Day Six-November 12, 2009
The day is my own. I admit, I miss the hustle and work at the winery. But now I give my arms and back a chance to recover.
My first stop of the day was an unscheduled visit to Van der Heyden winery in the southern end of Silverado Trail. Bruce, the wine club manager at AO suggested I stop by this small winery as he had worked for them some years ago.
Day One-November 7th
Arrived early after a very pleasant flight….in stark contrast to the United flight from last June which was a disaster from the beginning….but I digress.
Met with Alpha Omega National Sales Manager, Chelsea Bellows at the house where I will be staying during my visit this week. Chelsea is an amazing person….perfect for Alpha Omega as she has boundless enthusiasium along with a great attitude. We were very lucky to meet her!
