Why the Wine Industry “Gets” Thanksgiving
11.19.2018  |  by The Copper Peak Team

If anyone knows the true meaning of Thanksgiving, it would be the people in the wine industry.

Giving thanks, believe it or not, is about growing and nurturing something.

And it is desperately clear that the world needs more of that nurturing, from everybody, no matter their situation.

Watching the news, it’s easy to find things about which to be concerned. Fires and shootings. Political divisions. Uncertainty in every walk of life.

This is all the more reason why we think the Thanksgiving Holiday is so important. For a brief moment, we can step back and focus on the positive events, people, and circumstances encountered over the year – and so remember how best to nurture and tend to those good things in our lives.

Asking around, we’ve found that most of these positive things are actually people. Folks like friends, and family, and the wonderful people we work with. That also includes our awesome clients, the strategic partners who work tirelessly for us, and all of their supportive friends and family too. In fact, we’ve found, time again, that people are the real secret to winery success.

So, thank you. Thank you for being in Copper Peak’s orbit this past year, and for continuing the relationship. We look forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2019 with you.

To close, we’d like to share some of our favorite quotes about being thankfulness, work/life balance, and of course, the comforts of wine. May they inspire you this Thanksgiving Season:

“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls—family, health, friends, integrity—are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.” – Gary Keller, founder of Keller Williams Realty International

“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.” – Dolly Parton. Remember, if you kick back every once in a while to remember why you do this, customers will too!

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Happiness comes from living as you need to, as you want to. As your inner voice tells you to. Happiness comes from being who you actually are instead of who you think you are supposed to be.” – Shonda Rhimes

“The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.” – Michael Josephson, law professor and ethicist

“Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.” –Paul Coelho, in his novel Brida.
