An expansive, engaging feature in Forbes chronicles how an accomplished wine executive got together with a famous jazz/blues/rock musician to create a new way to experience wine and music.

Expert wine executive Eric Guerra and two-time Grammy nominee Mindi Abair have joined forces to bring music and wine together. Reserve Tastings Wine Company is a labor of love -- a unique combination of curated wines, complementary music playlists, custom labels and music festival events.

FORBES - Interview Feature - 12/16/19 By Gary Stoller
Lengthy interview here:
(Excerpt): Put together a Grammy-nominated musician and a wine expert, and maybe their new venture is obvious.

Saxophonist and singer Mindi Abair and her husband Eric Guerra, a 17-year wine industry veteran, have launched Reserve Tastings Wine, a club for consumers that pairs music and wine. Abair, who has many solo albums and played with numerous top jazz, rock and blues musicians, earned a Grammy nomination in 2013 for Best Pop Instrumental Album and, two years later, for Best Contemporary Instrumental album. "Put wine and music together," Guerra says, "and they heighten the experience of each other."

Eric Guerra's new book has just been published:
When Great Wine Is Not Enough: A Wine Sales And Marketing Guide For Wineries, Négociants & Wine Brand Owners. Learn more: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0578629518/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_1Z6eEb4PN9PYH

Mindi Abair comments on Reserve Wine Tastings: "Music is my life. Wine is Eric's life. Wine + Music are created with passion and artistry, forming the indelible soundtracks to the moments in our lives. And, we know they are influenced and enhanced by each other. Great wine can absolutely be taken to the next level when paired with the right music, and music becomes so much more when sipping the right wine. I've personally created playlists to pair with each of our wines. Pour, drink, listen and experience how the two worlds come together as one."

Here's how it works:
1) Using his years of insider knowledge, wine expert Eric Guerra finds a variety of boutique, high-quality wines for members-only.

2) Inspired by the wine, musician Mindi Abair names it, curates the label artwork and a music playlist that pairs perfectly with the wine.

3) 3 to 6 times per year, releases are sent to your home or office. Sip, listen and enjoy!
