What are some social events your company does?

We’ve focused on keeping the company connected during these times, and it’s been great to continue to connect with coworkers we wouldn’t otherwise see. Whether it’s virtual tastings, cooking classes, or our upcoming holiday party, I’m thankful to work for a company that cares so much about its employees!
