Last weekend while Hurricane Sandy was rolling in, I was attending a business conference for Women who Wow! These were all women business owners working together to help each other in our businesses. It doesn't get any better than that. Women flew, drove and made their way to the area…Because when you own your business you never get to stop doing business, even when there is a hurricane. But, back at the stores (where my mind always is…even in the wee hours of the night =) )thank goodness the Outer Banks mostly went unscathed. There were some businesses in the Outer Banks that took a hit and took it hard. Some are friends, some are customers (some are both). Although, we are out of the busy season, it still makes an impact on our economy. So please consider shopping in the Outer Banks this holiday season for your gifts. We have many great and unique businesses and a gift certificate is always a great gift as well!
We here at Chip's are really supporting and pushing the Small Business Saturday promotion that is being promoted by American Express. For those of you that haven't heard of Small Business Saturday yet…it's the day between Black Friday and Cyber Monday where you can get out and support the small businesses in your community. Not only would we love for you to shop here on Small Business Saturday, but think about supporting other small businesses in your community no matter where you live.
As the summer is winding down, I am tasting lots of new wines to bring in for the Fall. I found a great new Chardonnay that we will be tasting at tonight's wine & beer dinner!
Smoke Screen Chardonnay!
The cool thing is because of the times we live in, there are great opportunities to buy finished wine from high end wineries that, quite simply, are bottling less wine than they have in the past. This gives everyone the chance to buy these wines at a fraction of the cost. I used to work for a wine company that did just that and I really got used to drinking wines that tasted ALOT more expensive than they were.
So what is so special about this wine is that is comes from a Napa Valley chardonnay producing legend. This well known wine retails for $35-$40 a bottle under its famous winery label (which they are not allowed to divulge), hence the name Smoke Screen Chardonnay! So you can buy a top 5 premium Napa Chardonnay that had too much wine that he sold in a fire sale to someone who re-labeled it.
If you didn't get reservations for tonight's wine dinner, that's okay…you'll still be able to grab a bottle here at the KDH store, while supplies last! It's 100% Barrell fermented, with a creamy texture of peach and citrus with a hint of minerality. The tropical fruit really shines
through and it has a nice long finish. $23.99
New wine at Chip's!
When you’ve got a big, rare rib eye or a killer cheeseburger on your plate, do you really want a nice little fruity white wine or a delicate pink number in your glass? We didn’t think so. Sometimes the situation just calls for BIG, rich, mouthful of flavor, and that’s when you need a Champion in your glass!bNow don’t worry, this Cabernet Sauvignon isn’t just another big bruiser. The blackberry and currant aromas are swift and lingering (I know, we’re drifting into wine speak here, but we’re going to fight our way out of this corner). The rich fruit flavors don’t feint or dodge-they’re straight ahead and swarming. And like the best heavyweights, the flavors come at you in combinations and by the time you figure one out, you get hit with another. So just take a couple of sips and then goyour corner and catch your breath….Premium, oak aged Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Petite Sirah and Barbera. Three Collector’s Labels are available for each vintage. $10.99
