Seaplane Tours Paying Dividends
KELSEYVILLE – In the late 1800s visitors to Lake County arrived by stagecoach, and steamers provided trans-portation between towns located on the shores of Clear Lake. Today, the Lake County Winegrape Commission is bringing guests to the area by
seaplane and offering tours of wineries and vineyards throughout the county.
Hosting wine writers, sommeliers, radio and television personalities, and consultants via the seaplane rides/wine tours is paying off for Lake County, according to Winegrape Commission President Shannon Gunier.
Gunier Invited to be Member of Symposium Planning Committee
KELSEYVILLE – Lake County Winegrape Commission President Shannon Gunier is “one of a select group of people” invited to participate on the Unified Wine & Grape
Symposium’s Program Development Committee for the 19th annual symposium in 2013.
The Unified Symposium is the largest wine and grape show in the United States. Held each year in January at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, the show attracted a record number of attendees (12,400) earlier this year.
