I’ll re-purpose my note to the mailing list: A Message from Our CEO, in Which He Feigns Concern
In these trying times, I hope it will bring you some comfort to know that I am doing just fine. My family and I are modeling responsible social distancing in a bunker at a safe remove from the unwashed masses. Running perilously low on Wagyu, but we all must bear our privations without complaint, I suppose. I’d think about venturing out, if it weren’t for fear of being spotted by one the jackbooted thugs on NextDoor. Still, we can’t be expected to go on like this much longer, can we? Maybe I’ll send one of the kids. And where the hell is my stimulus check, already!?
And you? We, here at Kendric Vineyards, are committed to helping you bear up equally stoically. That’s why we invented Wine™. Wine™ may help ease the inevitable bouts of anxiety, boredom and desperation to escape the rest of your house-bound family that are a natural part of sheltering in place. Four out of five isolated patients report that they “don’t know where the time went” while taking the recommended dosage of Wine™. Talk to your Doctor about Wine™. After all, they have nothing better to do right now. Together, you and Wine™ can make this whole episode a very vague and difficult-to-piece-together memory.
And there’s never been a better time to try Wine™! Because now, for a limited time (like, this weekend only) Kendric Vineyards is having an everything-must-go, bare-to-the-walls, 50% off, inventory close out sale on all remaining, end-of-vintage Wine™. Just go to https://www.wineweb.com/scripts/secure/order.cfm/kendric and enter Promo Code CLOSE OUT to receive 50% off your entire order.
The fine print: quantities are limited; volume discounts don’t add to 50% savings; no normal shipping discounts apply; clicking “Hold for pickup at winery” at checkout is advised for locals; pickup days will be this Sunday at 48 Tamalpais Ave. in San Anselmo and Monday at 401 13th St. on Treasure Island (social distancing protocols observed); reasonable alternative arrangements for larger orders can worked out; clearly, this sale favors SF Bay Area residents, but that’s only fair, considering our heightened sensitivities; IL and WA residents should contact me directly, owing to a lapse in shipping permits there.
Yours in mental health,
All but the sangio come from my vineyard in Marin, so they skew to the cooler climate end of the CA spectrum. The sangio is from my Mom’s Shenandoah Valley vineyard. So, definitely warmer but picked in, I hope, a timely manner to avoid superripeness. The whites and rose tend to be pretty light and bright, and the reds tend toward earth and spice.
