Savour Wine and Cheese announced today that they will open their doors at 24 Washington Street in Gloucester, Massachusetts on June 30, at 10A.M., just in time for the Fourth of July weekend. The company’s highly-trained staff helps the customer navigate through a sea of wine and cheese options, insuring the “perfect fit” for everyone.
Savour has 20 different wines on five state-of-the-art wine dispensing kiosks from Napa Technology that “allow the customers to try before they buy,” says owner and operator Robert Morgan. Each is controlled by smart cards that allow customers up to 10 half-ounce tastes. “These machines are the only ones on the North Shore,” says Morgan, “and allow the customer to compare different styles in a range of prices.”
Kathleen Erickson, “The Wine PhD,” is the co-owner and resident wine expert. “Our goal is to introduce the community to an extensive variety of hard to find, unique, small-production wines at a great value,” Erickson says. She is certified sommelier with a highly educated palate allowing her to relate easily to a wide variety of wine preferences. “A good sommelier is like a coach,” says Erickson, “she has to be able to scout out good wines and match them with the buyer’s individual taste.”
Krista Julian is Savour’s “Cheese Wiz.” Julian is a trained chef who interned at the highly respected Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Julian concentrates on specialty cheeses and meats, complimenting the wine expertise at Savour.
Savour invites the community to come in and try the new sampling kiosks and our unique selection of wines, cheeses, and specialty foods such as Trupiano sausage and homemade pastas. Savour is open seven days a week allowing everyone to try before you buy.
