2 BIG Changes on WineRoad.com - please look
NOW - when you click on Lodgings - you will see a photo of each lodging property, in alpha order. Then you can click on the link for more info. It used to be just a list of names...but a picture is worth 1000 words. We love this!
NOW - when you click on Wine Awards, you see a list of wineries that have entered their awards. Click on the name, to see all of their awards in a tile format. This is a huge improvement!
LAST CALL for editing our Walk-ins Welcome list of wineries - click on the link below and let us know if you want to be added to the list.
PHOTOS needed - If you happen to be a winery with a sandwich sign out front or on your driveway that says - Walk-Ins Welcome - we need a photo of it.
We’d like 1-2 people next to the sign, preferable with a glass of wine in their hand - pointing to the sign, or leaning on the sign - some cute pose :-)
If you could take a photo and send it to me that would be great. firstname.lastname@example.org We will be creating some social posts with them.

Saturday, is many peoples favorite with the West Coast Chowder Celebration serving up samples of the Chefs best efforts. “Only professional chefs are allowed to be involved” and the results are stunning.
