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 condorshope.com to reserve your spot) ...

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
