5/11-Michael Jordan talks with Michael Ouellette & Fred Scherrer

Michael Ouellette - Vintap Wine
VinTap founder and Director of Operations, Michael Ouellette, has been engaged in the sourcing, marketing and wholesale distribution of artisan wines for Vintap since 2009.  Spanning a career of more than 20 years as a highly successful restaurateur, he first sharpened his skills as a chef, and then moved into the dining room as a sommelier, wine director, and general manager.  Michael has owned and managed some of the top award-winning restaurants in the Napa Valley including Mustards Grill and Martini House and served as consultant to many others including Vino Volo Group, Real Restaurants, Pat Kuleto Restaurant Group, and The Left Bank Restaurant Group.  Michael’s personalized wine programs have received praise from The New York Times, The Wine Spectator and the San Francisco Chronicle for their content and imaginative categories. Michael made the natural progression to wine making in 1992 when he launched his eccentric Blockheadia brand, producing award-winning Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Petite Syrah.

Fred Scherrer - Scherrer Winery

Since our small winery’s first vintage in 1991, our goal has been to create handcrafted, full-flavored wines that express the personality of the unique Sonoma County vineyards where they are grown. Fred first became known for Zinfandel from his father’s Alexander Valley vineyard, and now his careful hand with Pinot Noir from the Russian River and Sonoma County has quietly gained attention and a steady following. That same attention has made Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah that exemplify the bounty of Sonoma County vineyards.Thank you for taking the time to find us,

Fred and Judi Scherrer
