Six months ago Jaime and I were sitting around the campfire talking and she said, "would you like to do an art retreat at our new trailer pond at Alta Colina Winery?" The rest is history....
Meet Jaime Holm, owner of Tinker Tin Trailer Co., and Maggie Tillman, part of a father/daughter duo that make Alta Colina Vineyard and Winery an amazing success. "The partnership between Tinker Tin Trailer Co. and Alta Colina began with a combined vision to offer guests a unique and unforgettable experiencing, camping in a vintage trailer in the middle of a beautiful, organically grown vineyard. The Trailer Pond allows two family owned small businesses a chance to share their piece of the American dream while providing guests a one of a kind wine+camping experience."
Our first HapPy gO SmiLe ART Retreat started off with a warm welcome from Maggie. She shared with us the history of the vineyard while we enjoyed some wine tasting and appetizers in the barrel room.
After wine tasting we were off to the trailers. Everyone was excited to find out which cute, vintage trailer they were staying in!
Kiki found her trailer!
Cheers! After dinner we had a cupcake toast and s'mores with our wine!
Then off to bed we went serenaded by the frog symphony!
Rise & shine! In the morning a delicious, catered breakfast by Heirloom Catering was served.
After breakfast we took an inspiration walk through the vineyard up to the deck.
Time to break out the paints and get messy! Talk about the ultimate wine & paint party!
Everyone enjoyed the afternoon creating, laughing, eating cupcakes, and drinking wine! Some even found time for a nap!
What a truly magical weekend! Every detail has been thought out on this property, even the bathroom, to ensure you have an awesome experience.
HaHaaaa! oh gosh I just might love red gingham a little to much! If you would like to join us for our next HapPy gO ART Retreat, on Oct 6-8, email me at email@example.com to reserve your spot! Keep creating....Barb
