Some specific contact situations with individuals and wineries were invaluable. We purposely visited with some new opportunities.
Wade Tyler, Downtown Wine & Cheese
Just being part of it....even 3000 miles away it was exciting to be part of the festivities!!!
Tom Ferraro, Millbrook Inn by T & T
Our attendance this year was 100% virtual. Many of the sessions with the wineries and winemakers turned out to be either one on one or very small group, which was nice.
Ben Lin, Anteroom
We attend Premiere because of the relationships we can build with the vintners as well as the opportunity to purchase something from new and up-and-coming properties that we can offer to our clients.
