I just got back from a great visit to Phoenix where I went to meet and thank our loyal Estate Subscribers and Talley Family Program members. It was such a rousing success, we agreed that we’d like to do it again, perhaps in your neighborhood!
If that's of interest to you, please contact us with your suggestion, and we may just show up for a visit.
When Direct Sales Manager Alyssa Ball proposed the idea of hosting an event in Arizona, I was a bit skeptical. The first thing we needed to do was find the right venue. We did a bit of research and learned that a restaurant called Nook Kitchen, located in downtown Phoenix, would be a great fit: they love our wine, they have the same commitment to hospitality that we do, and best of all, they have great food. As our Events Coordinator, Nikki Price started working out the details of a reception there and came up with the idea to add a wine dinner the night before. Erika Crawford, Nook’s Director of Events happily agreed!
We kicked things off on Tuesday night, when Chef Nick LaRosa prepared a sumptuous four course meal paired with our wines. My highlight was his filet of beef with a Brussels sprouts puree, which was great with our 2015 Rosemary’s Vineyard Pinot Noir.
Wednesday afternoon was a casual reception on the Nook Kitchen patio, featuring their signature pizzas and appetizers paired with our wines. Things were a little quiet to start, but thanks to some encouragement from Nikki (aka pitching our wines to passerby on the street corner), the patio was soon full of people excited to learn more about what we do, sign up for our mailing list and order wine. Next thing I knew, I looked at my watch, and told Nikki it was time to scramble to make sure we caught our flight home. Erika thoughtfully prepared a to-go box for us, since we’d been too busy to eat.
Our brief sojourn to Phoenix was a great success:
we said thanks to our most loyal customers and made some new friends. We're looking forward to future visits, maybe in your area!
