June is traditionally the month that brings us so many reasons to celebrate —graduations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and Fathers Day.
Speaking of graduations, congratulations to our long time tasting room manager, Katarina Simic, and her eldest son Luka, on his graduation from Sonoma State! Well done!
We’re also kicking off “Summer School” for the summer months, beginning on June 10 & 11, with Schoolmaster Dave. Club members get priority access – limited space available, so please reserve your session ASAP!
We’ll also hold sessions in July and August: don’t miss this chance to learn something new in the most historic schoolhouse on the mountain!
This June also marks the one-year anniversary of the renovations to the schoolhouse that Anne and Dave undertook last year. It’s hard to believe that 45 years have flown by since they purchased the place as their home back in 1972!
