Located midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast offers four-days of culinary immersion. By highlighting the destination's unique Central Coast locations and active outdoor, farm-to-table lifestyle, Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast has become the premier wine and food event in the West. In addition to unique evening events – such as Sunset at Hearst Castle – guests enjoy taking part in culinary and outdoor adventure tours Sept. 25-26.
