31st annual Central Coast Wine Classic

Schedule for August 10–14 now available

The Central Coast Wine Classic is excited to announce major enhancements to its consistently comprehensive schedule as one of the most educational charity wine auction weeks in America. According to Central Coast Wine Classic Founder & Chairman, Archie McLaren, “Our array of culinary and wine symposia has been highly praised by our Wine Classic patrons over the years. We want to heighten our educational mission by embracing an even greater depth and breadth of edifying wine and cuisine related topics. In the process, the Wine Classic will be presented in an even broader array of special venues, including San Simeon, Paso Robles, Templeton, Santa Margarita, San Luis Obispo including the Edna Valley, Shell Beach, Avila Beach, Arroyo Grande, Santa Maria, Los Olivos, Buellton, Santa Ynez, Santa Barbara and Montecito, a far cry from when the original Wine Classic in 1985 took place over a single day.”

The Board of Directors of the Central Coast Wine Classic Foundation and the Members of Central Coast Wine Classic Advisory Committee have created the expanded offerings of the 2016 event. Obviously there are multi-partite missions in the evolution of the Wine Classic, including presenting the healthy relationship between fine wine and fine cuisine, the benefitting of 501(c)3 non-profit corporations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties whose missions are in the healing, studio and performing arts, the presentation of the wines of the United States, obviously including those of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, and overseas to a demographic audience of enthusiastically interested patrons whose desire is to become educated in the appreciation of fine wine.
