Our selection process is a group effort. Every member of my team (Amar, Emilie, Dave, Paul, Derek, Diana and Ian)
bring their varied backgrounds in the wine and food industries to the process. Some have 20+ years experience; others
are relative newcomes with only a few years under their belts. All of us are unique, hoever, and that makes for a great
blend of wine styles to be found in the store.
The evaluation starts with tasting wine after wine after wine - a tough job, we know, but someone's got to do it! As we go
through this grueling process, my staff and I evaluate each one, looking at a variety of things: color, aromas, teast, food
compatibility, and most important value. If the wine in the bottle is not worth what is being asked for it, it does not make
the cut. Wine is something that should be enjoyed with family and friends, and it is always easier to enjoy if you know it is
worth the money.
Wines are always changing from one vintage to the next, so sometimes old favorites get left behind, but don't despair -
that just means some new favorites are finding their way onto the shelves. Wine is not the only thing that changes -
as the seasons change, so does our selection, to match the weather outside (whether we like it or not!)and the different
foods on your table.
