Avanguardia moves to Bent Metal’s space in downtown Grass Valley

The 2017-18 Visitor Guide newly published by The Union should have been edited more carefully. It shows Avanguardia’s tasting room at 209 Main St.

If the editors had been more careful, they would have changed the address to 163 Mill St. A new sign clearly shows that 163 Mill St. (not 209 Main) is the new home of Avanguardia’s tasting room.

Now the Visitor Guide is going to be out of date as it circulates for a full year, and visitors to town will be directed to the wrong location. That’s Journalism 101, to check with the owners when building your map. A lesson for all of us.

  1. Barry Pruett, a regular on Todd Juvinall’s blog, writes at 6 p.m: “Y’all need to get out more. I’ve been at the lake all day and headed to a movie and to the wine tasting place at Avanguardia Winery tasting room on Main Street. I’ll send you a picture tonight.”
    I wonder if Pruett knew the tasting room closed at 5 p.m. Let’s see that photo! ROFLOL.
