Ask the Somm… A New Public Service from Bellflower

Nov 14, 2020

The really cool thing about having a restaurant like Bellflower in the neighborhood is that you no longer have to drive out to a chain store by the highway when you just feel like picking up a bottle of wine for dinner, or a few bottles for a gift or special occasion. And, more importantly, our being here means that you no longer have to buy wine on instinct, after a lot of wasted time spent wondering aimlessly down aisles, picking up bottles with interesting labels, and guessing what they might be like based on the company’s design aesthetic. You now have a real, local resource for great, affordable wine here in downtown Ypsi, and access to a professional, approachable and friendly sommelier in Bellflower’s Jennifer Lucier.

If you have any questions at all about the wine we carry at Bellflower, what foods they might best complement, or anything else related to our wine program, just reach out to Jenn by tweeting @JennTheSomm with the hashtag #AskTheSomm. And, once you and Jenn exchange notes, you can either walk down to Bellflower and pick a bottle up, or place an order on our online store, arranging a time for contactless pickup. It really couldn’t be any easier.

So, if you’re cooking something and you want a great wine to pair with it, or if you have a favorite wine and you want to find a new one that’s like it, all you have to do is text @JennTheSomm.

At the end of the day, I love wine, love talking about wine, and my biggest priority is to help other people find wine that makes them feel the same way.” -Jenn
