PASO ROBLES, Calif.
The Allegretto Vineyard Resort recently celebrated its grand opening on California’s Central Coast.
The first of its kind in Paso Robles Wine Country, the Allegretto is nestled on 20 acres that include wine-grapes, olives and fruit trees, 171 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant with chef’s garden, wine bar, 12,000-square-foot courtyard, pool and cabanas, spa, Abbey (a multi-use French-inspired chapel), ballroom, indoor and outdoor event space, walking paths, manicured Mediterranean gardens, specially crafted vignettes, and arts and artifacts that invoke the warmth and beauty of la dolce vita.
Allegretto is a musical term describing a moderate tempo, 112-120 beats per minute, neither too fast nor too slow, it’s light, graceful and comfortable. The Allegretto Vineyard Resort was said to be named for “the sense of joy, comfort and harmony guests feel upon arrival.”
“Our mission is to inspire and create joy in every aspect of our guests’ stays,” said General Manager, Anna Olson. “‘Allegretto’ is our ‘Aloha’ here in wine country.”
The Allegretto Vineyard Resort is devoted to culinary excellence. Cello Ristorante & Bar is an upscale yet casual Mediterranean-inspired restaurant. Cello features creative dishes made from regionally foraged ingredients, warm hospitality, an extensive wine list, local artisanal beers and craft cocktails.
Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director, Eric Olson, brings a world of experience and a global culinary education to Cello, where his talent for eclectic menu-crafting and formal training combine to accentuate Allegretto’s warmth and authenticity. The restaurant opens to a patio with iron fire bowls and a bocce ball court that takes advantage of Paso’s warm evenings and beautiful sunsets.
“Our promise of quality will be available whether guests are dining pool side, in-room or at events on- or off-property,” Chef Olson said.
The Allegretto Vineyard Resort also offers an array of wedding and event spaces, catering and event coordination. Event venues on its property include the: Dylan Board Room (capacity: 24); Murano Private Dining (capacity: 30); Veneto Ballroom (capacity: 300 and divisible by three); Abbey (capacity: 40), as well as a 12,000-square-foot courtyard and 40,000 square feet of outdoor space.
The 171 European-inspired guest rooms and suites, with optional balconies or patios, open to lush gardens, creating a sanctuary with a harmonious blend of comfort and revitalization. The 14’ European-height ceilings, Allegretto Dream Sleeper pillow-top mattresses and custom linens, plush robes and slippers, and Allegretto-crafted amenities aim to create a memorable in-room experience.
The Spa at Allegretto is ready to welcome guests and locals to relax and rejuvenate in their zero-gravity chairs, infrared detox sauna, or with a massage, facial, and body treatments. Additionally, the spa offers a Wellness Program featuring Chära (a dynamic alternative to yoga) exclusively at Allegretto.
