Here's a final reminder that the memorial service for Patty Bogle, the matriarch of Bogle Vineyards in Clarksburg, will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at UC Davis' Robert & Margrit Mondavi Center (One Shields Ave., Davis). Bogle passed away on Feb. 11 due to complications of leukemia.
The memorial service is expected to draw a who's-who from the Sacramento area's wine industry, which Bogle and her late-husband Chris helped put on the national map with the founding of their winery in 1979. Bogle Vineyards now ships more than 1.2 million cases of wine annually.
In lieu of flowers, the Bogle family invites contributions to be made to the Bogle Family Charitable Fund, to benefit local scholarships and schools, industry organizations and various other charities. Sacramento Region Community Foundation, 740 University Avenue #110, Sacramento, CA 95825-6751.
