To all our friends and neighbors Thank You So Much for coming to our Grand Tasting on Jan 21st, 2012, we hope that everyone got to taste some great treats and try great wines. It wouldn’t have been possible without our neighboring business and for that the utmost gratitude from the both of us, all the participating vendors we wish you the best success and prosperity for years to come.

Next time we need to figure out a better system ;-)

  • What a lovely event! The wines were interesting; the food was fabulous, especially the cheese, chocolate, and Jamaican fish pitas. So great to see many neighborhood establishments represented. Thanks to the Winey Neighbor for hosting such a fun event on a snowy Saturday.

  • Looks like a wildly successful event. Congratulations!

  • Definitely had a great time there. Your place is beautiful and has an air of fun w/ all the clever little note cards for each wine. We ended up eating at Janelle’s afterwards, lol. Look out for a write up on your store and Janelle’s! =)
