#TrendingWine came to life as a fun and interactive way to enjoy wine that also gives back to causes in need. Produced by ME Wine in affiliation with David Fulton Winery in Napa Valley.
David Fulton Winery is the oldest continuously owned and operated family vineyard in California. David Fulton was an innovator and pioneer of the wine industry planting his first experimental grapevines in Napa valley in 1858. He also invented the one horse plow which increased yields allowing for a way to monetize in farming launching the industry of wine.
ME Wine is the next generation striving to be the future pioneers and innovators of the new wine industry.
Here is where we, well just Eve at the moment, must interrupt. These wines looked interesting so I called in some bigger guns AGAIN to do the tasting with me.
Joining me for “collective tasting notes” are Simon and Shannon Mee (Owners of Newhall Refinery and Egg Plantation), Bruce and Liz Pack (“Chef Liz” has penned a few recipes for our website) and Claudia Sheridan (Owner Small Business Breakthrough, and like myself, a Level 2 Certification from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust).

A note from Eve again. The notes are all me. My pals liked the wine and loved the marketing. Two went home with the bracelets that came wrapped around the bottles and then social networked photos of the fun labels.
