CSO (Cheif Smoozing Officer) Ed from Michigan

Posted by CSO, Aug 14, 2008.

Hey all, I'm The Manging Partner of a small boutique winery in south east Michigan, I and my partners have been in business for about six years. Though we started out as home wine makers we now have (as my wife says) a hobby gone wild. I have a pretty good wine and food pairing knowledge and always love to talk about and learn about wines from all over the world. I look forward to exchanging information and ideas with you all.

Ed - welcome to the site! Got to say, I love your title... Earlier today were discussing at what point in snooths development do we get a corporate "officer in charge of drukeness" and I declared, "immediately after the "snooth town crier"! However, schmoozing officer sounds like something we need much sooner

Ed, welcome. What's the name of your winery? Do you distribute outside of Michigan?

Welcome, great to have you here! I always wondered what happens to those that make wine out of there house, quite a different market than home brews; now I know they start their own wineries.

Welcome, Ed! Congratulations on your hobby gone wild. It's a rewarding one.

@Philip -- I definitely see a need for a town crier. "Hear ye, hear ye!"

Thanks For the Welcome! the name of my winery is Pentamere Winery ( it translates from the Latin as five lakes or five seas depending on the interpretation of the word mere) Yes it is very rewarding I'm living my dream.

Sorry forgot to answer the distribution question. We do ship to some states but we are very small 2000 cases per year production all wines in small lot of high quality average is about 150 case of each varietal or blends, some as much as 350 cases. SO you won't find us on the local grocery store
shelf. We have gain a really good and loyal following in our first six years and the winery is growing still. Distribution hopefully down the road.
