This is a VERY special weekend! Passover, which begins tomorrow night, is the only holiday we know of in any religion that celebrates that most precious gift of freedom. Today is also Good Friday followed closely by Easter Sunday. Of course, the two holidays are inexorably connected, but the Resurrection is the most important celebration in Christendom. So we wish everyone a blessed and happy holiday.
You would think less of us if we didn’t mention that both of these holidays are occasions that call for several bottles of wine from 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits to enhance your celebration brunch or dinner. You are going to need lots of wine this weekend! Coincidentally, our Spring Sale goes through the close of business on Easter Sunday… From fine wine and top notch spirits, to perhaps the best selection of craft beer in downtown Minneapolis, all may be found at our best prices of the year, right when YOU might need them most! We are pretty certain that the wines we will taste in the store this weekend are going to be geared to compliment your holiday dinner, so….come see us!! Please.
I am surprised to find that we still have a few spots open for the Ridge Vineyards wine tasting on May 1st. Space at this tasting is limited because the Aloft has another event scheduled, so we cannot open up to a larger room. I know that many of you wait to reserve your spot to the last minute, and I fear we may have to disappoint some who procrastinate. This is going to be a great evening of iconic California wines. Call the store at (612) 339-4040 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place for Wednesday, May 1 at 6:30 PM.
There is no reservation required for our Fourth Annual Best Indoor Rose’ Tasting which will take place Saturday, May 11th from 4PM to 7PM. This is everyone’s best opportunity to taste the full range of Rose’ wines from the 2018 vintage at one time, in one place….just in time for Summer enjoyment. You won't want to miss this annual event this year!
I want to take a moment to wish Adam Polzin the best of luck as he pursues his wanderlust. Adam has a bucket list that is far longer than his arm, and he is leaving us to pursue yet another adventure in Alaska. Those of you who have worked with Adam these past months have been taken by his passion and commitment to fine wine. He has been an asset to the store. We thank him for the time he has given us.
It looks like Spring has finally sprung. We look forward to a great late Spring and Summer with you. Thank you for your friendship and counsel. Thank you for your custom. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
