Hi all! Sorry for not writing last week, but time got away from me and then I was off to Florida on Friday to watch my friend compete in CrossFit Regionals. Have you been to West Palm Beach? It is such a cute little town. It is too bad that Matt couldn't come with me, but someone had to watch the dogs! The weather was not very cooperative, but I suppose I can't complain too much about the weather since I think up here we got about 3 inches of rain over the 3 days I was gone!
It has been a very busy week with a lot of exciting things happening. On Tuesday, I was down in the city with a person who comes on board with us next week (her name is Cheri Morrison, and I will tell you all about her in next week's blog). We went to this really cool venue, Arena 2300, where there were many of the top caterers in Philly at a great networking event...while familiarizing ourselves with a very unique space. Hopefully you start seeing Karamoor (or our second brand!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More to come on this.) through some of these top catering companies in the near future. On Thursday, we hosted a private wine tasting event here for 20 people...complete with an amazing cheese board by Jericho's fabulous head chef, Verdine Hurt. Now, today, we have another private tasting! Next week is almost just as busy, if not more so! This is great news for Karamoor.
If you follow us on social media or get our newsletters (and if you don't, you should!), then you probably already know that we won some really great awards at the New York International Wine Competition. We were named PA Winery of the Year, our 2015 Cabernet Franc and 2015 Chardonnay took gold medals, and our brand new 2017 Rosé took a bronze. How exciting is that? We are so proud! We are also so appreciative of all the nice notes we have received from Karamoor fans echoing the remarks of us being their favorite winery in PA too! It means a lot.
I know that I keep promising everyone new dates for semi-private tours in July. I promise that they are coming. We plan to release them next Monday or Tuesday so that you can start planning your visit with us ASAP. Thank you so much for your patience on this - as always, the dates will come out via our newsletter first, Facebook and Instragram 2nd, and then they will also be listed on the blog next Friday.
I hope that you have plans to enjoy what is looking like another rainy weekend. Hopefully the sun pokes its head out a bit. Matt is headed up to his business partner's lakehouse with some of their pals - so I plan on getting some yardwork done, having dinner with my parents, and maybe spray painting the new window boxes that are being installed next Wednesday! Until next time...
