I hate shopping! The crowds! Finding parking and walking up and down aisles looking for someone to help you. It is every guy’s nightmare.
That all changed last year when I stopped by to pick up a bottle of wine during the annual Don Quijote Import Christmas Sale. What I thought was a quick stop turned out to be an epic journey in fun.
Don Quijote Open House
- CHRISTMAS SALE
- Sunday, November 29th, 12-4
- Wine & Food Samples!
The stories that come with the wine & cheese help make this the best shopping experience ever!
Christmas shopping at don Quijote starts with a few samples of wine and cheese. It’s not enough to just try the wine and cheese when Chef Carlos helps you. You get a story! The Chef’s passion for wine and cheese is exemplified in his knowledge and skills in story telling.
You’ll also learn how each region of Spain has it’s own traditions and cultures that helped develop the cheese and wine pairings. You’ll discover in Spain, you don’t order wine by the grape, it’s ordered by the region. Of course, every region has a story….and every story has a region.
Once you’ve tried a few wines and explored the Spanish Wine Regions, you’ll try a few different olive varieties. I learned that many of the olive trees go way back…. way, way, way back! Some before Christ!
From wine to olive oil… you’ll discover the best Christmas gifts at Don Quijote
The different olive oils come with a story too. Some are made for drizzling on bread, while others are mission critical for the best cuisine. You’ll even learn how to decide which extra-virgin olive oils are worth buying.
According to Chef Carlos, God loves the Spanish and made the perfect factors for producing the world’s best olive oils and wines.
Then there is the chocolate and candy. I bet you didn’t know how much better chocolate tastes when it’s served with a little Port. Of course, the Don Quijote Port is mixed in the famous Don Quijote wine cellar. The adventure never ends when you shop for Christmas gifts at Don Quijote.
My best shopping experience ever! It’s this Sunday at Don Quijote Restaurante & Imports from 12-4. But don’t be in a hurry! You won’t want to leave!
Here are some of my favorite gift ideas from last year…. best of all, people thanked me later for the thoughtful gifts!
