A Farewell Wine Tasting and Special

by Jonathan Gaby on September 28, 2017

This post is bittersweet. it’s bittersweet because we are sad to announce that our store manager, Annie LaForge, will be leaving the wine racks, bar, and tasting table for another position in town. Our customers, and certainly our staff and owner have come to rely on Annie’s leadership and creativity to keep our shop running in tip-top shape day in and day out.

Some of you may not know that Annie came to us by way of New Jersey and she’s helped keep us all organized, trained, and equipped to serve you, our Capital Cellars family.  She’s made lots of great changes to the store, and hopefully those changes have been seen and felt as you walk amongst the wine, relax in our eating areas, and bellied up to the bar.

Certainly she will be missed. Everyone has loved working with her over the couple years that she has provided steady leadership and expertise.

So, with Annie leaving us, we pay tribute to her in the only way we know how.

Sell wine!

Tonight through Saturday (so 9/28-9/30) we are offering substantial discounts to our bottles of wine. From Thursday to Saturday:

  • 10% off 6 bottles or more of any wine in the store
  • 20% off 12 bottles or more of any wine in the store

This is a perfect time to stock up on your favorite vintages and varietals, or expand your wine cellar selection in your home!

Oh, and tomorrow we’re still going to have a wine tasting, where we will sample:

  • Ryan Patrick 2016 Riesling, Washington
  • Shine 2015 Riesling, Germany
  • 14 Hands 2014 Merlot, Washington
  • Santa Ema Reserva 2013 Merlot, Maipo Valley, Chile

We invite you to come wish Annie a fond farewell, and stock up on wines at the same time. While our sale will go on from open on Thursday to close on Saturday, our wine tasting will be from 4-7pm. We hope to see you here!
