Happy New Year, everyone!
Hopefully no one minded (or had time to notice) the radio silence during the past few weeks. We had what was easily our busiest holiday season, and are enjoying the steady, but much less frenzied and high pressure week between Christmas and NYE. If you have some time to see us and need to stock up on anything - Cava, Sherry, Rioja, Champagne, beer, Muscadet, pineau d'aunis, whatever - come on in, we'll be happy to see you!
I thought that I would take a (temporary) hiatus from the sales pitch (sort of), and instead use this email to wish you all the best for 2012. Here are just a few things we're looking forward to next year:
- Hosting our new Riojano friend Miguel Merino, likely in March. We will surely have a few events featuring Miguel and these delicious direct imports, so stay tuned. Also, please be sure to check out our interview with him in our February newsletter.
- Adding some new direct imports from Rioja and perhaps further afield. One in particular I'm very excited about; we've had the wines in the past and will soon be their exclusive US importers.
- Continuing to spread the Sherry gospel. Maybe a direct import here as well?
- Tasting the good stuff with you all. To that point, our first tasting of the year (Redwood City, San Francisco and Hollywood) will focus on some of the classics from Rioja and Ribera del Duero, and will be Saturday January 7th so mark your calendars! Just a heads up, this tasting may be a fancy one (in terms of wines, not price!) We might could pop open some fine vintages to get folks out the first week in January. You should check it out.

Thanks for all of your support in 2011, and best wishes for the New Year.
