 Family Winemaker March 15 Event in Pomona!
This March, Family Winemakers is having their one southern California event at the Fairplex in Pomona. If you are a family-owned winery, you really should be there to reach a whole set of restaurants, local wine retailers and serious wine enthusiasts.

Family Winemakers and WineMatch are now partnered to offer an even better experience for you at the Family Winemakers events. Sign up for WineMatch to profile your wines before February 28. WineMatch will provide QR codes to set up in front of each of your wines at the event. Consumers can easily download the free WineMatch iPhone app and scan the QR code at your table and keep track of the wines they like. Also, wineries can keep track of the consumers that came to the event and see which wines they liked the most!

Over the years we have participated, there are so many wines that never show up at the local retailer, but they are absolutely fabulous. A lot of the family-run wineries do not have the distribution channels set up to be at retailers, but they have fantastic wine that are "under the radar". WineMatch and Family Winemakers bridge this gap so consumers can deal directly with the winery, thus maintaining reasonable profit margins.

Since its founding in the year 1991, Family Winemakers of California has presented an Annual Tasting. Originally, the Tasting was developed as a trade-only type event; an opportunity for member-wineries and California's wine trade to gather together and talk about the issues foremost in the minds of industry members while tasting great wine. Now that it is open to consumers, they can expect to be surprised by the great wines here that they can only get from the winery.
As Family Winemakers represents family-owned, smaller and boutique wineries, the tasting is a unique opportunity to showcase the winemaking craftsmanship of vintners from across the state.

Let this be the year that you extend your reach to the consumers and when signing up for the event, you may want to take us up on our WineMatch offers, with pricing that is only offered to Family Winemakers wineries.
