A recent blog post by DPF’s John Trinidad and Louise Mercier featured prominently in an article published on Forbes.com: “Winery Websites Must Comply with the Americans with Disability Act, but How?” The article focuses on lawsuits filed against New York wineries alleging that they violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and state and local accessibility laws by failing to make their websites accessible to visually impaired persons.
A year ago, we lost our colleague and great friend, Greg Walsh. Greg died of a heart attack at age 42. At DP&F, we have been celebrating Greg’s memory in many ways over this last year, and this week we honored Greg by holding a CPR training at our Napa office. We were fortunate to have City of Napa Firefighter/ Paramedics, led by Kevin Horn, come to us for a 30 minute training on Hands Only CPR. The training is easy and free, and Kevin will gladly come to your business to do the same or connect you with the appropriate training resource in your jurisdiction. You can reach Kevin at email@example.com. To inquire about trainings in Sonoma County follow this link.
Another tool for saving lives is being generously subsidized by Ron Rubin Winery. In collaboration with American Red Cross and ZOLL Medical Corporation, Ron Rubin Winery is covering the cost of AEDs (defibrillators) for qualifying wineries.
Hands Only CPR and AED trainings are straightforward and can prepare you for acting immediately in an emergency. Great resources are available to make the greatest possible difference.
Wine Institute, FedEx, and Compli, are hosting a series of wine compliance workshops across California, including a November 8 session in Napa co-hosted by Napa Valley Vintners. DPF’s John Trinidad will be speaking at the November 8 event discussing recent amendments to California’s Alcohol Beverage Control Act that permit certain social media advertisements of wine-related events held at retailer premises.
