Did you download the file for TT WebOMints GD --- that's the ttf that 
you can install on your system like any other. Then load with what's in 
the vine.tex file:

\newfontfamily\webomints{WebOMints GD}

I think it should work then.

Sorry about that! I ignored those warnings by just pressing <enter> and 
letting the processor continue. It completes the task and sets the card 
just fine. But, just to be sure, I've corrected the input to avoid the 
warnings (by not using fancyhdr, as suggested, among other things). 
There's some warning from varwidth now that I can't figure otu Try this:

%!TEX encoding =  UTF-8 Unicode
%!TEX TS-program =  xelatex
\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text, Numbers={Proportional,OldStyle}]{Minion Pro}

\newfontfamily\webomints{WebOMints GD}

\newcommand{\wb}[1]{\webomints\fontsize{12bp}{12bp}\selectfont #1}
