The pourers and wine reps are so gracious and understand that we are young people in New York, so we probably don't know a lot besides the price point.

I've learned so much about what makes different varietals unique. I am going to see wine stores in a whole new light now.

It's a rare chance to get intense, one-on-one time with sommeliers. It truly is special to see how much knowledge they have!
