Paso Robles Wine Country Welcomes New Vineyard Resort

Oct 11, 2015
Daily

Now open for oenophiles on California’s desirable Central Coast is the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, a 171-room luxury resort nestled on 20 acres of vineyards and fruit-bearing orchards in Paso Robles Wine Country.

From Southern California-based Ayres Hotels, the property evokes an Italian vineyard estate with manicured Mediterranean gardens and specially crafted vignettes as well as a full-service spa and a wine bar featuring the resort’s own private wine label.

Describing a moderate tempo of 112-120 beats per minute, allegretto is a musical term that is neither too fast nor too slow but is light, graceful and comfortable. Allegretto Vineyard Resort was aptly named for the sense of joy, comfort and harmony guests are offered upon arrival.

“Our mission is to inspire and create joy in every aspect of our guests’ stays,” said Anna Olson, general manager, Allegretto Vineyard Resort. “’Allegretto’ is our ‘Aloha’.”

Features include Cello Ristorante & Bar, offering regionally foraged ingredients, an extensive wine list, local artisanal beers and craft cocktails; a spa with unique amenities like zero-gravity chairs and an infrared detox sauna; and ample meeting and event space.

The 171 European-inspired guestrooms and suites, with optional balconies or patios, open to lush gardens, creating a sanctuary with a harmonious blend of comfort and revitalization.

Jackson’s Bar & Oven Review

There’s an aspirational rustic chic/farm-to-table restaurant genre often associated with Northern California’s wine country. When you drive down the main street of Napa, Sonoma or any of the other towns, it appears there are as many of them as there are vineyards. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this genre, as the quality of the food is consistent and ambitious chefs earnestly endeavor to elevate home-style dishes to a higher standard.

Imaginative Art Installations Take Off at Airports Around the World

During the 1990s, domestic and international travel increased dramatically in almost every region of the world. But when COVID-19 hit the travel industry in early 2020, airport managers gazed at empty terminals and parking lots and either stopped all construction work or took advantage of the suddenly quiet, traffic-free landscape to speed up expansion projects. For many airports, working through the pandemic meant they were able to complete their new runway and terminal projects, which included installing colorful new artwork that greeted millions of passengers in summer 2021 when TSA lines and flight schedules returned to pre-pandemic levels.

Mansion on Forsyth Park Review

This is a tale of two visits, one when I was just coming for a late lunch by myself and the other time returning as a five-night guest. The hotel used to be the jewel in the Kessler crown, but since the opening of JW Marriott Plant, it feels like the Mansion is an afterthought. Check-in and valet service are always superb at the Mansion; when I was there as a restaurant guest, I had a “big old pickup truck” — well, not old, as it was a rental from Hertz — and I could not have received nicer treatment. In fact, the pickup was out front and remained there as I had lunch — no charge, either! As a guest, I still received very kind care, but service was slower; maybe more people were there. Check-in was swift, but water seemed to be at a premium, and we had to secure this from the front desk daily — which I felt was inconvenient. I often found myself running down to secure a few bottles at the end of the day. The hotel has some impressive artwork throughout which is really interesting and helps set a fun mood.
