Jerome Draper Wine Merchant

Jerome Draper Wine Merchant

Jerome Draper Jr has been active in many wine related entities for over 75 years – Draper Vineyards in the Napa Valley, Draper & Esquin, Wine Distributors, Wine Imports, Ltd, Chestnut Hill, Ravenswood Winery, Vintners Club and now Jerome Draper Wine Merchant which is his wine store in San Anslemo, California (Marin County) where he meets customers seven days a week by appointment.

Jerome keeps in touch with the 10,000 customers on his mailing list and can deliver wine to any place in California and to a number of other states. 40% of his sales come via the internet, 50% by telephone and 10% from those he meets at his store.

The market has changed dramatically in the past few years – the number of wineries has increased, prices have become quite reasonable, and heavy discounts are often available. When Jerome buys a given wine at a discount, he always passes on the savings to his customers.

Jerome tastes every wine before and during dinner, and only selects those that he likes, and thinks that you will like. He can’t taste them all, of course, so if someone wants a specific wine, tell him and he will get it for you.

He loves this business, and even though he'll be 100 next year, he has no plans to retire.

Thank you for your business.
