Yes, I work at Trader Joe's in the wine section at the Ventura, CA store.  The purpose of my blog is to offer insights to really cool wines at TJ's that offer exceptional value.  Also, as a real wine guy, I travel to the Santa Ynez wine country a couple of times each month and will share my more memorable experiences with you.  I am in the process of visiting most of the wineries in Santa Barbara County and will share with you, my favorites, with details as to what makes each special and worthy of a visit.  

Also, I write a monthly wine newsletter for our store and will share those with you.  I try to make them entertaining, informative, and educational.  

I'd love to get feedback from any readers, so let's get this thing going!

My Profile

I'm Tom "da Wine Guy" and I work as "da wine guy" at Trader Joe's in Ventura, CA.  I'm not the buyer but I am the seller.  They make me taste lots of wine so I can answer our customers wine questions.  It's the tough part of the job.  

I also travel to the SantaYnez wine country a couple of times each month and will share any interesting experiences and comment on my favorite wine tasting rooms.
