A Day at the Winery with Global Luxury

A huge thank you to the agents that showcased our brand and knowledge so well, Entercom Media for giving us the opportunity and 2 VIP tickets to give away, and the Winery for hosting the event and providing us with a dinner, one-night stay, and winery tour to give away at the event!
