Sneak Peak with Donati

News Release: Monday, March 21, 2022

About: Sneak Peak with Donati at Newly Renovated MetroWines

Join us on Friday, May 6th from 5:00 to 6:30 for a wine tasting with Adam Chesia of Donati Family Vineyard and Juniper Cooper of Johnson Brothers /Mutual Distribution to celebrate the renovation of MetroWines on Charlotte Street. MetroWines continues to offer Sisters Forever Chardonnay, Claret and Cabernet Sauvignon from Donati Family Vineyard and the popularity and customer support for these wines has never stopped!

Since opening the doors in 2013, MetroWines has held to the philosophy that wine is about food, family, friends and community. "Over the years, we have become friends and family with our customers and sought to benefit the community through service, employment and support," says John Kerr, co-owner of MetroWines. "But that's not all of the story!"

MetroWines has also established strong relationships with wineries. The retailer sits in the middle of the process selecting wines from various wineries for their customers. "So, to celebrate this new beginning made possible by our customers, we have asked Adam Chesia, East Coast Sales Manager for Donati Family Vineyard, to join us, to pour their wines, to tell their family story." 

"And it's not just about buying and selling," says Kerr. "When COVID struck, Donati sent us a case of hand sanitizers! Now that's family."  

Family owned since 1989, Donati tells an American Wine Story from its founding by Italian immigrants through to being one of the first wineries with national distribution to trust their business to women winemakers!
