Bâtonnage Forum, a platform to educate wine professionals and others about the unique challenges and opportunities facing women in wine, will hold its third annual conference on June 16, 2020 at an all-new venue, Sonoma Broadway Farms in Sonoma, California.

The 2020 edition marks a new chapter for Bâtonnage, produced for the first time by wine PR, marketing and strategic planning firm O’Donnell Lane, who carry on the work of founders Stevie Stacionis and Sarah Bray.

The new location at Sonoma Broadway Farms, generously donated for our use by owner Preston Raisin, is another milestone for the event, bringing the day-long conference to Sonoma for the first time following two years in Napa Valley.

Built in 1946, the picturesque, six-acre property is a fully organic and sustainable farm, growing over 30 types of fruits and vegetables, and raising bees along with ducks, chickens, and goats. The farm’s energy needs are met completely by solar panels installed on the property.

The nurturing approach and cohesive environment at Sonoma Broadway Farms create an ideal venue partner for Bâtonnage 2020—a space where attendees are invited to step away from the routine for a day of discussion focused on education and building awareness about the issues that women, and other individuals, face in the wine industry, as well as inspiring the community to make change.

Save the date and join the Bâtonnage community on June 16 in Sonoma. Tickets will go on sale online at batonnageforum.com in March.

Sponsorship opportunities are available; if you would like to sponsor the 2020 Bâtonnage Forum, please contact Rebecca Johnson or Katie Canfield at info@odonnell-lane.com or 530-720-1138.
