As some of you may know, I was part of the opening team here at FRESH. I was part of the chef team responsible for getting all that wonderful food ready everyday for the chef case, grill, grab & go, sandwich-taco bar, salad and dip bars, and catering. Well, once we were able to start selling beer and wine, I jumped at the chance to head up this new department for FRESH.
Being apart of Tyler’s premier beer and wine shop was an opportunity that could not be passed up. Our goal is to provide East Texas with the best beer and wine selection and service. We’ve assembled a team with a wealth of knowledge that puts service first and wants to continue to learn from our guests.
Rhonda Acquistapace-Breland, originally from Louisiana, comes from a grocery and wine family. She spent three years living in Italy while studying Italian grape varietals. Rhonda is happy to share her knowledge and can easily suggest a wine for your taste. Shannon Gonzales, a Tyler native, spent the last few years living and working in Austin where she fell in love with craft beer. Shannon will gladly help you find something you’ll enjoy.
If you have never tried wine we can help you find something that you will like. If you are a seasoned veteran and are tired of driving to Dallas, give us the chance to be your new wine shop. If you are a craft beer enthusiast, we are your place to shop. Come in and introduce yourself and tell us what you are trying to find.
Over the last few months I have really been putting our Twitter account to use. So, if you want to know that latest additions or long awaited returns to our shelves, Twitter is the place to be. So, follow us on Twitter @FreshiesTweet.
Keep checking this blog to stay informed on all things beer and wine at FRESH. We will discuss what’s new, and also, a little Beer & Wine 101, simple recipes and the drinks that pair well with them and maybe even some reviews of the beers and wines we have tasted.
Thank you for making FRESH you choice for beer and wine.
