Curbside is still going strong

Make sure our Car Hop Wine Shop page has you listed if you are offering this service. This is the link to review our listing. Let me know (  if you need to be added or removed. We are about to do another big digital campaign to promote curbside. 

Tasting Rooms Are Open...we're trying to get that message out.

We have created a collection of videos, which we will be sharing on all platforms. We had a 1/2 page ad in the SF Chronicle on Aug. 2nd, and we have a robust digital campaign running. 

Inquiring Minds Want To Know...

Is your winery doing temp checks for your guests and/or your employees?
If so, what system are you using, what is the process like? Are you using a kiosk or a handheld? What's working, what has been an issue?  Let me know

Please share links to our Partners (shown below)

If you are sending out email, newsletters and doing social posts, it would be fantastic if you could include our partners.
Let visitors know Pure Luxury is here to drive them around, Safari West is back welcoming folks to their property, Visit Santa Rosa and Stay Healdsburg are great links as people are planning their trips.... 
The more we can all support each other the better.
