SCHEDULE

“SHOW & TELL” - a winemaker only discussion for 90 minutes. Vintners share a bottle of importance and an oral history with friends. Starts promptly at 5:30pm.

MAGS FOR AG's signature reception kicks-off at 7:00pm with bubbles, caviar, passed snacks and a keynote speaker. At 8:00pm, we embark on a bacchanal feast, winemakers walking around pouring magnums and a silent-auction (filled with gifts from chefs and sponsors). Post silent auction, the “Trunk Sale” is a DTC opportunity.

”UNICORN PARTY” starts at 10:00pm - an invite-only celebration for friends in trade - guests must bring a 750ml for entry.

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

MAGS FOR AG is an opportunity to share your brand and yourself with media, community philanthropists, restaurateurs, wine collectors and technology leaders. Together we are kickstarting new family farms and hosting interactive discussions around programs that engage children 7-11 years old to start growing food. We will impact local communities, we will inspire youth and we will improve the odds against North America not having enough farmers in the future.
