Member Memo - Dec. 10, 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.

We are going to continue to encourage people to "sip Sonoma", by sponsoring a photo contest.

Check out the details here #SipSonoma  

It's time to start sharing the links and event details to your wine club and followers on social.
