Roger started working for Surdyk's back in 1989, and as a lifelong lover of wine and food, has passed on his knowledge and passion to our customers for 32 years. Roger developed a loyal following with customers who rely on his thoughtful recommendations, always having a knack for selecting the right thing, no matter how spontaneous the request.
He is respected as a trusted voice for people at all stages of wine experience, beginners to experts alike. He has been particularly fond of opening people’s eyes and taste buds to the multitude of good, affordable wines available, and especially of encouraging customers to develop their own definition of “good,” rather than relying on scores or ratings. He may have asked you, "Well, what did you like about it?" and sent you home with something you never expected.
We are thankful for his tenure at Surdyk’s and wish him well as he heads into this well-deserved next chapter.
