Say Cheers in 50 Different Languages

We’re off to a great start with Noteworthy Wines.

We have our first producer signed up – Tenuta Le Velette in Orvieto, Italy – and we expect our first shipment of tasting samples in July.

There are also a tonne of other activities in the works, so stay tuned for more as we kick things into gear.

However, a lot of that will have to wait!

Until then, let’s start things off properly:  exploring at least 50 ways to say “cheers”.
