Kathy Cox, Wine Expert
As a poor college grad I shopped in the “3 for $7″ bin at Specs for a couple of years then became more particular, starting with Italian reds, and some French Cotes Du Rhones but I’ve always had a bottle of Champagne in the fridge – love it! Moved to California in the 80’s and went straight to Paso Robles Zinfandel’s which are one of my favorites today.

Dennis Reinig, Wine Expert
My name is Dennis and I have worked for Macadoodles wine room in Pineville MO. for 3 ½ years. My first experience with wine took place 40 years ago when I went to a wine tasting event in Texas. From that time on I have maintained a growing interest in learning about and enjoying wine. When traveling around the country for business or pleasure I always check to see if there are any local winery’s I could stop and try the local fare. One of the great things about wine is the huge variety that is out there to explore. Don’t get hooked on one style or varietal; explore, experience, enjoy the many wine options that out there. One if the great things about working in Macadoodles® wine room is the wealth of knowledge. We have folks who are passionate about wine and continue to learn from each other as we grow. Our monthly Wine 101 classes are a great way to learn as we bring in outside experts to educate about wine. Ask about it next time you are in our wine room.

RitaRita Clemans, Wine Expert
For fifteen years I was an International Flight Attendant and learned to love red wine while on time off in Italy.  Having spent most of my life in California, our favorite family destination was visiting wineries.  I love to work with the public having worked in retail most of my life in grocery, cosmetics, clothing, furniture and now…wine. I am blessed to work in the ever-expanding, fast paced wine department at Macadoodles®!

My breakthrough year for wine was 1973. I was privileged to taste that year a grand cru Burgundy, grand cru Barsac and an Auslese from the Rheingau. Since that pivotal year, I have studied and tasted a variety of wines produced globally. It is my great pleasure to share these experiences with others.

My introduction to wine came quite naturally – at the family dinner table. I grew up in New Orleans, LA and as most know, French culture has had a tremendous impact on the area. A big part of that is dining and one never had a meal without a bottle of wine on the table. I moved on long ago and ended up in the Tampa Bay area where I ended up working as a sales account representative for a liquor distributor. It was inevitable that I would gravitate towards Macadoodles with it’s unsurpassed wine selection….A continuum in a life-long love affair with wine.
