Santa Rosa, CA – (August 10, 2022) – Balletto Vineyards, a family-owned, estate winery in Sonoma County, is proud to add Allyson Taylor to its team. Allyson joins as Director of Events and brings 20 years of experience in planning and managing events to the position.

“We are excited to have Allyson join our team with her abundant events experience. Our property hosts everything from private events to our annual BBQ and others that feature our estate wines and local grown food when it is in season and available. Having the right person in place to manage and grow our programs will only make the experience at Balletto that much better,” says John Balletto, President & Founder of Balletto Vineyards.  

Prior to joining Balletto’s team, Allyson ran her own event company and managed conferences for large organizations including the State of Alaska and consulted with travel industry companies on best business practices. She has worked for Starz Entertainment as Director of Events and managed a team that planned and executed more than 20 events per month from retreats to large-scale galas.  

Allyson notes, “I am excited to be on this side of the event planning business as I know what event planners need and can help them realize their vision and ensure their event is executed flawlessly. I first met the Balletto’s when their tasting room consisted of a picnic table. It has grown so much, and I admire their dedication to their family, employees, customers, sustainability, and the community. They are kind, loyal, and good people – it is an honor to work for them.”
