Celebrating 50 Years of SR Perrott!

This past Wednesday I had the pleasure to visit Daytona, Florida and our good friends at SR Perrott as they celebrated their 50th anniversary as a distributor with a block party for the community.  SR Perrott was started by Samuel Perrott and his wife, and the Daytona branch is one of the largest MillerCoors distributors in the State of Florida. Not only are they great to work with, they are amazing people; every time I’m around anyone from their company I am always treated with nothing but respect and kindness.  This is a rare trait to find in business. Also, they have added a wine distributorship over the years (who we work with) as well as a modeling agency, Michelle & Group.


While I had been briefed about the anniversary event, I knew it was going to be over the top with surprises to come.  Walking in, I saw not only a gigantic collection of beers represented from Corona to PBR, various non-alcoholic drinks and brands but also local restaurants who had come to serve their signature dishes and show support.  The event was held outside of their facility, encompassing all surrounding parking lots and grassy knoll.  There was an amazing collection of the Michelle & Group, models, including Laura Croft and Shawn Dillon.


When I ventured over to the VIP wine area where I was going to be pouring our just released 2010 Labor Wines Pinot Noir and our 2011 Labor Wines Pinot Blanc, I met up with Sue Barry, SR Perrott’s wine representative and Kelly Turner, a friend who is also a model for the company.  It was a great setup, featuring a nice collection of SR Perrott’s wines; small but appropriate. They also made custom glasses for the wine area, which was a nice touch and appreciated by the guests.


Promptly at 6 pm, the doors were opened and 2,000+ of their closest friends streamed in, sampling each and every beer, enjoying the live music featuring a handful of local bands and a gorgeous spring evening.  In the VIP wine area, we saw a steady flow of guests, some wine connoisseurs, some unfamiliar with the different varietals and wine overall but most importantly, everyone was excited to be there and enjoy a great night.


Later in the night with the crowd well lubricated, the headlining act came on, the Marshall Tucker Band. The 40-year music industry veterans did not disappoint, playing to the crowd and having a blast.  Big congratulations to SR Perrott on 50 years.  Looking forward to your next 50 and celebrating with you for years to come! Thrilled to be a business partner of yours… Can’t wait to be back in Daytona for my next visit.

New Release Wines!


It’s time for some wine!  After selling out of our first vintage (2009 Pinot Noir) extremely quickly, to which we can’t thank each and every one of you enough, we are thrilled to announce the release of TWO wines – both from the Willamette Valley.  Our first white wine, the 2011 Pinot Blanc, is now ready for you to taste and try, and our 2010 Pinot Noir, has just been labeled and is jumping out of the bottle!


The Pinot Blanc is a bright, flavorful white – indicative of the vintage, with great balanced acids and flavors of lemon and Granny Smith apple, along with litchi and Asian pear.  All of the fruit comes from the Yamhill Carlton and Chehalem Mountains AVA’s and we believe that this varietal is a natural pairing for its sibling, Pinot Noir, and flavor-wise is a great complement.   The Pinot Blanc is a great wine to pair with any type of cuisine as it is extremely versatile, especially Asian flavors as it cuts through the spice or just to sip while on your patio in the backyard.  This wine is available to you at $16.00 a bottle, $192.00 a case, plus shipping.


Our Pinot Noir is an extremely balanced wine from the 2010 harvest, with lower sugars and structured acid.  The nose has a slight smokiness to it with red and dark fruits coming through the palate, finishing with some chocolate and plum.  Serve with oysters, roast chicken and halibut, or just have a glass with friends.  The Pinot Noir is $25.00 a bottle, $300.00 a case plus shipping.


The wines are now available for you to purchase and can be shipped starting on Tuesday, April 8th.  Feel free to email, call or contact me directly so I can get your order together for you!


As always, thank you for your support and friendship during our journey of Labor Wines.  Also, we’d love to hear from you – please share your experiences, pictures and adventures with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, or call on cell, 702.466.0987.
