It's called Wine Waves and Beyond. The "Beyond" is surf, sunshine and a weekend long celebration of our classic California lifestyle. That's why it's my Pick of the Week.
The event kicked off last night with Surf Movie Night at the Fremont Theater in downtown San Luis Obispo. Tomorrow it's the Barrel to Barrel Tasting at the Cliffs Resort with surf music and surf-side views.
Saturday there's a brew-master's dinner at Sycamore Mineral Springs and Sunday look for a Longboard surf contest, including a special heat for brew-masters and wine-makers, a beach party with two bands by the pier and a vintage VW show. "We wanted to do a lifestyle event that involved wine and food and surfing and surf culture and then we thought what a better fit than to work with AMP Surf who does so much work for amputees particularly veterans in teaching them how to surf so we thought what a great combination." said Charles Crellin, one of the organizers.
The event is in it's fifth year and has raised about $70-thousand for AMP Surf. For more information, click here.
