A celebration of the winemakers and bounty of the Central Coast

Hotel SLO and Executive Chef Ryan Fancher invite you to the inaugural Autumn Soirée: The SLO Way – Saturday, November 12, 2022. Taking place in Hotel SLO’s Garden Courtyard, the event will showcase some of the Central Coast’s most acclaimed wineries paired with the culinary creations of Chef Ryan Fancher and his team at Ox + Anchor and Piadina, as well as delicious bites from top chefs and purveyors of the San Luis Obispo region. This stylish affair will include live music throughout the evening, a prize drawing of special wine collections and one-of-a-kind travel experiences, plus a few artful surprises.
