We are your source for news about SLO County wine

If you are interested in the wine scene in SLO County, The Tribune and are where you want to go for the latest information.
Every Friday, we publish the Wine Notes column in our Business section. Correspondent Janis Switzer profiles a local winery and its owner/winemakers. Today she highlights Per Bacco Cellars, which is owned and operated by Marco Rizzo (of Cafe Roma fame) and longtime vineyard manager Craig Shannon. You can also see the story on -- look under the Business heading.
In addition, our Web site has a new feature called Explore San Luis Obispo County. There is a section devoted to our wine coverage. Click on that to find past articles, as well as other special features, like wine country maps and listings of wineries throughout the county.
Another treat for wine lovers arrives in Saturday's newspaper: The official guide to the 25th annual Paso Robles Wine Fesitval. The event occurs May 19 at City Park in Paso's downtown. It is a highlight to a weekend of events. The guide has a useful map showing booth locations in the park for more than 80 wineries, and listings about them. (Disclaimer here: The Tribune is a co-sponsor of the festival).
If you have a suggestion on how we might improve our wine coverage, let us know by posting a comment.
