An awesome flight at Terroir in Tribeca last night

There’s no two ways about it: New York is simply the greatest “wine” destination in our country. On any given night, whether its old Nebbiolo or funky skin-contact Natural wines you crave, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Last night I connected with good friends at Terroir in Tribeca where I got to taste two of my all-time favorite wines, the Galea (2003!) by I Clivi (Colli Orientali del Friuli) and Ageno by La Stoppa (Piacenza), one of those life-changers.

And there were so many other cool wines, at reasonable prices, that would have quenched my thirst for wine that could speak to me in lyrical tones.

Marco Canora’s meatballs are as good as when I first tasted them at the original location on East 12th in 2008.

Speck and fontina sandwich rocked.

And a special thanks to sommelier Will Piper, who was always one step ahead of our table, offering just the right wine in perfect synch with the rhythm of our evening. The dude really knows his stuff and he was right on at every turn… loved it…
