Every so often we like to hold an open house for the local wine industry. We feel it's a great way to get to know our winery neighbors, give them more information about all that we have to offer, and, most importantly, encourage learning. On Wednesday, we opened the doors to our Winery Caves, Barrel Chai, and Wine Society Lounge after hours to over 200 local wine industry professionals to share our new releases, appetizers from Executive Chef Will Torres, and a variety of artisan cheeses.
Industry nights allow us to not only foster good will within the local wine community, but to encourage other wineries to learn about us and our wines. We hope that when a guest walks into another tasting room and asks about JUSTIN or asks for a recommendation for a winery that is well known for Bordeaux-style wines that the Tasting Room Attendant will be able to answer their questions or tell the guest about their most recent experience at JUSTIN. We also encourage our own staff to visit other wineries (both local and in other wine regions) to learn more about different wines, other regions and to be able to better answer guests questions or point them in the direction of other wineries we think they might enjoy, should they ask our opinion.
Learning about wine is an ongoing and never-ending process. A process that should be fun! We take learning seriously and encourage everyone on our team to continue to build upon their wine knowledge by participating in wine tastings, visiting other wineries/wine regions, and attending industry nights!
