Every St. Patrickâ€™s Day morning, the bars in downtown SLO open their doors at 6am to welcome crowds of green garmented guests eager to begin the festivities with an Irish Coffee or Irish Car Bomb.Â Soon rounds of Jamison shots will be passed around with bag pipes blowing in the background.Â Oh what fun!Â On the other hand, if you are seeking a more subtle celebration, come visit us at Tolosa Winery!Â We will be pouring our â€œgreenâ€ wines, not in color, but environmentally friendly, from our sustainable and solar estate vineyards.Â Â
St. Patrickâ€™s Day Offer:
We want to put some â€œgreenâ€ back in your pocket by offering $5 gift cards on Saturday, March 17th, 2012Â for purchases of 6 or more bottles!
Guests can also enjoy wine and cheese pairings with John Shakley, who is guaranteed to be dressed in green and orange from his socks to a vintage Ralph Lauren shirt or sweater (see last yearâ€™s photo).Â In honor of St. Patrickâ€™s Day, John themed one of the four pairings; 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon with Cahillâ€™s Irish Porter cheese. Hereâ€™s a little clip from Johnâ€™s description: Cowâ€™s milk from County Limerick, Ireland; pasteurized to protect us from the occasional intoxicated milking cow! Send John an email at email@example.com if you would like to make reservations for this weekendâ€™s pairings.
Happy St. Patrickâ€™s Day!
