A to Z Wineworks capped off three days of anniversary celebrations with an industry party at the winery Saturday, August 12th. Roughly 500 members of the wine and hospitality trade attended, donating more than 400 books for Yamhill County’s YES program in support of the “Literacy from A to Z” theme.
A to Z launched a new Rosé “Bubbles” at the party and will donate a portion of all Bubbles case sales to Oregon’s SMART (Start Making a Reader Today) program. Saturday morning, the group hosted a tasting of the Rock & Hammer wines they make for partner NBA San Antonio Spurs Coach, Greg Popovich. These never-for-sale wines raised funds for Oregon’s Literary Arts.
Deb Hatcher, A to Z Founder and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer shared, “We are delighted and gratified that the little brand we started in my kitchen 15 years ago is today one of Oregon’s most popular and top-selling wine brands. It was a joy to celebrate with our staff and so many of our colleagues and best business partners who have contributed to our mutual successes.”
