A September to Remember

There are some days when the score of the game does not matter… well, not nearly as much as it does on other days. The goal is always to get “The Win.” And yes, it was disappointing that we couldn’t offer our clients the TOTAL package, but everything outside of the score was top-notch.
One-hundred Bounty Hunter (and baseball) fans packed the Audi Legends Club at AT&T Park last Saturday for an exciting showdown between our San Francisco Giants and the LA Dodgers. It was a great game – we just didn’t come out on top. But as I write this post we are currently 7.5 games ahead of the Dodgers, so like I said, it’s OK we didn’t win this one…
This was our fourth trip to the Legends Club and it was fun to see a lot of familiar faces. We are starting to have quite the following to these games. For this latest game we partnered with Alpha Omega Winery. The Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and II Proprietary Red were available for clients to enjoy along with colorful anecdotes from Winemaker Jean Hoefliger, and Director of Operations & National Sales, Chelsea Bellows. As if that was not enough, Gina Castillo from Don Julio made some delicious peach margaritas and poured samples of their “70” Claro and “1942” AƱejo. And for the showstopper… enter Mike Krukow.
Mike Krukow is the former Giants starting pitcher and is currently the Giants television color commentator and beloved by the fans. There were some real once-in-a-lifetime moments created as Kruk (as he’s known by), posed for pictures, fielded questions and signed autographs.
Once the 2013 MLB schedule is released, we’ll be pleased to announce the games that we will be attending... of course we hope you can join us!
If you’re looking for something fun to do in Napa this winter, make your travel plans for the second week in November in time for Flavor! Napa Valley, a 5 day celebration of wine, food and fun. We will be serving ribs at First Taste Napa on 11/14, pouring our wines at the Appellation Trail event 11/16, and we are sponsoring the Dinner with Napa Valley Winemakers on 11/17. Hope to see you there!
