Wine Road Board Retreat 2012: Jenner Inn & Cottages & Restaurant
Wine Road, 35 years in the making, is run by a volunteer Board of Directors, made up of ten winery members, three lodging members, and facilitated/implemented by our ED, Beth Costa, and her staff, Lynn Thomas, Wine Road Office Manager, and me, TR, Wine Road Member & Guest Concierge. Annually, in April, the Board takes a day to retreat to review, relaunch and regroup All Things Wine Road. This year, the Retreat took us to Jenner Inn & Cottages & Restaurant, in Jenner-by-the-Sea, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean at Goat Rock. (Our host, Richard Murphy, is a founding member of Wine Road, and also, one of the longest standing current members of same!)
Many of us stayed the night, enjoying being a “regular guest along the Wine Road”. We all are amazed by the changeability of the weather here- clear and sunny one moment, overcast the next, and topped off with an amazing 3AM rain deluge that rattled the buildings and windows with a romantic intensity not to be missed!
Onward to 2012-2013 along Wine Road…!
Here’s looking at you kids.
