And here is something more about it and its owner, as it received the Professional Excellence Award for 2003. No wonder the White House served Warren Winiarskis Cabarnet at the state dinner for the President of the Republic of Poland in July. (It also happens that Winiarski means "vintners son" in Polish.)
