Situated on 15 acres of sustainably-farmed vineyards and gardens along the Carmel River, Folktale Winery features nine event venues for groups as small as 6 and as large as 1200 people. Private dinners, team building, tastings, meetings and… their wine is really good.

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.

400-acre property includes stone hacienda, vineyards, wine caves, olive grove, horse stables - Carmel Valley, CA

Holman Ranch & Vineyards

This 10-room 400-acre Carmel Valley property includes a stone hacienda, vineyards, wine caves, an olive grove, horse stables and not one, but two tasting rooms. The Ranch is available for all sorts of events, both indoors and out, regardless of whether you are staying on property. Each of their many outdoor spaces can individually hold 200+ for an event, but since they only take one event at a time, you could conceivably take over the whole ranch and invite everyone you have ever met. It’s a beautiful spot. www.holmanranch.com    

Hotel and a Venue “Nestled” on 330 acres - Carmel, CA

Stonepine Estate (both as a hotel and a venue)

Many resorts seem to be nestled somewhere, and The Stonepine Estate is no exception. “Nestled” on 330 acres in Carmel Valley, the Estate (as a hotel) features an eight-bedroom chateau and three houses, totaling 16 guest rooms. The estate offers a very high-level of service combined with creativity and friendliness, and is a perfect venue for Board meetings and retreats.

As a venue (regardless of whether you are staying there or at another property), they can accommodate groups up to 250 and do all sorts of themed parties and events (my personal experience there involved a private demonstration of amazing horsemanship… combined with a delicious BBQ).  Besides the western themes easily incorporated into their equestrian center, other, more elegant settings are a natural for Great Gatsby type events (or other themes in which people pretend to be rich and carefree). Anyway, whatever the theme, they are good there. www.stonepineestate.com

Iconic Venue Has Several Private and Semi-Private Areas - Monterey, CA

The Sardine Factory

Speaking of iconic venues, The Sardine Factory has been doing what they do since 1968. It’s now a tradition that if you are anybody who is anybody, you dine there when you’re in town. It deserves its reputation (as in, it’s really good and deserves its reputation).

They take groups and because the restaurant has several private and semi-private areas, they can be very flexible with group size. In addition, they have a great private dining room in their wine cellar (for up to 28) and can do wine tastings, food and wine pairings, and… a lot of eating and drinking. www.sardinefactory.com
