2013 Membership…it is not too early.

You will find the SHW webpage had been updated with the membership form for 2013, in case you couldn’t download the newsletter. Just go to: http://www.sachomewine.com/membership/ Then click on the form, print it and mail!

By the way if that happens to you (unable to download… newsletters or forms from those blast blogs) just go to http://www.sachomewine .com, click on Newsletters and do it there. Anything I send on a “blast” is also on the main SHW webpage so you can find it, try using the SEARCH feature on the TOP of the webpage.

December 2012 – The Grapevine

We’ll be partying at the December 16 SHW Holiday Party so there won’t be a technical meeting in December.  We’ll see you at the January 16, 2013 meeting when Randall Grahm, owner and winemaker at Bonny Doon Vineyard shares his viewpoints on the future of wine.  Come a little early as the house will be packed that evening. More meeting info in the January The Grapevine.

December’s The Grapevine lists the incoming executive board who were elected at the November 2012 meeting.  Also, the last page of the newsletter is the 2013 membership form.  Thanks for completing it to keep our database updated.  Membership forms and checks may be mailed to the address at the bottom of the form or you can bring both to the next meeting.

Happy Holidays!
