My wife and I are going here over Labor Day weekend for 3 nights. I've read a few older posts but I couldn't really find a comprehensive one with Hotels, Dining and Winery recommendations. If there is, please help out and post a link, otherwise it would be great if some members can help out with suggestions.

From what I've read (and tasted) so far I plan on hitting up Villa Creek, McPrice Myers/Barrel 27 and Herman Story. Maybe on Calcereous, Turley (do they taste?), Denner, Linne Calodo, Justin and a few others. Yah, I'm here for Rhones.

For dining I've read recommendations for Villa Creek, and a few others that I can't remember right now.

And I couldn't find anything for lodging. Is downtown a nice area to stay?

Anything else I'm missing?

Turley does taste out, you'd have to call Denner beforehand, they ran out of wine...

Herman Story should have their new tasting room open. Russell is a really cool guy.

Villa Creek was okay. Artisan was a nice meal, though...

If you hit Tablas, Adeladia and Alta Colina are near by. Both high QPR producers...

As far as lodging, I'm no help. Motel 6 all the way!
Downtown is a great place to stay. Nicest place is Hotel Cheval. Paso Robles Inn is also suitable.
I love Villa Creek for dinner. I have heard Bistro Laurent is good, as is Artisan. For Italian, Buona Tavola.
The restaurant at Justin is also good. They have lodging there too.

I am not familiar with McPrice Myers/Barrel 27 and Herman Story. Please post notes.

Other favorites are Terry Hoage and RN Estate.

Recent recommendation I have not tried yet is Ecluse.

I think you would have had to buy a whole lot of wine from Alban to get in. Similar with Saxum, you have to be on their allocation list.

L'Aventure is a walk-in tasting but you probably won't get the good stuff. I dropped off their list because the minimum purchases got too high. I think Hoage is a good substitute.
