Do you Want to Celebrate in September?

This year we did not plan a Harvest Grape Stomp or celebrate our own self-designated “Working Girl NO LABOR Day” Holiday. Not sure exactly why… maybe we felt these events had run their course. Or, with Benoit leaving and Harvest upon us I was in overwhelm mode.

But this is totally not like me. So I Googled September Holidays to see if there was something special to celebrate that had a link to the winery.

Well you can imagine my surprise at the following list… 16 month-long and 8 week-long observances with 44 holidays! AND, I deleted famous birthdays including Sesame Street characters and inventions… all except one; on September 22 the Ice Cream Cone was invented.

There were a few holidays that got me thinking about different winery celebrations but as hard as I tried I couldn’t find a link to “Elephant Appreciation Day”!
So why am I trying to make this so difficult. We’ve already declared our own self-designated observance, the “Working Girl NO LABOR Day” Holiday, the only day dedicated to doing whatever you want. We just didn’t have a winery event commemorating it.

So you pick a day! Enjoy it the way you want… No feeling guilty because the house isn’t clean or the lawn isn’t mowed (remember the Working Girl Wine Brand includes Handyman Red… this isn’t just for women).

And, if you want to sip on some of our wines on your special day I think you deserve a bottle. So here’s what I’m doing. While I can’t just give it away (and stay in business) with an order of 4 bottles, we’ll only charge you for 3. The 4th bottle, being of equal or lesser value, is free. This “Working Girl NO LABOR Day” offer is good through September 30.

Don’t delay, enjoy Your day, Kathy
