Spring has Sprung!
This email (this went out to our mailing list today) is a brief one, we are buried with all the great things happening this busy Spring Season. Our Spring 2016Release has kept us hustling in the shipping department. THANK YOU! A few cases of each wine are still available. Please note that the Lakota's View Sémillon and Thorn Ridge Pinot Noir are only available from the winery, these wines are very special small production and in high-demand...they will not see the light of day on retailer shelves anywhere.
Speaking of a few cases left...there is 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, 2014 Chardonnay and 2014 Riesling available. Today until April 1, SHIPPING IS ON US with a 4 bottle purchase or more, UPS Ground only. When placing your order use "2014whites" in the promo code slot to waive the shipping fee. Easy enough right? Visit our Wine Shop to purchase, while supplies last. Yes...you are welcome to pass this email along to your wine-loving friends.
PLEASE NOTE: We will stop ground shipping once the temperatures start soaring across the nation. The window is narrowing.
Smith Story Pinot Noirs are a perfect match with duck. We've had this combo enough times now to swear on our dog's life (Lord Sandwich that is!) that you'll love this pairing as much as we do.
A fabulous recipe from the legendary Liberty Ducks (located in Sonoma County) is now posted on Smith Story Eats.
So what else...
