SLO Wine Country's 25th Annual Roll Out the Barrels

A spring view of the Edna Valley region and the Santa Lucia Mountains. 
April 1 isn't just for pranksters. This year, the day of fools belongs to oenophiles and locavores in San Luis Obispo County.

SLO Wine Country's 25th Annual Roll Out the Barrels begins on the first day of April, kicking off a month-long celebration of their member wineries' special events. Throughout the month, residents and visitors can eat and drink SLO-style, visiting wineries in San Luis Obispo and the Edna Valley region for vinous festivities like comparative tastings, vineyard tours, barrel sampling, a farm-to-vineyard luncheon, a blending seminar, and a bottling run demonstration. 

The spirited event culminates at the end of April with their annual Barrels in Mission Plaza in downtown SLO, where wineries and local chefs playfully pair festive bites and sips. The next evening their collaborative winemaker dinner at a local restaurant features the region's cool-climate varietals like chardonnay and pinot noir. 

I won't give away all of the upcoming shenanigans, so click here to visit SLO Wine Country's website for their entire event line-up. 

Eat and drink playfully all month long—like a slocal!

Regardless of the season, this spirited area of the globe is no joke.
