Reaching out to women in the Wine Industry, Wine Women hosted their first Equal Pay Day mini-conference last week. See my newest article published today on this event!
Interested in doing some wine tasting? I'm helping to recruit for this fun gig!
VingDirect helps family wineries grow their direct to consumer sales through consulting services and goal-setting/tracking. One of the services we offer is Mystery Tasting (secret shopping for wineries) and I am looking for help for two particularly large projects. We view this as a fun way to go wine tasting plus a little extra cash - not quite a way to pay the bills - but it is a lot of fun! If interested, please respond with your name and general availability (I need help on both week days and weekends), and I will send more details. Thanks!
Must be 21 or older to participate.
Must have reliable transportation.
Weekends or Weekdays
Sonoma or Napa locations
Paid tasting for you and a friend + $20 reimbursement

VingDirect | Helping Wineries Grow Direct to Consumer Sales
Credit to Tim Atkin & Bianca Bosker! Good to remember that sometimes good things come in familiar packages..."Speaking of which, the days before modern branded wines appeared weren’t some wine making wonderland. For every good producer, there was another one dousing white wines with liberal doses of sulfur to cover the dirty winemaking or adding illegal bags of sugar to make up for unripe grapes. And while the cheap table wines that lurk in bistros, delis and wineries across Europe may be clean now, they can still be surprisingly horrible. The US is no better – plenty of the bulk wine that goes into private label for various outlets is wretched.Faced with the choice, drinkers are often better off choosing the homogenous but reliable mass market wines. Indeed, the modern consumer who buys a bottle of supermarket red on the way home from work can look forward to a much riper, more stable, less flawed wine than your average medieval monarch ever got to enjoy."
My husband say's I'll get a reputation. This is my third article covering pot as it relates to the wine realm, so maybe he is right, although what that reputation might be, I can't say. It is a topic that is pertinent here in CA and across the country, and I was asked to write some pieces. I have found it very interesting to talk with some the the principal players here in the North Bay area, and now find the issue more complex than a simple "vote yes or no". While I don't personally ingest, I find the topic rather fascinating from a business perspective. Cheers!
