Join Stolo Family Winery and The Abalone Farm in celebrating Coastal Discovery Month. Learn all about farming abalone off the coast in Cayucos and growing grapes close to the coast in Cambria.
You will have the rare opporunity to learn about two boutique businesses utilizing the unique coastal environment in their day-to-day practice. During the educational talk you will enjoy the perfect pairing of local abalone from The Abalone Farm and wine produced from coastal growers, Stolo Family Winery & Vineyards. The fresh abalone will be prepared, as you watch, in two different ways, and will be complemented with fresh bread, local fruit and cheese, and deliciously paired with one white and one red varietal from Stolo Winery.
In celebrating Coastal Discovery Month, you will have the opportunity to make a stewardship donation to the Coastal Discovery Center in San Simeon. The Center offers interactive exhibits and education programs which highlight the cultural and natural history of San Simeon, California State Parks, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The interface of land and sea is unique here, drawing people in for its rich bounty, economic opportunity, recreation and inspiration. Protecting these special places preserves them for the use and enjoyment of generations to come.
Stewardship Travel is about adding a bit of "doing good and feeling good" to your vacation.
