new back stage pass, SLO Vintners wants the event to continue on Sunday. Come “party like a rock star” and hit the SLO Wine trail and let the party carry on at participating wineries, where they pull out the wine, food and entertainment once again at their individual wineries. Your ticket into the Grand Tasting from Saturday, gets you into the winery event on Sunday for FREE!!! All you have to do is wear your all access bracelet from the main event on Saturday and bring your wine glass with you as well on Sunday, and you’ll be ready to rock 2 days straight with SLO Wineries.
Harvest Celebration events take place all weekend and kick off on Friday night with a variety of winemaker socials and dinners that offer a great value. Wineries and restaurants partner to provide festive food and wine experiences at various winery and restaurant locations in San Luis Obispo. The weekend provides enthusiasts a chance to discover the distinct characteristics of San Luis Obispo while meeting the people that created the wines.
Tickets to the Grand Tasting Event on Saturday are $80 and are on sale now! This year private tables are back! A table of 8 is $800, and gets you a front row private table at the auction, and VIP service, and also gets you back stage passes for Saturday too. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable weekend in SLO Wine Country!
