The holidays provide us time for relaxation and reflection. 2013 was a great year! Our talented ambassador corps logged thousands of miles attending festivals. Virginia Wine Club President Stewart Reynolds and I had the privilege to touring and tasting the best of the Old Dominion.
Our often unsung back office staff kept Stewart and me on task and on time with a multiplicity of deadlines and commitments. Trust me when I say, without Xen’s proofreading prowess, readers would find countless errors in the VWJ.
When all is said and done, you are the reason we do what we do. I treasure each of your emails (even when they disagree) because it means together we are expanding the footprint of Virginia wine.
I am grateful for your membership, your willingness to agree (and disagree) and your understanding that we are all different. God bless us every one.
And as always, THANK YOU for allow me to be a small part of you Virginia Wine Journey.
