Tip of the Month WINE TASTINGS


On a recent business trip to Napa, California (home of our NEW West Coast office!) I came across some interesting news when it pertains to wine tasting and planning events. Complimentary instructional wine classes for your corporate groups!
A favorite past time of mine is going from vineyard to vineyard in the Napa Valley Region enjoying the beautiful scenery while tasting (OK...drinking!) some of the best wines California has to offer. While on this trip, I was with one of my best friends, a virgin of the Valley, who takes pride in asking questions...lots of them. While tasting in Beaulieu Vineyards (BV) we, OK....HE (I'll give credit where it's due), came to find out, in between an incredible cabaret from 2005 (....where MY interest was focused), that select local vineyards will send over a sommelier or host a group at their vineyard to conduct an educational wine tasting at NO COST. It's really a great way to have an enjoyable activity at your meeting or conference while being conscious of your budget. Enjoy the grapes!
