Warning: Don't Read Any Further If You Don't Like Free Stuff!


Jennifer and Pinot Say Hello!Hi Everybody!

Jennifer and Pinot here, back with the latest edition of the Wines by Jennifer Newsletter.

As we were sitting in the Tasting Room the other day reflecting on our upcoming fourth anniversary in business (wow, has it been four years already?), we were thinking about how the main catalyst for our growth has been the generous word-of-mouth referrals from all of our wonderful customers. (Well, I was thinking about it, while Pinot was mainly trolling for pate!)

We Decided We Want To Give Something Back To You!

So, Pinot and I put our heads together and came up with just a little something for you to show our appreciation. And today, we'd like to express our gratitude by rewarding all of you who continue to help us build our Wine Club with your referrals with our new program:

"Wine Club Members Refer a New Wine Club Member and Receive a Free Tasting Gift Certificate for You and Your Referral"

Whew! That's a mouthful, but trust us, doing it is much simpler and easier than saying it. Just print this Referral Form, fill it out in advance, and have your referral bring it in to us when signing up for the Wine Club, and we'll have your Free Tasting Gift Certificate in the mail to you that day. Your referral can choose to take their free tasting on the spot, or receive a Gift Certificate for redemption any time in the future, if they prefer.

Use the Gift Certificates for yourself anytime, or give them to others as your way of saying "thanks."

Everyone Wins!

Thanks again for all your loyal patronage and we look forward to seeing you soon at the shop!

Jennifer and Pinot

P.S. These Gift Certificates contain:

        • No deadlines
        • No catches
        • No fine print

Just print, fill out, and give to your referral. Your Gift Certificate will soon be on its way.

P.P.S. Not yet a Wine Club member? You're missing out on the best Wines by Jennifer has to offer: monthly wines, special events, member discounts, and our new referral program. Just visit our Wine Club page for more details, or call us at 816.505.WINE and we'll get you set up in no time!

Pinot's "Fun Wine Factoids"

"Pinot" - Official Feline of Wines by Jennifer


  • The Mesopotamians were credited with producing the first wines in 6000 B.C.

  • If newer oak barrels were used in the winemaking process, the wines will often have a hint of vanilla in both the aroma and flavor.

  • The corkscrew was invented in 1860.

  • The longest recorded champagne cork flight was 177 feet and 9 inches, four feet from level ground, at Woodbury Vineyards in New York State.

  • According to scientist Bill Lembeck there are approximately 49 million bubbles in a bottle of Champagne.

Featured Testimonial

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for coordinating such a wonderful event for my friend Katrin's bridal shower this past weekend. It was really a special day and everyone had a wonderful time. It was a unique way to celebrate her day and I can't thank you enough for helping to ensure every detail was perfect! The wines were excellent (thank you for choosing wines from her home country of Germany - that was so special to her!), the food was amazing and the service was outstanding!! Thank you and I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know in the area.

Anytime I'm back in the area, I'll stop in for a tasting. I love your shop - it's really great!

Thanks again,

Jenny Marrs

"Adventures on the Wine Route"

A Wine Buyer's Tour of France

Adventures on the Wine Route - A Wine Buyer's Tour of FranceThis is a delightful book by Kermit Lynch, one of the most expert and opinionated members of the international wine community. I had the pleasure of meeting Kermit on a trip to the Bay Area where he personally signed my copy of his book. The few minutes spent with him were truly a highlight of my time in the industry.

"Adventures" details his 20+ years of travels through France searching out wines to import for his store in Berkeley, CA. It provides a comprehensive picture of all of the major wine-growing regions in France, replete with interesting anecdotes that almost make you feel as if you're there in France with him.

While Kermit is unabashedly a businessman first and foremost, his love of wine, winemaking techniques, and the subtleties of France's terroir shine through every page.

I highly recommend adding this book to your wine library!
