Game On

Game On


My favorite season is upon us and this year we are eager to soak it up, for we have actually had a winter season.    And Summer in central coast wine country means it’s music season too.

At least four days a week, you can head out to a local vineyard, take in spectacular scenery, then pair it with a great bottle of wine and music on a warm wine country afternoon or evening.  And most of the time, it’s free! (except for any food or wine you buy.)

Music season ramps up Memorial Day weekend and continues through Labor Day or the end of harvest season.   Vintners offer up free entertainment in the hopes you’ll stay awhile and purchase wine while your there.   However, most have no requirements to do so.   You can even pack your own picnic at some, but almost all offer food options of some sort.    

Here’s a short sampling:

StillWaters Vineyards started the fun early this year by kicking off it’s “Picture Perfect Sundays” in April.  You’ll find a picnic paradise even in the heat of the summer under the canopy of shade provided by the ancient olive grove.  There is no charge and you can bring your own picnic, but Stein’s BBQ serves up some pretty awesome grub.  So unless you are a master picnic packer, you may find yourself with a little food envy if you don’t just purchase your meal there.   The owners also offer up great wine discounts for these events.   They happen the second Sunday of each month from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. through October.  

Tooth and Nail jumped into the music offerings a bit early as well on Wine Festival Weekend with Dan Curcio and The Damon Castillo Band, but will continue the fun every Friday through summer starting at 6:00 p.m.  T and N doesn't allow you to bring in your own food or wine, but does offer food for sale.  

And with the arrival of June, you have options everywhere, especially heading into weekends.  Claiborne and Churchill has its “Sips and Songs” series on Fridays from 5:30-7:30 and it too is free.   Pomar Junction’s Train Wreck Fridays are going full steam.  It will cost you $15.00 to get in if you aren't a club member, but they do have a great line-up of entertainment and put on a great party. 

You’ll find free music at Kelsey Vineyard on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, and Broken Earth Winery most Saturdays.   Sculpterra winery hosts “Songwriters at Play” every Saturday as well.   And enjoy music and the amazing view at Calcareous Vineyards for “Wine Down Wednesdays all summer long. 

If you have a favorite place to kick back and enjoy some lazy days of summer, or are a winery blending music into the mix, share it with me.  Just shoot me an email or post directly to the Ruby Shoes Wine Club facebook page.    Just get out and enjoy, because only Central Coast Wine Country can offer up music venues like these!

Cheers my friends.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
