Click here to check out the action from last year’s Newsom Grape Day.

NOTICE!!! The Honorable State Repersenitive Charles Perry has agreed to be theLuncheon guest!!!!

The Newsom’s next-door neighbor to the north, 2-B Ranch is going to cater the Chuck Wagon BBQ so bring a big appetite.

Also, DON’T FORGET bring your favorite bottle of wine. This will be tasted for quality control (of course) and also gets you special seating in the VIP section (Ha! Ha! A little friendly Newsom humor).

There are a few camping spaces for those that want to bring their campers. If you have a tent, the Newsoms have plenty of wide open spaces in their neck-of-the-woods.

IMPORTANT: There is no charge, so the price is right. However, they would like to collect a lunch donation for the scholarship fund.

Please RSVP for the meal. The contact information is: www.newsomvineyards.com or call 1-806-456-6877 and asked to speak with Janice, Nolan, or Neal Newsom.

The Newsoms are located 1.5 miles East of hwy 214 on 2196, 6 miles North of Plains (look for the big white barn). The meeting will start about 9:00 AM. Check Google Maps here.

Oh yes, don’t forget to bring lawn chairs for the star party!
