Industry Day success!

Well, we had another very successful Industry Day!  We had tasting room managers from Midnight Cellars, Windward Vineyards, Red Soles Winery and tasting room employees from Castoro Cellars, Veris Cellars/JanKris Winery, Rotta Winery, Meridian Vineyards and Clayhouse Wines.  We also had some friends from the Elkhorn Bar in San Miguel, Safe Haven Wine Services, Hospitality Catering and lovely former innkeeper from the Vine Street Inn.

The groups split up between the East side and the West side all day.  One group enjoyed lunch at Kelly’s Restaurant at the Hunter Ranch Golf Course on the East side.  We haven’t yet included Kelly’s as a lunch option but it think we will now, thanks in no small part, to the friendly insistence of one of our industry sistren.  While several of the others on the West side ate at the absolutely duh-lish-us Farmstand 46.

Industry Days are such a nice way for us to show off our service to the winery staff we bring our customers to, as well as, a nice, laid back networking opportunity for everyone who “hops on” for the day.  If you’re part of the industry, keep an eye out for our next one in June!  If you’d like to be added to the mailing list, please send us a note through our “contact” page on our site.  Please include your full name, winery (or affiliation) name, title and phone number.

Until the next drop.
