Opportunities, Dates, Deadlines ~ April 14, 2015             


Member “Meet & Greet”

We encourage ALL Wine Road members to save the date for our next “meet and greet” planned for May 13th from 11:00-1:00 at Rodney Strong Vineyards. This is an opportunity for lodging members to each have their own table to display their rack cards, photos, business cards etc, and for winery members to meet the lodgings, schedule tastings and share comp tasting cards.
Rodney Strong will be hosting and providing pizza and salad for lunch and we’ve invited our lodgings to bring their favorite dessert to share. We hope to have 1-2 people from each property join us (wineries and lodgings). Please RSVP to
