The Accidental Winemaker
I never dreamed that I'd be a winemaker! Several years ago, we came to California with our small herd of horses to escape the Florida summers. While my wife was fully involved with the horses, I became interested in the vineyards around our ranch. Met some good people, got interested. And now, in 2020, we've bottled the first of grapes that I helped source and blend, wines that have my input with the assistance of master winemaker, Steve Clifton.
Hopefully, you will enjoy drinking these wines as much as I've enjoyed making them.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Sounds so cut and dried. In reality, most of us cannot begin to imagine the sacrifice made by these folks and their families. We owe everything to them. So, take a few minutes, remember those who have sacrificed so that we can live the lives we lead. We are offering members of the military 35% off all orders and 10% off shipping. All the time, not just today. Please email Rona firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you set up in the system with the discounts.
It's also almost time for our Summer Wine Club shipments. Sign up or edit your choices by June 10th and we will be shipping (free to California) by June 15th (just in time for Father's Day). In addition to 15%, 20%, or 25% Club Discounts, use code CCWR10 for an additional 10% off your order AND we donate 40% of all proceeds for the month to a wildlife rehab center. That's up to 35% off (with our 6 bottle club) and even 25% off with our 2 bottle club.
It's been a bit of a rough month. After traveling a lot in April, we returned home and after a week of refusing Rona's efforts to get me to the Emergency Room I finally agreed. Apparently just in time as I got to spend a week as the guest of Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara. Fast forward a few weeks and we're doing fine and things are about back to normal.
I'd like to say thanks to our wholesale accounts for promoting Long Creek Wines! As Rona pointed out, that while Wholesale accounts buy by the case, we're happy to "mix and match" to make up the cases for you.
For our retail folks, don't forget that we offer case discounts to you all as well AND they can couple with our "feel good discount" of the month - this month for Coastal Carolina Wildlife Rehab.
Thanks again as we head into summer!
