We at ŌMvino are always looking for ways to give back to the industry that has empowered us in so many ways. That being said, it excites us to share with you our projects and the projects of our clients that have devised to aid, support, and empower the F&B service.
This Monday, May 18th, please attend an online seminar hosted by Amir Mortazavi, founder of Canopy. A panel discussion, The Future of Dining in America with House of Waris and Hearth, will take place regarding America's 'new norm' for our F&B culture. Please follow this link to register for the seminar. Want to expand your mind? Canopy.space also features a local winery, or bar every Friday. Such a brilliant platform that takes its, viewers, on a cerebral adventure.
Bevmap.com, a charity project by the ŌMvino team helps direct traffic nationally to any establishment that is offering food or beverage To-go, curbside, or delivery. All one has to do is sign up and their services instantly become visible via an online map. Please share the website with your chef/ restaurant owner friends and your favorite neighborhood fixtures. We want everyone to be successful?
Kosta Brown, an ŌMvino favorite, will be donating wine amongst many other well-respected wineries and winemakers, to the ‘86 Lost Wages’ wine auction event. Did we mention that we LOVE companies that support restaurant staff?!?! ‘86 Lost Wages’ is a project by Wine Country for Restaurants, a weekly online wine auction benefiting the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund. Please find their auction calendar here.
Another ŌMvino favorite is The United Sommeliers Foundation. We feel particularly fond of this foundation bein that all ŌMvino’s talent comes from the wine industry and are/ were very established Sommeliers. USF was “Created during the global COVID-19 crisis, The United Sommeliers Foundation has established a fund to provide financial assistance to professional sommeliers finding themselves in vulnerable and uncertain positions.”
The ŌMvino team will be guests of New Zealand’s Pyramid Valley Vineyards where they will be engaged in deep and fun dialogue with Master Sommelier, Steve Smith, regarding the biodynamic wines from PVV. This will take place Friday, May 22nd. Please refer to the PVV’s IG bio for the event link and further details.
