The 12 Wines of Christmas: Gifts for the wine lovers on your list - Greenville NewsTuesday, December 15, 2015
David Williams’ recommendationsTwo wines from Washington state — a favorite region of Williams — join wines from California and France. All would make excellent gifts, he said.2014 Tamarack Cellars chardonnay ($19)This Washington state winery is known for producing great wines. Here, expect flavors of apple, butterscotch, pear and macadamia nuts. A rich finish is balanced with crisp acidity.“It is aged in oak, but the oak is very, very subtle,” Williams said. “You can taste the oak, but it’s miles away from that ‘in your face’ oak.”2013 Definitive pinot noir ($24)Definitive was created by Ken and Teresa Bernards, the owners and winemakers at Ancien. It’s a lower-cost option that is made to a high standard of quality, Williams said.“Being a Russian River Valley pinot, it’s bigger and fuller, and a little richer,” Williams said.2012 Powers Reserve Champoux Vineyards cabernet sauvignon ($33)The Champoux Vineyard in Washing... http://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/entertainment/2015/12/15/12-wines-christmas-gifts-greenville-wine-lovers/77357948/

Florists keep busy during pandemic | News, Sports, Jobs - Minot Daily NewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
Chrest said.Chrest said although the position can be demanding, one of her most meaningful goals as a florist is to make each customer smile.“It’s a lot of hard work, especially during those extremely long days; But the results achieved at the end of the day are advantageous,” she said.The same went for Niki Nygaard of Flower Central in Minot as her business has been busy during the pandemic since people are steadily sending flowers and plants to their loved ones. “During the week of Mother’s Day, I stood on my feet for over 80 hours designing flowers,” said Nygaard. “Being a florist is fun as it keeps you busy, but it’s very demanding as the holidays are crazy.”When operating during non-holidays, Flower Central regularly staffs nine employees. During holidays Nygaard said she fluctuates due to high demand. To meet the needs of the customers, she employs 16 workers to have more hands available for deliveries and curbside assistance. For example, in the week of Mother’s Day, she had six vans running concurrently each day to help deliver to customers.Following strict guidelines during the pandemic, Flower Center has limited the shop to two to three customers inside at a time. Upon arrival, if customers decline curbside assistance, they are offered rubber gloves or hand sanitizer before entering the shop.“We have to change how we do things now and then,” said Nygaard. “Like when we hand out deliveries, we call ahead to have the customers meet us at the door. We set down the order on their doorstep, so there’s no hand-to-hand contact.”Flower Centrals’ hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 5 p.m.Flower Central, Peony Petals Floral & Gifts and Perfect Petals are gearing up for Memorial Day and the festivities of graduations. Each shop is up and running and ready to deliver special requests for the desired families.
