CAMERON HUGHES TO HEADLINE MRT WINE TASTING


MRT is excited to announce Cameron Hughes, owner and co-founder of Cameron Hughes Wine will be attending the fourth annual Merrimack Repertory Theatre Wine & Beer Tasting on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 from 6:00PM-8:30PM at the Richard K. & Nancy L. Donahue Center at Bagshaw Mills, 132 Warren Street, Lowell, hosted by the Friends of MRT. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to meet Cameron and sample the many Cameron Hughes Wines that will be available that night.


Hughes got into the business a few years after college. His father, Steve Hughes, invited him to work the summer at his wine company supporting his direct-marketing team. Hughes quickly discovered that his passion was for selling wine, and he was good at it. He rose quickly within the organization but soon became disenchanted with big-company selling, so he went to work with a small French importing group. Soon after he decided to branch out on his own.


Along with his wife and business partner, Jessica Kogan, Cameron founded Cameron Hughes Wine. They began in 2001, setting out to offer high-quality wine at affordable prices. They hit their stride in 2004 with the Lot Series, which leads the company brand portfolio along with their other fantastic wines. Hughes now works with world-class growers, sellers, and winery owners to bring their customers premium wines at excellent prices.


Wine and beer for the MRT Wine Tasting will be supplied by Tutto Bene, with additional local beers from Lowell Beerworks. Tickets are $45 per person, and can be purchased online at MerrimackRep.org or by calling 978-654-7552. Parking is available on the street and in the Lower Locks Parking Garage for $5. Proceeds from the event support Merrimack Repertory Theatre’s mainstage productions and education programs.
