Changing Habits

December 10, 2010

BobI read an interesting article in the Globe and Mail recently about the changing habits of people regarding their beverage of choice. No longer can you assume that your male guests will drink beer or rye and Coke or that your female guests will drink white wine or some cocktail. THERE IS so much variety out there now. As a retailer in the ‘beverage industry’ I see this every day. It’s also reflected in our product offerings at Wine Sense. We have beer, every wine under the sun, liquere kits ‘mist’ wines and now our Twisted Mist cocktail kits. 


He's actually being chased by a margarita on a motorcycle!












This reminded me of something I recently witnessed. I was in Las Vegas for a holiday- I was in a casino that had posters up proclaiming ‘Vegas Biker Week’. I was sitting at a bar enjoying a beer and doing a little gambling when I saw 2 huge bikers walk by wearing the colours of a notorious biker gang. They sat down across from me and was shocked at what i saw next! One fellow was holding up his white wine doing the ‘Tim Vandergrift swirl’ with his glass. The other was admiring his strawberry margarita. I wanted to laugh to myself but thought better of it.

Yes it’s true… the times they are a changing.

Gift Cards- the Perfect Christmas Gift

December 10, 2010

NeilWith Christmas coming just around the corner a great idea for those wine makers on your Christmas list is Wine Sense GiftCards.  Over the past number of years gift cards have become a popular item for those hard to buy for people. When customers ask what to get the wine maker that has everything, I recommend a Wine Sense Gift Card. It can be loaded to any dollar amount and can be used anytime. Your favourite winemaker will get what they want or need- the perfect gift. 

Gift-Card-Left-Hand-MenuWine Sense Gift Cards also make a fantastic stocking stuffer as they come in any denomination.  They can be used for any item in the store including wine kits (if you’re not sure what style of wine your favourite winemaker likes). 

So make gift giving easy on yourself this year and give your favourite winemaker a Wine Sense Gift Card.

Happy Holidays to all our customers!
