In Remembrance of a Good Friend…

Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this.

My longtime employee, and good friend Jared passed away yesterday, he was only 51.

Jared leaves behind his wife Sue and three boys: Jacob (20), Tristan (16), and Beckett (12).

Jared has been with me since I started Golden Gate Wine Cellars almost 20 years ago.

As many of you know me well, I share my stories with you, and Jared was an integral part of Golden Gate Wine Cellars behind the scenes, and I will miss him.

Jared was an avid outdoorsman, hiker, skier, and surfer, a great husband and dad to his three boys.

I will be donating 5% of all sales from today through Friday to assist Jared's family with the funeral and other immediate expenses.

Please, help me to raise a toast to my good friend Jared.
