A Note from Commission President

The February issue of the grower newsletter is dedicated to the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Experience, which takes place May 4 – 5 at Chacewater Winery in Kelseyville, Calif.

The event includes an International Symposium for trade and media on May 4 and a Grand Tasting for the wine enthusiasts on May 5.

Please pass this information along to your wine industry contacts and any Sauvignon Blanc producers you know. Remind them that registration is open for wineries and winery associations that would like to pour at the Grand Tasting.

Finally, we are interested in speaking to businesses who see the value of connecting their company with this event. We’ve put together a package of sponsorship opportunities for business of all sizes.

Cheers,
