October 7, 2004

Marc Rosen of Valencia Fine Wines and Liquors received the "2004 Retailer of the Year Award" presented by the Connecticut Package Store Association. The 2004 Connecticut Package Stores Annual Dinner was held at the Rocky Hill Marriott on October 6, 2004.

This award is given to a package store owner within the state for outstanding leadership within their industry. Mr. Rosen was instrumental in his tireless efforts at public hearings to support the package store issues at all levels. He is a dedicated proponent toward fair legislative laws for package store owners. Marc is always willing to add his time and efforts for any package store cause for the Connecticut Package Store Association.

On a city level, Marc, and his wife Sharon, have received numerous awards for their support of non-profit agency fundraising. Valencia has received the 2002 Greater Meriden Chamber of Commerce "Shining Star Award" that was created in September 2002 to recognize members on a monthly basis for their support and dedication not only to The Greater Meriden Chamber of Commerce, but also to the Meriden Community as a whole.

This past April, Valencia received the 2004 "Small Business Leadership Award" from the Greater Meriden Chamber of Commerce. This honor is granted to a member business that has exemplified outstanding private sector leadership in the Meriden business community. Their commitment to improving our community and their generous support of various organizations made Valencia an outstanding choice for this honor.

Valencia Fine Wines and Liquors is the driving force behind the "Harvest Wine Tasting" and the "Silver City Brewfest". Both of these events are major fundraisers that support local non-profit organizations.

Valencia was also voted #1 in the Record-Journal's "Readers Poll" for Best Wine & Spirits Shop, for both 2003 and 2004.

Marc is a member of the Greater Meriden Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Meriden and the Connecticut Package Store Association where he serves as their Sergeant-at-Arms.
