Mary Horn, our guest speaker for this evening, earned an Advanced Sommelier, Level IV certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers, and is Vice President of Fine Wine Education for Heidelberg/Wine Trends Distributing. Mary is a very an engaging, knowledgeable speaker and is committed to making sure you have a good time as you taste and learn about Kermit Lynch and his fine portfolio of wines.
Kermit Lynch was raised in San Luis Obispo, but his name has become synonymous with French and Italian wines. In 1972, this writer/musician opened Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant. Attracted by the Old World wine cultures of Europe, Kermit became a retailer, distributor, and national importer for authentic wines that express their terroir. He has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has won two James Beard awards and was knighted by the French government with their prestigious “Legion d’Honneur.”
In 1998, he purchased the historic Domaine Les Pallières in Gigondas in partnership with his friends, the Brunier brothers of Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe. In addition to having three books published, Adventures on the Wine Route (1988, Veuve Cliquot Wine Book of the Year), Inspiring Thirst (2004), and the 25th Anniversary Edition: Adventures on the Wine Route (2013), his passion for roots music has driven him to record five CDs so far.
