Our Cup Runneth Over – Here’s to new clients, great work and a growing team!


Over the past few months there has been an ever-growing buzz in our offices. There are more footsteps in the hall, more lunches being eaten, more meetings being hosted, more comings and goings in the lobby, more documents being printed, new voices, different jokes and louder laughs–Not to mention the continual cracks of Red Bulls being opened and coffee being made, poured, enjoyed and made again. This rumble of activity signals the exciting times that Merlot is experiencing and the growth we are pleased to be relishing. This growth includes the renewal of our contract with the Placer County Agriculture Department to brand and promote PlacerGROWN, and the signing of a new contract with the South Feather Water & Power Agency (SFWPA), on behalf of the Grow Oroville Coalition.

Since March of last year, our team has had the pleasure of getting to know and working with the great people of PlacerGROWN. Through marketing, public relations and social media efforts, we have built awareness of the local agricultural brand and promoted regional events, wineries, and farmers’ markets right here in our own backyard. We are thrilled to be able to continue our work with them for another two years.

Additionally, we are excited to begin working with the SFWPA on behalf of the Grow Oroville Coalition. The Grow Oroville Coalition is an association of the Oroville Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Oroville, Butte County, Oroville Economic Development Corp. and SFWPA. Our work will include developing and implementing a business-recruitment branding and marketing program for the Oroville region, as well as promoting the Oroville region’s opportunities for economic growth. On a personal note, I am delighted to be getting back to my roots as I was raised in the beautiful northern California town of Oroville.
