2011 - A Year in Review at Faustini Wines

The year 2011 will always be remembered as the year we laid the foundation for our family business for the next decade. So much has changed since the beginning of the year that I thought I would do a quick review of some our changes and offer a glimpse into the future at Faustini Wines.

2011 - A Year in Review at Faustini Wines

  • Launched our new website along with wine clubs, social networking integration and onsite reviews

  • Partnered with a new fulfillment house which allows us to provide enhanced customer service for shipping orders.

  • Successfully moved our production facility that provides us the ability to grow

  • Added three new vineyard sources (two of which are certified organic)

  • Successfully launched a new wine brand at the Atlantic City Food and Wine Show - Play Date

  • Secured distribution for our wines in New York and New Jersey wine markets

  • Hired a full time winemaker to help shape the direction of our wine programs

  • Harvested and crushed our first ever vintage of Napa Valley Malbec

  • Launched our first holiday gift package with our partners 2 Chicks with Chocolate and Wine Soiree'

  • Lastly, we ended the year with a bang with our nationally televised interview on Fox Business News http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/1314987374001/turning-wine-passion-into-a-successful-business/

Now that the foundation is in place, its time to look forward. We fully expect to have our wines represented in more and more fine restaurants in NYC and NJ in 2012. We will be expanding our portfolio to include a new Cabernet Sauvignon called "1023". This is a 100% Cabernet from a certified organic fruit source in Rutherford. We also plan to expand the Play Date line of wines.

Lastly (and some might say most exciting), is the opening of our tasting room in Napa in the spring of 2012. We have been working hard on this for most of 2011 and are now ready to go. Please plan to visit us this summer and join our mailing list to be notified about our grand opening party!

Cabernet Harvest Begins

We have been patiently waiting and now the day is here. Today we harvested our Cabernet Sauvignon from our certified organic vineyard source in Rutherford. More on the 2011 harvest in the weeks to come but for now, here's a sneak peak of the fruit coming in.
