BATW MEETING – June 21, 2014

10 a.m. – 1 p.m. (tasting and lunch included)

Bella Rosa Event Center
7986 Tesla Road
Livermore, CA 94550

Panel Discussion with Deborah Parker Wong, Tom Riley and Steven Mirassou

Thanks go to Molly Blaisdell, Credentialed General Member and Associate Liaison, for arranging another terrific meeting.

Following our meet-and-greet and business meeting at Bella Rosa, the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association will offer a panel discussion with Deborah Parker Wong, Northern California Editor/Senior Industry Editor, Tasting Panel Magazine; Tom Riley, founder/blogger, The Grape Belt; and Steven Mirassou, owner/winemaker, The Steven Kent Winery & La Rochelle Winery.

After the panel, guests will be seated at tables for guided tasting of wines from Wente Vineyards, Concannon Vineyard, McGrail Vineyards, The Steven Kent Winery and Garre Winery. Lunch will follow the tasting—tapas, style, with five dishes served at stations in the dining room. Each dish is intended to pair with one of the wines from the guided tasting.

Livermore Valley will provide a VIP pass for complimentary tastings and a map of Livermore Valley wineries to all attendees, hoping they will visit the local wineries after the BATW event at Bella Rosa.

We will provide a list of hotels offering media rates ASAP so that attendees can make reservations in advance.

Note: Attendance at this event is limited to 50 attendees (30 members and no more than 20 guests). Please RSVP to EventBrite via the email invitation sent to you by meeting coordinator Molly Blaisdell. Registrations may not be made through the BATW website.
