Home for the HolidaysThere’s no place like home for the holidays. But for those of us who’ve lived away from home for many years, there’s holiday travel to consider: weather, delays, and cramped compartments and cranky travelers carrying bulky coats, bags, and gifts. Upon arrival and hugs and kisses, it dawns on you that you could really go for some hot food, a good drink, continued company with the ones you love, and of course, you need to unload all the stuff you’re carrying. Söntés is calling.

Check your coat at the door, along with the scarf and the gloves. There are fireplaces to toss off the winter chill. Check your boots if you like, and put on the indoor shoes you’re carrying in that extra bag. Check the extra bag, too. Relax and unwind, knowing you don’t have to brave Aunt Elsie’s pot roast for the third day and the suspect deviled eggs, and you don’t have to worry about washing all the dishes and trying to get the spots out of the good cloth napkins. Did you forget to get a gift for that person who has everything? Glance around: the one-of-a-kind artwork on the walls is all for sale. Where else could you shop with a glass of wine in your hand?

This holiday season, enjoy getting together with friends, family, and coworkers-turned-second-family over amazing local food where there’s something for every picky taste. Enjoy conversation while passing dishes like empanadas, chorizo dates, and gourmet cheeses back and forth before diving into lamb as you’re offered a bite of perfectly cooked scallops from the left and a bite of savory local duck breast from the right.

It’s all these little things that Söntés does so well, like offering a complimentary coat closet, a fireplace atmosphere, a knowledgeable staff to pair your wine and take care of all the details so you can let go of holiday stress and enjoy the company around you to the fullest.

This season, come home to Söntés.

Reminder: Please join us this Saturday from 11-2 for our annual Holiday Wine & Spirits Tasting and Sale! Find the perfect complement for your holiday feasts with the help of our sommelier. No need to order, take the wine home with you that same day!
