Share Your Love Story

February 8, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

The other day we launched what’s turning into a really fun and heart-warming project. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we asked people to send us their love story. We’ve been getting some really lovely stories and we’re going to share them with you here.

Then, on Valentine’s Day we’re going to do a random drawing of all of the submissions and the winner will get our special Sweetheart Package – dinner for two at their favorite restaurant (we’ll buy a $100 gift card for them) and a $50 gift card to shop at R. Stuart & Co. (online or in our Wine Bar). Wouldn’t this be the ideal time for some Love, Oregon wine? Perfect for the occasion.

This first story I’m going to share actually came to us after we had the idea to do this project, but before we announced it to the public! (We took it as a sign that it was a good idea.) Sandra was writing to us to say that she and her husband are planning to come for a visit, but she included this sweet story, and it even includes a cameo appearance of one of our wines!

Here’s Sandra & Chip, and their story is below ~


I wanted to tell you that your Big Fire wine is very special to my husband and I as it was the wine we had on our first date! We were falling in love and not even realizing it as we were good friends going skiing and having wine with dinner at a little ski resort in West VA called Snowshoe ski resort. We treated ourselves to a fancy dinner there at the restaurant at the top of the mountain and fell in love with your wine and each other. Now we live in Seattle of all places and want to drive down for a romantic weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary in November of this year. We will have been married 7 years and had your wine 10 years ago. You guys were only 5 years old at the time. Anyway, we are going to try and find a little bed and breakfast and come to your wine store and sip a glass for our anniversary.

We cannot wait to meet you in November Sandra & Chip, and to raise a glass with you on your anniversary! Cheers!

Check back for another love story tomorrow, and send yours in too!
