Priority Wine Pass, Inc. was created in memory of James Michael Cegelski, who lived with zest in life and in wine. Prior to passing away in 2010, he had the dream of owning a winery and creating a wine in which he loved. It is now our mission to give the gift of sharing wine and the exhilarating experience, which embraces all that surrounds each unique winery. At the same time we aim to assist boutique wineries and help broaden the exposure of their efforts and the fruits of their labor to the world, along with assisting larger vintners, which we also love and support, making them more accessible and familiar to all whom have an appreciation for the culture of wine.

Jim Cegelski in loving memory

When you become a member of Priority Wine Pass, we promise to make sure you have the best experiences possible at each vineyard and introduce you to wineries that we have come to know and regard with high integrity.
