Living in Temecula and loving wines it wasn’t long before I found myself at South Coast Winery, the premier winery in our area.

In 2012 an acquaintance offered to introduce me to Jeff Carter and his amazing and talented team of winemakers and the head of distribution for SCW. Soon after that meeting we did our first wine together.

WARRANT- I Saw Red – Cabernet – California , since then we have done several wines together including our latest wines (WARRANT – Hard Rocker Red – 2011 Meritage Monterrey) and Erik Turner – Dog Day Afternoon – California. To learn more about these rockin’ wines and the winery please visit:


Dog Day Afternoon is delightfully delicate with SWEET reminders of those carefree days at the beach, Rock Hard With Hard Rocker Red!lounging by the pool or going for a ride. We can learn a thing or two about how to chill, frolic or even be spoiled by our favorite companions.

Hitting it big in 1989, the Hollywood, CA based band rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to the level of multiplatinum selling, chart-topping success. The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.

The single “Heaven” enjoyed Gold sales and the Album went Platinum in Canada as well, eventually selling over 3 million copies.
