San Luis Obispo’s wine history begins in the late 1700s when the Franciscans brought vines and winemaking from Spain to establish two of the most successful mission vineyards in California. Since that time, innovative and enterprising growers and winemakers have had a significant influence on the economy of California and wine culture world-wide. The Wine History Project of SLO County believes in actively engaging the public to educate and delight them in discovering this distinctive wine and food history.
Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with guests Libbie Agran, Director of the Wine History Project of SLO County and Heather Muran, Historian for the Wine History Project of SLO County as they discuss how they are working to preserve and present two centuries of local viticulture through research, interviews, exhibitions, publications, talks and tastings for the community.
