Celebrity Parking Lot Pick Up: Michele D'Aprix

News Release: Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

About: Wine World Celebrity Brings Your Box to Your Car!
Michele D'Aprix, American Woman Winemaker and a favorite of MetroWines, will be helping us serve you, following all health and safety guidelines, from 3 to 6pm on Friday, May 8th in the parking lot @MetroWines. This is the first in our "Celebrity Parking Lot Pick Up" series which will include locally accessible winemakers, importers and chefs.
When you buy a case of wines made by Michele, including Pentimento Bordeaux, Maz Caz White and Red Rhone Blends and Pierre Angulaire Bordeaux Blanc, Michele will deliver, with face mask and gloves, signed bottles to your car with time for a six feet of separation photo. 
Michele has been in home isolation here in North Carolina for five weeks. With reduced staff working, we have asked her to help us out on one of our busiest days of serving customers. "Don't miss this opportunity for a little silver lining in these troubled times," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines.
Originally from upstate New York, Michele started as a bartender in Boston while studying chemistry. Her expertise in multi-tasking landed Michele a job at Dry Creek Winery in California. From there, Michele attended U.C. Davis earning a degree in Viticulture and Enology. 
Michele then headed to Bordeaux and trained with accomplished and highly regarded winemaker Stephane Derenocourt known for his many bottles that have garnered 100 points from critics. 
Adding her own touch, Michele started her own project in St. Emilion, "Pentimento." And the rest is, as they say, wine history! Michele has been called "the new face of Bordeaux."
"Michele and her wines have been popular since we opened the doors almost seven years ago," says Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines.  "The wines are great but it is meeting the charismatic, accomplished and approachable Michele, that makes this parking lot pick up a must for anyone who appreciates winemaking."
