Kermit Lynch, the name is one of the most revered and yet mysterious in the world of wine. While seemingly similar wine importers may get better ratings, more press in the magazines, etc. – Kermit Lynch is a true original that still somehow manages to fly under the radar.
A California native, Kermit Lynch started his eponymous Berkeley, CA store in 1972 with a menial loan of $5,000. He was the first American importer to traverse the back roads of France, tirelessly searching for the most soulful, authentic wines being made.
Over forty years later, Kermit Lynch Imports is recognized as a go-to source for genuine wines made by family owned wines throughout France, and now Italy.
This is one of those times when you look past the fact that the wines may not be the most highly rated, or the lowest priced, and give yourself the opportunity to taste some of the most exciting, historic wines in the world. Kermit Lynch, the name is legendary…wait until you taste the wines!
