After the glowing review of Carpe Vino was published in the new “Feast” section of the Sacramento Bee, we were deluged with well wishes from our customers. We heard from Wine Club members, regulars and newbies, and everyone was delighted with the review, especially the praise heaped on Chef Eric Alexander. Here’s a sampling:
“Congratulations Eric Alexander, Gary Moffat, Drew Moffat, Benjamin Durham, Ada Campos-Sutcliffe, Paul Roosen, Brittany, Beth White, Jana Shepherd, Jana Kosmata, and Steve Varno! I am so proud of my time spent with you at Carpe Vino. For my Sacramento friends, if you haven’t made the trip up to Auburn for dinner here, you’re missing out.” –Former staffer and now legislative aide, Allison Wescott
“Awesome feature in Sac Bee Feast! Eric looks so-o-o serious! ;-)” –Pam Money
“It was indeed a very nice review. We continue to be very happy that we have Carpe Vino in Auburn. We’re saving a copy of the review to share with friends as appropriate. Congratulations to all… –Pat and John Robertson
“Congratulations Gary and crew! I saw the write up in the Bee and will admit that my first reaction was selfish. Oh no…the secret is out! Kudos to you for running a class act operation.” Jon & Kelli Rosdall
“READ it. And of course I could have written it too. I saw Eric with Drew and bowed in kudos and said ‘What he said and more.’ Oh y’all have done such a creative and wonderful thing, titillating and tantalizing our taste buds and teaching us how it could and should be done. Congratulations and above all, thank you.” –Horti Davis
Our thanks to everyone, and we’ll do our best to stay on our roll. Now we gotta get back to work!
