I have never attended one of these events before and was just in awe of all the wine club members that attended this event. One, they were there to pick up their Wine Club of new releases and two, they got to taste all the existing wines and the new releases they were about to take home.
It was great watching the club members taste all the wines and especially the new ones. One of the my favorite things to do is to watch peoples facial expressions when they taste. And wonder why they didn't have the same reaction I did..
The winery provided wine munchies, which is always a nice touch. The music was great! The musician was Haris Blackwood, she is such a hoot! There was a photo area set up with props to get impromptu photos of the members.. Which later made it to Facebook.. Kudos on getting your members involved! Who doesn't like seeing themselves having fun? This does a couple of things. One it creates interaction of the members and if they are on Facebook and haven't already done so already, to "LIKE" Oak Knoll Winery.
I got to meet Marg, one of the founders of the winery. I met Jeff, the winemaker, I got to see Greg, again. I met Amanda and Nadine who work in the tasting room and the winery dog, Lucee, who by the way was sporting a very sexy collar which caused some money to be placed there.
I really appreciate the invitation to participate in such a fun event. Oak Knoll Winery does alot of events throughout the year. I encourage you to visit their site for a list of them.. The one thing I am looking forward to is the Music on the Lawn.
If you are reading this and attended the event, please leave me a comment!
