The wine world also has blockbusters, wines so famous that even non-wine drinkers are on
Sheri vs Rich Throwdown!
Ladies and Gentlemen, step right up! Prepare yourselves for a truly fearsome sight. In this corner: Sheri Carl, aka Scary Sheri. She might not look formidable, but she packs some unusual wines, served with a strong side of sarcastic wit. On the other side: Rich Ricci, a seasoned wine professional with a dark past involving beer and headbanger music. Sheri and Rich tend to argue over who is our best wine rep, so we decided to find out. In a head-to-head tasting, who will WIN?
Better yet, why should you care?
For sure, it will be loads of fun to watch Sheri and Rich battle it out. And the wines will be delicious. But the ‘Throwdown’ will determine the contents of this year’s Customer Favorite Sixpacks, the marvelous, flexible, all-purpose collection of 3 reds and 3 whites that we roll out on the Friday after Thanksgiving: one bottle each of Bubbly, Crisp White, Creamy White, and Silky, Velvety, and Bold Reds, packed in a reusable tote. .
Sheri and Rich will be pouring one each of the six categories above. You’ll taste the wines, then vote for your favorite in each category. Whoever wins the most categories ‘wins’ the tasting. In the event of a 3-3 tie, Jace has been designated the tiebreaker. We’ll put Rich and Sheri at opposite ends of the store with Jace in the middle; whoever he goes to first will win. Rich and Sheri have both been bringing him extra dog treats for weeks. This is as much about bragging rights as it is the wine sales. Also, we *may* have a crown for the winner.
We work at a lean margin on these sixpacks; they’re a superb bargain. But what you’re really buying is the gift of time. Whether you need a holiday gift, a hostess gift, or an ‘oh, no, I didn’t buy a gift for this person’ gift, a sixpack of nice assorted wines plays well. Or maybe you’d like to restock your own wine rack, so when you finish attending a Christmas concert/ shopping and wrapping/ cooking up a storm, or whatever, you have some nice bottles ready and waiting, without heading out to buy some then and there.
Tasty wine at a good price, handily packed to be ready when you are. You’re the real winner.
