Sep. 21—Three Paso Robles spots are among the top 10 winery hotels in the nation, according to USA Today.

Allegretto Vineyard Resort, Hotel Cheval and SummerWood Winery & Inn landed on the publication's 10Best Reader's Choice Awards list for 2022.

Only one other California location made the list: South Coast Winery Resort and Spa in Temecula

"What's better than a quick day trip into wine country for a tasting or two? A full-fledged wine country getaway!," USA Today said.

To come up with the 10Best list, a panel of wine industry experts nominated their favorites, USA Today said. Readers then cast their votes for the top 10 winners.

Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles came in at No. 3 on the USA Today list.

The high-end resort's 171 European-inspired rooms and suites "reflect the natural beauty of the grounds and offer comfortable accommodations and modern conveniences," USA Today said.

"Many rooms have a terrazza with incredible views of the vineyard, pool and piazza," the publication said, and some rooms also include fireplaces, patios and balconies."

Accommodations are pet-friendly, and the resort also has a fitness center and on-site restaurant."

Guests may recognize Allegretto Vineyard Resort from a hit television show.

In March, NBC's "This Is Us" filmed an episode on the resort's grounds. The episode, which aired in April, featured the Pearson family gathering to celebrate the wedding of daughter Kate Pearson, played by actress Chrissy Metz.

"The Allegretto Vineyard Resort, a Tuscan-inspired full-service destination resort within the bucolic wine country of Paso Robles, is still relatively new, so we're thrilled to be recognized among such established resorts," Allegretto general manager Rich Verruni said in a news release.

Ranked No. 5 on the 10Best winery hotel list was Hotel Cheval in downtown Paso Robles.

"Hotel Cheval, a luxury boutique hotel in Paso Robles, comprises 16 rooms just off the historic town square," USA Today said. "Guests enjoy special touches, like a s'mores butler, library candy bar and gourmet breakfast."

It's not the first time the hotel has garnered attention from a travel site.

Hotel Cheval was in the running for TripAdvisor's 2021 Traveler's Choice Best of the Best awards, according to the hotel website.

SummerWood Inn & Inn in Paso Robles, which reopened in 2013 after an extensive renovation, came in at No. 10 on the USA Today list.

"The SummerWood Inn sits amid the rolling hills and vineyards of Paso Robles," USA Today said.

Guests at the hotel enjoy amenities including "welcome bottle of SummerWood wine, seasonal appetizers with wine each evening, late evening dessert and coffee, turndown service with house-made caramels, and made-to-order breakfast," the publication said. "Each room has a fireplace and private balcony or patio."
