Dolphin Bay Resort Honored With Stars of the Industry Award

November 25, 2014 (Pismo Beach, CA) – The Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa has much to celebrate after being recognized by The California Hotel & Lodging Association at the organization's annual meeting at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. The Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa received a / Stars of the Industry Award for Ongoing Special Events for its efforts in organizing and hosting The 2014 Chardonnay Symposium (TCS14). The Award was accepted by Terence Concannon, Hotel Operations Manager for The Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa and the Director of The Chardonnay Symposium.

“We are truly humbled to receive this award from the CH&LA. While we work every day for the satisfaction of our guests, this award – and the respect of our peers – fills us with a great sense of pride,” said Terence Concannon.

The Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa assisted in elevating The Chardonnay Symposium into the upper echelon of wine education events — with some of the state's finest producers pouring at The Grand Chardonnay Tasting, and educating at the seminar. Lido Restaurant's exquisite cuisine and stunning Pacific Ocean views provided a relaxing setting for the Grand Chardonnay Dinner.

The success of The Chardonnay Symposium plays an important role in elevating the Central Coast as one of the most desirable places to visit on the West Coast. As the Symposium heads into its sixth year, organizers, wineries and the resort are hard at work on TCS15, looking to maintain the standards of excellence set for the event in 2014 and exceed the new and returning guest expectations. The Chardonnay Symposium is a rare opportunity to discover and learn from winemakers about this misunderstood grape and to enjoy the culture surrounding Chardonnay wines.

The 6^th Annual Chardonnay Symposium will be held at The Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa with the Grand Chardonnay Tasting at Dinosaur Caves Park in Pismo Beach, California on June 5^th -7^th , 2015. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale in January, 2015.
