Well..…where to begin? Happy New Year to all of our customers and friends…and many of you are both! It has been an utter joy sharing our passion with you this past year, and we are looking forward to doing it again in 2011. So a big “Thank You” to all of you! I have said it many times before…without you, there is no Suburban.
As you might imagine, the last six weeks of the year get a bit hectic for us. So my goal is always to clean off my desk on my first day back in the New Year. A daunting task, as paper seems to accumulate and take on a life of its own. But I am happy to say I have tamed that beast (for now) and am ready to concentrate on bringing all of you the best that the wine world has to offer.
Our initial tasting line-up has been posted to the website (you can see it here). With our completed renovation we are looking forward to offering up large scale tastings again on a regular basis. The reconfiguration of the store allows us to host larger tastings, and still keep the store shop-able for those who like to take their time and browse through our ever-growing selections. And remember…if there is no event listed, fear not, we have wines open every Saturday for your tasting enjoyment.
We are also getting ready to unveil some terrific wine dinners, exclusive events and…you guessed it…more tastings!!! So stay tuned on that front as well.
On the wine front, I have to apologize for our inability to keep our “Wine of the Year” in stock. It proved to be such a runaway hit, we simply did not order enough. We have ordered more, direct from the winery in Tuscany, and it will be here in the next few weeks.
Enough rambling…..you can’t see this, but we here at Suburban are raising a glass, wishing you and yours all the best in 2011! – Lance Cerutti
