Daedalus Distributor Retreat Day 1: Arrival

For a handful of lucky sales reps, the past few days have been spent touring the vineyards that we source fruit from, picking Aron's brain about winemaking, and learning all about the history and philosophy behind Daedalus Cellars. 

Day 1:

Guests arrive from Washington, California, and Oregon, and we open up Daedalus library wines to enjoy with Morgan's incredible lamb & lentil stew. Aron discusses the differences in vintages with all of our guests up at the Maresh vineyard retreat where all stayed for the duration of the event.

  1. As a wine enthusiast, my travels have taken me to a wide variety of vineyards and wine areas of France and Italy, and of course to the wonderful gardens of the wineries and surrounding places. Such spectacular fountains, planters and statuary! Citrus and olive trees in beautiful planters, stone statuary in the midst of bubbling fountains, elaborate terra cotta creations…. Imagine my pleasure, then, when I walked into Authentic Provence in West Palm Beach, Florida. In a beautiful environment of running water and good smells, the owners have sourced one of the finest collections of European garden antiques that I have seen in the USA: statues, fountains, planters (note especially the classic Caisse de Versailles, and Anduze pottery), terra cotta shields, stone animals, copper pots, garden spouts, etc. They also have beautiful stone fireplaces, re-purposed tiles, and many other specialty items. They are available online at, and can arrange shipping anywhere in the US. Well worth a visit!
