Jason MacPhee

Wine Category Manager

Jason has over 17 years of experience as a wine merchant and he’s been with Bishop’s Cellar since 2013. He believes the advice he received early in his career that “drinking wine with good food and good company enhances your conversation, your meal, and your life”.

Jason works in our shop and within our purchasing team to manage the store’s wine needs. He has a true passion for being an approachable wine professional: he works hard to make wine shopping less complicated and intimidating for customers of all knowledge levels.

A self-proclaimed “Rhone Ranger” (lover of wines from the Rhone Valley in France), Jason keeps busy and active outside the store. He also loves baseball, hitting the gym, spending time with his awesome fiancee Amanda, and getting outside with his dog Riley.

Jason MacPhee's Picks

Hacienda El Ternero has origins in Rioja which date back nearly a century.  Located in Rioja Alta, the vineyards are at an average altitude of 650 m, the vines are planted in clay and pebble rich soils  protected by the Obarenes mountain range, and are all estate owned.

Torno or Turnstile is 100% Tempranillo Crianza. A Spanish wine labeled Crianza means the wine has aged minimum one year in oak and one year in the bottle before its release date.  Aromatic notes of plum, cherry, and vanilla follow through to the palate where they are met with a surprisingly fresh round palate and balanced acidity.   

Perfect to pair with any high fat meats or the classic lamb pairing. A lighter style of crianza makes it great on the patio enjoying the first spring evenings of warm weather, before rose season hits.
