February 13, 2017 (Napa, CA) – Adobe Road Winery, the award-winning boutique winery founded in 2003 by champion race car driver Kevin Buckler of The Racer’s Group, has retained Balzac Communications & Marketing, the leading wine public relations and marketing agency, as their agency of record. The agency will promote the Adobe Road Winery brand to trade, media, and consumers.

“Winners love winners, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Balzac Communications & Marketing,” effuses Kevin Buckler, CEO of Adobe Road Winery. “With their extensive wine expertise and experience on board we are well positioned to promote our ultra-premium portfolio. Our Petaluma Tasting Room and our new winery project under construction on the Petaluma waterfront are outstanding showcases for these award-winning wines.”
