20% Still Wine SALE (/23-24/09 ) On 12 More Bottles/ Local Businesses
UNITE TODAY / fall official today


WOW! THERE'S A WHOLE LOT GOING ON today here at Cleveland Park Wines
& Spirits as well as in Cleveland Park our neighborhood. many of the local
Cleveland Park businesses just got  together across the street at the Four
Fields restaurant/pub and are working hard as a unified unit to do what we
can to support/bolster and improve our already excellent neighborhood of
homes and shops/restaurants/ physical fitness center, etcetera. It was
really well-attended and you could feel the energy, excitement and
enthusiasm for working as a team to do what we can to further support our
community and make it flourish and go to the next step of it's potential.
This is a very positive and encouraging time. I took pictures ( when don't
I take them?!? This time, however I asked first ) and will include them on
my blog both at our " new " and exciting web page at :
www.clevelandparkwine.com as well as on my blog spot :

work on daily and to add pictures and write a blog right there as the
winemakers/owners and other interesting people come through our front door
on a daily basis. If they have a SPECIAL OF THE DAY then I will include it
on the web page. Be sure and try and check it out at least weekly so that
you can take full advantage of both weekly as well as daily specials.

I WILL POST FROM NOW ON " Daily Specials " ON THE BLOG on our web
page at : www.clevelandparkwine.com. As I have just said some will be good
for the duration of the product mentioned : once I run out then the price
reverts back to the old one. Sometimes this means that I will have only 6
cases or four cases and five bottles or more of course. I don't mind though
because it means that you will all benefit while supplies last. You can see
these listed in the " Specials " section of our web page.

THE AUSSIE & KIWI INVASION of winemakers and owners was one big ,
grand success and it sure was great to host five of them : three from
Australia and two from New Zealand. Things just fell into place as they
happened. Much of it was a sure thing but the two winemakers/owners from
New Zealand was a " maybe " that thankfully materialized very well here
Saturday night and basically finished just before we closed the doors at
9:30PM. We had :

1) Michael Kerrigan, winemaker of HAY SHED HILL ( Margaret River ,
western Australia. Michael poured the Sauvignon Blanc,  2008 Chardonnay (
$21.99 ),  2007 Shiraz ( $19.99 ) and Cabernet Sauvignon. He also makes the
four VINACEOUS ( three reds :  2006-2007 "  Red Right Hand ",  2006-2007 "
Snake-Charmer and the  2007 " Racounter " , the white " Divine Light "
Verdelho just arrived ) wines. All sell for $16.49: they used to be more.
