The Pacific Coast Wine Trail will host Vino to H20, featuring wine tasting from 10 local wineries, food and live music.

The event is scheduled for 4 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday, May 9, at the historic Borradori Garage, 455 N. Ocean Ave. in Cayucos. 

The wineries will pour more than 20 artisan wines, with Linn’s providing gourmet bites and Brown Butter Cookies supplying sweets. Guitarist Billy Foppiano will perform live.

Tickets, priced at $35 each, are available at Proceeds from the event benefit the Lifewater International, a San Luis Obispo-based Christian nonprofit founded in 1977 that’s dedicated to serving vulnerable children and families through integrated water, sanitation and hygiene programs.

Since its founding, Lifewater has helped more than 2.5 million people in more than 40 countries gain access to improved water sources, with most recent projects benefitting people in southern Ethiopia and northern Uganda.

The Pacific Coast Wine Trail, which stretches from San Simeon to Morro Bay, was established in January 2013 to promote wine tasting along the Northern Central Coast. What began as a partnership of seven wineries has grown to 10 in the past year. 

“This spring fundraiser is the perfect occasion to remind locals that there’s a serious wine region along the coast, introduce the three new wineries on the trail: Chateau Margene and Cuatro Dias in Morro Bay, and Cutruzzola in Cambria, and support Lifewater, a local charity that’s making a global impact,” said Steve Thompson of Twin Coyotes Winery, President of the Pacific Coast Wine Trail.
