Hi Wine Lover,

The Shall We Wine team is excited to share our monthly newsletter. Our goal is to introduce you to our favorite wines, winemakers, varietals, wine regions and places to buy and drink wine.


The Shall We Wine Team



In an effort to maintain social distancing measures, Shall We Wine will continue to devote our time to connecting with each and every one of our friends and supporters like you virtually. We're constantly sharing fun content to help brighten up your weeks!

While Shall We Wine continues to navigate the evolving circumstances surrounding COVID-19, adjustments had to be made to our operations as most of you know. Like many other businesses in our communities, it keeps a few things at a standstill but we’re powering through it! These changes, while temporary, make this time challenging, but all were important to not only support national, state, and local public health directions, but in order to look out for your safety as a consumer.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work through these times together. Thank you for your continued support in making Shall We Wine your go-to wine & lifestyle resource.

Just because we might be spending more of our time in front of a computer/phone screen instead of in-person, doesn’t mean comradery goes out the window. It means we need each other more than ever… to support, to maneuver, to find ways to still share a drink with one another in style!




Come hang out with us!

( Register for one or all our virtual events via Instagram )

Not only is this an awesome way to learn something new, but a way to stay connected and have fun doing it, too. Can't wait to see you! Cheers.

4/17 - Sangria and Appetizers with Ariel Neal and Chef Brad Anderson
4/24 - Rum cocktails with Tiburon Rum, featuring Chef Marwin Brown of FoodFidelity

If you were unable to join us for any of our past events, please consider supporting any of these brands by buying their products next time you order from your local liquor store. These were the most recent virtual hours Shall We Wine has hosted and who we hosted them with:

As you know, the restaurant industry is taking a huge hit at this time. Take a pledge with Shall We Wine to help restaurants and individuals [pour] it forward! There is something we each can do, no matter how large or small it might seem. There are several organizations putting together great resources. Beware of scammers during these vulnerable times though! Make sure you're giving or applying to reputable aids. #toosmalltofail #savehospitality



Take the pledge and influence change! Please take the time to sign this petition: Relief Opportunities For All Restaurants (ROAR). Make a donation to help uplift our service industry during these unprecedented times.



Participated in a #whatsbeco project along with others in the industry, explaining how COVID-19 is impacting the restaurant and hospitality industry as a whole.

April is National Poetry Month!

Take some time to think about and celebrate how much poetry infiltrates your day, even though you may not think it does. Poetry is an art-form, embedded in the aisles of a bookstore, on the lips of a poet and their readers, the start of some great love stories, behind the genius of catchy advertisements, the backbone to what can make song lyrics pop.

Recently hosted a virtual poetry reading in honor of the occasion with Alisha Sommer (Poet, Storyteller, Photographer) and Brenda Cardenas (Poet & Author of Boomerang)! This was fun and our next one will be Sunday, May 3, 2020. Follow @RegineTRousseauon Instagram for details.


For yourself or as a gift... it's one way you can support us!

As both a sommelier and poet, I see wine elevated by words and vice versa. On the surface, wine and poetry can seem unrelated. Searching for Cloves & Lilies: The Wine Edition is one way of showing the congruence of the two. Seemingly different mediums can be more intertwined than you think. Challenge yourself to see likeness, positivity and common ground.

A collection of original poems from Regine T. Rousseau, the book Searching for Cloves and Lilies: The Wine Edition explores pairing wine with poetry. The idea of pairing both wine and poetry was initially met with confused looks. But a national book tour and some new friends later, the Shall We Wine tribe has expanded into a think-outside-the-box wine pairing bunch!

How amazing. We love wine, pass it on!
