Notes From the Winemaker - December 19th, 2011


I hope that 2011 held for you and your family great delights, planned or unexpected. Please join us to welcome 2012 with a particularly bright New Year's Feast at Palladio, for which some seating still remains available. Response to our unprecedented offer of free shipping for 6 bottles of Octagon 2007 or 6 bottles of Philéo from our online wine shop, which continues through January 8th, has been very strong, and we are happy to have built a particularly gorgeous feast around this great vintage of Octagon. As Palladio's last offering before the annual closing (re-opening January 25th), our New Year's celebration is always the best of our best, as we think you will see, below. Give Taz Greer a call to reserve the date (540) 832 - 7848.
