Introducing the Wines by Jennifer

"Road Trip Picnic Kit"

WBJ Road Trip Picnic KitAs we enjoy another busy summer here at Wines by Jennifer, it struck us that we sure have been spending a lot of time preparing coolers and baskets of food and wine for our various summer activities. Knowing that our customers might be doing the very same thing, we thought we could help, and thus was born the Wines by Jennifer Road Trip Picnic Kit, a "grab and go" collection of various food and wine items that's sure to please even the most discriminating palate.

Perfect for tailgating, picnics, boating excursions, outdoor festivals, trips to the lake, or any other you activities you have planned, we can prepare a basket-to-go for any budget. Just give us a call an hour or so before you're ready to go, and we can chill your favorite wine and have a basket waiting for you with everything you need so you can make a clean getaway to your destination.

Our baskets are totally customizable, too. Need a corkscrew? Glasses? Paper plates? Your favorite Osceola Cheese Factory cheeses? Salami and crackers? That special summer sparkling wine? Let us know and it will be in your basket!

So save yourself some time and effort this busy summer and let Wines by Jennifer do the work for you. Just call 816.505.WINE and we'll take it from there!

2008 Wines from Spain Far from Ordinary Wine Guide

Doug Frost, MS, MW - Contributor


Wines from Spain Far from Ordinary Wine GuideCreated by Wines from Spain and Kansas City's own Doug Frost, MS, MW, this beautiful 144-page book is packed with insightful, current and useful information on Spanish wines and cheeses, along with maps and eye-catching photographs.

Spain's wine industry is experiencing an unprecedented revolution in quality and diversity and this explosion has clearly placed Spain among the leaders in the wine world today.

These days, Spain's winemakers are adapting modern practices while also respecting the country's honored winemaking traditions. Additional, new wine laws are encouraging experimentation among producers, resulting in rich, lively, distinctly "Spanish"-styled wines that complement a broad variety of cuisines.

This purpose of this book is to enlighten the reader on all the exciting developments in Spanish wine, and it hits the mark!
