A venue for everyone!

The week got off to an excellent start.  On Sunday while my husband and I were at a festival in Menlo Park, we went to a wine tasting booth set up by Woodside Vineyards.  Never one to shy away from a wine tasting or good conversation, I started chatting with the people at the booth.  They were from a place called Autovino.  They are a high end car storage facility and they also make wine!  After their chardonnay made me a believer, I knew I had to do a site visit.

The building is not much from the outside, but once you step in it is a great space for a corporate event or even a birthday party for your boyfriend or husband – equipped with a private cigar room.

Another site visit I went on this week was to the Toll House Hotel in Los Gatos.  This venue has plenty of parking and a to-die-for patio.  The space is incredibly unique and is walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and shops in downtown Los Gatos.  The town itself is a real jewel.

Finally, the most incredible visit of the week, hands down, was Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside.  On the drive, I’m not going to lie, I was nervous.  It felt like I was driving FOREVER up a steep, windy mountain more than 10 miles.  It was very beautiful though and reminiscent of New Zealand where we recently re-located from.  Up the road are plenty of hiking and bike trails and it could not have been a more beautiful day to explore this majestic area.  Once I arrived, the property did not disappoint.  I was led to the ceremony area that was nothing less than spectacular.  The view is of the bay and you can even see, on a clear day, into San Francisco!  They have a covered area where they can do a wedding ceremony in inclement weather or can be used as a reception/dining area overlooking the vineyards.  Breathtaking.  They also boast a gorgeous porch which can be used for a cocktail hour and indoor space for dancing which still has plenty of windows as to not sacrifice the views.  Sadly, I did not get a chance to do a tasting, but was given a complimentary opportunity to do so in the future.  Maybe this weekend?  I cannot wait to plan an event here!  It would be excellent for a wedding, re-commitment ceremony or even an anniversary party!

The Bay Area has no shortage of venues with LOTS of character.  From wineries, to hotels, to car-storage facilities (as I learned this week!)  There is truly something for everyone and I can’t wait to meet some really special clients and plan some really special events in these wonderful and unique venues.
