A New Year's message from Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery
Join us for a New Year's Eve Afternoon Cigar & Wine Event at Somerset Ridge!
To help usher in 2011, we are having a very special event on New Year's Eve afternoon from noon to 5. Master cigar roller Corey Frisbee will be in the tasting room rolling custom cigars for your New Year's pleasure!
You can select from a variety of premium tobaccos and cigar sizes while watching a master craftsman roll your own custom cigars.
What better way to bring in 2011 than enjoying your own custom cigar with a glass of Somerset Ridge Tawny or Ruby port?
We hope to see you for this special event. If you have friends & family in from out of town, bring them by!
Winery Hours: 11-5 Wed-Friday; 12-5 Sunday. CLOSED THIS SATURDAY, NEW YEAR'S DAY.
A message from Lidia to share with you
With the New Year just around the corner and resolutions being drafted, and ready to be put into action, I too, want to approach this coming year with a significant, and close to the heart, resolve.
My resolution for 2011 will be a conscious effort to not waste food. This effort will be made not only by myself, but by our employees in our restaurants and retail shops. I will also take the opportunity to share this message in the media, and my teachings throughout the year.
The world produces 120% of the food it needs, and yet there are people still hungry. We are all concerned about being "green," but according to some of the latest statistics that I read, one third of the world's gas omissions are produced by wasted food. The actual waste of the food, coupled with all the energy, labor and materials used in producing this food, are all contributing to this serious problem.
The solution seems rather simple, and all of us have it in our power to make a difference! So let's start a movement as a nation, and rekindle an old saying "Waste Not Want Not", which has much relevance today, and for our future.
Commit with me in this movement by joining my Community Table. Share in the discussion of how you will make a commitment to not waste food in the coming year- what you will do to help! You can also write to me about how you will become a part of this mission at firstname.lastname@example.org
Spread the word far and wide amongst friends and family- we all have the power to make a difference by not wasting food. It starts with us, in our own homes, and at our own tables.
May I add my warmest wishes for a Happy and Safe New Year!
