February 4th and the 5th, Winner Circle Events had the pleasure of planning and designing a retreat for event planners up in Santa Ynez, California. The planners retreat was for event planners to get out of their normal routine, stretch their thinking, deepen their bond with other event planners, and strengthen their communication – all while enjoying the Central California Coast.
On day one, February 4th, event planners from the Southern California area made their way up to the Central California Coast to check-in to the beautiful Roblar Farm Estate, a renovated luxury ranch style house with an infinity pool and hot tub located in Santa Ynez. This gorgeous estate can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests total. Which would be great for the bridal party to stay the weekend of a wedding, for ten special guests for a milestone birthday party, a girls weekend, or a family retreat. What ever the event, Roblar Farm is the ideal location.
Roblar Farm also has an event venue and working farm. Have you seen the black barn? It’s a perfect setting for a wedding, anniversary, or any gathering! See the photos below.
Appetizers were passed and conversations were flowing, all while enjoying cocktails from the bar provided by K’Syrah Catering. Plus, Roblar Winery provided their delicious wines.
Community of Over Competition!
This amazing group of event industry professionals celebrated with local vendors from the Santa Ynez area in the Roblar Farm Black Barn.

Cheers to a Fabulous Evening!
Day two / February 5th
Started off with everyone getting up and ready at the Roblar Farm Estate. Haha! Which was a little difficult since we all stayed up drinking wine and chatting until the early hours of the morning. But we all got up and were ready to start our day.
First stop was Forage Florals Shop in Santa Ynez, Ca. for coffee and a continental breakfast. Not to mention, fun conversation!
Santa Ynez Inn
After a tour at the beautiful Santa Ynez Inn we all took a quick drive over to the Danish town of Solvang. Which is about 10 minutes away from Santa Ynez Inn.
Once we all arrived at The Landsby, we met up with Barry who gave us a tour of the hotel.
Whispering Rose Ranch
After we all finished our delicious brunch at The Landsby, we headed over to the Whispering Rose Ranch in Solvang, CA.
Enjoyed these two days with amazing planners and sad the event is over. Like any event, can’t wait to plan the next!
