Our CEO, David Duncan behind the wheel of the Tower Tour van

The Tower Tour 2012 is off to a fantastic start as we've just finished our first small leg through the gorgeous Pacific Northwest.  There was rain and there was shine but somehow, everytime we stopped to get a shot of our Tower, the clouds always seemed to part just long enough for us to get a beautiful photo of the Tower against the backdrop of some of this region's most beloved landmarks, including California's Mt. Shasta, Portland's Old Town and Seattle's skyline.

And We're Off!

POSTED 6/5/2012 10:06:47 PM COMMENTS

This morning marked the kick-off of one of the most ambitious celebrations in the history of our industry with the launch of the Silver Oak Tower Tour 2012!  It was a crisp and beautiful morning in Geyserville, California - home to our Alexander Valley Cabernet- as just over 40 people gathered to wish our Tower a bon voyage with champagne, donuts, and of course California's most inconic Cabernet.

Next stop on the Tower's maiden voyage is the beautiful city of Portland and then we're headed to Seatle for a wine dinner at one of the Emerald City's favorite restaurants, El Gaucho

If you can't join us in the Pacific Northwest, never fear, because this party is just getting started!  Be sure to check here for the full list of our tour stops and Events. We'll see you on Tour!
