SF-Bay Area Chapter Launch: Vineyard Tour, Talk & Tasting

in collaboration with P&G Foundation – virtual/in-person event

If you are in Northern California and interested in alumni activities, we welcome you to the P&G Alumni SF Bay Area chapter!

In true Northern California style, we are launching with a beautiful event in Sonoma. Please join us in Healdsburg for an exclusive wine-tasting afternoon with P&G Alum Karen Francis DeGolia at her winery, Limerick Lane. This Vineyard Tour, Talk, & Tasting will benefit the P&G Alumni Foundation.

About our host alum and the experience:

Karen has the enviable role as the Owner/Proprietor of Limerick Lane Cellars, a 53-acre California estate winery. Karen will give us a tour of her 113-year-old vineyards and the winemaking cellar and lead a talk on wines – e.g., vineyard care, cellar needs, bottling, marketing, tasting tips, etc.

She will also offer both a virtual and in-person optional tasting. Wines are available to purchase and ship before the event, with Karen graciously donating 10% of the proceeds to the P&G Alumni Foundation. For alums in the area on July 14, we will also offer a fun in-person experience, including an optional vineyard dinner.
