It's almost ReSIProcal February!
February is typically a slow month for tasting rooms. ReSIProcal February gives any SIP Certified Vineyard or Winery with a tasting room the opportunity to increase tasting room traffic by offering their wine club members two (2) complimentary tastings at any other participating SIP Certified tasting room.
Sell some bottles, gain new wine club members, share your message of sustainability, and connect consumers with other like-minded brands who run their wine business sustainably when you participate in ReSIProcal February!
To see a list of current participants, visit the ReSIProcal February 2023 Event Page. Please share this link with your staff and customers!
