Please join us Wednesday, May 27th any time between 4:30-7:30 pm, when we welcome, McPrice Myers, to our wine bar. “Mac” is the founder and winemaker and will present a flight of his wonderful small production Central Coast Syrahs and Rhône blends.

 

Mac likes to say that most people who knew him growing up probably expected him to end up in jail, even his own father, who was a prison guard, would tell him so. Little would they believe he turned into a serious and seriously appreciated winemaker. Raised in East Los Angeles in an Irish-American household, Mac wasn’t exposed to wine or fine cuisine but he always knew he had a good palate and that good quality ingredients and well prepared food were important to him. After graduating high school Mac didn’t dream of going to college yet his love for baseball gave him the opportunity to play third base at Cypress College in Orange County. An unfortunate arm injury forced him to quit the team and drop out of school. As often happens when one door closes another opens…he got a job at Trader Joe’s which changed his life forever. He finally had that exposure to the wine world he didn’t even know he was missing until he got to taste great old wines his boss had been collecting for years. Mac was totally smitten by this experience which inspired him to go wine tasting and explore producers along the Central Coast. Soon, he started helping out at harvest and eventually working with about 50 different winemakers in Paso Robles and Santa Barbara, getting all the on the job training he needed to strike out on his own.

 

Mac trusted his palate and founded McPrice Myers in 2002. He has gained a great reputation for producing delicious full bodied and generously fruited Rhône-style wines sourcing fruit from many of the great Central Coast vineyard sites he learned about during his apprentice years.
