Winter 2016 EW Quarterly Newsletter

This version of Winter newsletter is going out to a few you that have expressed interest in Entrepreneur Wines and our “philanthropic” approach to social impact.

We’ve created a new website at http://entrepreneurwines.com describing our approach for those of you new to the concept.

2016 will be a great year for Entrepreneur Wines and its sister organization, the Gratitude Network. This Spring, we’ll release our 2014 Widdoes Pinot Noir and 2013 Chardonnay. See an invitation below for our May 1st Barrel Tasting, and several more events.

We hope you’ll come to one or more of these events and/or share we’re doing via this newsletter with several friends. Our goal is to double the club this year and create even more excitement for our growing member base!
