Dave Johnson takes care of the wine department at Oakville Grocery in North Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Store is located directly across the street from P.F. Chang’s restaurant at the Kierland Shopping Center. Dave is a warm and friendly fellow, he is well-traveled in addition to being a Level III Sommelier. He has worked with and trained with some of the worlds most famous wineries, wine makers, he’s been there and done that, so to speak. He now calls Arizona home, and has lived here for the past 10 years.
This is a video of my visit. In it Dave tells us about a wine he had a hand in creating, he has actually made 6 vintages of wine.
