With bubbles in hand, hobnob with the wittiest, brightest, cleverest and funniest in the world - members and friends of Women for WineSense! Come network and create some of your own buzz with old and new friends. Hear all the buzz as they announce their 2013 plans for the Napa/Sonoma chapter of Women for WineSense. But even if you're not a member, please join them to sample some special wines.
For its second year at Gloria Ferrer, “Bubbles, Brix and Buzz II” adds a virtual tasting to the festivities, offering Women for WineSense members nationwide, as well as interested tweeters, the opportunity to participate via tweet chat, using the hashtag #WWS-GloriaFerrer as well as the opportunity to purchase Gloria Ferrer’s wine at a discount the night of the event only.
Bring your friends. Make new friends. Exchange business cards with other colleagues in the wine and hospitality industries. Event activities include meeting with representatives of the chapter’s many professional roundtables to learn about their unique roles in serving the wine industry. From finance to human resources, marketing to winemaking, their specialty roundtable groups, a free benefit to professional members, meet periodically to exchange knowledge, support one another and further their skills to serve the wine industry.
Of course, the evening wouldn’t be complete without a big round of applause for the hosts at Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards! Not only have they generously donated their beautiful facilities for this event, but they also support women in and around the wine industry. (After all, the winery is named in honor of a leading lady in this esteemed industry!)
Eva Bertran, vice president of marketing at Gloria Ferrer, will speak to the assembled group about their wines. The winery will also be extending a special, one night only discount to attendees on wine purchases made on the night of the event.
Finally, Women for WineSense will also hold a raffle and silent auction benefiting their annual scholarship fund.
They welcome both WWS members and non-members to this unique event. Tickets in advance are $15 for WWS student member; $25 for WWS members; and $35 for non-members. Tickets go up to $45 at the door.
