The Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café, located at 2879 Grand Ave, Los Olivos, is pleased to announce their next featured winemaker in its “Friday Night Winemakers” series. Friday, September 25, winemaker Larry Schaffer from tercero will be chatting with guests and offering samples of his wines, those which he feels would pair perfectly with their meal, during the dinner hours of 6-8PM. Held the last Friday of each month in 2015, the informal and friendly atmosphere at the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café is the perfect place to learn more about these special winemakers while enjoying the fresh local dishes from the Los Olivos Café’s menu. No reservations are required to participate. However, dinner reservations are strongly recommended. For more information or reservations: 805-688-7265 or www.losolivoscafe.com.
Larry Schaffer started off in the educational and trade publishing industry, but after a number of years felt he had finished everything he set out to do in that field, and started wondering about what was next. He had always been interested in winemaking, wondering how did the process work? How did you develop different wines from one grape varietal or another? Learning more about winemaking was the challenge he was looking for, and he left his career to get a degree in Viticulture and Enology. After studying and working for years, Larry began his new career as the Enologist for Fess Parker Winery. He chose the Santa Barbara County because of the openness of the winemaking community, their willingness to help each other, and because the Santa Ynez Valley is a great place to raise children. After a year with Fess Parker, Larry started buying grapes to make his own wines, focusing on Rhone varietal wines under the label tercero wines. With tercero now firmly established with an excellent range of wines, Larry is looking forward to this Friday Night Winemaker event to share the tercero wines with guests of the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café.
