Here it is already the second month of the year. Time just flies by here. I had all of these plans to get certain things accomplished and only some of them were. Heavy sigh. I do a lot of the little detail work (often times with Ellen’s help) that no one notices unless it’s not done. I think every mom can relate to that!! So I did get my “detail must get done stuff” done. Then there’s Marshall. He decided that we need to be in more stores so in one long day spent driving around for roughly 10 hours, he picked up 8 of them!!! 8 more Market Baskets!! So in addition to being sold at the Market Baskets in Tilton, Concord, Lee, Epping and Hooksett, we are now in Bedford, Londonderry, Nashua, Salem, Plaistow, Stratham, and Seabrook. We’ll be in the Manchester Market Basket next week. Boom. He said it, he did it! And in addition to that, he decided we should be at the Hannaford’s in Meredith. Boom. Done. We’ll be delivering to them this Monday, February 10th. Did I mention that for each new store he built a rack? This man doesn’t sleep much. None of these stores carries all of our choices of wine. Market Basket carries the most with Blueberry, Green Apple, Malbec, Jack the Ripper, Raspberry Merlot, Girl’s Night Out, and Seyval Twist. Hannafords carries a bit fewer choices.
Thanks for reading this. We were both just so excited about this that we had to share it with our customers. We hope this helps more people enjoy our wine and hopefully make it easier for our current customers to purchase our wine closer to home. Til next time.
Every now and then we have a customer try to come in the wrong door. Now to us it seems obvious, but that’s because we live here. On your first visit you’ll see 6 doors!! Yes 6. And that’s not even all of them. 3 of those doors go into the winery and our bigger dining room. Most people don’t really end up at one of those. Going right to left, after the winery doors, you’ll see the actual main entrance. It’s this big wooden door that Marshall made (what doesn’t the man do), says welcome above the door, and has a Marine statue in front of it. Most people go right on in this one. It also has our hours hanging on the door in addition to any current holiday decorations. Continuing the right to left idea, you’ll get to the door that we use as OUR entrance most of the time. It’s also the entrance to our commercial kitchen and if you go in this one, you may have to serve yourself. So that one is a no no. The farthest door to the left that you can see actually goes into the private side of our home/business. It also leaves you accessible to our family dog who only loves her family. She has issues and that will be another blog. Well that’ll do it for the doors. So when in doubt, look for the welcome sign!! :)
I decided it was time for us to have a blog. This will definitely not be a daily blog. Some posts will be about a particular wine, or what we’re currently working on, or about some of the things we do here. They’ll be written by me, Sunny, but I may get some ideas from Marshall, Karen, or Ellen. Who knows?!
For this first one, I wanted to write about our brunch that we serve every Sunday, 8:30-1:30. We’ve been doing this brunch for roughly 8 years now and the only thing we’ve changed is to add alternatives. We’ve been told our brunch is a lot of food. You begin with 5 different types of sliced fresh fruit served with our special, yummy, mystery dip. Our cinnamon and sugar fried dough is irresistible and is always gobbled up. We do like to serve locally made maple syrup with our French Toast and maple bacon course. The syrup is so local it’s from just down the street! The fourth course is the largest serving. We’ll serve you scrambled eggs with cheese, delicious homemade hash browns, and Marshall’s special recipe of sausage gravy over sweet bread rolls. The sausage, by the way, is from just down the street as well. Marshall learned this recipe from his father who was a cook on a Navy ship. If you’ve made some New Year’s resolutions and want to eat healthier or just less food, we do have some alternatives. For instance, you can order just French Toast and Bacon (our bacon is really, really, good), or just scrambled eggs. We want everyone to be happy. Speaking of happy, we also serve Mimosa’s! In the fall we like to mix it up with apple cider and champagne. During the holidays we’ll serve the champagne with cranberry juice. Of course, orange juice and champagne is always available.
One more thing. We do require reservations because we only serve this once a week. We’d love to see you here! Call us at 603.267.8251
