With Gratitude From Montesquieu Winery
November 25, 2011, by: Lisa Duff Khajavi
As we enjoy leftovers and reflect on our Thanksgiving celebrations—savoring quality time with friends and family sharing delicious dishes and favorite wines—we would like to be sure to say thank you to all the wonderful people that make up our Montesquieu Winery community.
Thank you to our clients all over the country, who have joined us on our journey of discovering and drinking some of the world’s most delicious and exciting wines. We are privileged to work with you, to get to know you and your preferences and share each other’s stories as we seek to enhance quality of life through the appreciation and enjoyment of wine. We are constantly inspired hearing how our wines have been a part of your lives; being a part of your wine experience is very meaningful to us!
Thank you to our friends, family and colleagues who collaborate on our passionate quest to find, make and enjoy great wines. From our warehouse staff who takes great care of our wines, to our admin making sure all the endless business details are attended to, to our families and loved ones who understand our exuberance for all things Montesquieu, to our passionate wine brokers who connect so well with fellow wine lovers, to our talented managers who rally the troops, and to our fearless leaders who constantly push the envelope to bring us the very best—thank you!
Thank you to all our amazing winemakers, growers and buying team, all of whom are incredibly talented and totally devoted to excellence. We are honored to have world-renowed Stéphane Derenoncourt and kindred spirit Hélène Mingot as key members of our Montesquieu team—sourcing top wines from around the globe and making wines especially for our clients —we couldn’t be more fortunate! Stéphane and Hélène work closely with growers such as dynamo Phil Coturri (Charlie Smith, Oakville Ranch) to nurture our select Napa parcels to insure that we have only the very best fruit for our wines.
Thank you to Michel Rolland and his team, who not only have provided us with fabulous Rolland Collection wines but have collaborated with us to make a special range of wines especially for Montesquieu clients from some of Michel’s top vines, a great expression of our mutual spirit of adventure and pursuit of excellence!
Last but not least thank you to our community partners who inspire us to give back and to “think globally and act locally.” Here’s to wonderful organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters of San Diego County, Doc Hendley and his team at Wine to Water, and the Junior Seau Foundation. It is our pleasure to have such esteemed company as we work together for very worthwhile causes.
As we are nearing the end of another exciting and eventful year, we have so much to be thankful for and at the heart of it all, are fantastic people and relationships that we value and look forward to growing with for years to come! Cheers to all and enjoy the rest of the holiday season!
