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.
