Call your girlfriends, pack your bags, and bring your appetite to Sunset magazine's magnificent SAVOR event. This four-day culinary extravaganza will play host to a two-day Main Event held at the historic Santa Margarita Ranch on September 28 and 29, 2013. The Main Event will highlight the talents of winemakers, celebrity chefs, brew masters, fishermen, artisanal food producers, Sunset experts, and many more artisans and producers from Ventura to Santa Barbara to San Luis Obispo to Monterey to Santa Cruz.
Wander the Marketplace and taste from over 100 local wineries, sample small bites dished-up from local restaurateurs, and enjoy vendors showcasing their craft. Relax in the Estrada Garden with a beer from one of our local breweries, listen to music from the Music Stage. In-depth wine and cooking seminars are offered throughout the weekend and give attendees a deep-dive into a specific varietal or cooking technique. Cost is $25 per seminar with purchase of your main event ticket.
Great places to stay and play:
Cambria Inns: Cambria is great for romance but it’s a wonderful place to go with friends because the seaside town is artsy and full of fab shops and restaurants.
Avila Lighthouse Suites: It’s across the street from the beach and is in a quaint tucked away town with a fun row of shops and restaurants. It feels cozy and safe and it's very close to all the action in Pismo Beach.
Madonna Inn: It is a landmark with fun themed rooms and an over-the-top restaurant and bakery plus a spa. It's in San Luis Obispo. They also have great horseback riding adventures and have fun packages year-round.
