Summerside Vineyards Wants to Make You A Butler

New Oklahoma Wine Club

The Butler family runs Summerside Vineyards and winery in Vinita, Oklahoma. They have announced that they are establishing a wine club where you are more than just a member; you’re adopted as an official Butler.

In medieval times the Butler was the keeper of the cellar keys of large households, and therefore, in charge of the wine. This was a position of considerable trust.

WINE growers in southern France, eager to alert holidaymakers to the crisis hitting the industry, will hand out 400,000 bottles later this month at toll booths and along rural roads in the region.

Wines produced in the Aude department - in and around Narbonne and Carcassonne - as well as those made in the Languedoc will be given out, especially to tourists vacationing in the Aude, the wine producers' union said.

The free bottles will bear special labels extolling the virtues of the wine, and producers also will distribute leaflets explaining the current overproduction crisis in France's wine industry.

Buckle up now, Ya'll.

Even when the ad is no longer broadcast on the radio, offering the content on their website for free allows Woods and Water Winery to get more bang for their buck. Pretty smart, eh?

Automatically Updated Oklahoma Wineries List For Any Web Page

Changes in the Oklahoma Wine News Winery Links List

If you visit the site regularly, rather than taking the feed through a newsfeed reader or via email, you may have noticed a change in the look of our Oklahoma Winery Links List. What I have done is set it up as a list of del.icio.us bookmarks, which the good folks at BigBold.com make easily displayable on anybody's website with just a single line of code!

This helps me out by allowing me to maintain only one list even though the content is displayed on other websites in other domains. Such as on my Oklahoma Canoeing and Kayaking website.

If you are interested in adding this free website content to your webpage, just grab the code from the blog website or drop me an email!
