‘Tis the season for holiday drinks and cocktail parties and our love for shopping local doesn’t stop when it comes to beer, wine and spirits. Cape Cod Package Store, located on Rt. 28 in Centerville was one the first liquor licenses to be issued in the Town of Barnstable after the repeal of prohibition. Originally located on Main Street, Cape Cod Package Store opened in 1939 by the Pendergast family and is now run by third generation daughters, Andrea Pendergast, Danette Atsalis and Terri Anne Haidinger.
Year-round you can expect exciting in-store events and tastings or find their friendly staff popped up at numerous community events and wine dinners. Their wine section and tasting room is wildly impressive, with wine manager Diane Slater at the helm with a kind smile and a wealth of knowledge. Don’t know what you like? Spend the afternoon tasting from their state-of-the-art wine dispensers.
This month keep an eye on their online countdown of the #12drinksofchristmas and check out their Holiday Sparkling Wine Tasting on December 13th and sip bubbles from around the world, including an array of Sparkling Wine, Prosecco, Cava and grower’s Champagnes.
Don’t forget to visit your favorite locally-owned package store for your holiday beverage needs this season. Cheers!
