Thank You for Your Hospitality


Thank You for Your Hospitality Summertime is the season of vacations, bbqs, dinner parties, and, of course, acting as host.  If you have hosted a party or been a guest in someone else’s home, you know how much planning and energy it requires.  Saying “thank you for your hospitality” is one of the most important things you can do to show your appreciation of your hosts’ efforts. How to Write a Thank You Note For Hospitality Your hosts were thoughtful enough to plan an event and invite  you, and also to make sure you were comfortable and had a good time.  The minimum you should do is send a thank you note as soon as your stay at their house or their event has ended. Your hospitality thank you note doesn’t have to be long or flowery, it simply needs to convey your gratitude. This is little bit of etiquette will go a long way with your hosts.  The basics for an effective hospitality thank you note include not only writing your thanks, but even adding a short sentence regard

How Do You Take Care of Your Customers?


How Do You Take Care of Your Customers? Every day should be customer appreciation day It really should. Having appreciation for your customers  is only the first step, though. Expressing that appreciation is tantamount, especially if you can do so in such a way that your customers will be reminded of that appreciation every day.  This may seem like a daunting or even impossible challenge, but here at the Barn, we have plenty of ways to achieve this.   The gift you give says a great deal to the recipient about your esteem for them.  The beauty and elegance of hand-picked and arranged fresh-cut flowers, delivered with the charm of a French Bucket Style vase, can be matched with the locally grown and bottled varietal wines from our farm’s vineyard. Savoring wine on the palate and a floral arrangement’s palette can be a synergistic experience that leaves your customer with an enduring sense of your appreciation. The wines we offer are made using small-batch production and fill the f

Wine Enthusiast Awards our Chardonnay a 91!


Wine Enthusiast Awards our Chardonnay a 91! Good news from the Barn Vineyard yet again! Our 2014 Chardonnay just earned itself a score of 91 from Wine Enthusiast!  Our wine rating and review will appear in their online wine database in September.   What Wine Ratings Mean Before the 1980s, most wine criticism took place by those who produced or sold wine–this clear conflict of interest didn’t always provide the best wine information for consumers.  That all changed when writer and consumer advocate, Robert Parker, came on the scene.  Aside from being today’s most recognized wine critic, it was Parker’s 100-point rating system which became the standard by which other critics rate wine, including the publication, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, which was founded in 1988, just in time for the new standardized rating scale. The wine scoring system (aka the Parker Scale) rates different aspects of a varietal, breaking down the scoring to appearance, aroma, flavor, mouthfeel, and overal

Celebrate American Flowers Week!


Celebrate American Flowers Week! You’ve heard of farm-to-table, but have you heard of field-to-vase?  That is the essence of American Flowers Week – which happens every year from June 28th through July 4th.  AFW is a celebration of American grown flowers and the farmers who cultivate them, like us here at Stargazer Barn.  Knowing that your flowers are grown in America (which helps both our economy and the freshness and durability of your flowers)  is a potent reassurance at time of purchase.  Even better when you know the farm fresh flowers you order come directly from the people who grow them — we don’t source our flowers from other farms, states, or countries — we grow them, from seed and from bulb, in our own backyard.    Enjoying a colorful variety of farm-fresh American grown flowers in original, creative arrangements is just the beginning of the American Grown experience. Why not celebrate this week with something that pleases the palate as well as the eye and nose?

LA Hybrid : The Perfect Hypoallergenic Flower


LA Hybrid : The Perfect Hypoallergenic Flower LA Hybrids – the name may conjure up visions of elegant-casual (red carpet meets boardwalk), but this LA represents Longiflorum and Asiatic.  These two primary categories of lilies have been hybridized to create elegant-casual flowers in a wide array of colors which have larger blossoms, stronger stems, and longer vase life than their non-hybridized counterparts. LA Hybrid lilies have the added benefit of being pollen-free, making them an ideal choice for any hypoallergenic environment. Even if an allergic reaction is not a concern in your home or office, the elimination of fragrance can actually enhance your appreciation of these particular blooms. You can display LA Hybrids wherever you please and without worrying that you’re adding to a perfect storm of environmental scents (from a coworker’s cologne or perfume to the cooking aromas of a kitchen to the essential oils in your living room.  LA Hybrids add lively beauty and natural charm
