Big Fish Wines Surfaces Onto Bay Area Scene

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2008) - Big Fish Wines continues to make waves in the California wine scene. The emerging Bay Area boutique winery is pleased to announce the 2006 edition of their well-regarded Santa Barbara County Syrah and the release of their inaugural 2006 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel.

According to owner Hunter Landers, the emergence of Big Fish signifies two important milestones. "First, there's the evolution from a winemaking passion into a business. Those two, as any vintner can tell you, are two wildly different things. Second -- and perhaps more significantly -- it marks my personal conversion from hophead to oenophile. When I moved here from the East Coast ten years ago, I discovered big California Zinfandels and was immediately hooked... if you'll pardon the pun. And ever since I was a kid, I've always needed to know how things worked and how they were made. So, here we are!"

It wasn't long before Landers' 20 years of consumer and industrial marketing experience met his innate hands-on learning style, and Big Fish was spawned. The company's current releases presage a series of "big reds" now available for sale, assuring wine aficionados a steady supply of unique tastings for years to come.
