    (Tom)

    The Chairman and founder of Nine Acre Wines. In 1972, Tom took over a small grocery store which is now across the street from Nine Acre Wines. This was a time when wine was changing with the growth of California wines. Tom, with local area distributors, began to study in-depth all aspects of wine and developing his then small grocery store into a premier fine wine outlet. Through the years, Tom has met with the world's best winery owner's and wine makers and is considered one of the Boston area's premier retailers. As the saying goes the rest is history...

    (Paul)

    Paul has been part of the Nine Acre Wines family for more than twenty years and has been our newsletter writer/editor for most of that time. While N.A.W. is no longer his “day job”, he finds time to keep up on industry trends and news, taste wines and write about it all. A lover of big reds, so-dry-you-can-fold-'em whites, good sherry, Champagne, American 'craft beer' and anything brewed in Belgium, he describes himself as a happy warrior in the fight against "insidious neo-prohibitionists".
