“When I started working in wine in 2002 the perception of domestic wine had two expressions: buttery and tannic. You don’t need me to tell you this but that has been flipped on its head. An extremely exciting wave of young and interesting winemakers has taken one of the world’s best terroirs and is putting out wines that are fun, have acidity (that isn’t added), and there’s no butter in sight. That reputation and evolution applies mostly to west coast wines, but the rest of the US has been coming up with a shocking array of compelling wines, often using hybrids and sometimes mixing other fruits entirely. I think it’s easy to say that this is the most exciting time to be drinking American wines in a long time. And so, we have 20 (!) winemakers from around America to pour wines for us here in NYC.” Zev
