Being a wine professional in New York City presents me with different challenges, but the one I consider most rewarding is tasting and discovering new wines for my sections here at 67 Wine. Navigating through the vast numbers of city’s wine distributors can make this a daunting process, but most times it translates to new and interesting wines on our shelves.
I recently had the pleasure of tasting a few wines with Daniel Sutton, a representative from IPO Wines, a small wine distributor that focuses on wines driven by terroir, tradition and innovation. As always, IPO’s carefully curated selection of Spanish wines didn’t disappoint. Tasting the peppery 2010 Jiménez Landi Sotorrondero reminded me why discovering new wines is one of the most gratifying experiences of my profession — it was a wine that expressed place and tradition as interpreted by a new generation of wine producers.
If you sometimes feel jaded that many wines have no sense of place, I pass this challenge along to you: drink outside of the box, and not just literally. The next time you are in a wine shop, grab a bottle from that obscure wine region that catches your eye.
