Pine Ridge Vineyards in Napa Valley announced the opening of Cellar 47, its new tasting alcove located in the Stags Leap District Winery. It was named for the 47 acres of estate vineyards they own within the district.

The room, which was designed by architect Michael Guthrie, can host exclusive parties for up to 30 people. There will be two options for tasting, the Savor Pine Ridge. which will be offered daily at 11 a.m., and The Appellation Tasting, which occurs daily at 2 p.m. The Savor Pine Ridge tasting features five cabernet sauvignons, while The Appellation Tasting features a vertical tasting from Napa Valley vineyards. Both tastings are paired with a food sampling.

“This new alcove is warm and intimate and provides a great place to showcase our Stags Leap District cabernet sauvignon along with our other best-of-class Napa Valley wines,” says Michael Beaulac, winemaker and general manager, Pine Ridge Vineyards.

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
