Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
I would like to thank everyone that came in last week to try our Featured Wines from ?????? ???? ?????????. The special event with their representative on Thursday was great success and the wines were a big hit, so much of a hit that I sold out of all but 3 bottles of their great wines. If you weren’t able to get the bottle you wanted last week, they are back in stock this week so come on by to get your favorites.
This week featured Wines are a mix of varietals from wines regions around the world. Hope to see you here.
