Get with the season!



The wildflowers aren't here yet, but they're coming thanks to all of this seemingly endless rain! You can celebrate their coming at Condor's Hope Vineyard's Wine & Wildflowers Celebration on March 30 from noon to 5 p.m. in the Cuyama Valley. Join farm owners Robbie Jaffe and Steve Gliesman and enjoy a locally sourced luncheon (including a Dutch oven medley of your choice of chicken or vegetable, Gliesman's famous coleslaw, chocolate-zin cakes, and Jaffe's Dutch oven fruit crisp) paired with Condor's Hope wines, a wine tasting of their dry-farmed and organic wines, a vineyard tour, and a botanical wildflower tour. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Los Padres ForestWatch (visit to reserve your spot) ... Go on a field trip with the Wine History Project of San Luis Obispo County on March 11 around 5:30 p.m.! Meet at the Filipponi Ranch Tasting Room in San Luis Obispo, where Herb Filipponi, the son of a Swiss-Italian immigrant, will share the history of his family-operated dairy and attendees will discuss changes to the industry and taste some traditional Swiss-Italian foods. If you're feeling extra festive, you can even pair all of that with a glass of Filipponi Ranch wine. A $10 contribution is appreciated, and you should RSVP to Δ
