One of our key takeaways this year is to be grateful for the little things. From giving us a follow on social media to purchasing something from our new line of wine-inspired products to booking a virtual tasting event with us - THANK YOU! Your support of our small, sister-owned business is appreciated more than you know. ❤️ We couldn't do what we do without you.
So, after a surprisingly busy year of virtual wine tasting events for networking groups, corporate parties and family and friend get togethers, we’ve managed to save a date to do our own Pairs Well With… event! And we’d love it if you could join us for our 5th Birthday Bash/End of Year Celebration on Tuesday, 12/15, from 6-7:30pm. (Yep. We’re finally getting around to celebrating Pairs Well With…’s 5th birthday which was in October.) Tickets for this virtual event will be $15/person. You can purchase tickets to this wine-infused event HERE. In a show of good faith, we ask that everyone attending purchases an individual ticket vs. one ticket for the entire household (this is how we get paid, people). That said, please feel free to share bundles and bottles as that’s one of the best things about wine–sharing it with others!
For Our Twin Cities Followers
We’ll be sampling three delicious wines that have a person of color or female connection (and a fun story behind each selection). You can buy one bottle or buy them all for maximum fun sipping and celebrating with us! We’re partnering with one of our favorite local bottle shops, The Vine Shop in downtown Hopkins–a small, female-owned business. As you likely already know, Sarah works at the affiliate wine bar next door, The Vine Room, so we especially love supporting their business. And get excited as wines will be available for purchase at The Vine Shop starting today so don’t wait to get in on this! If you want to purchase your wines in advance to take advantage of curbside pickup, please find direct links to each wine selection below. We’ve also included the main link to The Vine Shop’s online store if you’ll be buying multiple wines (highly recommended):
- Bodkin Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
- Leah Jorgensen Blanc de Cab Franc
- Desparada “Sackcloth & Ashes”
- The Vine Shop store link (if buying multiple wines)
For Our Out Of Town Followers
Don’t fret out of towners (or those of you gallivanting in a warmer weather state this month)–you can join too! The best part about a virtual event, right? While we understand your wines will be different from what we’re sampling in the Twin Cities, grab a bottle of each of the following varietals:
- Sauvignon Blanc (while this won’t be sparkling, unless you can find the Bodkin, you’ll at least be sipping on the same grape varietal)
- Cabernet Franc (this will be a red vs. white that the Twin Cities folks will be drinking but it’s the same grape varietal)
- Cabernet Sauvignon-dominate red blend (this just means that there are multiple grape varietals included in the wine but we recommend having the highest percentage be the Cabernet Sauvignon grape varietal)
Grab your peeps and get your tickets today. Follow-up details with the dial-in and other need-to-knows will be sent out leading up to the event. Looking forward to “seeing” you in a couple weeks to sip, share and celebrate!
Cheers, love and red wine,
Carin & Sarah
