I have to start this month’s message with a declaration, “You are right”.
A number of members contacted me this past month indicating your desire to see something, “anything” one wrote, other than Chardonnay. “Please find a Pinot Gris” another wrote.
Agreed. In the last three months we have shipped three Chardonnays in a row, which is a record for the VWC. As Chardonnay is the most prolific grape in the world, it is of little surprise that Virginia wineries make a wide array of styles of this wine. Do not fear; we are not becoming the Chardonnay of the Moth Club. Both Wine Club President Stewart Reynolds and I are committed to provide members with a wide variety of varietals grown in the Commonwealth – Thank you for letting us know – trust me your message was received loud and clear.
On a brighter note, we are headed into the holidays and time with family and friends. Xen and the entire VA Wine Club staff are eager to put together a package of our hand selected Virginia wines for you and yours to enjoy.
Whether you are headed over the river and through the woods or keeping the home fires burning this holiday – bring Virginia wine with you – OR ship it ahead to be ready for your arrival!
This is also the season of giving. Virginia wine makes a fantastic client gift. A three month membership to the Virginia Wine Club will remind clients throughout the first quarter of your generosity.
If you are looking for a custom case or trio pack – we are here for you. This year we are able to ship to even more states! Looking for an exclusive gift ask about our Cellar Reserve memberships.
Call us to help solve your business gift challenges!
Thank you for your membership, thank you for letting me know about your concerns, as always, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your Virginia Wine Journey.
