Shaina left last night for Italy, and she is gone for a week. I am very jealous. Wine, pasta, and cheese for a week? Sign me up! Anyway, we will miss her around here. Matt and I don't have any international trips planned this year. We are headed down to Florida over President's Day Weekend and then we have a trip planned for Seattle and Oregon in August (to be tied in with my cousin's wedding)...but, that's it! I'm looking forward to heading to the Seattle and Oregon. My parents lived in Seattle before I was born for a few years and liked it a lot, Matt has been to Seattle for work and really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to checking it out. We will be spending the whole week out there as a family of 6 (Mom, Dad, Zack, Steph, Matt, and me), at least that is the plan as of now. Hopefully we will nail down all the details when we are in Florida!
We ran a pretty good sale last weekend - 20% off the store (inclusive of wine tour tickets!). We are almost sold out for the tour on 3/9, so make sure that you grab tickets soon if they are of interest. It seems so far away, doesn't it? March 9th? I just know that it will be here in the blink of an eye though. You will notice that there are no semi-private tours scheduled for February; there is a reason for that. We are busy!!! There are a few days where neither Shaina nor myself are here, and then we have a bunch of events. The two more highlighted ones are the Bucks County Locavore event and The College of Physicians Social Club event!
The College of Physicians event should be a nice one. They are going to be pairing our 2015 Chardonnay, 2015 Cabernet Franc, and 2013 Meritage with cheeses to server to about 100 special guests. It should be great! They are having someone from DiBruno pair the cheeses for them, so I am sure that everything will be just perfect.
The Bucks County Locavore event is something that we have taken part in for the last few years. It is at Superior Woodcraft in Doylestown and it always has some of the best artisinal producers in the area! Here is the link to find out more: https://www.facebook.com/events/148884695763995/. The event is usually free to attend, but this year they are hoping to benefit the local foodbank. So, the cost of admission is either a food donation, or a monetary donation. Come visit - it is always a great event AND you can give to those in need. We hope to see you there (on February 22).
I hope that you have some great plans for the weekend. It seems like it is going to be a quiet one for us. The electrician is coming over tomorrow to finish the lighting project in our bedroom...I will be so happy when that is all done! Until next time....
