Can’t believe it has been so long since I posted a blog on my personal site. Needless to say I have been busy. Can’t believe summer is almost over and the rush of forth quarter really isn’t that far away.

Lot’s has gone on from a business perspective. Most importantly we launched the new Uncorked Ventures website. I am really happy with how it turned out. It does a much better job of representing who and what we are about. If we are uncovering and sharing some of the west coast’s greatest wines shouldn’t we have a website that represents that? Well, I think we have taken a big step in that direction.

wine gift basketsAlong with the launch of the new website we debuted our first wine gift basket offerings. Our gift baskets are focused on customers who lean more toward the middle to upper end of the market. At $125 / $175 you can choose between a 1 bottle or 2 bottle offering in three different wine gift basket categories. While our gift baskets won’t suit everyone’s taste, we are confident that it will be of interest to the savvy consumer.

Beyond the business, we have had an enjoyable albeit quick summer. With a few trips tucked in the weeks flew by. Always good to have some downtime and see our families. Throw in some good wine and bbq and everyone seemed to have a good time.

Now it’s on to the rest of the year which holds so much possibility. Hopefully we can achieve what we are hoping and planning for. Starting a small business has been an experience for sure. I do think the next 9 months will bear the fruit of our efforts to date. I have sure enjoyed the positive feedback we have been receiving from our growing customer base.

Cheers to the possibilities!
