Its Been 10 Years in the Making

Its been 10 years in the making and we were looking forward to celebrating the completion of our wine cellar with the most wonderful of friends. With great friends come great ideas and with great ideas we didn’t have to think twice about hosting theVillage for an official “Grand Opening” of our wine cellar – Chateau Le Quickie.

Traditionally, having grown up in the Hawaiian Islands on the Island of O’ahu, there was nothing more fitting for our grand opening than having pupus on the menu. By definition, pupus [poo-poos] is any hot or cold bite sized appetizers, often served in a varied assortment. Talk about a varied assortment…It was perfect! From sushi to chocolate covered strawberries and everything in between. Let’s just say this was a wine tasting like no other.

It wouldn’t be a grand opening without having our winerdful friends bring their favorite bottle of wine for the highly anticipated ribbon cutting ceremony.
