CA Wine Month
The CA Wine Month program is about ready for us to format and post to our site. PLEASE REVIEW IT. We have a full page ad running in the SF Chron on Aug. 23, an ad in Alaska Airlines magazine in Sept and we’ll begin to push out on social media begining Aug. 29.

Art of Oak
We’re busy selling sponsorships for our Art of Oak program as part of our 40th Anniversary celebration, which kicks off in Jan. 2016.
Sponsoring a barrel is $500.
Sponsoring and buying the completed barrel is $1000.
All funds from the sale of the barrels will be donated to the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts, Childrens Arts Program.
This is a fun project which will gain a ton of exposure; while the artists are working on the barrels, when they are completed and on display and finally when those not sold in advance are auctioned off on May 14, 2016. We’d love you to be a part of this program. Details here
Questions please contact Mindy Joyce who is managing this program.

Have your heard, we’ll be 40 in 2016.
Starting with our Breakfast with the Winemaker series in January, we have something planned for EVERY month of 2016. From “selfie frames”, to our gala “Ruby Affair”, a family-friendly community festival, Magical Mystery Tours and we’re even working on Wine Road Wine Flights at restaurants and a documentary film is in the works.
