Unico's Isolation Survival Guide #2

It's been another crazy week, and honestly, they're probably gonna be crazy for the next several months. But we're here together and that's all that matters. To start this off, we'd just like to say THANK YOU. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The support that we've been receiving over the last few weeks has been overwhelming. While we might be pretty loud on social media at the moment, we're really feeling it too, and we're doing everything we can to survive and keep our team together - you guys buying wine makes that happen and we cannot express how much we appreciate it. We're truly humbled. But enough of the sappy stuff; The other thing that is keeping us going...
