    It's been just over one month since I started mny new job as a Wine Rep for a nationwide distributor.

    Well, yesterday I found out that I have earned an incentive trip to Sonoma and Napa Valley!!!!!

    OMG!!!! I can't even believe it!!!!

    Only a month into this job and I've earned a TRIP!?!?!? Well, no doubt I LOVE my job ... although it has taken a lot of the needed time away from focusing on pre-wedding stuff. But it goes to show that the dedication I have put into the job in this first month has certainly paid off!!!

    I never would have imagined this! In one month, sales to my accounts are up 33% over this month last year and cases of wine sold are 152 more than this month last year.

    So, anyway -- my trip is from May 1-4 ... which means we return from our DR on Sunday, April 27 and I leave out for CA on Thursday, May 1. WOW!

    Anyone live in the San Francisco area? I know I will be busy, busy during my trip ... but on Saturday night, I will be staying in San Francisco to catch a Sunday flight. So, if anyone is in the area, let me know!!!!

            I am not sure yet, but the company sponsoring the trip is Majestic Fine Wines, which represents all of the Kendall Jackson vineyards and wineries as well as numerous others, including Cambria, Murphy-Goode, La Crema, Matanzas Creek, Legacy .... and I know it is a packed itinerary. I think we do like 10 wineries a day. Yeesh!

            Hopefully I'll get a complete itinerary and can share it.

            I remember your fabulous Napa wedding. Which winery was it?

            we actually didn't get married at a winery, but did a wine tour the next day. We went to Franciscan, V. Sattui, Diamond Oaks, and Peju Province. All are on the main highway in Napa.
            10 in one day, are you tasting at all of them...holy cow you all will be wasted, but that will be fun.
            We did a private tour at V. Sattui and they took us in the back where everything is actually made and stored, very cool.
            I would recommend trying to get a cave tour in somehow if you can. I have never done that but my aunt did one time and said it was amazing.
