Hello, 2019! Nice to meet you. We’re anticipating great things from you. Especially following 2018. We wrapped up the year in true Sip and Taste style with a staff party to end all staff parties. We all boarded Bustion to wine country for a delicious feast paired with fine wine at Luckett Vineyards. The menu didn’t disappoint and it was so great to have the entire team together under one roof. It is a rare and beautifully hilarious thing.
Many people have resolved to eat healthier, tighten up their fitness regime, or even go dry for January, so we’re making a commitment to bring even more incredible tours your way. While Taste Halifax is on hiatus for the winter months, Grape Escapes will continue to run two tours a week on Fridays and Saturdays. Plus, we’re busy brainstorming ways to enhance our 2019 tour offerings. Have an idea? Send it our way. We love getting input from our guests.
We’re also taking a moment to talk. January 30th is Bell Let’s Talk Day when Bell donates 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media video view in support of mental health initiatives in Canada. As business owners who promote and encourage the consumption of alcoholic beverages, we believe it’s important to talk about the mental health issues that come along with drinking. So let’s talk. Let’s talk about mental health and alcohol.
The month of February brings two important occasions our way: the Nova Scotia Ice Wine Festival and Valentine’s Day. Put the two together and you’ve got a ready-made Valentine’s experience for your sweetheart. Or if you’d prefer a more intimate experience, our Wine & Lunch Escape offers a cozy afternoon of tours, tasting and lunch at three of Nova Scotia’s top wineries. And, don’t forget to redeem that gift card your exceptionally thoughtful loved one gave you over the holidays. It’s simple to redeem online while booking your upcoming tour.
After that, it’s on to Spring Break staycations, anticipating the annual release of Tidal Bay and planning for our full summer schedule. But don’t wait for the weather to turn, join us for a winter wine tour for a truly unique view of our burgeoning wine industry. Until then, be well and drink local.
