The Vision and Development of Gervasi Vineyard

Join us for the AultCare QuickConnect Networking Luncheon on February 20 with Scott Swaldo, General Manager, Gervasi Vineyard

Exhibiting at a tradeshow is a great opportunity to connect with prospective clients. How you prepare, engage, and follow up determines how successful you are.  Diane will explain how to capture and nurture leads during a tradeshow.

Scott will tell the story behind the vision and development of Gervasi Vineyard:

• How it got started
• How to quickly grow the concept and vision by listening to your customers
• How to differentiate yourself from the competition
• Lessons learned
• Keys to Success
• The latest additions, The Casa and The Distillery


AultCare QuickConnect attendees can obtain business leads through enjoyable networking activities, hear a compelling speaker, meet new business contacts and enjoy a delicious meal. Plus, when you bring a door prize valued at $15 or more, you’ll receive 30 seconds at the microphone to promote your business.
