Earth Day Food  & Wine Festival Central Coast California


Earth Day Food and Wine Festival is held in one of California finest regions, California Central Coast. It's a place you think about in California when you contemplate what's worth celebrating, preserving and protecting on Earth Day. From this incredibly rich land that grows not only a bounty of foods, fruits and flowers, come fine wines that even the northern California vintners have decided are worthy of investigation and investing in.

With that in mind, one of our websitee's favorite spots for events such as Earth Day Food and Wine Festival  is exactly where its being hosted, in Santa Margarita in San Luis Obispo County. If you notice that the people in the pictures above seem happier and healthier, you notice right. With the lifestyle us city dwellers can only envy, they enjoy fine wines, fresh herbs, olive oils, jams, cheese, salads, meats and a bounty of foods that are served by local growers of the region at the Earth Day Food and Wine Festival. 

Earth Day Food & Wine Festival, billed as an intimate celebration featuring earth friendly cuisine, sustainably produced wines, live entertainment and educational exhibits highlighting innovative products, supports sustainable agriculture research and farm worker outreach programs. Under the umbrella of non-profit Central Coast Vineyard Team (CCVT), the event is not only entertaining and enjoyable for consumers, it is also a best bet for those in the industry seeking to network and learn about what the Central Coast is doing to promote sustainability.
