About Landon McPherson“Having grown up in Wine Country and hospitality, the launch of Harvest Card seemed to be natural. So, I created a membership program that would allow those who are not “industry” to experience Wine Country as an insider. I want all Harvest Card members to feel that they are right there with me, each and every time they have a Wine Country experience. I am so fortunate to live in such an incredible region and know that the luxury we experience daily is nothing to be taken for granted. Harvest Card was created to benefit both locals as well as our friends who visit a few times each year, to help elevate your experience.”
