Quite literally hammering away over the forge and fire, Santa Maria-based blacksmith Hans Duus has spent the past 51 years of his life carrying his Old World craft into the new age. Now, his work will shine at downtown Paso Robles’ newest boutique hotel, The Piccolo.

Another month has passed, another month full of beautiful sunsets, beach trips, wine tasting, and more! Life on the Central Coast is at its peak during summer—so soak it up! Now that August has begun, it’s time to look back at our favorite #CentralCoasting moments from the month of July
The calendar is full of made-up holidays like National Relaxation Day, National Lighthouse Day, National Ice Cream Day… the list goes on and on. While we usually have a chuckle about these “holidays” and then move on with business as usual, there are a few that we can’t resist celebrating—National Tequila Day is one of those.
It’s a warm late afternoon in the middle of summer, and you’re listening to live music, leaning back on a picnic blanket and feeling the sunshine warm your face.

The friendly and relaxed energy of your neighbors and friends is palpable, and it feels like you have no worries.
It’s one of those long summer nights, and you’re sipping on your favorite wine while soaking in the vibrancy of another colorful Central Coast sunset. What could be better? This dream could be reality this summer with a visit to the Central Coast, a region with no shortage of fantastic sunset views – and of course, local high-quality wine galore.
