Cleveland is the base for “Ohio Wines” and they have invited us to participate in a unique tasting, showcasing Sonoma County wines, along side Ohio Wines.

Invite your wine club members to our grand tasting, take orders, hand out wine club information and build your email/contact list. If you already have distribution in Ohio, you will be able to connect with your vendors.

The press in Ohio are already chomping at the bit to tell this story of cooperation & collaboration.

The state of Ohio is contributing to cover some of the costs, Giant Eagle (grocery chain – largest wine retailer in area) is very excited to connect with more Sonoma County wineries as well as several wholesalers we have already talked with.

Working with Ohio Wines we will be

hosting a Grand Tasting at the

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

This will include wine, food, live music, and a silent auction

We anticipate 50 press/trade and 250-300 consumers.

· Wine Road and Ohio Wines are paying all costs associated with the event.

· Wineries will need to pay their travel, lodging and meals.

· Wine Road will reimburse each winery $100 as an incentive to participate.

Contracts are signed, this is confirmed – now we need YOU to join us!

Our Goal – 30 Wineries Representing Wine Road Sonoma County
