Slow down for sipping: Didn't get enough summer wine fun into your calendar? That's a darn shame. Make a date for fresh vineyards and check out some cool tasting rooms while you're at it (like Halter Ranch or Derby Wine Estates in Paso Robles, which are both featuring live music this Aug. 25). On the other side of the Grade, you'll find a slew of fun wine-centric end-of-season events, too, including a festive grape stomp at Laetitia Vineyard in AG this Aug. 26. On Aug. 27, relax with a chill Sunday Funday at Baileyana in Edna Valley, or shake it to live tunes at Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards in Avila, home of the prettiest peacocks you've ever Instagrammed (go to pasowine.com and slowine.com for more end of summer wine tasting romps).
