The Marketplace boutique gift shop, located on the property of the favorite destination winery resort, has expanded to add 2,000 square feet of unique shopping experience to meet the needs of its shoppers. The expansion connects to the existing building through the large North window of the store and is scheduled to open at the end of April 2022.

More Room to Shop

“We have outgrown our current space, we want to be able to properly display and retail our own GV brand products,” said retail buyer for The Marketplace, Christi Blackerby. “While we added more space for GV products we also added much more retail space for home decor, jewelry, and fun items for our guests to take home as a reminder of their special time with us. And, the added space will allow our local customers to have a great place to buy special gifts for special occasions or a gift for themselves.”

A few of the lines of products being added include:

Plus, there will be many other new home décor items and new GV branded apparel from GOODLIFE, Johnny O, and Beyond Yoga that will be available.

Blackerby said, “The new space will allow us to merchandise all our existing and new lines in a more customer-friendly fashion.”

Shopping at The Marketplace

Sandy Fraedrich is the Marketplace Operations Manager. She said it will be wonderful “to have more Marketplace to experience!” She said most people have mentioned that it will be helpful to have the wine and spirits together in a larger setting so that shoppers can see all that Gervasi has have to offer at a glance.

Fraedrich said, “It is incredibly exciting to be able to have the space to show case all of our unique lines that deserve to be merchandised and displayed in a way to show their uniqueness. The expansion allows for a much better flow of merchandise throughout the space and the ability to have our wine and spirits shine together in the beautiful custom cabinetry that will line the walls along with a new tasting bar that will be used for special events.”

Scott Swaldo, CEO and General Manager of, GV Destinations, is also thrilled to be able to bring more shopping space to Gervasi’s customers.

“Not only did we need more space to meet the needs of our growing customer base, but we’ll now be able to feature and present our wines and spirits in a much-improved way,” Swaldo said.
