As many of you probably know, I am a customer of boutique and family-owned wineries as well as local wine shops and stores. If you feel the same as me, then I encourage you to visit Small Business Saturday by American Express®. Register your American Express cards for your statement credit, search to find out which of your favorite wineries and wine businesses are participating, then shop! Show your support of wine business entrepreneurs. Cheers!
