|Guild and Grapes 2012 Recap|
by Brandon Grande
On Friday, October 19th PGA Northwest, hosted their 4th annual "Guild and Grapes" event, in the heart of San Francisco. The day kicked off with a delicious luncheon on the patio of Sen’s Restaurant over looking the Bay, which was followed by an incredible exclusive behind the scenes tour and decadent dessert reception at Pixar.
Guests continued the adventure up to the renowned Napa Valley traveling in eco friendly style thanks to Bauer Transportation. Silverado Resort and Spa provided the weekend accommodations and Friday night’s reception and dinner at Raymond Vineyards was nothing short of spectacular. The fun continued Saturday with private tastings and custom tours from Keever Family Vineyards, Trinchero Napa Valley, Charles Krug, and Niebaum Coppolla. Along the tour TurnkeyHD provided a tasty picnic lunch while showing off their bio diesel production sprinters.
The weekend was a complete success and it would not have been possible without the generous donations of our sponsors Advanced Systems Group, DTC, Beyond Pix and The San Mateo/Silicon Valley Film Commission.
Everyone had a fantastic time while making new friends and connections reminding us of why Guild and Grapes is such a special event.
