Taking place at Windfall Farms, an exclusive community that promotes and enhances the sustainability of local agriculture and celebrates equestrian, ranch and agrarian lifestyles, the event will wow attendees with ranch-inspired delicacies, the region's best wines and the warm glow of many illuminated hot air balloons.

Joining Chef Fundaro will be Chef Chris Kobayashi of Artisan, Mike and Aaron Dean of Dean Brothers Smokehouse, Chef Julie Simon of Thomas Hill Organics, Chef Kevin Fryburger of the Paso Robles Inn, and Chef Anthony Hagans of Harris Ranch.

"We're excited to introduce this new twist on Paso Glow to Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast fans," said Stacie Jacob, executive director of the San Luis Obispo County Visitors & Conference Bureau (SLOCVCB), which co-hosts the event with Sunset magazine, the premier guide on life in the West. "Paso Robles is quickly becoming the state's hottest playground for food and wine lovers desiring a new experience that is refreshingly down to earth and welcoming. This event will give fans what they crave – the friendly hospitality that defines our region, while feeling like they've stepped into the pages of Sunset magazine."
Paso Glow is the latest addition to Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast, which features four days of national-caliber culinary adventures, from special events and celebrity chef seminars to Sunset editor workshops, regional wine tastings and adventure tours. Located midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the event takes place Sept. 27-30 at the renowned Santa Margarita Ranch and other locations around San Luis Obispo County—from the coast and Hearst Castle to wine country.
"There's already a buzz about town over Paso Glow, so we expect this event to sell out fast," said Maryann Stansfield, marketing director of the Travel Paso Robles Alliance, which is co-hosting the event with the SLOCVCB. "Over the past few years, Paso Robles has become a leader in innovative farm fresh cuisine, with abundant organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, virgin olive oil and artisanal cheeses. The natural marriage of locally grown food and wine, coupled with our proximity to local fresh seafood, is inspiring many ambitious and creative chefs from all over the country to move to the area to open restaurants. Paso Glow will feature all the best of our community, making it a memorable night for SAVOR fans." Stansfield also mentioned that the Travel Paso Robles Alliance is running a Facebook promotion to give fans the chance to win four passes to Paso Glow and Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast's Main Event Sept. 29-30.
