40th Anniversary Sale!
Special Prices For Special Bottles For Your Upcoming Special Occasions
If you're going to launch a business in November ...
your anniversary is always going to be around Thanksgiving. A holiday of that magnitude may steal the thunder of any anniversary celebrations, unless of course, you're a wine merchant! As many of you know, our anniversary celebration comes with a big sale which coincides with the most festive season! It's our way of saying thank you to our customers for your support throughout the year.
Inspired by a long time customer's request, "for 6 nice bottles from your sale to serve to guests on Thanksgiving," I made some choices. The parameters were, "something nice, try to keep it under $50 per bottle (on average), and let's do one Champagne, two whites, two reds, and something sweet." My personal inclination is to question why the sweet wine is relegated to the end, but my personal inclinations are just that. This customer also shared the fact that they have eschewed the traditional Thanksgiving meal in favor of surf & turf. Okay, the wheels were turning; being someone's personal wine shopper can be a fun gig; living vicariously and all. Here's the what and why ... - Peter Zavialoff
