I think we can all agree that we’re ready to be done with 2020, one of the most unusual and stressful years of our lives. This Covid pandemic has been a season that none of us will soon forget, one that has hurt so very many people. We have kept you and your family in our prayers.

Gene joins me in this month’s blog to say thank you to all of our guests of Sassafras Springs Vineyard. Whether you have visited us for a wine tasting, dinner, small party or any event, we’re so grateful for your patronage. You, my friends, have blessed us and allowed us to continue to do business in these unprecedented times. We hope you’ve been able to come out to enjoy our beautiful spaces, which have allowed social distancing and a safe environment.

Christmas was a little different this year for most of us, but in spite of the challenges, we trust you were able to experience the good tidings and joy of the special season celebrating Christ’s birth.

Please continue to drop by and see us during the winter months. No reason to let the cold keep you from the warmth of companionship and relaxation with friends and family. We have new, beautiful outdoor firepits on our decks where you can gather around and sip wine. Choose whichever firepit you like from among several. We can even make you some hot mulled wine if you like. Just remember to bring your own blanket for snuggling, or you can purchase one of our comfy Sassafras sweatshirts.

Why not join our wine club this next year? We have so much fun at our monthly wine club meetings. Contact Drew@ssvwinery.com for information.

We send blessings to you for a safe and healthy New Year.

Here’s us raising a glass to you and to 2021 (and a little Auld Lang Syne).

Cheryl and Gene
