Garden City, NY (PRWEB) – The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Eugenia Romeo as a 2017-2018 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in entrepreneurship. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members, a thriving eChapter and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Eugenia into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”
In 1997, Eugenia Romeo and her husband purchased land with a vineyard in downtown Calistoga, CA, in the heart of the Napa Valley. According to the company’s website, “Romeo Vineyards produces elegant and enduring wines from vines forty- two years old…” The vineyard has 25 acres, 16.5 of which were planted in 1971.
Originally from Manhattan, Ms. Romeo’s rich family history goes back 14 generations to Ireland. As winemakers, she and her husband are respectful not only of the vineyard land but of the wildlife who call it home. Blue Heron Vineyard is named for a blue heron that was killed by a poacher on the property years ago. Today, two herons roam freely on the vineyard.
The vineyard’s wine label is called “Sempre Vive,” which in Latin means “Always Alive.” Among the many award-winning wines produced at the vineyard are whites, roses and reds. Customers may enjoy these wines at the on-site tasting room that was opened in 2014. There is plenty of outdoor seating and people can reserve the space for catered events. The tasting room also features a pizza oven and portable bar. Discounts are available to military personnel as well as members of the vineyard’s exclusive wine club.
