Who is The Wine Jerk?

Who is The Wine Jerk?
WJ in the vineyardThe Wine Jerk is me. Christopher Thomas Adams, to be specific. But that hardly matters. What does matter is the wine. The Vino. “Focus on the wine, and you’ll be fine.” Sound advice, indeed. As the wine industry progressed, so did our tastes. It became difficult to know good wine from bad. That is why it helps to have someone in the wine business that is on your side. That person is me. I do not work for a winery, distributor or faceless corporation. I work for you. Personalized tastings and wine-shopping trips that help you find what you like. The majority of  people make wines [or any other art for that matter] for two reasons: Love and/or Money. What The Wine Jerk does is based in love. I love wine. I love most people. And I really love that you are reading this right now. Something to think about as you sip.

My Love of Wine

Christopher the Wine Jerk started as an idea when I was a young man.  I was wearing a cowboy hat and lived in Ronald Reagan country. I liked Tonka trucks–dump trucks specifically–and I was a tough little dude.

My love of wine had nothing to do with this but lets have some fun. From my first job as a soda jerk, I was always comfortable behind the bar.

When I lived in Palm Springs I watched Gerry Ford play golf.  Then I began bartending and soon realized I liked wine drinkers more than vodka drinkers. I learned how to play golf. The rest is history.

Now, my slice is improving, Gerry Ford no longer plays and I am drinking fine wines.  It’s a journey that started as a young boy and the path has led me here.  I am ready to share the lessons I have learned about enjoying wine.  Cheers!
