10 Years Today!

So ten years ago today I opened the doors to Barrica Wines.

To say it’s been an “interesting” journey would be an understatement!
I’ve had some fabulous highs – won awards for just “doing what we do”, experienced some amazing visits and made some fantastic friends, whether customers or suppliers, or members of the team, past and present, in the shop and behind the scenes.

But there have been some difficult times too. Times when you find out exactly who those true friends are, and those who suddenly disappear when you have outlived your usefulness.

To those who have stuck by me, encouraged me and given me the motivation to carry on and battle through the hard times, a massive thank you! You have absolutely NO idea how much your support and friendship has meant. My family have been my rock, and I love you for it.

I’ve always said that if you love what you do, you never do a day’s work in your life – WRONG! I’ve had sleepless nights, difficult conversations and major stress-outs. I’ve never worked as hard as I have since opening, but would I change it? Nah!

Thanking you in anticipation of your continuing support and here’s to the future.

Now where’s that corkscrew?!

Best Wishes, Jane
