Every time I open a bottle, I want to be taken on an adventure of the mind. I want to be transported to another place and another time . . . another world.

Every bottle is different. Every bottle is an experience.

I find the producers who make these kinds of wines and I become their partner in bringing this experience to you.

This is no manifesto. This is not marketing jargon in the hopes of selling more wine. Twenty-five years in the wine business has taught me that it all falls by the wayside after awhile.

I want you to taste what I taste. I want you to experience what I experience and find the joy that is in every bottle.

Many of the wines I work with are farmed either organically or biodynamically and are naturally fermented using only native yeasts, but that doesn't mean they are automatically good; the wines are good because of the blood, sweat and tears that are shed by the producers working with nature to make something great.
