Swirl by the sea: As you well know, the Avila Beach Resort will host a Harvest on the Coast harvest party at the beach this Nov. 3, where winemakers and local celebrity chefs will converge for a Grand Tasting and Wine Auction. This beachside grand tasting features more than 50 wineries and restaurants dishing out hand-crafted wines and cuisine, paired with live music. But did you know you can purchase an early admission ticket to get in at 11 a.m.? Get early access and enjoy exclusive library, large format, and reserve wines only available during the first hour, and stick around for an auction, featuring a broad selection of rare wines, culinary treats, and SLO Wine Country destination experiences (for info and tickets go to avilabeachresort.com) ... Speaking of harvest: GleanSLO is busy harvesting bushels of excess fall produce, including crisp apples! Help out and lend a hand in redirecting this bountiful crop to hungry bellies.
