Hi! I'm Eric the STLwineguy and I'm here to help make the wonderful world of wine a little more understandable and approachable! Whether you're a wine expert or a novice, let's have some fun learning together!
First, let me say that I was once a White Zinfandel-drinking novice wine drinker, so I understand where many of us started our wine journey. During my nine years with PRP Wine, I have gained a much better understanding of the complexities of wine and how to really evaluate and enjoy wine! I am constantly improving my knowledge to better serve my clients, and I love learning from my clients as well! In the past few years, I've visited wineries in California, Mexico, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Greece, Canada, and Spain.
And while my wine knowledge has grown and continues to expand, I'm adamantly against the snobbery that often comes with wine expertise. Yes, I believe there are bad wines, but I also believe the most important determinant of a wine is your own palate. I'm here to help you develop your palate to know better what you like and why you like it. In addition, I have learned to greatly value the role that food pairings can play in enhancing the wine experience.
So why PRP Wine? Yes, I love the wines -- they're unique, have wonderful stories, and represent some of the best small vineyards across the globe. But more importantly, I love the way PRP values the tasting experience. The PRP Wine tasting experience is about enjoying wine with friends and family. It's about stretching your palate to discover new tastes. It's about trying something before you would ever consider buying it. That's a company I can stand behind!
So grab a glass, and let's get to exploring new wines together!
