Introductions: Max and the Oakland Yard Wine Club
My name is Jonathan, but most people call me Max, and I am a dedicated wine lover.
If my business partner, Daniel, were Lou Costello, I would be his William "Bud" Abbott, lanky and laconic.
Unlike my friend, Daniel, I don’t have a lot of stories, but I would like to tell you a bit about our shop and some of what we have to offer:
Basically, we’ve collected as many of our favorite wines as possible- from decades of drinking and tasting - and we’re really excited to share them with you.
We have sixty quality wines, well-balanced and off the beaten path, available for under sixteen dollars a bottle, and another four hundred distinctive selections lining the walls, stellar examples ranging from the classic to the obscure.
We feature well-priced tasting flights of selected wines Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons, and we welcome folks at all times to enjoy bottles of their choice in the shop for a nominal corkage fee.
I’m also pleased to announce the launch of our Oakland Yard Wine Club. For $42 a month + tax, members will receive 2 bottles we think are extra special and delicious, as well as a 20% discount on all of our public tasting events.
Club wines will be available for pickup on the first Sunday of each month, at which time members are invited to join us for a free tasting flight. Please call us or stop in to sign up and receive your first installation on Sunday January 8th!
