Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
I want to alert everyone about a temporary change in our business hours here at the Old Town Wine Cellar which will be in effect this week as well as the following week: Tuesday May 16th – Friday May 20th and Tuesday May 23rd – Friday May 27th. During these two weeks only, the Wine Cellar will be open from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM, instead of our regular 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM schedule. The Wine Cellar will still keep our normal Saturday open hours of 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM both weeks. Effective Tuesday, May 30th we’ll get back to our normal weekday business hours. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience to our valued customers, but the most important thing is our daily wine tastings will continue uninterrupted!
