Members of the Rutherford Dust Society, the organization of wineries and growers in the Rutherford AVA, elected a new Board of Directors at its 12th annual membership meeting:
President: Regina Weinstein, Honig Vineyard & Winery
Vice President: Gretchen Brakesman, The Ranch Winery
Treasurer: Michelle Curtis Harris, Caspar Estate
Secretary: Paul Wagner, Balzac Communications & Marketing
More than 60 members of the Rutherford Dust Society gathered at the Auberge du Soleil resort in February for their annual membership meeting. After thanking departing president Robin Baggett for his hard work the past two years, the members elected new officials and reviewed the organization’s goals and mission. Topics discussed included a wide range of issues including the society’s three areas of focus: building community within Rutherford; building Rutherford as a leader in the community; and outreach to wine media, trade, and consumers.
