Hello to all of our Wine Road wineries –
Last year several of you attended the FIRST EVER Rancho Mirage Wine & Food Festival.
Wine Road also hosted a trade tasting with 4 of our winery members, focusing on Rhones.
The trade tasting was very well received, with 40 folks in attendance.
The organizer (copied above) has just sent out the information for this years event.
As usual, he is working to make the event even bigger and better than last year. At this particular event the focus is on WINE, there are no beer or spirits being poured.
Sign up forms attached…
Here is what is set in stone for now.
