Wines will ship prior to the event weekend. CA only.
On the event weekend, we will have a combination of live streaming (for those wineries interested) and pre-recorded videos on YouTube, so customers can taste along with winemakers throughout the weekend.
Wine Road will purchase wine from participating wineries at 50% off, sell at full retail. All done via a special license from the ABC, which we can utilize 3 times per year.   
Sign-ups END Thursday...  this is the link to register, the password is WFA2020
We need MIXED cases, so we are limiting the number of certain varietals, so we don't end up with 40 bottles of cabernet for example. 
Wine Road will buy the exact number of bottles that were ordered, we will pay as we place the order. Wineries will need to deliver wine to us on the specified date (Oct. 28-29).

Annual assessments are due. If you need the forms, they can be downloaded here: Wineries   Lodgings

BIG THANKS to everyone that already renewed! Sincerely appreciated. 
We mailed a 2nd notice last week to everyone that has not yet renewed. If you do not plan to renew, please just shoot me a note so I don't continue to reach out -
