Committed to providing fresh pours, the winetenders of Gather Wine Bar uncork only 25 to 35 of their carefully curated central-coast wines each week. Knowledgeable staff can recommend a bottle for customers to pair with charcuterie plates, flatbread pizzas, and gourmet pub snacks such as bacon-wrapped dates. Alternatively, themed wine flights can provide a cross section of a single varietal or eclectic tastes from an array of vines. Live music acts and singles events create an upbeat atmosphere on many nights, and catered parties can gather small groups around a fire pit or feed 100 or more people with unlimited appetizers from the bar.
At Roll Out the Barrels, more than 20 San Luis Obispo wineries uncork their aromatic ambrosias in a bacchanal of cultivated events and self-guided tours. Bopping across a backdrop of rolling grapevine-enveloped valleys, passport holders visit their choice of vintners in a self-guided tour, exploring wineries including Claiborne & Churchill, Per Bacco Cellars, and Salisbury Vineyards while reaping benefits such as complimentary wine tastings, special discounts on purchased spirits, and tattoos of favorite grape varietals. After checking in at the Baileyana Winery, Groupon holders raise a commemorative wine glass for a series of reserve barrel tastings, let palates alight on a panoply of savory food pairings, or succor other senses with entertainments spanning from live music and local art to wine discussions and chair massages. Events unfold on Saturday and Sunday.
