Contact: Greg Harrington

Although no stranger to a wine bottle, Pam Harrington would not generally be categorized as a wine expert. Her career has straddled investment banking at JP Morgan, VC fundraising responsibilities at an internet startup and national education policy advocacy work with a Boston-based non-profit. Her current position outside of Gramercy is as a private equity recruiter with a national search firm called Glocap. Although her knowledge of wine does seem to grow with each sip, it is not likely that Pam will be directing winemaking efforts at Gramercy any time soon. Instead she focuses on marketing and retail sales for Gramercy.

A native of the Philadelphia suburbs, Pam happily left her east coast roots for a new adventure in Washington State where she joined her sister who had already discovered Seattle, followed soon by their mother.

Pam is proud to have been able to give her father's name to Gramercy's first Reserve wine, called John Lewis. It is because of his life's hard work that Greg and Pam have been able to found Gramercy Cellars.

Not to be outdone by her rockstar husband, Pam has taken on some wine-related challenges of her own since founding Gramercy. During harvest 2006, she emerged victorious in the first annual "Best Press and Tank Cleaner" contest, although she was the only contestant. Having successfully defended that title in 2007, harvest 2008 brought a new challenge in the form of "Best Food and Beer Gopher." These winery challenges are clearly limitless as Pam continues to prove her worth as a winery team member!!

n 1996 at the age of 26, Greg Harrington became the youngest American to pass the Master Sommelier exam, a title held by less than 80 people in the United States. A 1992 graduate of the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, Greg began his career in wine as a sommelier at Joyce Goldstein's Square One in San Francisco.

In 2008, Seattle Magazine named Greg as "Best New Winemaker in Washington" and Gramercy "Best New Winery." Greg has four times been the featured sommelier at the acclaimed James Beard House in New York City and is a regular guest lecturer for undergraduate and graduate beverage management courses at the Cornell Hotel School. Greg also serves on the Board of the Court of Master Sommeliers and is co-founder and board member for W2U, an annual wine trade weekend in Walla Walla.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
