After being named "Winemaker to Watch", having four wines rated at 90+ points by Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast magazines, and having a wine on the "Top 100 Wines of 2009" list, we finally convinced winemaker Larry Schaffer of Tercero Wines to come up and pour for the people of San Francisco!

Whether you've read about him in Wine Spectator as an up and coming Rhone Producer or in the San Francisco Chronicle as a "Winemaker to Watch", this humble and talented winemaker has gathered a lot of attention lately. It shows in his wines, especially at these great VALUES. With 90+ point ratings from both Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast magazine, Tercero is on a role. Come down and taste for yourself and meet Larry Schaffer as he pours through his latest releases including:
2008 "The Outlier" Gewurztraminer ($18)
2008 Grenache Blanc ($18)
2008 Rosé ($15)
2006 Cuvée Christine ($28)
2007 Syrah, Larner Vineyard ($28)
2007 Grenache, Watch Hill ($28)

And maybe we can get him to pour his Mourvedre and some barrel samples. It will be a blast!
About Tercero Wines
Tercero wines produces top quality red, white, and rose wines from leading vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County. Our goal is to create wines that are distinct, interesting, good to drink, fun to share with others, and are reasonably priced.
We look at things in very simple terms – start with great grapes from great places, take care of the grapes/wines during each and every step of the process, and then bottle each wine under screw cap to ensure minimal bottle variation during its life after bottling.
Our company is small – only two of us – and therefore we cherish the relationships we have built up, and will build up, with you – our customers. We appreciate any and add feedback – let us know what you think of our wines, ask us questions about our wines, and tell others about us, too.
