 Family Winemakers this Sunday!
This Sunday, August 17 Tasting WineMatch is excited to be exhibiting AND sponsoring in partnership with Family Winemakers of California the first Industry Technical Forum (free to FWC members) at the Family Winemaker's event at the Event Center in San Mateo.

This is the best winery event of the year in Northern California with restaurants, wine bars and wine enthusiasts all coming together to taste wines from small family-owned wineries that people normally would not have the opportunity to taste due to the small volume or limited distribution channels.

WineMatch augments this business perfectly by offering wine enthusiasts on the internet the ability to try wines they normally wouldn't be able to try. By matching your taste to the wines, WineMatch brings unique wines from small family owned wineries directly to the consumer.

Family Winemakers of California represents wine industry issues before the California Legislature and applicable state regulatory agencies. Issues that impact small producers drive our focus. Without an active voice and presence in Sacramento other groups will make decisions that influence your ability to succeed as a vintner or grape grower. FWC remains the primary vintner-oriented advocate for inclusiveness on laws, regulations and industry practices for wine producers.

The association also provides marketing assistance to its members through its well-known wine tastings, as well as its web portal for consumers searching for wineries that ship to states that allow direct-to-consumer sales.
This year the tasting will take place on Sunday in the usual format. There will only be one day this year. Beginning at 9:30a.m. there will be an educational seminar on how to get listed higher on google, how to convert website visitors into customers and other technical tips for wineries.
