The Paso Wine Country Alliance is working with 15 Degrees C Wine Shop & Bar to showcase San Luis Obispo County Wines at the Mission Square Wine Bar during the California Mid-State Fair, July 20 - 31, 2011. Fair goers are invited to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the fair and then stop by and enjoy a glass of wine or draft beer in the shade. Throughout the duration of the Fair, Mission Square will feature seven award-winning Paso Robles wines by the glass, 12 different daily wine flights from the Central Coast Wine Competition Award winners as well as a selection of beer, various cheeses and olive oils.
“As a certified sommelier and owner of 15c, we paired up with the Wine Alliance to bring our most important agricultural product, wine, to fairgoers to taste in daily flights or to enjoy by the glass,” said Ali Carscaden, owner of 15 Degrees C Wine Shop & Bar. “We have also taken our signature 15c cheese plates and are offering award-winning olive oils, local artisan bread, fresh fruit and three local cheeses to pair with your wine. For a unique experience and education come visit us at the Mission Square.”
Mission Square will feature a new wine flight each day focused on different varietals and themes from the Central Coast Wine Competition award winners. Flights include everything from Syrah and Spanish whites, to Chardonnay and Zinfandel demonstrating the diversity of wines produced in San Luis Obispo County.
