It's hard to believe it has now been 14 years since Wine World opened our doors, bringing back something that was all but lost to the ages - good old fashioned customer service!
We're happy to see that you've gotten used to it - as well you should!
Way back then, having someone that you don't know walk up to you and offer to help was usually met with a healthy dose of skepticism. Today, you know exactly what to do... tell us what you're looking for and allow us to show it to you!
And I remember the first time I picked up a lady's purchases to carry out to her car! She said "Hey, that's mine!" with a look that said she thought I was trying to take it away from her! Nowadays, you know we're here to help you any way we can.
And in 2005, people would be awestruck to be offered a free taste of wine as you walked into the store. Things like that just never ever happened - at least until we got here.
Yes it's gratifying to see you've gotten used to something you've always deserved, but rarely got. And we're glad for our part in making that come true.
It's what we call the "Wine World difference"!
So now here we are at another birthday, and we'd like to invite you to help us celebrate! We've lined up some great tastings and some special friends.
For example Hugh Sisson, the founder of Heavy Seas Brewery (formerly Clipper City) is going to be on hand to pour you some of his fantastic craft beer, and probably tell you a story or two! Or three!
Or if wine is more to you liking, we've arranged for Boordy Vineyards to pay us a visit with some of their local favorites! If you're looking to support local, they're always a great bet!
Plus our good buddy Brian from Lazy River Barbecue is returning this year with some of the best 'cue on the planet! It's all made fresh right here on our premises and lovingly pulled from the bone by Brian's own skillful hands!
But we're still not done! Jay Carpenter, founder of Reservoir Distillery is making the drive up from Richmond just to party with us! He says he's planning a tremendous lineup of Bourbons for us (including all 3 "Hollands"!) because after all, nothing tastes better with slow roasted pork than slow aged whiskey!
This is going to be a one-of-a-kind experience! And we want to share it with you! Mark it on your calendar and plan to be here for all of the festivities!
Only at Wine World!
