Together we’ve changed at least two or three lives with rock n roll music while playing a nice mix of rock and jam band covers mixed in with a rapidly growing repertoire of original music.  An awesome rock band playing 70’s funk, rock and jam music on a mission to change the world with sweet grooves.

The Lions of Mercury are:

  • Kris Shera – electric guitar
  • Zack Preston – percussions n such

The Wines

Fontana Candida Frascati – Italy
“Fontana Candida Frascati is the most popular Frascati in the world and has been a staple of Roman culture for almost 2,000 years.  The grapes for this dry, clean wine are grown in the porous, volcanic soils located in the Frascati commune near Rome. Rich in potassium, this soil produces plump flavorful grapes. Fontana Candida is the only Frascati producer that uses cold filtration and cold bottling to preserve the wine’s flavor and clarity. This easy-to-drink wine pairs well with salads, pasta, veal, chicken, vegetable soups, mild seafood dishes and mild cheeses.” – Fontana Candida

Two Vines Gewurtztraminer – Washington State
“This fruit-forward wine showcases classic Gewürztraminer characteristics of lychee, dried apricots and hints of rose petal. Subtle spicy-sweet fruit flavors linger through a bright, refreshing finish.” – Two Vines

Big Smooth Old Vine Zinfandel – California
“Bursting with aromas of luscious black cherry, blackberry with hints of toasted coconut and Tahitian vanilla. Silky smooth on the palate with flavors of boysenberry and pomegranate reduction. A powerful body with a satin-like finish.” – Big Smooth Wines

Cono Sur *Organic* Cabernet Sauvignon Chile
“This bright, clean intense ruby red blend boasts good aromatic intensity with notes of cherry and red fruits. Hints of chocolate, coffee, spices, olives and tobacco can also be found. It is a full-bodied wine with fat, smooth tannins best paired with red and white meats, cheeses, nuts and sauces.” – Cono Sur Wines
