Introducing the Premiere Napa Valley Social Media Crew

It's February in the Napa Valley, which means Premiere Napa Valley is right around the corner! For those who don't know, Premiere Napa Valley is a wine auction that raises funds for the NVV to promote, protect and enhance the Napa Valley - the NVV's annual 'bake sale' so-to-speak. With over 500 trade and media coming to Napa Valley for Premiere - both for the actual event on February 23 and for countless related events the week prior, including the Symposium for Professional Wine Writers - it has turned into an annual homecoming for those in the industry to spend quality time with winery owners and winemakers.

Of course, the wines of Premiere Napa Valley are what make this event so special. Crafted by winemakers at our member wineries throughout the Napa Valley, Premiere wines are one-of-a-kind lots are made specifically for this event, allowing winemakers to let their creative juices flow. Examples include a new single-vineyard wine, a blend of top barrel lots that is available only through Premiere, or a wine crafted by mutiple winemakers working together on a joint lot.

There are so many interesting stories to tell the week of Premiere Napa Valley, both about the wines and the events going on throughout the Valley, that this year we've engaged a Premiere Napa Valley Social Media Crew - a group of social-media savvy vintners to help us share the excitement of Premiere with our fans and followers. We extend a huge thank you to these crew members!

Stephanie Gibbons, Rombauer Vineyards (@RombauerVino)
Christophe Smith, Titus Vineyards (@TitusVyds)

This week and into next each crew member will be writing guest blog posts for UNFILTERED. On Twitter, along with following the #PNV13 twitter handle, keep an eye out for tweets from these wineries - and, of course, @NapaVintners - leading up to and during Premiere. These folks will be our eyes and ears throughout the Valley - and your back-stage pass into Premiere Napa Valley.

Cheers to Premiere and to our #PNV13 vintner social media mavens!
