For our 21st Birthday, we gave ourselves a little virtual spa treatment and gave the site a facelift. Still all the good stuff you like, but it should be easier to get to on your phone and tablets. As always, tasting details on the front page and on the Events & News page. The fresh look also gave us an opportunity upgrade the bones of the site, which will make some of future activities easier. Check out the improved calendar and events, which makes it easier to forward events to friends on Facebook and Twitter, as well as better ability to use RSS feeds and add tastings to your calendar.
