Member Memo - Dec. 3, 2019
WINERY HOLIDAY HOURS are posted online - go to, look at the VERY top of the home page for the link. Are your hours correct? Do you need to be added to the list? I'm letting you know where the link is, so you can let customers know where the link is - we continue to update it, as more of you send in your hours.

It's time to start sharing the links and event details to your wine club and followers on social.
Help us spread the word.  We have now sold 1200 tickets.  Goal is 4500.

Here we go again...

"THINK with Google"

This is a great resource for all of us. Although we may not have the budget or staff to implement all of the ideas we find in "Think", it certainly helps us think about new ways to sell our area, reach our customers and increase sales. I'd highly suggest making this a link you subscribe to. It can be inspiring and motivational.
