Greetings from the Wine Cellar:
In case you’ve forgotten, next Monday (February 14th) is Valentine’s Day! Don’t forget a card, of course, but you really need more. There’s nothing wrong with flowers or candy, but at the Old Town Wine Cellar we tend to think wine is a better way to go (or in addition to!). We have lots of great choices that will make your valentine see that you really care – sparkling wines, dessert wines, great Napa Valley reds, or whatever else you think he or she might find appealing. There’s a lot to choose from here in the Cellar, and you have all week to make your way downtown to make a selection. And of course you can enjoy a wine flight or a glass while you do – we hope to see you soon!
