Cohn Winery with the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival. … This intimate festival has a storied history in Sonoma wine country. No other music festival allows attendees to enjoy this level of musical talent in such an intimate venue, paired with Sonoma’s laid-back hospitality, great wine, and food. We essentially created this music festival for people who don’t like larger sized music festivals.”According to the festival website, the intimate event will be capped at 3,000 tickets, ensuring a “close-up, premium experience” for all festival attendees. Dedicated to hospitality, the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival pairs great music with the best of what Sonoma Valley has to offer, including artisanal foods from the area’s many acclaimed chefs plus as well as B.R. Cohn’s selection of premium wines and Northern California craft beer.B.R. Cohn Winery is a 70-acre multifaceted estate nestled between the Mayacamas range and Sonoma Mountain in the heart of Sonoma Valley. With a winemaking history dating to the 1860s, the vineyard is planted primarily to cabernet sauvignon and benefits from a unique confluence of geological and climatic factors that keep its soils warm, its vines frost-free, and its grapes ripe and flavor-packed. These advantages explain why B.R. Cohn is among Sonoma Valley’s few producers of world-class, single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Olive Hill Estate is named after B.R. Cohn’s grove of over 450 Picholine Olive Trees dating back to the mid-1800’s.Passes for the upscale event go on sale this Wednesday, March 28th at 10 a.m. PT. You can grab your tickets here when they become available. For more information about the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival website.[H/T Jambase]

For many people, membership in a particular group can become a defining part of their identity and self-image. On the flip side, the idea of membership can be divisive. As Heidi Klum used to say on Project Runway: you’re either in, or you’re out. Membership can also convey a sense of status and exclusivity, of being one of the chosen few to whom special privileges are granted and VIP access is given. Back in the 80’s, membership was so cool it even had its own apparel (you know you coveted that Members Only jacket).A Double-Edged SwordSince a lot of consumers don’t really know what a credit union is, words like “join” and “member” can create barriers to growth unless appropriate educational context is provided. We’ve seen credit unions downplay the idea of membership in an effort to get around this challenge and to make themselves seem more accessible. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
