Greetings from SXSW Wine Interactive

Dear Friends & Customers,

I would like to thank you for your support and your business. As the CEO, Founder I am a very hands on person with each customer so I would like to prelude this month's newsletter by saying that Personal Wine is a custom, luxury business and we aim to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.

We bring trusted premium brands to you which you can personalize using a custom label or engraving. Wineries like Tenuta Oreno, Gargiulo, Vilafonte, Constant, Flora Springs and Trocard have been critically acclaimed, award-winning vineyards having scored 90+ points by Robert Parker and Wine Spectator. Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno even scored in the Top 100 by Wine Spectator of 2008.

This week we celebrate another great event. After many years, we have opened our first wine tasting room in Austin, TX with future plans to open in NYC, Los Angeles and abroad. Our Red Room is located approximately 30 yards from the Austin Convention Center. The purpose of the Red Room is to educate people about wine in hopes that people further develop their palates.

This week we will try three excercises which we will demonstrate at the South by Southwest Convention in Austin. It starts on the 11th and runs thru the 15th. At the booth we will direct traffic to our Red Room location for the following schedule of events:
