Here’s just a little more on Kermit Lynch…
Kermit Lynch began as a retail wine shop in 1972 and later Mr. Lynch himself began importing and distributing nationally. In 2000, the James Beard Foundation named him the Wine Professional of the Year. Over the years, Lynch has earned other awards from the French government and his first book Adventures on the Wine Route won the Veuve Clicquot Wine Book of the Year award. His second book, Inspiring Thirst, was published in 2004.
In 1988 he planted his little terraced hillside near Bandol with Mourvèdre vines. The juice now goes into Domaine Tempier’s famous La Migoua cuvée. Ten years later, he purchased the historic Domaine Les Pallières in Gigondas in partnership with his friends the Bruniers of Vieux Télégraphe. Lynch and his family spend part of the year in Berkeley and part in Provence.
Kermit is one of those essential mavens of the wine world and he can count us among his faithful followers. Also, how much do you love that Thomas Jefferson quote on the Kermit Lynch building “Good wine is a necessity of life.” We agree.
