I’m starting to get over my fear of wine and as I do, I’m finding that quite a few of my favorite beer and wine sellers are bringing in some very approachable wine folks that can make the process of understanding and appreciating wine even easier.
I know what I like, most of the time. But for me, wine is really about exploring. I’d rather not continue to buy only what I like, but rather keep moving around and trying more and more different kinds of wine, and different wineries.
On September 21st, Luka’s is using technology bring Greg Harrington, Wine Maker at Gramercy Cellars to St. Louis. Greg, in the late ’90’s, became the youngest Master Sommelier in the world. In his past life, he has worked for some of the best restaurants in the world.
Gramercy Cellars was founded in 2005 by Harrington and his wife, Pam, to make Rhone and Bordeaux style wines in Washington State. Their wines display balance, intense fruit, strong earthiness, restraint, and elegance. His wines have quickly gained praise from critics and consumers alike.
Prior to founding Gramercy, Harrington spent his career overseeing some of the most prestigious wine programs in the country working for top restaurants and chefs such as Joyce Goldstein, Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, and Stephen Hanson.
