Please join us on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 8:00 P.M.as we taste a cross section of the J. Lohr portfolio of wines.In the late 1960s, Jerry Lohr began an extensive investigation of California grape growing regions – searching for the ideal location for his first vineyard. Jerry was raised on a South Dakota farm; his agricultural roots armed him with an innate sense for the relationship between climate, soil, and location. His research and instincts led him to the Central Coast, an area just beginning to explore its potential for winegrowing.

Our guest speaker, Pam Macrini. has been with J. Lohr since January 2000. She is the Mid-Northeast Regional Manager and oversees J. Lohr sales in NY, CT, and RI. What inspired Pamela to get on the wine train? "I worked in the restaurant industry through high school, college, and after. I’ve always had a passion for food and wine, as well as customer service. I met a lot of different wine sales folks through all of those years, some really terrific people. I recall the first time I ever sat through a staff training with the local wine distributor; I thought, 'I’d like to do that someday!'"
