Thanks for Helping us Celebrate 15 years

Le Pichet would like to say a great big THANK YOU to all our friends, family and guests who stopped by during our 15th Anniversary Celebration in the week leading up to Le Pichet’s birthday on August 3rd.

In the same way that we would not have made it to our 15th Birthday without all of you, our Birthday celebration was extra special because so many friends old and new, made time to stop by, share a glass and say “Hello”.

Thanks for 15 great years and looking forward to our next 15!
