Happy Thursday !
This week, we're thrilled to announce that after 13 months, we feel it's safe to re-open the tasting room and outside patio! Re-opening is in alignment with the NC Health & Human Services guidelines and is LIMITED based upon scaled back indoor and outdoor seating only. First come, first-served with no reservations. Please note, we will continue to require that you wear a mask when shopping the store and not actively sipping. Again, our top priority is to protect your well-being and continue to keep COVID-19 from community spread. Today, more than 40% of North Carolinians have had at least one vaccination and a third of us are fully vaccinated. Our entire team has been fully vaccinated, and we will continue to wear masks while serving you. Seating will be socially-distanced and we ask for your partnership in maintaining everyone's sippin' space. Welcome back friends and wine lovers.
Regarding group events, we will continue our Zoom-based events and have our next WINEMAKER online tasting event coming up, see below! Future spring and summer seasonal events will be highly limited in terms of available tickets, AND we will also offer online versions of the same seasonal events - stay tuned for more details!
- JOIN US VIA ZOOM, FRIDAY APRIL 23rd for a very special online tasting with TWO brilliant California winemakers, wife & husband team Bibiana Bibiana González Rave-Pisoni AND Jeff Pisoni! We'll be showcasing SIX wines - three labels from Cattleya Wines and three from Pisoni Vineyards. It's a study in how two married winemakers view their wines & their very unique winemaking relationship. Focus is both Sonoma and Santa Lucia California red, white and rosé. It's a fun twist and the wines represent a brilliant lineup. More details forthcoming, Email or call for pre-reservations via email. 6 special wines and a $49/kit !
This week, we will be showcasing SIX wines for our SPRING PORCH PLEASERS pack. It's a very happy set of wines perfect for the season and some lovely new releases to be enjoyed in the backyard or poolside. Read on and be well, be safe. We look forward to seeing you soon.
We will be adjusting back our operating hours next week, see the banner above, and for this week we will be open till 7pm.
We look forward to seeing you. And if you haven't taken advantage, COVID vaccine appointments are now abundant! We hope you're already enjoying the freedoms of a vaccinated lifestyle with continued caution until this is all behind us.
With much gratitude -
