2011 Winemakers’ Cookoff® Accommodation-Ticket Discount Packages

Rotary’s Discount Package this Year Includes Seven Paso Robles & Two Atascadero Hotels

Paso Robles, CA, April 11, 2011 – The Paso Robles Rotary Club announced a renewal of the discounted weekend accommodation-ticket packages for attendees of its Winemakers’ Cookoff® coming Saturday, August 6. To encourage out-of-town attendance at the Cookoff and participation in its “Make It a Winemakers’ Weekend,” lodging and ticket discounts have been expanded to include seven participating Paso Robles hotels: Adelaide Inn, Paso Robles; Best Western Colony Inn, Atascadero; Courtyard by Marriott, Paso Robles; Hampton Inn, Paso Robles; Holiday Inn Express & Suites of Paso Robles; Holiday Inn Express of Atascadero; La Bellasera Suites & Spa; La Quinta Inns and Suites, Paso Robles; and The Paso Robles Inn. The weekend packages will offer discounted accommodations and Winemakers’ Cookoff discount admission. In addition, a discounted roundtrip shuttle service is being arranged with details to be announced soon. 

“Lodging and ticket packages proved their potential for our attendees last year and our expanded list of hotels is our effort to accommodate growing attendance from guests out of the area,” said Sharon Ross, 2011 Rotary Winemakers’ Cookoff chair. “Again, we are encouraging participating Cookoff wineries to add events and discounts during the Cookoff weekend.  It’s a great way for us to boost event attendance and weekend visits to our area as well as give a shot to the local economy.”

Discounted lodging packages vary by hotel and may not be available online or through national hotel chain reservation systems.

During its thirteen-year history, the Paso Robles Winemakers’ Cookoff has become one of Paso Robles’ most-popular wine, food and music events. It is also one of its most unique. The Cookoff features not just local wines, but the culinary talents of more than 30 of the appellation’s winemakers. Participating wineries pair their culinary creations with their finest wines and compete for both Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice awards the day of the event. Since the first Winemakers’ Cookoff in 1999, proceeds from the Winemakers’ Cookoff have been deposited in Rotary’s Harlow Ford Scholarship Foundation building a perpetual fund that has enabled the Paso Robles Rotary Club to award scholarships exceeding $350,000 as well as build a perpetual fund that will help guarantee future scholarship benefits.
