Interview with Ben Aneff, Managing Partner of Tribeca Wine Merchants

Tribeca Wine Merchants was founded in 2000 with a focus on providing the world’s greatest wines to passionate consumers. Partners Ben Aneff and Robert Groblewski founded the company. Before joining forces, Groblewski spent nearly a decade working in the fine wine business traveling with people like Daniel Johnnes, Doug Polaner, and Tim Kopec. Groblewski fell in love with Burgundy, Piedmont, and the Rhône Valley, but found it difficult to source great older wines. Thus, Tribeca Wine Merchants was founded with that in mind.

Somm Thoughts: Sarah Tracey, Wine Director at Rouge Tomate

I’m feeling myself drawn to lighter-bodied, lively, zingy reds that can take a little chill: Schiava, Zweigelt, Fleurie. After months of endless crisp whites (and more rosé than I honestly care to admit), I love to move more into red territory in the fall and winter as my ‘sipping wine’. But, we have had an extremely warm early autumn here in NYC, so I’m not quite craving the deeper, richer reds just yet.

Somm Thoughts: Interview with Thomas Pastuszak, Wine Director The NoMad

While I keep a lot of classics and old favorites in my rotations (Champagne, Chablis, Barolo/Barbaresco, Finger Lakes), lately, I’ve been drinking a lot of Northern Rhône Valley reds. I’m talking Syrah from Hermitage, Cornas, Côte-Rotie, Crozes-Hermitage, St. Joseph and the surrounding area.  There’s a lot of great value to be had from top producers in these appellations (around St. Joseph especially). In this cool part of France, Syrah is spicy, savory, mineral-driven, and very fresh. It’s truly the motherland for this grape.

Somm Thoughts - Ellie Bufkin of Mailalino

Like many, Ellie Bufkin came to wine through the restaurant industry—she was a college student looking to make extra money. Originally from Baltimore, she got her start at a restaurant there called Pazo where she discovered her real passion for hospitality and wine. Thus, she decided to pursue a career in restaurants by moving to NYC. For two years, Bufkin worked at Thomas Keller’s Per Se where she was exposed to one of the best wine cellars in the city, and some of the top wine professionals in the country. After she left, she spent a few years traveling around the country, learning from top sommeliers, only to conclude that while she loves wine from all over the world, she’s particularly fond of the wines of Italy.

Fruit Wines to Try This Summer

When people hear the word “wine” they automatically associate it with fermented grape juice and a great time. Although they are not completely mistaken, wine can be made from other fruits as well. As a matter of fact, as long as a fruit has enough sugar, its juice can be compressed and fermented into wine. While grape-based is still the most common type of wine, some fruit wines are starting to match their level of complexity, enjoyment and sophistication.
