October, 2007


Jennifer Stanton of Wines by JenniferHappy October to everyone!

The leaves are finally turning here in the beautiful Midwest, so Halloween and all the fun and fright it brings can't be far behind.

Because we believe that you're never too old to have fun on Halloween, we've decided to have a Halloween costume contest at Wines by Jennifer.

Wear Your Halloween Costume to Wines by Jennifer on Saturday, October 27th from Noon - 8:00 PM

Boo!If you've got a Halloween party to go to Saturday night (or even if you don't), just stop by the shoppe on your way for a little pre-party libation with your fellow Halloween frolickers.

We'll be taking pictures of all the contestants and posting them at Wines by Jennifer for review and voting for "Best Costume" by our customers on Tuesday and Wednesday of the following week.

To the Victor Goes the Spoils!

The "spoils" in our contest means a free bottle of your choice from our "Spooky Halloween Wines" on the tasting table all week, so drop by from 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM on Saturday, October 27th to show off your costume.

You might even want to do a wine tasting while you're there so you can pick out your favorite bottle in advance!

Happy Halloween to all and enjoy the newsletter!

Pinot's "Fun Wine Factoids"


"Pinot" - The Official Feline of Wines by Jennifer


  • The vintage year on a bottle indicates the year the grapes were grown, not necessarily the year the wine was bottled or released.

  • In the Middle Ages, wine was used as currency.

  • The largest cork tree in the world is known as “The Whistler Tree.” Located in the Alentejo region of Portugal, it averages more than one ton of raw cork per harvest – enough to cork 100,000 bottles of wine.

  • Wine ages more slowly in larger bottles than in smaller bottles.

  • The Pinot wine grape family comes in three colors -- black (noir), white (blanc), and gray (gris).

Wines by Jennifer Featured Testimonial


Ms. Stanton,

What a wonderful surprise and introduction to Kansas City your charming wine establishment was for me. I arrived from San Diego with five hours to fill before meeting a cohort coming from Maine and spontaneously followed a brown historical site sign along I-29, where I luckily walked up Main Street and found you. Your displays and presentations were attractive and fresh, the staff most pleasant and knowledgeable, and Al and I had a good chat about wood turning.

Thanks to you and your friends and staff, I had a delightful visit and a well-prepared meal down the street at the upstairs bistro.

The Wine Bible

by Karen MacNeil

The Wine BibleKaren MacNeil is director of the wine program at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa, California. She is a prolific writer and consultant on the subject of wine, with articles appearing in magazines and newspapers from Wine Spectator to The New York Times.

The Wine Bible is grounded in the fundamentals, but is enriched with asides, tips, anecdotes, definitions, glossaries, illustrations, maps, and wine labels. With over 900 pages and more than 500 photos, maps and charts, this book has something for everyone.

This book is a staple in our tasting room, so stop in and ask to see the book that Robert Mondavi calls "the most complete wine book ever."
