ULTIMATE WINE COUNTRY EXPERIENCE IN PASO ROBLES
Summerwood Winery & Inn Featured in SF Chronicle
(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) â€“ If you are seeking the ultimate wine country experience, where you can literally sleep amongst the vines, Summerwood Winery & Inn of Paso Robles, California is one of a wide range of California wineries with lodging featured in the March 28, 2004 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle.
According to the newspaperâ€™s Travel Editor Spud Hilton, who wrote about wineries that cater to the publicâ€™s taste for blending vineyards with inns, "Itâ€™s seductive staying at a winery, being able to look out at sunrise over the vines whose fruit filled your goblet the night before." Another benefit, he wrote, is that you are afforded the "access, atmosphere and time that the thundering horde of weekend wine-tasters donâ€™t getâ€¦"
"From the beginning, our goal at Summerwood has been to surround our guests with elegance and luxury. We are thrilled that the San Francisco Chronicle discovered our winery and inn," said Summerwood Winery & Innâ€™s Operations Manager Andrea Boatman. "At Summerwood we are dedicated to creating a luxurious and unforgettable experience for our guests. At the inn and at the tasting room, guests can enjoy our limited production wines carefully paired with the eclectic wine country cuisine of our Executive Chef Charles Paladin Wayne."
"Paso Robles is among the fastest growing wine regions in the West," Hilton wrote, "but thereâ€™s a dearth of upscale lodging, making the Summerwood Inn a logical feature of this young winery (started in 2000)." In addition to Paso Robles, wineries in Napa, Mendocino, Temecula, Livermore and Sierra Foothills wine regions were featured in the story.
Summerwood Winery & Inn is situated within the Westside vineyards of Paso Robles which is ideally located half-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. For more information visit www.summerwoodwine.com or call Summerwood Inn at (805) 227.1111 or Summerwood Winery at (805) 227.1365.
