Meet Dhrubo
I'd like to introduce you to Dhrubo Mazumdar (pictured above), our new wine buyer! A veteran of Brooklyn's Slope Cellars as well as Fort Defiance, Dhrubo ("drew-bo") brings ridiculous wine knowledge and industry contacts to score those coveted allocations. In particular, Dhrubo renews our dedication to ferreting out the best small, under-the-radar--& not-yet-on-the-radar--producers. He's also a really nice guy. I hope you will stop by to say "hi" and to share a glass with him.

I am loving some of his new picks: ros├ęs that range from the elegant Menetou-Salon of Philippe Gilbert to the German Knauss Trollinger, which Dhrubo describes as "exploding in the mouth like a cascading waterfall." His $19 Gruner Veltliner, Bernhard Ott 'Am Berg' is proof that this varietal can have some memorable character without spending zillions. And, of course, his Lauer 'Barrel X' Riesling, explains why this varietal's popularity has surged in recent years. More to come every week. And I'm very excited to try his next picks.

Hope you're having an equally relaxing summer and are keeping cool with some crisp, summer wine close at hand.
