Alta Colina wins Sunset Magazine’s Travel Award
–Alta Colina Vineyard & Winery announced that it has won a 2017 Sunset Magazine “Best in the West” Travel Award – and is the only winery to be honored this year.
The award – which highlights the wine and its new vintage-trailer campground located on a secluded hilltop in the winery’s estate vineyard – is featured, along with a photo, in the August 2017 issue, on newsstands now.
The Sunset Travel Awards honors the top game-changing and stylish destinations and experiences across the 13 Western states, British Columbia, Alberta and Western Mexico. In addition to being the sole winery honored, Alta Colina Vineyard was the only Central Coast destination in this year’s awards.
The Trailer Pond is situated around a secluded pond nestled in the center of Alta Colina’s organic estate vineyard, and boasts five refurbished vintage trailers by Templeton-based Tinker Tin Trailer Co. Guests wake up to stunning, unobstructed views of Paso Robles’ famous Adelaida District, enjoy coffee among the vines, and savor lazy wine-tasting days strolling through the vine rows.
The vineyard-camping experience – the only one of its kind in California – includes a complimentary tasting of Alta Colina’s Rhône-inspired estate wines, and offers additional tours and experiences, including the Summit Vineyard Tasting , Cellar Door Tasting, and more.
“This one-of-a-kind partnership with Tinker Tin allows us to share, in a wholly unique way, the backbone of Alta Colina’s foundation: our secluded, award-winning estate vineyard,” says Maggie Tillman, Alta Colina co-owner and director of sales and marketing. “We are overjoyed Sunset Magazine has honored us with this award, and hope more people will get to experience our breathtaking views, stylish accommodations, and award-winning estate wines.”
