Happy Holidays from Windham Wines 2023

| Thoughts
Kitten Under Tree 2023

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne!
And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
For auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We are nearly at the end of another year. When we review the year, it is through our memory and, as Robert Burns reminds us, those memories are made within relationships– deaths, births, celebrations (weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, retirement) jobs, moves, trips, dinners, catastrophes. It is especially during the difficult times that our friendship and family connections are so very essential. I am grateful for my “trusty friends” who are always willing to offer me a hand and a “cup of kindness.” I hope my hand has been extended as steadfastly when they have needed it. When we get to be of a certain age, “auld land syne” extends back impressively and, if we are really fortunate, we are still connected to some of those “auld acquaintance.”

For many of us, the close of the calendar year is a time for self-reflection, a time to consider what went well and what behaviors we want to change. Another year comes to a close, and a new year opens with all its hope and possibility, We begin the year with a clean slate, and determine to do better in the year ahead.

Each year, Windham Wines resolves to do our best to provide you with high value wines (which we measure via price-to-quality) and service that reflects the appreciation we feel for your support. We know that you shop with intention, i.e., that you make a choice to shop with us, and that choice embodies your trust that we have a portfolio of wines that we know, that have been tasted and approved as wines with character and identity, and that our objective is to help you select wines that fit your palate preferences. We renew that commitment again for 2024, with the knowledge that we can always improve.

Happy holidays, customer-friends. To your health in the year ahead.
