CALIFORNIA - Paso Robles Wine Region’s Allegretto Vineyard Resort Creates World’s First Sonic Labyrinth

New Outdoor Sound Circle Complements Luxury Resort’s Wellness Offerings Nestled Amongst 20 acres of Vines and Olive Trees on California’s Central Coast 

July 12, 2018 (Paso Robles, Calif.) – The Allegretto Vineyard Resort, a 171-room luxury resort in the Paso Robles wine region, announces the creation of the world’s first Sonic Labyrinth ‘Sound Circle.’  Designed to provide guests a tranquil space with a distinctive series of sounds created by wind instruments, the new Sonic Labyrinth deepens the resort’s wellness offerings in the heart of Paso Robles Wine Country on California’s Central Coast.

According to proprietor Doug Ayres, the Sonic Labyrinth utilizes music and space as a way to compel guests to slow their pace and become more mindful. As a symbol of life’s journey, a labyrinth is an archetypal pattern that leads one along a single, meandering path to a center point – the center being a metaphor as well as a physical spot. Labyrinths provide an opportunity to free the mind at one’s own pace, by incorporating sound into the experience.
