Sparkling Wine Down
On Sunday, the center of the wine world moves over to the SeaCrest Oceanfront Hotel from 11 am - 1:30 pm where you’ll gaze out over the Pacific while you wine-down with us at a casual sparkling wine tasting.
There’ll be effervescence galore as we offer sparkling wines from a variety of SLO Coast producers. You can taste Rosé, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Pét-Nat, and almost every other variation of sparkling wine you can think of. We’ll also have bubble-friendly food pairings including local oysters and fried chicken, plus live music from local musician, Jon Millsap. It's the perfect way to get your day started, whether you’re off to visit SLO Coast AVA wineries or heading home.
