“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
The ShyWay Tour has taken Todd and the team over 15,000 miles (which is around 1,500 bottles of wine) from May of 2020 and beyond. This journey was spun from concern of a closed tasting room in 2020, and our goal is to meet people safely where they are. What this journey has shaped was unexpected. The grind of the road has been a parallel to our current collective experience. It’s been full of twists, turns, unexpected pot holes and some interesting truck stop conversations. But each destination on this journey has deepened what it means to be Dakota Shy. Our most loyal clients and friends welcome us into their homes, showing us how our wines are woven into their lives and giving us the platform to share our story and to help shape this next chapter. It is a profound experience to meet people’s extended families, their neighbors, their colleagues and share our wines with sincerity, appreciation and a lot of laughter.
As we push into 2022, the ShyWay Tour will push with it.
