HOW DID THIS HAPPEN!?! 2023 was soooo fast, how can it be middle of December already?
Um, yeah, well… we have devoted every single waking hour to Smith Story Wine Cellars. Not unlike years 1-9 for us, but making up for some unimaginable challenges over the past few years for sure.
As small business owners, it's tough out here, maybe tougher than ever before due to more things than we care to list.
The fascinating news is, we have hit an all-time sales revenue record for our small but might winery. It's been a complete battle zone in wine wholesale and just when we had the most ever new Storytellers join us in one year, we had the most leave/skip the club too. Our biggest increase has been tasting room visits and guests who placed over three online orders throughout the year. The best part of the 2023… there are many, we're working on narrowing down a Top 12 list.
2024 oh you are going to be filled with so many new adventures for Smith Story Wine Cellars, we are ready!
2023 has been BANANAS! Bananas are delicious and good for you, we'll take it!
