Not the kind of publicity wine country wants.
A bitter dispute between a Napa Valley vintner and an investor apparently ended in a murder-suicide at midday Monday.

Who thought it would be a good idea for them to get face to face with the attorneys only on the phone? Not a great idea.

Marketing teams: take note. Especially restaurants and wineries. I'm amazed how many websites out there in the hospitality world still aren't #mobile friendly. #google  #marketing
Google is set to change its search algorithm this week and it could pose some new challenges for wine and spirit brands, as well as retailers, that do not have mobile-friendly websites.

Story
Tagline
Wine media maven, travel addict, foodie, author of The Exes in My iPod and blogger for The Journey of Jordan Winery
Introduction
Lisa Mattson possesses 16 years experience in writing, event planning, public relations, marketing and digital media strategy within the wine industry. She is considered a thought leader in video storytelling, social media and digital brand strategy for luxury wines, and currently serves as communications director at Jordan Vineyard & Winery. Jordan Winery's blog, The Journey of Jordan, has been named Best Winery Blog (2012, 2013) and Best Video/Photo Blog (2013) by the Wine Blog Awards.
 
A passion for telling stories and a long streak of bad luck with men inspired her to write a novel based on personal experiences entitled, The Exes in My iPod: A Playlist of the Men Who Rocked Me to Wine Country, which releases in summer 2013. Mattson's first journalism job was penning obituaries for a Kansas newspaper in 1994; no wonder she drinks for a living.

ABOUT MY BOOK

Playlists. We make them for workouts, parties, break-ups or simply organizing our favorite grunge songs into a digital, heart-shaped box. When Harley got her first iPod, she created the kind of playlist every girl wants to keep on solitary lockdown. She called it The Exes—a collection of long-lost songs that instantly steamrolled her down a memory lane of men wider than a six-lane freeway. Skeletons that needed to stay in her closet—or so she thought.

Humbling yet reassuring, The Exes in My iPod: A Playlist of the Men Who Rocked Me to Wine Country is a no-holds-barred account of one woman’s quest to win the hearts of a motley crew of men during her twenties—that golden decade of poor judgment where college, career, alcohol and romance run a crash course. With a musical time capsule of lucky 13 songs, Harley takes you on a rockin’ journey through laugh-out-loud heartaches and headaches, as this redneck waitress from a long line of alcoholics searches for true love and her calling in life—only to find both in California wine country. Grab some earbuds, pour a glass of wine and kick back with an amusing e-book that will inspire you to create your own Exes playlist and discover the hidden beauty of all that baggage.

Share your songs and stories on The Exes Facebook Page.
