Welcome to “Cyrano Friends”


Greetings and welcome to your official blog site, Cyrano friend.

It was Tisha Samson who first started using the name “Cyrano friends” to identify all the folks who have staked their claim to our wine shop. It later acquired special meaning thanks to her mom, who innocently called our place Cheers after observing that, around here, everyone seems to know your name.


But who exactly are you, Cyrano friends? Quite a diverse, cosmoploitan collection of folks, it turns out, all of you so different in age and profession and yet so connected by the same passion for wine and living. Hence this blog/newsletter, which we hope will further our togetherness by keeping everyone up-to-date on anything and everything that goes on in your favorite wine shop.

So go ahead. Drink wine and uncork the romantic hero inside you whenever you’re here.
