Attend Exclusive Events

Our Events are hosted at Wineries, Hotels, and other vendor locations throughout Napa and Sonoma Valleys. We offer members the opportunity to host an event at their property to showcase their offerings.

Meet New People

Our membership is a mix of wonderful individuals and businesses. Each business member is offered between 5 – 1 representatives to attend our monthly events, to represent their business in person and online.

Flourish Professionally

If you are looking to make connections and grow your professional network, BANG is a great way to find new connections. We offer a yearly Job Fair and Webinar series to help members with all of their hiring needs.

It is and always has been a great pleasure to work with Mallory McElligot since her days at Plumpjack managing our DTC outreach initiative with Chatterbox Wine Marketing.  When she started BANG, many of us in the DTC community had experience with networking groups that came and went and never really had a mission or could bring value other that networking and having fun get togethers.  Mallory changed all of that with a singular focus on encouraging likeminded professionals to share their knowledge, contacts and referrals for the greater good of all DTC channels in Napa Valley.  When Mallory decided to enhance BANG’s services converting to a subscription basis, I was an eager and early adopter.  During Covid it became even more clear what a great resource BANG has become to our industry.  Thank you, Mallory, for all your efforts in bringing our community together in spirit and with a purpose.

“Being a member of Bang has been such an amazing way to network and make incredible industry connections within Napa + Sonoma counties. I have made so many invaluable relationships through Bang which has helped drive quality business to our winery and has strengthened our brand presence. Most importantly, I feel fortunate to be part of such a special community of individuals who truly want everyone to succeed; it’s been the most amazing support system! Mallory’s dedicated and thoughtful approach she puts into every aspect of Bang has truly made this networking group the best one I’ve ever been a part of!”

I have been a member of Bang for 2 years and it has been a valuable resource my company Perry’s Tours. I was able to attend a Bang function at Odette and it was wonderful. It is nice to have colleagues in the wine & hospitality industry all together at one spot. Able to reach out at network and connect is so valuable. Food and Wine at these events are amazing. I have also Been able to attend a few online Bang meetings and they are so informative and also a great way to stay connected during these challenging times. Mallory and her team have also helped Perry’s Tours with its social media presence and content. I would highly recommend Bang of Napa Valley to all who are looking for a valuable resource for networking, connecting and keep up to date with what is happening in the wine industry and the  Napa and Sonoma wine country!

BANG is a valuable asset to Oak Avenue. Mallory’s orchestration of events and gathering of like-minded people within Napa and Sonoma Valley has allowed us to make countless connections and build key business relationships.

Angela Thompson, Oak Avenue Catering

Working with a very small team at my winery, where I am often alone, the larger family I have within BANG is so important to my development of a social and networking support system. I look forward to seeing friends and meeting new attendees at each meeting, and enjoying an interchange of ideas and encouragement. I had the opportunity to accompany other BANG wineries on an out-of-state selling trip that was quite successful.

Jean Miller, Ancien

Thank you, BANG, for the referrals! Being a member of BANG has allowed us to connect with a variety of different industry leaders. We look forward to networking with many more friends through the BANG network.
