to get back to the basics: a good meal and good wine,
the good company of family and friends, and attention
given not to the ever-lengthening list of things still
undone, but rather to the enjoyment and appreciation
of the many good things in our lives.
that in mind, please allow me the opportunity to say "thank
you" to each and every one of you, our valued
customers. I am very grateful that you are a part of
the Wines by Jennifer family!
