Retired dentist with Memphis roots sees success with small wine label

January 03, 2013

Turner, an affable retired dentist with a trim mustache who lives part of the year in Memphis and part in San Francisco, owns the Robert Turner label and makes the wines, which are available in six restaurants and three retail stores in Memphis. He doesn't own vineyards or a winery, buying grapes and making three wines, a chardonnay and a pinot noir from Sonoma County's Russian River Valley and a cabernet franc from Napa Valley, in a rented facility.
