A to Z rings in birthday with giving
A to Z Wineworks celebrated its 15th anniversary last month with a three days of partying and giving, according to a press release from the Newberg-area winery with a Rex Hill tasting room at 30835 N. Highway 99W. With a conclusory "industry bash supporting literacy" Aug. 12 that drew 500 attendees from the wine and hospitality trades, the winery managed to accrue 400 children's books that will be donated the McMinnville-based Yamhill Enrichment Society. In addition, the winery took the opportunity to launch a new "Bubbles" rosé — a portion of the proceeds from which will go to the state's Start Making a Reader Today (SMART) program — as well as other fundraising efforts.
