Valentine's Day is almost here!


How to Be a Superstar on Valentine's Day



It's that special time of year again and love is in the air. Are you ready? We hope so, because:

Time Is Running Out!

Your Valentine is waiting anxiously to see what you've got planned this year, and you don't want to disappoint. (Valentine's Day also happens to be Jennifer's wedding anniversary. How's that for pressure?)

Let Wines by Jennifer help you play Cupid this year.

We've put together some truly unique Valentine's Day packages to help you be a hero with your Valentine, plus:

Surprise Your Valentine with a Wine Basket from Wines by Jennifer!

We've Added a Special Twist Just for Valentine's Day!

We'll customize a Valentine's basket filled not only with wines and our ever-popular homemade chocolate truffles, but also balloons, fresh flowers (even always-tough-to-find-at-this-time-of-year roses), massage coupons for both you and your sweetheart, and all kinds of other goodies for that special person on this special day.

Wines by Jennifer: Your 1-Stop Valentine's Day Shop

Why run around town putting together all these items when you can do it with one phone call to 816.505.WINE? Order your basket worth at least $150 before 5:00 PM on Tuesday, February 13th, and we'll even throw in a free bottle of bubbly for you to share with your Valentine.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Your Friends at Wines by Jennifer

P.S. Remember, the big day is drawing near and we have a limited supply of massage coupons, so don't delay and risk missing out. Just call us at 816.505.WINE and we'll make you "shine with your Valentine."


And finally, we're asking your help regarding a subject near and dear to us: free enterprise.

Have you ever flown on an airline that offers massage chairs? A self-service minibar and snack fridge? In-flight manicures and pedicures? A service and reliability reputation second-to-none?

Unless you've been fortunate enough (as we have) to experience Virgin Atlantic's international service, probably not.

Well, an enterprising group of airline executives, led by our good friend Todd Pawlowski, is trying to bring that level of service to America. Unfortunately, the U.S. domestic airlines, clearly threatened by the prospect of competition, have thrown a significant amount of their political and financial capital at the Department of Transportation in an attempt to thwart the start-up of Virgin America.

If you're a proponent of free enterprise and open competition, exquisite in-flight service, and consumer choice, then please visit the Virgin America website and join us in telling your elected officials to "Let VA Fly!"

Pinot's "Fun Wine Factoids"

"Pinot" - The Official Feline of Wines by Jennifer

  • There are about 400 species of oak, though only about 20 are used in making oak barrels.

  • While Bordeaux is based on the chateau system, with estates bottling their own wines, Burgundy has many smaller holdings with wines sold to middlemen or negociants for vinification.

  • Did you know that there are 13 allowed varieties used to make the red blends for Chateauneuf-du-Pape?
  • The U.S. will supplant France as the world's biggest wine consumer by 2010 as the global wine market expands to 31.8 billion bottles, research says. The U.S. national wine market is expected to be worth $22.8 billion by 2010.

  • Pinot Noir is called Spatburgunder in Germany.

Passions - The Wines and Travels of Thomas Jefferson

"Passions -
The Wines and Travels of Thomas Jefferson"


I recently had the pleasure of reading this wonderful book, described as "a biography of Thomas Jefferson at leisure," written by James M. Gabler.

Jefferson was the most well-known and knowledgeable wine connoisseur of his time, but he also loved to travel "to see what I have not yet seen." This book tells the story of two of his greatest passions - wine and travel.

As many of you may know (and probably agree), Jefferson called wine "a necessary of life." Many of his favorites remain classic wines to this day: Haut-Brion, Lafite, Latour, Margaux, Yquem, Chambertin, and Schloss Johannisberg.

After reading this book and following Jefferson's wine travels through France, Italy, and Germany, you'll likely agree with the sentiments expressed by President Kennedy at a White House dinner honoring a group of Nobel prize winners that "this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever gathered together in the White House - with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

The Last Sip

The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

That's all, folks - see you next month!
