Wine has always been a part of Costas Mouzouras’s life.  From early childhood in Cyprus, pruning, harvesting and stomping grapes in the family vineyard, to making homemade grappa, Costas was born with a fascination for how wine is made and develops, and how it brings people together.  
Today, Costas is the Wine Director of Gotham Wines a Manhattan wine store.  He frequently lectures on wine to industry professionals and amateurs, presenting real, down-to-earth, straightforward descriptions of wine and how it is one of life’s wonderful indulgences.

One thing led to another!

It all started with the left over zucchini Carpaccio with mint and lemon vinaigrette. I decide to pair that with an arugula salad (I make my own dressing) and chicken piccata. I use wine in my piccata sauce which it let me to open a long over due chardonnay sample that I had sitting at home.

The Jean de Rose Chardonnay 2008, imported by Gabriella Imports and soon to be available at Gotham, was a superb pairing. The notes of butter and the rich balanced palate made this wine a perfect pairing with my meal!

What a wonderful dinner!!!
