Friendly, helpful staff, and tastings!
Ithaca, NY (PRWEB) May 04, 2016
From 4PM-7PM, Thursday, May 5th, through Saturday, May 7th, Stonewall Wine & Spirits, located at 1284 Dryden Rd, Ithaca, will welcome the public and press to its Grand Opening. The store will feature tastings of Finger Lakes wines as well as staff favorites from other regions. Light food will also be provided each day during the tastings, while supplies last. Special discounts will be offered on multiple items throughout the weekend, and coupons for future visits will be offered.
Stonewall Wine & Spirits was created by Erik Newlin, a familiar face in Ithaca wine retail. Erik spent several years managing another Ithaca store, where he enjoyed the friendship and camaraderie offered by customers. As such, he decided to start his own store, focusing on friendly service, diversity of inventory, customer rewards, and tastings to promote discussion & interaction. Says Mr. Newlin, “The greater Ithaca area is a very strongly bonded community; it really does feel like family. Personal relationships with local customers, and everything I've learned and gained from them, are the reasons why I've devoted my life to retail. This community boasts a rare level of knowledge about wine and spirits, and an even rarer appreciation for selections that aren't yet on mainstream radar, so I'm very excited to open my shop here!”
Stonewall Wine & Spirits is a new retail wine shop, having opened on 4/26/16. It is staffed by team members who share Erik's passion for the industry, and his vision for a customer-service-driven store. The store features diverse selection, a robust rewards program, and experiential education for staff & consumers alike.
