Attend one of the many ‘Cheers to 10 Years’ events taking place throughout October as Wine ConneXtion marks this major milestone.
Wine ConneXtion, a fine wine destination located in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts, announced today that it is celebrating ten years of offering “excellent wines at exceptional prices.”
Since its opening in 2009, Wine ConneXtion has had the privilege of offering customers a unique wine-purchasing experience in a welcoming – yet meticulously organized – atmosphere. Wines line the store in aisles perfectly ordered by grape, region and country. Each wine has a descriptive narrative to educate customers, ranging from characteristics of the wine to ideal food pairings.
In 2015, the store expanded its retail offerings to include artisanal spirits such as single and small batch bourbon, whiskey, scotch, vodka, rum and more with the launch of “The BackRoom” at Wine ConneXtion. To the delight of customers and enthusiasts alike, Wine ConneXtion has most recently added a large selection of popular craft beers to its coveted retail offerings, including hard-to-find brews as well as local favorites.
“Our philosophy has always been about earning trust with our customers. We do this by constantly educating our staff and selecting only those wines we believe are great values for your money,” said Tina Messina, Co-Owner of Wine ConneXtion. “In today’s world of indifferent online shopping, we offer our customers a true experience to expand their palates through our weekly complimentary wine tastings and encourage them to taste different types of wines through our ‘try before you buy’ program where we have over thirty wines on tap for customers to taste, free of charge.”
Wine ConneXtion’s anniversary month starts off with three special wine tastings:
Saturday, October 12, 2019, 1:00PM-5:00PM: Michael David Winery, featuring David Phillips. Co-Owner and President of Michael David Winery, David Phillips, is debuting “Freakshow” Chardonnay and bringing some very exclusive wines, including a “winery only” red blend. Attendees have an opportunity for him to autograph large format bottles and a chance to win one of two “Freakcycles,” Freakshow-themed bicycles, with proceeds from the raffle going to support Lazarus House in Lawrence, MA.
Wednesday, October 16, 2019, 7:00PM-9:00PM: Canard Vineyard, featuring Adam Fox. Canard Vineyard is dedicated to creating wines of distinction with an emphasis on quality over quantity. Attendees have a very rare opportunity to experience their “small batch” wines, which have production levels of 2000 cases or less each year, with managing director of Canard Vineyard and wine expert, Adam Fox.
Saturday, October 19, 2019, 1:00PM-5:00PM: Klinker Brick Winery, featuring Farrah Felton-Jolley. The namesake of Klinker Brick’s “Farrah” Syrah, Farrah is the daughter of winemaker Steve Felton and represents the sixth generation of Feltons making wine in Lodi, CA. Attendees will be able to sample and buy “winery only” items and a “tasting room only” Carignane.
