Cheers to Roll Out the Barrels, a Fine Summer Tradition in Pismo Beach
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more scintillating way to ring in the summer than with fine wine and fine people in one of the finest locations on the Central Coast. For the 23rd year, San Luis Obispo County proudly hosts Roll Out the Barrels, a signature event where good vibes, great wines, and happy folks come together for four delicious days.
Get Those Blues on the Run
Roll Out the Barrels kicks off its long weekend– June 20-23, 2013 – with a Thursday night grand tasting. “Barrels in The Plaza” is held adjacent to the historic Mission in downtown San Luis Obispo. The treats prepared by local chefs for this event are artfully paired with SLO wines for some amazing taste explosions.
On Friday night, San Luis Obispo wineries take the wine and food tastings one giant step further, teaming up with area restaurants to offer a stunning selection of winemaker’s dinners, whatever your taste.
Available on Saturday and Sunday are two-day passports to over 20 SLO wineries, also offering wine and food pairings, as well as live entertainment, specials, and barrel and library wine tastings.
Keep Rolling Out the Barrel
For those prepared to keep the celebration rolling, Roll Out the Barrel event-goers can sustain the wine theme by visiting the tasting rooms in nearby Avila and Pismo Beach. Many tasting rooms also feature locally made premium olive oils, as well as handmade goods by local artisans.
If you have room for additional inspired wine and food pairings, Pismo Beach is home to an amazing array of local restaurants. If the wine list doesn’t draw you to Ventana Grill in Pismo, the panoramic ocean view should be one of your top reasons to patronize this eatery, whether for brunch, lunch, happy hour, or dinner. Giuseppe’s Cucina Italiana flavors Pismo Beach with authentic Italian fare; dig into a distinctive dish made with local, sustainable, and organic ingredients whenever possible.
