california_sanluisobispo_harvestThe 23rd annual Rockin’ Harvest Celebration takes place in San Luis Obispo, California (map) November 1, 2 and 3, 2013.

The main event is the open air, ocean view “Grand Tasting and Auction” from noon to 3 p.m. November 2 at the Avila Beach Golf Resort (tickets are $85, or $95 if you want “in” an hour early). Attendees enjoy cuisine by local chefs paired with wines by the artisan winemakers of SLO Wine Country, plus live music by local indie-pop favorite, Fialta.

On November 1, Road Trips Foodies can become “roadies” for an afternoon and enjoy a “backstage” look at three SLO Wine Country wineries. Happening from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., this “Rockin’ Road Trip” (tickets are $50) takes attendees from vine to wine, teaching the art of winemaking through demonstrations and hands-on activities at Laetitia Vineyard & Winery, Talley Vineyards and Saucelito Canyon Vineyard & Winery. Space is limited at this “experience” event, which includes a luncheon and wine tasting.

There’s also a “Collaborative Winemaker Dinner” (tickets: $110) on from 6 to 9 p.m. November 1 at The Casitas Estate in Arroyo Grande. The dinner will consist of five courses by Chefs Russ and Heather Thomas of Two Cooks Catering, all paired with wines of SLO Wine Country.

November 3 is a winery open house day for all of those who attended Saturday’s Grand Tasting. All day “SLO Wine on Tour” features wineries offering complimentary tastings, food and live entertainment along with wine discounts and special offers.

The San Luis Obispo Wine Country is found on California’s Central Coast, where the wineries are an average distance of just five miles from the Pacific Ocean.
