Sign of the Times


Things here at the Epiphany Wines World Headquarters are progressing- albeit some things very slowly. We got the sign mounted on the front of the building, and I'm pleased at the way it turned out. It isn't the same font as our other marketing materials, but I still think it looks sharp.

On the legal side of everything, I learned today that it will be a minimum of 2-3 weeks before the wineries can get their wines registered with the state. Sure, this is a bummer, because I want to get some wine in here, and start selling it, but that's the way it goes. "Patience, grasshopper" seems to be my motto lately.

In other news, I met with a PR lady today, and went over my media launch for all things Epiphany. Surprisingly, I've already been doing the stuff that I needed to. I could probably use more exposure to the blog, but that's up to you all, not me. Hint, hint.

Wine-wise, I'll be tasting a few things with the wine writer for a coming-soon-to-STL food and wine rag tomorrow. We will look at the Sacred Stone (blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, Carignane, and Dolcetto) as well as the Chardonnay from Pietra Santa Winery in Hollister, CA. We will also look at Domaine St. Vincent- this is my new favorite cheap bubbly. It's the second label from Gruet, and is a method champenoise wine that will be available for about $10 retail! Here's to hoping she likes the wines, and writes about them!

That's all for today- time to contact more cool, boutique wineries, so you can have something good to drink.

Cheers.
