- “We have wine with every dinner. For years I've been coming to Thirsty Vintner. Not only is the wine superb - beats any $20-$30 wine in the liquor store - but the staff are absolutely fantastic to work with.”– Bruce, Oct 2015
- “I have been bottling wine here for years, I think I have all the papers from the wine that I have made. Only thing I make about 7 batches at a time and they just seem to vanish. Hardest part is hauling them out of the car once I get home, as for bottling the wine all the staff are great .”– Verna Trace, Sep 2015

Richard, Alyson and all the great staff over the years continue to treat me well, know my wine preferences, and connect with me when there's something new they think I'll like.”– Monica, Nov 2015
