Unleash The Power Of Lemons At Albertsons


This holiday season, you'll be able to see new Limoneira Santa Displays in Albertson's stores.  Artwork for the new displaysthat will be in the Albertson's stores was based on Limoneira's historic Santa label.  The Limoneira Lemon sales team has worked diligently on the UNLEASH THE POWER OF LEMONS campaign with Albertsons and their customers.  These new displays will feature Limoneira Meyer lemons in new stand-up zip-lock 1 lb. recyclable pouches.  Ho-Ho-Ho!


Joe Albertson opened his first  grocery store in  Boise, Idaho, in 1939 and newspaper advertising for the grand opening proclaimed it as "Idaho's largest and finest food store."  It promised customers benefits that have been standard ever since - convenient parking, top quality, and a money-back guarantee.


"You've got to give the customer the merchandise they want, at a price they can afford, complete with lots of tender, loving care."  Joe Albertson

Garagiste Artisan Wine Producers At Windfall Farms


The Garagiste Festival is the first and only festival dedicated to promoting artisan 'garagiste' winemakers.  There will be four days of events during the Garagiste Festival weekend of November 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th in Paso Robles.  The Garagiste Grand Tasting event, seminars, and after-party will again be held at beautiful Windfall Farms, while specialized events will take place at other Paso Robles venues.


The Garagiste Festival showcases high-quality, cutting-edge, small production wineries that produce fewer than 1,200 cases of wine a year.  Last year's sold-out festival presented 45 outstanding artisan winemakers to over 700 passionate wine consumers, members of the trade, and media, raising the profiles of many of the winemakers nationally for the first time.  The event also raised $10,000 for the Cal Poly Wine and Viticulture Program.


About The Garagiste Festival


The Garagiste Festival ( is the first and only wine festival dedicated to the undiscovered and under-recognized artisan 'garagiste' producers who are making some of the best, most exciting, handcrafted, small-lot production wines in the world.  The Garagiste Festival was named one of the Top Nine Incredible Epicurean Vacations by ABC News.  Founded by fellow garagistes Stewart McLennan and Douglas Minnick, the Garagiste Festival is committed to fostering the spirit of a free exchange of ideas and encouragement that has made Paso Robles one of the friendliest, most successful, and innovative wine-making communities in the world.  The festival is produced by Garagiste Events, a non-profit dedicated to furthering the education of future winemakers and those training for employment within the wine industry.  Proceeds from 2011's sold-out festival were donated to the Cal Poly Wine and Viticulture Program.
