What's Happening at Suhru this June
Hello Suhru family! You may notice that I am not in the Tasting House as often as I've been in the past, a few changes are happening at Suhru. We have an incredible staff, managed by Shelby, as well as our new Assistant Tasting Room Manager Shannon, which has allowed me to refocus my efforts recently. I will be focusing more of my time over the coming months and years on Wholesale Outreach and Farmer’s Markets. But don't worry, you will still see me at the Tasting House from time to time!
This summer you can find me at a number of Farmer's Markets, including the Three Village Farmer’s Market, located at 93 North Country Road in Setauket every other Friday from 3–7 pm and at the Havens Farmers Market at the Shelter Island Historical Society every other Saturday from 9am–12:30 pm. Checkout Sue's Farmer's Market schedule
They are both great markets with about 25 Vendors each with some awesome offerings. It’s been fun introducing our wines to a new audience farther afield from the Tasting House. I have been doing Farmer's Markets for Suhru since we first opened in 2008 and it has been so nice to get to connect with people at these new venues. Over the last few weeks several Wine Club Members have stopped by my table. It’s always nice to see a familiar face, so please stop by and say hello!
In addition to Farmer's Markets I have also been working more closely with our Distributor, Vias Imports, Ltd to expand the accessibility of Suhru Wines in wine shops and restaurants across New York and New Jersey. In addition to focusing on expanding placements on Long Island, I spent some time working with our sales rep Sarah in New York City earlier this month and will be working with Joe in New Jersey in July.
We are ever expanding the list of Where to Find our Wines on our website. However a few recent additions of late include:
- Lucha Cubano, located at 87 E Main St in Downtown Riverhead, NY
- Sound Avenue Bistro, located at 3225 Sound Avenue in Riverhead, NY
- Blue Point Spirits, located at 226 Blue Point Avenue in Blue Point, NY
- Page at 63 Main, located at 63 Main Street in Sag Harbor, NY
- North Fork Wines and Spirits, located at 122 South Street in Greenport, NY
- Finest Kind Wines and Liquors, located at 552 W Lake Drive in Montauk
One of the things I do to support new Wine Shops is schedule in-store Tastings. I will be at Finest Kind Wines and Liquors – 552 W Lake Dr in Montauk, NY sampling our Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Riesling Rose and Cabernet Franc on Saturday June 25th from 4–7 pm. If you're in the Montauk area, please come and say hello!
If you'd like to see Suhru Wines in your local wine shop or favorite restaurant please ask them to carry it and let me know by sending an email at email@example.com so I can follow up and schedule a tasting. Some of my best wholesale relationships have begun with a recommendation from one of our regular guests. I look forward to sharing more with you about where I’ve been and new placements next month. Cheers!
