Being closed since mid-December has been wierd. On one hand, I have LOVED the freedom: riding my horse, visiting my family in Ohio, a short vacation, sleeping in. On the other hand, I MISS MY WINOS!
Yep, you read that correctly. I miss JT, Mary, Micki, Christine, Richard, Michelle, Jeff...and countless others who are not only my wonderful customers, but who have become friends.
But with that said I've been catching up on QuickBooks (like torture to me), perusing gift catalogues for the retail area, and cleaning the winery. I'm in the process of moving EVERYTHING out of the tasting room to deep clean and seal the floors to make them shiny again. We've also bought a fireplace--not the fancy schmancy built in we were hoping for--but a nice corner fireplace that will make the winery more cozy and homey. Course, for those of you who sit your bums on the couch all day and sip slowly on wine, there is another new feature coming in February: ejection seats to throw you off of our leather furniture.
Just kidding...Or maybe not...hmmmm. Maybe I'll turn the ejection seat off if you're drinking your fair share of wine and/or buy a case.
Our GRAND RE-OPENING is February 3. As always, our favorite musician and singer, Bryce Butler, will play for us. We'll have some eats, not sure what yet, and discounted glasses of wine.
If you miss me half as much as I miss you, visit me on Facebook. I post there sometimes when I'm bored or when QuickBooks makes me miserable, which is often.
