It’s a good month to live in San Luis Obispo County, with dozens of restaurants and wineries offering specials and discounts for residents and visitors through the end of January.

For the third year, wineries around Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo are complementing the monthlong event with “Go Local” deals including free or two-for-one tastings, bottle and case discounts and winery tours.

Officials don’t collect information on how many visitors the program draws, said Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance Communications Director Chris Taranto, but it’s designed to build goodwill with county residents and drive incremental traffic to tasting rooms during a traditionally slow season.
