Last week, we had our New York City Summer Portfolio Tasting at a new venue on the edge of the Flower District called Wine Disciples. Martine’s Wines only has a couple annual tasting events for the New York and New Jersey trade, and this one was extra special — because it was my first! Tuesday morning I traveled by bicycle and a quick ferry ride over the East River into Manhattan to calm my nerves. Would anyone come on this first day of September?

It took me a long time, (mostly thinking without actually applying for…

There are a number of exciting new producers for us in the New York and New Jersey portfolios this Spring. Pair them up with the new vintages and wines from our long time favorites and it made for one excellent tasting at Corkbuzz Wine Studio. Romain Cornin from Macon and Jean-Sebastien Marionnet from Touraine joined us to showcase their latest bottlings. Young and…
