The Wine History Project of San Luis Obispo County preserves and presents two centuries of local viticulture through research and interviews, exhibitions and publications, talks and demonstrations, plantings and harvestings, and food and wine tastings. We work with local museums and archives and organize events in venues throughout the county.

The Wine History Project seeks oral histories of our growers, winemakers, and wineries, as well as historic photographs, articles, brochures, and travel and wine books; tools of the wine industry; and bottles and labels. If you can help in any way, please contact us. Your stories now will document our county’s wine history for the future.
