Thank you to each and every customer of Wine Central. This is the most fun I have ever had working – in fact, you can’t call it work – it’s fun. I have enjoyed making wine with you over the last few years, and am happy to pass Wine Central on to good hands. Cosette will look after Wine Central and each of you just as I have. Rod, Maria, Sara and Brittney will be here, so there won’t be any change in service or quality, and the fun factor will remain. I’ll be involved with Wine Central on an advisory basis over the next year to help Cosette feel comfortable. I know you will enjoy meeting her.
I’m on to my next adventure! Jim and I are building our cottage at Gull Lake, Alberta. We want to be closer to our daughters, who both live in Edmonton and have no intention of leaving. If there are going to be grandchildren, we want to be part of their lives. It’s all about family. I hope my golf game will improve, and Jim and I will do a little travelling. Our home won’t be ready until late fall, so we’ll enjoy the best of another Okanagan summer.
Thank you so much for a wonderful time, and for helping us to create the best winemaking business in the Okanagan.
