"We're reminding SAVOR fans that the seminars, adventure tours and opening night at Hearst Castle are extremely popular, and tend to sell out weeks before the event," said Stacie Jacob, CEO of Visit San Luis Obispo County, which organizes the event with Sunset magazine, the premier guide to the Western lifestyle.

Year after year we see these tickets sell out and strongly recommend you get your tickets now so you can get the programs you want most."

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.
