From Instagram growth to discovery tasting sessions, and from how to make money blogging to the science behind eco-friendly beef, we covered a diverse range of topics. Many of us enjoyed the pre- and post-conference excursions including wine tasting in El Dorado County, a ranch visit with Cobram Estate and the Olive Oil Commission of California, and a climate-smart, smoked prime rib dinner with Mootral at UC Davis.
And how about the food from our numerous Taste of Sacramento vendors, sponsors and even those that dared the speed-dating-like drama of the live blogging session! We enjoyed gourmet chocolates, a vegan poke, Cubano sliders, turmeric chicken salad, micheladas, and of course numerous wines. It was a veritable feast for the senses.
