It's late as I write this. Or early, I suppose. I have trouble falling asleep. It's always been this way. I'll close my eyes and lie still but my thoughts run wild into the night, playing tag with every imaginable subject. To be clear, there is no intellectual merit here. These are absurd thoughts: What if I have an unrealized fencing talent? Why aren't there more options for sandwiches in this town? I should exercise more... Do animals have inside jokes too? It's probably too late for an NBA career. Who is Victoria? And what IS her secret? Someone should form a Bon Jovi cover band doing country versions of their hits. They could be called Living on a Prairie. Good one, Daniel. Hey, thanks, me. It's lame, I know.
Since we opened OAKLAND YARD six months ago, things have been a bit different. When I crawl into bed these days most of my thoughts now connect to the shop, to wine, to weddings and special events, to deliveries and weekly tastings. To you. I think about what this shop can be and what you'd like it to be. I think about what we could be doing better and about what you may be needing from your neighborhood wine shop.
Please know that these weekly communications are two-way tracks. We're all ears. All eyes. All love. Send us an email or (better yet) come on in to the shop for a tasting flight or just to chat, anytime. Let us know what we can do for you and how we can help. Give us a call. Write us a haiku. Sleep well knowing OAKLAND YARD is here for you.
