About Me

My photo

I moved to NYC when I was 19, and immediately began working full-time on my BA while working at Gotham Wines & Liquors.  Within a few months, I went from stocking shelves to being a buying agent.  I quickly took on more responsibility, where my marketing, sales and business talents helped me to eventually run the store as Director of Operations.

During my career, I have run many formal wine tastings - including selecting, pairing and presenting wines and other alcoholic beverages to many organizations. Topics have ranged from Rare Boutique Wines from Around the World to Wine & Chocolate to Great Wines Paired with Authentic Ethnic Foods.

My creative sensibilities have helped to start many wine trends.  I helped initiate local interest in lesser known varietals and producers. Often been quoted in the Wine Spectator, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wine and Spirits, Beverage Media, Food & Wine, for my recommendations.

Hold the Citrus please!

MOMO Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Marlborough New Zealand

If you are tired of what became the ‘typical’ style for a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc then it’s time for you to taste the MOMO.

This light colored Sauvignon Blanc from Wairau Valley starts out with aromas of stone fruit, followed by floral and mineral hints.

On the palate is clean and round followed by flavors of tropical fruit and a hint of grapefruit. Nice long grassy, herbal finish

A great refreshing glass of wine!
