Opportunities, Dates, Deadlines ~ June 2, 2015   


It’s Time For Our Annual Meeting

SAVE the DATE – we’d love to see ALL Wine Road members attend this yearly, informative dinner meeting.  July 15,  5:30-8:30pm at TRIONE WINERY
Please RSVP, to limited to 2 people per winery or lodging. Our focus will be getting everyone up to speed and excited about 2016 and our year of celebration for our 40th Anniversary!


Our 40th “Ruby” Anniversary

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

We still need wristbands back from about 25 wineries and we’d love to hear how many guests you saw – give us a recap.  Thanks


Anne’s leaving us…

It is with great joy and sadness that I announce my final weeks working for Wine Road and with all of you.  I have been offered a placement and partial scholarship to attend the University of Kent in Paris to complete my MA in Creative Writing.   I was encouraged by my past professor, mentor and friend who helped guide my applications and also supplied me with outstanding recommendation letters.  With much deliberation and excitement I have decided to accept the offer! I start this fall and will be heading out to settle in during August.  My last day here at the Wine Road is July 17th but I hope to see most of you before I depart.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and having the chance to work with all of you.

Au Revoir!
