With so many exciting things happening here at Ken & Norm’s this week, we’ll need some extra space to fill you in on all the details! Keep Reading…
Meet the Team Part 4.
The final member of our team that we are featuring here on our site is the most important: your store manager, Sergey, and he really needs no introduction. You’ll most often find him in his office answering emails, making arrangements with distributors, or having a snack. We asked him a few basic questions so his quiet countenance won’t have you thinking he’s unapproachable:
A: That’s easy!! Football!! Not that crazy game you have here, REAL Football as in Soccer!! I love the World Cup and am rooting for Holland team. I try to play every Sunday.
Q: If you could pick one item in the shop over everything else, what would it be?
A: That question is a loaded one! Everyone knows my favorite item in the store isn’t on any shelf – its the person on the ladder, Kate. She’s my wife. I’d be sleeping on sofa if I didn’t say she was my favorite item! (Secretly, though, its Woodford Reserve Single Barrel Double Oak!!)
Q: When you’re not at the shop, how do you relax?
A: I play soccer. try new and different beer, snuggling with Kate and Lilu, and being a lab rat for Kate’s culinary experiments.
So that about wraps it up for the four major staff members here at Ken & Norm’s. The three cashiers taking care of you at checkout are: Dana, John, and Kevin. If you’ve already joined KN Members Club, ask one of them for your Members Card and show them your number before your purchase is scanned – you’ll earn points toward discount rewards!
Wine Release Alerts!!
We are thrilled to present several Special Edition Wines for your summer enjoyment:
From New Zealand’s famous Marlborough AVA comes this featured appellation held in reserve for five years! Luscious and full palate experience carries a racy acidity, plump passionfruit and mango flavors, and a bright finish.
Sug. Price: $29.99 Our Special Price: $12.99
Going deeper into the Marlborough AVA, deeper than a valley within, to a single vineyard, we discover this hidden vale of Taylor’s Pass. Only by keeping these beautiful grapes separate from all the rest can we best appreciate climate, soil, and the winemaker’s mastery! Soft and delicate on the palate with a gentle flavor of perfectly ripened gooseberry, a balanced acidity, and mouth-watering minerality only begins to speak to the essence of Taylor’s Pass Vineyards. Enjoy as a solo sipper, cold from the refrigerator to best take in its elegance.
Suggested Price: $29.99 Our Special Price: $12.99
Archery Summit Premier Cuvée Pinot Noir 2012
Where else would we find America’s best Pinot Noirs but Washington state’s famous Willamette Valley. A masterfully selected batch from each of Archery Summit’s six vineyards is harmoniously blended to give you a snapshot of their heart and soul. A brilliant pop of intense cranberry tartness is followed by a soothingly mellow mouthfeel that brings flavors of cocoa nib, cherry preserves, and a loving embrace of silky tannin.
Suggested Price: $49.99 Our Special Price: $29.99!!!!!
