2017: A Year In Wine
It’s been quite the year for us at Twelfth Night Wines! 2017 was all about growth and good wine. We bottled delectable new wines, expanded to new stores, and spread our name at charitable events and fundraisers. Twelfth Night has remained committed to community and creating the highest quality of wine possible. We would like to thank all of those who have helped us become what we are today. Read more about our recent adventures below and have a happy new year!
It was a beautiful day for a harvest this year. In Central Otago, the sun was shining as our team carefully picked beautiful bunches of ripe Pinot Noir grapes to be trucked off to the winery for processing. Our harvest crew hailed from all over the world and as usual there was a spirit of fun and camaraderie in the vineyard. For a detailed look at our experience harvesting, check out this video
Introducing new wines
We have some brand new varietals to add to our ever-expanding wine list. This year we introduced a Pinot Noir Rose and a Late Harvest Gewurztraminer. Twelfth Night now offers five different wines including a Sauvignon Blanc, a Riesling, and Pinot Noir. Whether you’re lounging at home with the kids or hosting a dinner party, we think you’ll be able to find something tasty that suits your mood!
Expansion to new stores
Twelfth Night is now being sold in more stores across the United States. In 2017 we expanded to three additional states including North Carolina, Florida, and Indiana. We couldn’t be more excited to keep introducing our quality product to as many people as possible.
Charities and festivities
We have become quite good at multitasking, simultaneously pouring wine, meeting new people, snapping photos, and helping others. We were proud and thankful to attend many charitable events this year. It was our fourth year supporting the WGBH Food & Wine Festival, our second year supporting We Can at the Wequassett Resort in Cape Cod, and our first year at various other important fundraisers. We believe that food and wine is a great way to bring people together.
In Store Wine Tastings
If you were in Boston at all this year, it is possible you may have tried some of our wines in a local store. From the Brookline Liquor Mart in Chestnut Hill to Pemberton Farms in Cambridge to Baccos Wine & Cheese in Boston, we got around. We love talking to new people (wine connoisseur or not). If you happen to run into us in the future don’t be afraid to ask questions, we’ll be sure to give out a generous pour!
It’s safe to say 2017 was a great year for Twelfth Night. Lucky for us, every year is a year in wine. Check out our time at one of our favorite times favorite festivals!
