Outdoor Concert at Castoro

Last week we went to Castoro Cellars on the westside of Templeton to an outdoor concert. Castoro is one of the venues for SLOfolks, the San Luis Obispo Folk Music Society. We attend concerts there several times a year. This one was held outdoors, and the weather was delightful! It started at 7:00, which was just as the sun was setting. The group was "Wake the Dead", a "Celtic Grateful Dead Jam Band" from the Oakland/Berkeley area, playing celtic traditional music and the songs of the Grateful Dead...a rather interesting combination. They were indeed "grate" and we enjoyed the evening.

Claudia, Tom and Charlie enjoy the concert.

I know I would have loved that band, their name, their clothes and their instruments all tell me so! Kath x

I love the concerts at Castoro, it especially helps that they can be accompanied by some of their great wines. I became even more excited about this winery when I found out that many of their 2008 releases have been SIP™ (Sustainability in Practice) Certified. In order to receive this certification the growers must go through a rigorous process to prove their continuing commitment to environmental stewardship, social equity, and economic vitality. The SIP™ program takes into consideration energy conservation, erosion control, pest management, human resource practices, and more. Consumers should look for the SIP™ certified seal on bottles; this seal signals that the wine you are drinking contains 85% or more certified fruit. Keep drinking those SIP™ wines so we can hope to see even more make their debuts in the future.
