Seven years of wine
WineNot celebrates anniversary, readies to expand

 When Svetlana Yanushkevich opened her wine shop WineNot Boutique in Nashua seven years ago, she wanted it to be more than just a place to buy wine. 

“Retail wasn’t my dream. My passion was for viticulture and teaching about wine,” she said. “So [WineNot] started as a small retail business but has become a center for wine education. Between blind tastings and wine dinners and multiple classes, we have taught about wine to at least 1,000 people since we opened.”   
On Friday, June 29, and Saturday, June 30, WineNot will celebrate seven years of business with festivities at the shop, including tastings, special deals and raffles. 
On Friday from 5 to 9 p.m., Yanushkevich will host a wine tasting along with special guests Barrett Hamilton, state manager of Kobrand Wine and Spirits, and Brad Chase, owner of Highland Wine Merchants. There will be around a dozen wines featured, including international and domestic wines and wines ranging from the under-$20 to the over-$40 price brackets. 
“It will be a combination of different prestigious wines,” Yanushkevich said. “Something that appeals to a large group of people.” 
On Saturday, there will be another tasting with Yanushkevich and the WineNot team featuring various wines available at the shop. 
Both days will also include samples of some of the shop’s chocolates and cheeses. 
Starting Tuesday, June 27, and continuing through Saturday, there will be special discounts, including 10 percent off all wine, beer and cheese and 15 percent off all single or mixed 12-bottle cases of wine. Additionally, customers who spend at least $50 at the shop will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win one of three prizes. The prizes include a private tasting, either at the winner’s home or at the WineNot shop, hosted by Yanushkevich and featuring a variety of wines, cheeses and chocolates; a rustic wooden wine shelf; and a gift basket filled with wine and specialty food items valued at $150. 
The anniversary coincides with a big announcement from the shop: this fall, WineNot will move from its small storefront on Main Street to a larger location in downtown Nashua. The new location will allow the shop to expand its wine inventory to three times what it is now, and to carry a greater selection of cheese, chocolate, charcuterie, local honey and other specialty food products. It will also provide more space for events and activities. 
“Because we continue to grow with this new space, we want to offer more to the community with fun events, wine dinners and food and wine tastings,” Yanushkevich said. “We love the opportunity to not just sell wine, but to create unique experiences for people who love wine and great food.”
