Last year, I wrote about Thomas Perez who fled El Salvador in 1984 at the age of thirteen. He's been making quite a name for himself in the wine business. He has a new website up for his venture, Kristi-Lynn Wine, at http://kristilynnwine.com/.
Born from world-class sommelier Thomas Perez’s humble beginnings and impeccable palate, Kristi-Lynn is a testament of his true love and passion for wine.
One of the very few sommeliers in the world who is also an enologist, Thomas engages his extensive knowledge of wine making and education from time spent with Jean François at Domaine Coche-Dury and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti to deliver some of the worlds most exquisite wines.
Carefully selected from arguably the best wine regions in the world, Kristi-Lynn produces wine using only the most seductive and complex grapes. Expressive of Thomas’ contemporary wine making techniques, Kristi-Lynn wine showcases the pure identity of these varietals from Santa Maria Valley, California; Willamette Valley, Oregon; Mendoza, Argentina; and La Rioja, Spain.You can also connect with him on Facebook and Twitter (@kristilynnwine and @TperezWin).
Good luck Thomas!
Now where can I find a nice Malbec?
