Dear Reader,

Hours are 10 AM to 8 PM through the end of the year! We will close at 8 PM Friday, New Year’s Eve and will be closed on New Year’s Day! NO TASTING THIS WEEKEND!

We Are Having Our Own Tea Party!

20% Off with Cash or Check! 15% Off with Credit Cards! Bottle One!

Due to a crazed law in Georgia, we will be holding an “Inventory Reduction Sale” the rest of the year! This will be a 3 day sale and will not be extended after the end of the year. We only had a sale like this two times in our 5 year history!

Georgia is the only state in the southeast and one of less than ten that continues to levy an ad valorem tax on inventory. The inventory tax hits retailers particularly hard for many reasons. The inventory tax must be paid without regard to profitability; discriminates irrationally and does not affect all businesses in an equal manner; and, it often encourages businesses to house inventory outside the state where the inventory tax can be avoided. Georgia Retail Association believes that consideration should be given to exempting business inventory from ad valorem taxation, or at the very least steps should be taken to begin a phase out or scaling back of this discriminating, regressive tax.

According to Mr. Heavener of the Georgia Retail Association, less than 10 states nationwide have inventory taxes, and for good reason. Nearly all states have eliminated this obnoxious levy, which poisons business growth, destroys jobs and unfairly soaks the private sector. Georgia, unfortunately, has not. Besides Georgia, the only other state in the South that imposes it is Mississippi.

Georgia must find a way to cut this tax leech out of the picture and improve conditions for business. Until it does, the state is cutting its own throat.

They say Rog, don’t rock the boat, keep your head down, don’t bite the hand that feeds you, but this tax is not paid by The Vineyard; it’s paid by you in higher prices. It’s paid by you in lost business and jobs. So let have a Tea Party the next three days!

Here is how it will work! 20% off with cash or check! 15% off with credit cards! Bottle one! Buy one bottle or 100! You get the discount! On any bottles with 20% already off the price you will get another 5% off!

Christmas items will be 30% off!

Christmas Beers and other beers will be 10% off!

All Accesories will be 30% off! Vinturi, Stemware, Cheese boards, Coolers and 50% off Wine Books!

Come Early For The Best Bargins!
