Good Morning Saunders!
Our group had a wonderful time at Wine Country Inn! Many of our Board members and Administrative Council members said this was the best strategic planning retreat thus far. The property was so clean and lovely with the flowered landscaping and setting among the vineyards. The pavilion perfectly fit the size of our group, as did the meeting and inside dining space. The sleeping accommodations were very comfortable with the frig, coffee pot, and microwave. I’m just sorry I didn’t have time to enjoy the patio off my 1st floor room as I was scurrying around to be sure everyone was enjoying themselves. And, staff made it easy for me! Vickie was so attentive and everything was perfectly arranged. She was easy to find and wonderful to work with! We thought we were running a ½ hour earlier so she and the kitchen coordinated an earlier lunch for us however we ended up going over 40 minutes and the food was kept warm and delicious. All of the food was exceptional and our four special dieters truly felt special and well fed! Our vegan particularly enjoyed the quinoa stuffed squash- please extend a thank you to the Chef for taking such care in accommodating our special dieters. Please be sure and thank Vickie, the Bartender, Ian, and others who made our 2017 Board Strategic Planning Retreat such a huge success!The only negative comment I heard was concerning the noseeums, those pesky little black gnats around the dinner time. Perhaps a few citronella plants or candles strategically placed would help.
We have an annual Board Retreat usually the first Wednesday and Thursday of June and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if we return to Wine Country Inn in the future.
Thanks again and I hope to see you again soon.

Matt and I were extremely happy with The Wine Country Inn and how you and Vicky took care of us for our special day. Everyone was professional and on top of things. The decorations were perfect.The food was delicious, Vicky even got the chef to make me some Beur Blanche for the salmon. (I’m not sure how to spell it 😊). Your staff was professional and attentive. Your special touches like the wine and the champagne were wonderful. I also appreciate her setting up the back drop for photos; I wish I hadn’t forgotten the silly props in my car. I also really appreciate Vicky looking to see if we were missing any cards and getting back to me.
Everything you ladies did for us was wonderful and appreciated. We couldn’t be happier.
You ladies are amazing! Thanks again!
Thank you Saunders. The venue was exactly what we were looking for and everyone was friendly and helpful. I appreciate your assistance in bringing this together on such short notice.
All the best,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for helping our event go so smoothly. WIC Program Directors came from across the state and were so pleased with the location of the Wine Country Inn and appreciated the amenities – from your wine sampling to the beautiful facility and the awesome breakfast and lunch we had during our stay. Also, the meeting room was great and your staff helped us with any needs we had for making our presentation successful.
Thank you for helping us organize this successful event!
Have a great day!
