This time on “Fairfax Fridays,” we decided to stop in at Total Wine and talk with assistant manager Kathleen Scott about what makes their store unique and how they can help you celebrate this holiday season.
According to Kathleen, Total Wine’s best quality is their knowledgeable staff. Not everybody is totally comfortable when it comes to making wine choices, but they’re always able to assist people with their questions.
Kathleen also says Total Wine has the best selection and best pricing of any store in the area. They offer product knowledge classes throughout the year which you can sign up for, along with weekly wine tastings on Fridays and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
If you’re hosting a party this holiday season, Kathleen has a couple useful tips for you.
"Total Wine has the best selection and best pricing of any store in the area."
First, keep your wine selection simple—try for a crowd-pleasing red and a crowd-pleasing white. A good example for red wines would be a Pinot Noir because it goes well with any type of food. For white wines, you can try a Riesling or a Prosecco.
Also, allow your wine enough time to breathe. To do this, you can use a regular decanter or a decanter with an aerator attached to it to save time.
Lastly, as an added bonus, if you walk into the Total Wine located in Greenbriar Shopping Center and say the words “Get Keyed Up,” you’ll earn a free gift.
We want to thank Kathleen for allowing us to stop in and visit with her. If you have any questions for us, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We’d love to speak with you.
