Vincent is part of Guild Winemakers, a cooperative project with three other local winemakers (and friends) here in Portland. We have a big deal happening in August and September with Whole Foods Markets throughout the states of Oregon and Washington.
The centerpiece are special Guild wines – a 2011 Pinot Grigio and 2010 Merlot – bottled just for Whole Foods. The wines are both $10.99. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, look for them at your local store, but don’t delay. When they’re sold out, they’re gone for good.
Along with the promotion, Whole Foods has taken several cases of 2010 Vincent Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge for every store in both states. This wine is otherwise sold out but we put aside a bunch to make this deal happen. It’s really cool to see this kind of exposure for our little winery. We’re growing, sure, and something like this will help that growth continue. But who could have imagined this sort of thing a few years ago? We’re excited to say the least.
To round out the Guild Winemakers promotion, you can also find these wines from our Guild partners:
2011 Helioterra Pinot Blanc
2011 Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee
2008 Cana’s Feast Two Rivers Red
Definitely check them all out.
