Announcing....







We finally opened up this past Monday, with little fan fare or announcement -- I wanted to try to have a softer opening, to work out the kinks prior to word getting out and us being overwhelmed with a very gracious and generous reception. We did have a few quieter days, but by the weeks end - we received our aforementioned reception, and fortunately while we still had some new staff being trained - for the most part, we had the basic concept of how we were going to run things.


If anyone is interested -- we received some fabulous feedback from the Passionate Foodie -- who in my opinion is rather like the Phantom Gourmet of the Wine & Cheese world. Check out his blog for his take on our second location...

We have a tasting coming up in our Melrose shop this coming Friday -- Bogle Phantom Zinfandel. And on Halloween night - it's Veuve Cliquot for all! A special "Yelloween" tasting for those who are jaunting out and about on All Hallows Eve...


Incase you don't already know - we are on Twitter, @beaconhillwine.

And finally, if you're looking for suggestions to add to your wine glass -- let me leave you with this one - tonight would be a really nice Montepulciano evening. Try Masciarelli's Montepulciano D'Abruzzo....it's dry, yet soft and fruity -- and for a rainy night such as this -- it would be perfect for relaxing in front of the fire and watching a movie.
Enjoy...

LOL, thanks -- I don't know why but no matter what I do - the word "We" won't go down the line - no matter how many paragraphs I enter into the code. Clearly a blogger glitch! :) Thanks for pointing it out though... talk to you soon! :)

I went to check out the review and the link is wrong. You might want to post to this link directly: http://passionatefoodie.blogspot.com/2009/10/beacon-hill-wine-gourmet-now-open.html

It took me a while to find it.

Thanks Susan! He posts so frequently, sometimes multiple times a day - so we probably were lower in the archives. Thanks for letting me know!! :)
