The Good Importers
When I pick up a case of vino for friends, I tell them that they should pay attention to who the importers are. Their names are usually found on the back label of a wine. I am a big fan of the small, high quality importers whose wines will be featured on this blog. Like Michael Skurnick and Daniel Johnnes who import the petit chapeau, there are many others. If you get to know the good importers, it will be easier to pick out quality wines on a regular basis as their portfolios are excellent from top to bottom. Some of the importers you will see featured in future posts include: David Bowler, Maximum Wine Co., Neil Empson, Frederick Wildman, Fleet Street, Christopher Caanan/Europvin, Louis/Dressner, Vias, Montecastelli, Winebow, Leonardo LoCasio, Vin Divino, Polaner Selections, Eric Solomon/European Cellars, Tempranillo, Jorge Ordonez and many others.
