LOWER ESTATE, Tortola, VI: Caribbean Cellars, one of the major distributors of Wines and Spirits in the Virgin Islands, has today Saturday, October 27, 2018, reopened its Headquarters located in Lower Estate on the main island of Tortola.

The store, which was flattened by killer storms Irma and Maria in September 2017, also fell victim to a wave of widespread looting following those Hurricanes.

The building, owned by JOMA Properties was rebuilt and today in a brief ribbon cutting ceremony at the Lower Estate Headquarters, the offices and store were officially reopened.

The ribbon was cut by General Manager Kevin S. Fahie who spoke and offered a welcome greeting to all “loyal customers” while divulging details about the store’s official welcome back party.

Also on hand for the grand reopening was President of Caribbean Cellars Richard Berry who said he was “Proud of the reopening and to partner with the building owners, the O’Neal family.”  He said he was “thankful for the amazing staff” and noted that “no one was laid off following the storms,” in fact, he said they continued providing employment.

Welcome back

Chief Operations Manager at JOMA Properties Ms Fayola Wilson-Creque also thanked Caribbean Cellars for returning to the Lower Estate Building and she was “encouraged to see Caribbean Cellars back bigger, stronger and better.”

Following the grand reopening, there is a welcome back party with Guest DJ Nu Nu, along with DJ Push Pop. The party will also feature a cash bar with no entrance fees.

Caribbean Cellars offers a wide selection of Wines, Spirits and non-alcoholic beverages in the Virgin Islands.

    Glad to see the business up and running but youall blasted us out of our homes all night with the loud and inconsiderate volume of the music. No issue with the party but the sound could have been tone down to show some respect to the neighborhood. Be considerate to others
