Nectar Spokane Wine Events June 2011
Thank you for making May our most successful month yet. Strong sales accompanies by a flurry of private event rentals made for a very exciting month. I appreciate all of your efforts to spread the word about the five amazing wineries that we have in our space. As the weather slowly warms up, we continue to move ahead with several exciting new products and activities. Be on the lookout for outdoor patio seating at Nectar. We’ve submitted plans to the city and the liquor control board for 20 seats on the Main Street side of Nectar. We’re hoping for a late June addition to the space!
