A message from the Wine Fairy:
Hi guys, it's the official Wine Fairy here! That's right, it's really me. I've been called the Present Pixie, Wine Ninja, Porch Fairy, and more. I've loved watching how you're all coming together during this time, and while you're all continuing to practice social distancing this summer, I've got some great tips for you on how you can spread this tradition to your friends and neighbors! My hope is that the tradition of the wine fairy continues long after this virus perishes! For those of you who don't know...
What the heck is a wine fairy?
The wine fairy is a stealth wine (or other non-alcoholic beverage) drop off group that friends and neighbors are participating in. From Vancouver is Awesome: "The Kamloops Rona Wine Fairies launched on May 6 and already has over 2,700 members. You join, post your address and your drink of choice (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and wait for a special delivery from one of the other members. A wine fairy then hopefully drops off the gift at your door and runs away. Once you've been "wined," you delete your address off the Facebook page (or post a picture of your goodies under your original address post), in order to give others a chance to be "fairied."
