Korbel California Champagne awards girls getaway trip

Five friends win trip to Korbel Winery

September 3, 2013

Korbel California Champagne, a brand of F. Korbel & Bros., Guerneville, Calif., announced the winners of its Korbel Mimosa Girls Getaway contest, which asked women to submit a toast about their friendships explaining why their groups of friends should be chosen to win the ultimate girls getaway to the Korbel Winery in Sonoma County, Calif.

Amanda Reade, Monterey, Calif., submitted a toast about a special group of women she has known since elementary school and remains close with today. She wrote that the friends all are in different stages of their lives, so the trip was a chance to take a break and relax.

“I am overjoyed to have been selected for this experience, and to share it with the women who mean the most to me in this world just takes it over the top,” Reade said in a statement. “Geographically life has distanced us, but leave it to Korbel, the California Champagne we use to toast every little milestone, to bring us together so we can continue making memories that will last a lifetime.”

Reade was joined by four of her girlfriends: Jennifer Kuhle, Andrea Greenway Smith, Michaelanne Lauderdale, and Samantha 'Dani' Garrett. The trip included airfare and accommodations for four days and VIP treatment including vineyard and winery tours, working the crush with the wine makers,  gourmet meals prepared by the winery chefs, as well as poolside spa treatments at the Korbel Winery. 

“We think there's no one better to share the ultimate trip to wine country with than your closest girlfriends," said Gary Heck, owner and president of Korbel Champagne Cellars, in a statement. “Korbel is raising a glass to the special relationships women share with one another.”
