Immigrant Fundraiser this Friday
More Places to Taste Viola Wines
Wine Club – get your Winter wines now!
Welcome to March! It has come in like a Lion, that’s for sure. But hopefully that means things are going to calm down as we head into Spring. To that effect, we have released our first 2 wines of 2016 and they are our two popular pink creations – the Ramato of Pinot Grigio and the Rosato of Sangiovese. Both a bit lighter in color this year and even brighter in refreshing acidity, they are flying off the shelves. Come and taste them this Friday and take some home to stash away for the warmer days ahead.
IMMIGRANT T-SHIRT PICKUP PARTY
Friday March 10th, 4pm – 7pm
We pre-sold almost 50 of these great Immigrant t-shirts showing off the label that’s on our Primitivo bottling. We’ll be pouring the Primitivo for the last time this Friday, along with those new 2016 pink wines, and we’ll be handing out the T-shirts to everyone who pre-ordered them if you join us at the tasting. T-shirt buyers get a complimentary flight of the wines. All others can taste for the $10 fee but if you buy 2 bottles of Viola creations, we’ll waive it for you too.
Finally – we had put out the challenge that if we sell out of the Primitivo before March 31, I would double our $1 donation to IRCO. Well, there are just 4 cases left so please come on by and help us make our goal this Friday. That would bring our total funds raised to $1300 between the Immigrant t-shirt sales and the Primitivo bottle sales. Hopefully that can make a difference with the services that IRCO and the ACLU provide!
We’ll have extra special snacks this Friday from 4-7pm so please stop by the tasting room to taste, grab your t-shirt (if you pre-ordered) and stock up on some vino.

VIOLA CLUB – Pickup your Winter Releases
If you haven’t already gotten your 2 Winter selections – the Immigrant Primitivo and the Sauvignon aged in Acacia, then you best get yourself down to the tasting room this week to make sure you keep your wine club membership current. We are almost out of both wines and when they are sold out, if you haven’t contacted us to arrange holding them longer, we’ll have to say goodbye to you as a club member. Please help us sell out of the Primitivo this month by collecting your allocated bottles and continuing your support of Viola Wine Cellars! If you need Westside pickup, shipment or other arrangements, just shoot me an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing you soon!
