Nearly a dozen book events are planned to date (see calendar link below) and we encourage you to host your own event featuring the book and let us know so we can help promote the event.
We encourage all profiled wineries to host consumer events during Down to Earth (D2E) month this April so we can promote these events as part of our overall D2E month/book campaign. Post your event to be included in our D2E publicity and landing page. Our D2E tool kit includes ideas and tools for planning events.
