The village of San Simeon, just across Highway 1 from the sprawling 80,000-acre Hearst Ranch and the entrance to Hearst Castle, is an overlooked gem on California's Central Coast. Whether you stop for a wine tasting or spend the day sightseeing, kayaking, windsurfing or hiking, this sleepy hamlet offers plenty to do. The tab: $330, including meals and one night at the Pelican Inn & Suites in nearby Cambria.

Like a fine wine, Paso Robles, Calif., gets better with age. I was delighted to find new downtown restaurants, wine bars and shops since last visiting five years ago. And there are now more than 200 eclectic wineries dotting the region's oak-shaded country roads. Fall is a great time to visit, especially during Harvest Wine Weekend (Oct. 19-21 this year). There's a crush of activities to celebrate the crushing of the grapes: Jump in and try your hand, oops, feet, at grape stomping, get a vino-therapy massage or go to an elegant winemaker dinner or casual barbecue.

If you're headed up to Paso Robles to tour some wineries and do some wine country eating, know this: Artisan , the 7-year-old farm-to-table restaurant from chef Chris Kobayashi and his brother and partner Michael, has pulled up stakes. They haven't gone far, though: they're still in Paso Robles, but now in the former A&R Furniture building at 843 12th St. The new location adds a full liquor license (yay!) for all those cocktail fanatics out there and sidewalk tables fronting the town's grassy square and park.

At HammerSky Vineyards and Inn in Central California, you can come to taste the wine -- and linger longer, if you like. The Paso Robles vineyard is offering visitors a chance to bunk down in its restored farmhouse that's more than a century old. The price tag: $225 per person per night for a stay at the 50-acre site plus wine and a spa treatment. The deal: HammerSky was started in 2007, but the farmhouse dates back to pioneer times, the vineyard's website says. Owners Douglas and Kim Hauck have updated the house with Wi-Fi, an outdoor living space and renovated bedrooms that accommodate up to six guests.

It's that time of year. The third Garagiste Festival in Paso Robles will be held this weekend at Windfall Farms. If you've never attended one, this is the place to discover wines from Paso's artisan winemakers. To bring you up to speed, the term garagistes is French for small-lot winemakers, often working in their garages and likely not to follow the rules. Or at least, that's the way the Garagiste Festival tells it. I'll go with its synonyms: rule-breakers, pioneers, renegades, mavericks.

The road to and from Mission San Antonio de Padua is twisty, but I've seen worse and it's beautiful ("Paso Robles," by Ann Herold, The Travel Issue, Oct. 15). We took it in our "Synopsis Tour of California" in '02, just when our oldest had finished studying the history of California in sixth grade. I was impressed with the size of the wine cellar at Mission San Antonio. It seems that my compatriots (I come from Barcelona) knew their catechism as well as how to keep their vino cool.

SOCHI, Russia -- You can practically imagine Travis Pastrana wishing that U.S. snowboarders Alex Deibold and Trevor Jacob had their wild Olympic finish on his show. Who knows? Maybe they can re-create it on a future episode of “Nitro Circus.” It was fascinating theater on a rain-soaked muddle of a course, a sliding photo finish between Deibold and Jacob in the semifinals of men's snowboard cross on Tuesday morning. Mere inches separated the teammates fighting for the last spot in the final.

 Quarterbacks, beware. When you're facing Eagle Rock, know that senior cornerback Paul Gandara is lurking and looking to cause a little havoc. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound senior has 21 career interceptions going into this week's game against Marshall. He has led Eagle Rock to a 7-0 record. "I don't notice how many I have because each game my main goal isn't to get an interception," Gandara said. "It's to help my team in any way. Usually, when the quarterback will make a little mistake, I see my chance to capitalize.
