Aim Pop Fire... You Took Out a Vampire!


I can't think of a more perfect wine for Halloween.

At a party? Deep dark wine bubbles to the top of your glass as you sip and stir your bubbling caldron with your witches broom.

Handing out candy? One Hershey for Batman and two for you... sip sip.

Watching one of the top ten Halloween Movies... A Nightmare on Elm Street? Drink champagne... no nightmares! I'm not making this up :)

Or, maybe the night is Dark, the fog is rolling in, the trees are dripping creepy with rain and the wind is howling... or is it the werewolves???
Pop a bottle of Sparkling Twilight... Aim, Pop, Fire... Bulls Eye! You took out a vampire!

Saturday only... Sparkling Twilight wants to fly out of the winery and protect you on Halloween. Mention my email and I will take $10 off.

I really have to do this... need to provide you with extra protection.... especially on the Olympic Peninsula!

What To Take To Bed With You At Night?


Consider this a Public Service Announcement from a Working Girl at Olympic Cellars.

I thought this was a good and practical idea. Also, one I will use at the winery.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it.
It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around.

After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.

Yappy Hour at Olympic Cellars Winery

What is a "Yappy Hour".... basically it is a Happy Hour that doesn't discriminate against canines. A Yappy Hour is not new. You will find them across the country. Each Yappy Hour is a fun event hosted at various venues. The focus can be social or educational and usually has a fundraising component for dogs and cats in need and the local Humane Society.

And, It's a Guaranteed Barking Good Time!

This is a first time event for us on the Peninsula in support of the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society and sponsored by Olympic Cellars Winery and Harley... my new Winery Dog in Training.

This tail wagging event will take place on Saturday, October 16, at Olympic Cellars Winery in Port Angeles from 6 - 8 p.m. There will be a $10 cover/donation for the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society.
You don’t need to have a pet "date" to attend. Join us for Yappy Hour, support the OPHS and just maybe you'll find your new best friend... dogs and cats will be looking for adoptive parents.

Meet Dr. Suzy Zustiak, the new Shelter Manger and On-Site Veterinarian

"Animal Themed" Music by Double Exposure, DJs Howard and Leslie
Signature Yappy Hour "Human Treat" by Viaggio Catering and Pizzeria
Human Munchies, Healthy Dog Kibble from Best Friend Nutrition
Wine By the Glass, non-alcoholic beverages and complimentary water bowls

We're learning so please read the fine print below

All small breed, well-behaved, people-friendly, dog-friendly pooches that are spayed/neutered (just in case there's a love connection) are welcome. Also, dogs need to be current on shots. The cellar is a confined space and big/small dogs might not mix well until we get a better handle on the whole human/dog social hour. This is our trial run. In summer when we can be outside then we can really get creative.

Thanks for your support,

Kathy and Harley
