MAYBE EVEN START VALENTINE'S DAY early by doing something special and
unexpected next weekend?!? What a great thought, it would be wonderful to
have this great element of surprise!!!!

I CALL THEM ' Brownie Points ', get some early by celebrating twice, once
this Saturday and Sunday, and then again next Saturday and Sunday! Why not?
THis could be revolutionary in the terms of love, beating the punch, doing
something fun and totally unexpected, and having the charge and the joy and
the surge of doing something that no one saw coming?!?

EVERYONE WINS, everyone is special, everyone feels really appreciated,
everyone celebrates and smiles broadly and feels good about themselves and
their relationship, a win-win situation that grows and blooms just like the
bouquet of roses or other flowers offered at this special time of the year.

I LIKE THIS. I HAVE GIVEN EVERYONE a good idea, or at least something to
think about to make Valentine's Day more their own, more uniquely theirs,
more reason to take ownership of this special time and special sentiment of
love for someone special and make it all the more meaningful as a result.

WE ARE WELL-STOCKED for you all and that is good and we have all the
categories from sparkling wines, sparkling apple ciders, sparkling beers
even, all the colors, fruit-grape-based, liqueurs and alcohols with added
touches and accents , from dry to very sweet, from really clear to dark and

availability. WE only have two cases now and are holding it back for those
of you that ask for it by name. But we feel guilty doing that so I am
letting you all know it is back again by popular demand : first-come,
first-serve. Cheers. Made from the Mourvedre grape variety also called
Muvrede and Monastrell in Spain, with a higher alcohol generally, and yet
this one has only 13.5% alcohol by volume : love that!

from  KANTINA ARBERI , $19.99, with 13.9% alcohol by volume, I tasted this
a couple of weeks ago with Aleks the importer and I fell in love with it
pretty much immediately. Tasty, balanced, multiple layers and textures, a
brightness, a toastiness, a grip and a grit and a roastiness, too. It has
it all, and is very versatile with many foods, from flavorful fish dishes,
to most white meat dishes, some red meat dishes, and many vegetarian and
vegan meals, too.


Friday, February ( 5-8PM ) : we have Felipo of Enovation Brands coming to
pour really fine Italian Pinot Grigio and some Prosecco, too. Some fun
wines including a dry, tasty flavorful southern Italian red that is covered
