ROMANCING THE VINES AT FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA WINERY


AH! THE DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES!

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? We don't think so. What could be better but meeting 13 NYT, USA and bestsellling romance authors, sipping wines and having chocolate desserts, while wandering the stunning grounds of Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville, California? Wine Country is so stunning, we celebrate Valentine's Day the entire month!

This is a new venture for me. Normally relegated to my pajamas in an isolated cave for writing love stories that will hopefully last for generations, I'm trying something completely different.

I'm happy to announce the first-ever Romancing The Vines book signing event I'm hosting this Saturday, February 20, 2016, from Noon - 5 PM. You can meet these wonderful authors:

Susan Stoker
Catherine Bybee
Marina Adair
Kathryn LeVeque
Carolyn Jewel
Tiffany Snow
Diana Orgain
Chris Keniston
Lori Ryan
Kate Douglas
Lisa Hughey
Pamela Gibson
Sharon Hamilton

For a complete writeup on each author and their books, their bios and story blurbs, click here.

In addition to the pouring of world-class wines, the Francis Ford Coppola Winery is host to movie sets from several of the famous director's movies, including the Godfather desk, the Tucker car used in the movie Tucker, and the infamous Bride costume and Red Knight costumes from Dracula.

I spend a significant amount of my income at this winery on a monthly basis and I have to say no one does it quite with the flair, panache and classiness as this winery. Everything about the event location is over the top.

So, if you're in Wine Country, Sonoma County, California, come on up to Geyserville, get an extra groove on your Valentine's Week, come celebrate the fruits of our love stories and the bounty of great wine vintages and views to forever. We promise not to disappoint.

We have created a Facebook page here, and you can obtain ticketing information here, or just stop by and enjoy! See you there.

Sounds like a wonderful time. I would love the history of the place more than the wine (I'm allergic). But to be surrounded by such beauty. I wish you wonderful weather and an amazing turn out!

I love the Napa Valley - wish I was there.

Melissa Kier - thank you. We should have good weather tomorrow. Today a bit rainy, but clears up late afternoon. The yellow mustard flowers are out, spring trees in full bloom, and the hills are green. Perfect venue! Thanks for the best wishes.

Sharon Hamilton said...

Thanks so much, Julie! I'll try to post what I can. My camera and computer don't always cooperate.
