“Scheid Family Wines first planted vineyards in Monterey County in early 1972,” says Heidi M. Scheid, executive vice president of Scheid Family Wines. “As winegrape growers at heart, we are extremely focused on sustainably farming our land for quality and being fully-integrated from grapes to glass. We are excited about the opportunity to produce Mō zāik and bring our estate grown wines to the clientele of Benchmark.” 

Scheid says, “Our traditions of family, sustainability, outstanding value and world-class wines are a natural fit with Benchmark’s goal of excellence in global hospitality.”

With summer weather year round, Carmel Valley Ranch is taking full advantage by cultivating a summer camp style environment that’s perfect for everything from corporate meetings to spectacular outdoor weddings.  

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains on California’s Central Coast, Carmel Valley Ranch occupies 500 acres. Amongst all of this, they offer nearly 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, as well as 30,000 square feet of outdoor space.  

 

Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

 

After two-years of refurbishing, General Mendoza, general manager of Sheraton Pasadena, revealed the completion of the hotel’s multimillion-dollar renovation. The property is excited to offer its reimagined accommodations, meeting space and public areas including its Restaurant Soleil.
