WOW times flies!
Our office continues to be CLOSED until further notice.

Wine Road Event Update

Last week the Board of Directors made the decision to not host Wine & Food Affair this year. There are simply too many unknowns to plan and execute an event in November.
Winter Wineland may be able to happen, in a revised format...to be determined by the rules and requirements in place, as we move forward.
Event information has been updated on our website, so customers are aware, if they were planning to attend in November.
That being said, we are moving into new territory and hoping to develop a paid virtual tasting program that will generate income from ticket sales for Wine Road, and advance wine sales for our members. This is in the early stages of development, we hope to have details in place to begin in September and run through November. More to follow...

Winery Reservation Links

We have added a button on our winery listings that will link visitors directly to your Reservation Page. YOU need to log onto WineRoad.com, then edit your page - fill in the box for Reservations with the landing page you want people to see. If you need visitors to "call for reservations" link to the page on your website with that information.
Our home page now states clearly that reservations are required.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere There's Signs...

They are all in the map box, outside of our office, if you want to pick up additional copies.  
Lodging members will want to have these signs at their properties also.
Office: 1437 Grove Street, Healdsburg
If you have questions about how to be in complience with safety guidelines.
This is the Wine Institutes recommended re-opening guidelines 
This is the Sonoma County Vintner's recommended re-opening guidelines 

My Wine Road

Our July consumer newsletter will go out this Thursday. It's always the 1st Thursday of the month. 60.000 subscribers. 
Be sure to add any new virtual tasting, wine specials, club events (to encourage more club members), facebook live being planned, yoga in the vineyard, hikes...get them all added ASAP.
It would be great to see dates for things happening into August and September, not just July.

Barrel Tasting...remember that?

I still need to collect leftover supplies and ticket money from about 12 wineries. Since our office has been closed this has been on the back burner.
I will be in the office today until 4:00 and next Tuesday 10:00-4:00, so please try to stop by if you have supplies left. I am not here any other days.

Sandra Hess seminars rescheduled.

We were planning two presentations: June 10 & 11, for Storytelling and Consumer Engagement.
They will now both be webinars - NEW DATES - details and links to follow for all that are registered. 
July  7 - Storytelling 8:30-10:00am
July 15 - Consumer Engagement 8:30-10:00am

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....
Last week I had an inquiry from someone looking to come visit with the prospect of moving to the area, so i was able to connect them with Compass Real Estate. 
The more we can all support each other the better.
We are continuing to support these partners via our social media posts...visitors will be back and when they do come back, we hope they connect with our partners.
