Jake Lorenzo is Sonoma’s best known private investigator. He specializes in high society murder cases, but since Sonoma doesn’t have any high society, and rarely has a murder case, he’s had to survive performing seedy divorce work for Sonoma County winery owners. Since many of these winery owners try to beat him out of his hard-earned fees, Jake has often accepted wine in payment for his services. Drinking his way through these payments has made Jake a wine expert.


Jake is the resident philosopher for the Wine Patrol. Jake is relentless. He pulls no punches. He shrinks from no truth, and he makes you laugh loud and often. "There can be no revolution without a sense of humor," says Jake. Jake describes our mission. Follow along, and take no prisoners.
