Home from Mexico and Ready to Roll at UG!

We’re home from a fantastic vacation to Mexico, feeling recharged, relaxed and excited for a fast and furious spring full of events and lots of wine. When your job is wine, the best part of a vacation to Mexico (besides body surfing with those handsome boys!) is the LACK of wine.

We drank margaritas and cervezas daily – a much needed break for our palates. Our margarita lunches led to lots of surfside conversations about life, our passions and pursuits, and goals for the future. We also had an hour long discussion about which rapper I would marry if I had to marry a rapper. Here’s a sample:



“Slim Shady?”

“Still no.”

“Marshall Mathers?”

“None of the personas.”

“Wiz Khalifa?”

“No prison inspired neck tattoos – deal breaker.”

“Rev Run?”

“Actually a reverend. Grand Master Flash?”

“Actually a pimp.”

And so on. For an hour. God bless vacation. (For the record, my top three were Tupac, Dr Dre and Ice Cube. I clearly have a West Coast preference.)

Here are some exciting dates to keep on the books for this Spring:

April 9th: Our Sparkling Wine Grand Tasting from 3-6 PM

May 14th: Our Annual Rosé Wine Grand Tasting from 3-6 PM.

May 18th -21st: Nantucket Wine Festival, where TJ will once again be a Luminary at the event.

We’re also traveling to Napa and Sonoma at the end of April. Our blog and Instagram will be full of wine and adventure!

We’re excited to be home and look forward to seeing you at the store!
