Benefit to endow the Dan Gulbronsen Scholarship Fund

On behalf of Jett Gulbronsen and the Guild of Sommeliers Education Foundation* we invite you to two very special fundraising events in Napa to endow a SommFoundation scholarship in the name of our late friend and colleague Dan Gulbronsen. Many of you are well aware of Dan’s passion to help aspiring young professionals achieve their goals in the wine industry. Please join Dan’s many friends in this celebration of his life and his passion.
