Please join us at Mission Bay Wine & Cheese on Thursday, August 5th. We are excited to welcome Matt Gerloff, presenting a flight of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant selections.
Kermit Lynch is a legendary figure in the wine world and a very charismatic gentleman. For almost 50 years, Kermit Lynch has championed small producers and their authentic, beautifully made European wines. Along with his good friend Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse, Kermit has had an enduring effect on how we appreciate and consume wine and food both in restaurants and at home. He opened Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant in Berkeley, California in 1972 and thanks to his top-quality import business and his James Beard Award winning books on wine, he continues to educate America on the wonders of old-world wines from Europe. Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant also pioneered the consistent use of refrigerated shipping containers for imported wine, an extra expense that can have a significant impact on quality.
In 1998, Kermit purchased the historic Domaine Les Pallières in Gigondas in partnership with his friends, the Brunier brothers of Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe. In fact, Kermit has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has was knighted by the French government and awarded the top honor bestowed on civilians in France: Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.
We are thrilled to have Matt Gerloff, Northern California Sales Representative for Kermit Lynch, here to present some of Kermit’s delightful selections in our wine bar.
