Fall 2017: Board Retreat – Napa, CA

Dear Colleague,
Welcome to WineAmerica’s Fall Retreat in the stunning, iconic Napa Valley.
Our annual gathering will have three distinct half-day sessions: WineAmerica Business Meeting; Strategic Planning; and State and Regional Associations Advisory Council roundtable. The first two sessions on Thursday, November 9 will occur at the historic Beringer winery, where we will also savor an elegant dinner. Transportation will be provided. Friday morning’s SRAAC session will be held at the Hampton Inn & Suites, our host hotel.
These are exciting times for WineAmerica and the American wine industry. Please join us in Napa to share the excitement.
Jim Trezise, President
