5 Years of Wine
That’s a little misleading. We’ve been drinking wine for WAY more than five years, but what I mean to say is – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! On May 15th, New Vintage Print officially hit the 5 year mark in our little adventure we call work. As you know, and can tell from our website, we’re heavily involved in the wine industry, constantly looking for ways to improve the look, the feel, the function of wine labels for wineries in the Russian River, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley, as well as Sonoma Coast, American Canyon – well, you get the idea right?
So, what better way to celebrate 5 years of successful business? Well, a winery event of course. Our friends at Wilson Winery put on this event every year for the Children of the Vineyard Workers. It’s a scholarship fund for them to go to school . . .a little background:
In 2002 the Wilson family and Wilson Winery established the “Children of Vineyard Workers Scholarship Fund.” Our ambitious goal is to raise enough money to meet the demands of all deserving applicants and to build the endowment fund for a legacy of ongoing success. We believe that the children of those who work the vineyards of Sonoma County should not be limited in their pursuit of educational opportunities by financial constraints. The Wilson Family will match all funds up to $100,000. 100% of your dollars go directly to the scholarship fund.
So, it’s a good cause and we wanted to help support that cause. So this last Saturday night the four of us (my husband Chris, and my parents, Carl & Joanie) headed out to Soda Rock Winery for a silent (and also a live) auction that included good appetizers, dinner and the best part of all. . self pour wines. Talk about trust! OH, and they had a miniature pony there to bid on. He was awfully cute, but . . probably wouldn’t fly. Anyway, we had a good time, and we bid on (and won) a few things. We figured since we were celebrating 5 years of business, we should buy ourselves something right?
How about a wine fridge and 52 bottles of wine to fill it? Yes please.
