Be sure to check out their pomegranate desert ice wine! Yummy goodness!

A lot of us are not able to afford to go shopping this year and those of us who are have to be creative and very frugal. Sure there are a few of you out there who are still doing well for yourself regardless of the economy but hey…if you are looking for a simple gift solution and can afford 20 to 30 bucks and the person you are shopping for likes wines…you are in luck!

My good friends downtown at Vintner’s Cellar has the perfect gift solution with no fuss yet it can be customized to your liking. A bottle of wine with a custom label looks really cool and don’t forget…Vintner’s Cellar wines are handcrafted and very delicious! You can order while you wait the wine of your choice. You can even go online and design your own label at www.222wine.com or in person. Make if fun and memorable…the bottle most likely will be saved long after it is empty.

For those in a hurry…they have gift baskets already made up and ready for pickup starting at 75 bucks. Owners Alan and Jana along with their friendly staff are great at helping you decide and they offer free samples on most all of their wines. I am still here sampling…so pardon me but I just thought it would be fun to share this gift giving idea. Please send mine to…ha ha

Directions to Vintner’s Cellar as well as their phone number can be found on their website 222wine.com

Was getting to be slim pickens by afternoon on the big ones since the lines were long and hungry for big haul of fresh Dungeness Crabs at Buz’s Seafood earlier in the day. Still plenty left…$3.95 per pound.
