The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay is situated along California’s Central Coast, so you can just imagine that the vistas are stunning.
But that’s only part of the good news. You also should know this is a resort that takes wine seriously.
As part of its Vintner Series, the luxurious hotel provides guests with complimentary wine selections when they check in. In the Conservatory Lounge, a special by-the-glass list is featured. And, of course, wine pairings are offered as part of the six-course tasting menu at Navio restaurant.
And there’s more: Once each month, Navio features a Vintner Dinner, hosted by a winery representative, that includes four courses and paired wines. The cost is $99, plus tax and gratuity.
Weekends also are special at the resort’s ENO Tasting Room. Each Friday from 4 to 6 p.m., and each Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m., a representative from a featured winery will be on hand. For a fee of $25 to $35, depending on the winery, a guest can learn about – and taste – the latest releases in the winery’s portfolio.
To make a Vintner Dinner reservation, call 650-712-7040. For further information on Vintner Series events, visit: www.ritzcarlton.com/hmbor
