Vines, forks, and farmers



On the move: Il Cortile Ristorante and La Cosecha Bar + Restaurant in Paso Robles has announced the launch of a new gourmet food truck! Called simply "The Truck," this mobile restaurant will allow Chef Santos MacDonal to stage intimate private dinners, pop-ups, and receptions in the North County, from the beaches to the vineyards ... Meet the men and women behind the wine you love at Pappy McGregor's New Wine Wednesday events. Each week, Pappy's will feature a Paso Robles winemaker who will be on hand pouring and talking about their wines (plus, every fourth Wednesday will feature a local distiller and/or brewer). The June 6 event will feature winemaker Sterling Kragten of Cass Winery (go to for more). Farmers online: Slow Money SLO is starting an online support community to enable broader farmer-to-farmer communication (and no, it's not your average Facebook group). Wanna join or learn more?
