Larry Schaffer started the new millennium with a major career change; from the music industry & publishing to the winemaking world. After completing his Masters in Viticulture at UC Davis, he relocated to the Santa Ynez Valley in 2005 and joined the winemaking team at Fess Parker Winery and Epiphany Cellars. Tercero wines was born in 2006 but was merely a side-light for the initial 5 years. In 2011, Larry dove full-time into Tercero and to use his favorite phrase, ‘the best was yet to come’. Tonight, we will enjoy five of his outstanding wines perfectly paired with gourmet cuisine created by Socalo’s culinary team. Socalo is only 3 years old but owners Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken are no strangers to the food scene! Voted one of 101 restaurants that “defines how LA eats” by the Los Angeles Times, Socalo is now a Mexican food mecca that you need to discover (if you haven’t already). Gourmet Wine Getaways’ wine expert Peter Kerr will join Larry to discuss the wines, the pairings and answer your wine-related questions. Come and enjoy! (Thanks to Larry for the picture- a winemaker’s view of the world)
