New Sheriff In Town: Meet the winemaker Friday: Guardian Cellars

Posted by John Eckhart Posted on Feb - 24 - 2012


Dear Enotecans,

Sheriff Jerry is coming to Enoteca on Friday, February 24th from 4-7pm. We’re pouring the wines on Saturday from 12-7 as well. If you’re ever wondering what sort of tasting events we have coming up, check out the tasting event calendar on our website any time.

This is a drop-in tasting so just come on down and show up!  We first met Jerry last year, he’s a policeman in Washington who got into making wine.  You’ll notice a law-and-order theme to his wine names.  The Guardian Angel.  Gunmetal.  The Wanted.  The Informant.  How cool is that?  Need to get a gift for someone related to the field?  These bottles of wine taste amazing, look classy, and are named right so they’re the perfect fit.

These are freaking good, don’t miss out on this tasting!

Haven’t been to an Enoteca tasting yet? Read what it’s like here.
