    Sip in SLO: Tasting Pass Program
    Wine
    Study up on a quartet of regional wineries during February and March via a $40 pass.

    FEBRUARY... can be fertile and fecund, for sure, on the ready-to-bloom landscape front. True, it is still the frosty heart of winter, and plants and flowerbeds have gone a bit fallow, but then? Leafy shoots begin to show during the month, and the random petal, and our thoughts turn to all of the gifts of greenery that the wilder world bestows during the weeks before spring truly revs up. If you want to embrace February or March while embracing your love of leafy things, and your love of leafy things also incorporates the leafy vines found in wine country, there's a way to celebrate the season of growth 'round San Luis Obispo Wine Country. The vino-perfecting region has a new Sip in SLO tasting program, and it welcomes chard fans and cab mavens and aficionados of all sorts of libations for a taste-around at four wineries. That's right: Purchase the pass and then proceed to a quartet of wineries and see (and imbibe) what they have to offer. There are...

    SIXTEEN WINERIES IN ALL, including Autry Cellars, Cutrozzola Vineyards, Biddle Ranch Vineyard, and a bouquet of other awesome spots for oenophiles. You'll be able to select the four wineries you want to taste at, as well as the date you want to head out into the SLO-tacular hills and valleys. A nice bit to a nice program? Any date in February and March is available. Another nice bit to a nice program? If you miss it in February and March, or you do it and absolutely love it, it'll come back around in November and March. To eye all of the participants, and line up your chosen four and date, you don't need to go to the Central Coast. Well, not ASAP, anyway; start here and start planning your leafy, weather's-warming, spring-is-coming outing among the soon-to-be leafy vines of SLO Wine Country.
