Our 40th “Ruby” Anniversary

This week you can expect to receive a colorful newsletter outlining our plans for events (big and small) throughout 2016 – as we plan for a year of celeWR_40_Logo_RAYear copybrations. You’ll also receive the sign-up form for the various events and social media programs, as well as donation requests of used barrels (for art) and wine for a raffle.  We are getting SO excited about our plans! 

We are also seeking sponsorships for various events. I’ve attached the form you can share with vendors you think may be interested in supporting the Wine Road and getting their name in front of our members and visitors.

We need to know which restaurants consistently carry your wines, as we’ll be reaching out and helping them create Wine Road flights for 2016. Send restaurant name and their best contact to Nessia at Stuhlmuller  who will be overseeing the “wine flight” project.

Monterey Wine Festival

Anne attended the Monterey Wine Festival June 6-7, handing out Wine Road maps, collecting emails from guests and generally sharing our story with attendees (4000+ this year). We had 8 winery members who also attended, taking orders, signing up wine club members and making new connections! This is a great event for us, we will most likely attend next year and again help cover table costs so more of our members are able to participate.
