We’ll Reopen Next Friday Jan. 20th
Winter 2017 Hours: Fridays from 2pm – 7pm
Happy New Year, Wine Friends!
What a crazy Winter season. Having lived in Oregon for 34 years and survived the last 10 holiday seasons in retail, this has certainly been one of the more challenging winters in terms of getting around our city. As most of you know, our house and winery is on the other side of the West Hills, which makes commuting to Alberta Street a little dicey when conditions are like these.
So, despite my best intentions of reopening the shop today, I am going to assume most of you also don’t need an excuse to leave your cozy home or office for a wine diversion. Thus, I am bumping our reopening to next Friday, January 20th.
I will, however, be at the Alberta location from 12-1pm today if anyone is desperate to restock or pickup things you didn’t collect last year. After that I’ll be off to do restaurant deliveries and then get back over those hills before they ice up again tonight.
But here’s a calendar of things to look forward to in the coming weeks:
Friday, Jan. 20th – Regular Hours resume: Fridays 2pm – 7pm.
Friday, Jan. 27th – New Viola Club Releases – Pickup Party! The Winter releases include a brand new white creation and one of our most popular reds that everyone needs to try at least once before it is sold out. More details to come.
Saturday, Jan 28th – New Viola Club Westside Pickup @ Winery 3p-6p
Wednesday, Feb. 22nd – Winemakers Dinner featuring Viola wines at Quaintrelle on N. Mississippi. We’re excited to be part of this newer restaurants winemaker’s dinner series. Contact the restaurant directly to reserve one of the 14 seats and check out a new addition to Portland’s vibrant dining scene with me pouring some of your favorite local wines! Tickets aren’t onsale online yet but you can see what they are up to this month by going here: http://www.quaintrelle.co/
Enjoy the snow while it lasts! It could be 10 days or 10 years before this happens again.
