Our friends at legendary importer Louis/Dressner Selections will be in store tomorrow pouring a slew of fresh, bright and honest wines! They have been at the forefront of sourcing some of Europe's most authentic wines since the early 90's! Talk about ahead of the curve! Calling them legendary is not hyperbole. They were instrumental in shaping our own philosophy on wine.
From their website: "We have no brands. We are not looking for them. We do have a group of often fanatical growers who are doing their best to make wines that are original because they are honestly crafted. These might seem old-fashioned, but in the present context it is almost revolutionary....
There are no gobs, no exaggerations, no over-this and over-that. We don’t have fruit bombs. What we do have is a group of growers who work their vines and make their wines with honesty, passion and humor."
