Showing appreciation to our clients is important in my line of work. One of the biggest elements that sets us apart from our competition is
customer service. I rely on Dreadnought Wines for all of my giving needs. Whether it is just a single bottle of wine and chocolates or a large gift
basket, their product always has the “wow” factor! I used to send out thank you cards to my clients with gift cards to upscale restaurants and
never received much feedback in return. Since I have been using Dreadnought Wines, the difference is night and day! I get emails or phone
calls almost immediately after a client receives his or her gift to tell me how wonderful it was! - Brianna Casciola, Skyward Aviation
ultimate fruit basket
This classic sentiment delivers an array of seasonally fresh fruits,
gourmet goodies, and cookies. The bottle of boutique Rock River
Chardonnay is the ideal partner. As shown $100. Fruit baskets
start at $50.
Scarbolo produces such wonderful Italian wines that we have to
offer three different collections. Ramato X is a Pinot Grigio made in
the traditional style so it has deeper flavor and is the beautiful color
of copper. The Viotto is made from Merlot grapes, half of which are
dried like the grapes of Amarone. My Time is a delicious blend of
white grapes which gets rave reviews every time we serve it. Along
with these are a couple of classics: the Merlot and Refusco.
The Complete Collection $182. The 2 Bottle Collection (Ramato and
Viotto) $67. The 3 Bottle Collection (Merlot, Fruliano, Refusco) $80.
What better way to say “hey” than with a bottle of
smooth Chardonnay, Tate’s cookies, white cheddar
and peppercorn biscuits, and two bags of gourmet
flavored popcorn. Tasty giving indeed! $59.

As 2011 closes, we look forward to 2012. Once again we
are grateful for your patronage throughout this past year.
Your support allowed us to build a classroom within our
retail location, and expand our wine selections. Items like
half bottles of Barolo have brought much excitement to our
list and created my new mantra: “Barolo for Breakfast”!
Mike and I continue to study and practice our skills with
a new group of wine professionals here in Pittsburgh that
blind tastes wines every month, and we take new wine
courses so that we can expand and intensify the classes
that we schedule for you.
This coming year will bring the challenge of developing a
new website to combine our two current sites. It is our goal
to vastly improve the functionality of the wine list, and to
bring you more information on a timely basis. More wine
events and classes will be added to the calendar in 2012
and our delivery service will expand. (Watch for our trucks
out and about the streets of Pittsburgh) As always we are
on the hunt for new, fun and functional items for our retail
store, which celebrated its 19th anniversary this year.
2012 will no doubt bring new challenges, but Dreadnought
was started and has grown because of confronted
adversity. We look forward to growth so that we can bring
you more exciting wines from around the world, and
deliver exciting ways to enjoy them. Sign up for our email
newsletter to keep up with our progress.
We salute our small wineries, our suppliers and YOU, our
customers, for allowing us to make a living doing what we
love most. We couldn’t do this without you.
Sipping through the year!!
Deb and Mike
People always ask me, “what do you like to drink?” So here
is the shortest version of an answer I could come up with. I
wax on and on about all of our wines and I like them for many
different reasons. But on the day of the photo shoot this is the
selection I was in the mood for. If you want another selection,
with more reds? More whites? Different price point? Well, that
is what we do here. We will find a selection that fits your style
and budget. Just give us a call and we’ll create your personal,
Deb’s choices are: Clos Teddi Patrimonio Vermentinu, Eberle
Viognier, Louis Dry Riesling, LaSpinetta Borolo (1/2 bottle), and
Yorkville Cabernet Franc. As shown $158.

person who has everything.

or the pairing of wines with foods and cheeses, recipients
and their guests are treated to an entertaining and knowledge

The gift designers at Dreadnought Wines have a
passion for creating Custom Gifts. Learning about
the recipient and creating an innovative design that
will perfectly compliment their individual tastes is a
rewarding challenge. And staying within the client’s
budget is a satisfying test.

custom designs as the gifts from these pages

often want to personalize their gift specifically to
a recipients taste, or they want a $500.00 gift to
really express their gratitude. Some clients wish

grape blends or a particular varietal, or satisfy
their sweet tooth or passion for salty snacks.
