171-Room Resort Is Set On 20 Acres Of Vineyards And Olive Trees - Paso Robles, CA

The Allegretto Vineyard Resort

The 171-room resort is set on 20 acres of vineyards and olive trees at what used to be the edge of town. It definitely has that “Tuscany in California” feel about it, and even features a 12,000 square foot inner courtyard (I mean piazza) around which swirls village (I mean hotel) life.

Groups use the piazza for outdoor dining (the weather is usually good), and your guests can just relax around the fountain with their favorite “other wine country” glass of wine, or sit by the fire when the evening cools off.

The resort has 5,000 square feet of indoor space and about 30,000 square feet of very useable outdoor space. For a very cool venue for a private dinner, check out The Chapel. Well, I think it’s cool. Also have bocce ball, spa, pool, great food and all of that four-diamond stuff. www.allegrettovineyardresort.com

Want a different team-building idea? Try “Foraging” With The Chef.

Allegretto’s Executive Chef, Eric Olson explained to me that he enjoys taking groups out into wild places to seek out forgotten plants, and eat them. Not only does he teach your group how to recognize what’s edible and/or medicinal, he also gives your team a feeling for what it all means… where do we get our water, how did humans survive here for millennia, and how you can turn what seems to be a handful of nothing into a gourmet experience. Everyone who goes out foraging with the Chef, comes back changed. Think about it.

I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.
