The Recession Buster
I have illuminating news. Michelle Obama is a bargain hunter. I know this for a fact because she's wearing the same dress I have in the August 4 issue of People Magazine. And, I bought mine for 39.99 at the H&M store in downtown Chicago, her home town. So there you have it. Even wannabe president's wives are frugal fashionistas. What's all this nonsense have to do with wine? Absolutely nothing! Except that change is in the air and I for one, am optimistic about the future of this country and specifically, our economy.
However others, including our very own board members, don't agree. They're convinced that things are going to get worse before they get better in the good ole' US of A. Thankfully, we make a bunch of reasonably priced wines to satisfy people's thirst for great wine at a great price. Case in point, our 2007 Chenin Blanc, just got selected by Sunset Magazine as the white wine STEAL OF THE YEAR. I'll repeat, STEAL OF THE YEAR!!! This could not come out at a better time for us. And, we have plenty of inventory, which is not always the case when you get a great review. On top of that, it's featured as a GREAT BUY in this month's issue of OPRAH. And everyone knows that what Oprah says, goes!!!
So, if you're looking for a delicious wine that won't break the bank, check out our 2007 Chenin Blanc! Serve well chilled as an aperitif or with lighter foods, and you're all set for a good time. And, if you want to play a fun trick on your self proclaimed wine expert friends, disguise the label with a brown paper bag and see if they can guess the varietal and the price. Chances are they won't have a clue and you'll end up looking like a wine hero!
This is a blog about what it's really like to be in the wine industry...so sit back, take a sip and enjoy!
