Summer has been ticking right along, and here at Uncorked Tours we've been working on a couple of major projects that have taken a lot of time.
Starting in September, the focus of this blog will be shifting slightly to include stories of some of the staycations and day trips that abound in NB. In between tour dates, I've been making an effort to be a "tourist at home" and have visited the Fundy Trail, Campobello Island, the Festival of Flavour, Chocolatefest and the Winegarden Winefest. These were all fun, inexpensive and awesome activities that I had never done before, stay tuned for photos over the coming months.
The second big project has already been a source of some press. Uncorked Tours has taken over the operation of Barbour's General Store in Uptown Saint John. We have created a Saint John Tour Desk, for visitors and locals to learn about things to do in Saint John and purchase tours offered by six different operators in the city.
There is also some great local retail including Ganong candy, Barbour's teas, Big Tide merchandise, fabulous graphic Saint John T-shirts and other goodies. We have added "The Exchange", a self-serve coffee and tea bar in the back of The Store, serving Java Moose coffee and King Cole tea.
I hope you'll join us for the Grand Re-opening on Saturday, August 22nd. The doors open at 9am.
At Uncorked Tours we're all about sharing the fabulous wine, beer and spirits being produced in the Province of New Brunswick.
It is my pleasure to share with you the great food and drink being produced here in NB, as well as the awesome experiences you can have while living here or visiting the province.
May you always have good wine in your glass and friends to share it with.
