MARCH 2021

DID YOU KNOW. . . that the date for the winery's "Springtime Deck Re-Opening" is Friday, March 26! Say a prayer, if you do, that it's sunny and warm because we still have to do the outdoor thing.
                                                             Hope to see you, Maryl

Well, I guess you do now -- that the website is finally up and running! Please, please don't ask me what happened. I'll only say that the website must be at least 10 years old and after being down for almost two weeks, it winds up that the domain/host provider (I'm not sure what that is), is slowly eliminating access to these old sites. Thank you very much!

To make matters worse, my dearly beloved Jerry, took care of contracting it all those many years ago. And, if I ever get to ask him about it, my first question will be -- and why did you put the contract in YOUR name, YOUR email address, YOUR user name (with and/or without) your middle initial, and YOUR password (which probably has changed 20 times in ten years) without telling me?

      and that's why I don't want to talk about this any more.

But what I do want to talk about is that in spite of everything that could be thrown at all of us in 2020, folks are still coming by to "curbside" purchase! Isn't it amazing how humans have the ability to react, recover AND rebuild even after facing death, the loss of businesses and jobs, the harm it's done to our children? It'll take time for sure but right now that's all we have. And I, for one, know we can do it.

      Take care, stay well. Hope to see you in soon, Maryl


DID YOU KNOW. . . that I'm back in the cellar again? That's true. If you can believe it, I've taken a break from the reams of paperwork, etc., and spent the last two weeks in th.e cellar doing the "wine thing". Even though it's really hard laboring work, it almost seemed like a mini vacation -- crazy, I know. If you're even a little hyper, you know what that's about.

So, if you waited for that last week before closing and were disappointed that I sold out of almost every sweet wine, wait no longer because I just finished processing Sweet Madeleine, Claudia's Kiss and Ruby Red! Of  course this is just the beginning, although I'll be in and out, I'll will be here in Ulster Park for the rest of the winter. This means you can call me any time for "Curbside Pickup". Every time I finish processing and bottling another wine, I'll post it right here on The Wine List. Just call me at 845-331-8642. If I'm not here, leave your name and number and I'll call you as soon as I get home.

Also, I KNOW YOU DIDN'T KNOW THIS. . . and, in lieu of the Covid disaster, I've decided to come back slowly to the way things were before Covid! My regular customers will remember the days of -- buy a case, get two FREE bottles. Well, I can't go that far but I'll be offering ONE FREE BOTTLE per case or 10% OFF your case price. Whichever you choose, you'll still be able to accumulate the 12 bottle case. I've got my fingers crossed that we'll soon be able to return to the pre-Covid economy. We did it once. We can do it again!

I haven't determined the re-opening date yet but it's usually a week or so before Easter. I'll post that here, on my phone message, on Facebook and on the old letter sign at the winery. In the meantime, call me any time for "Curbside Pickup" at 845-331-8642.

                              Stay well, stay safe, keep giggling, Maryl
