We're always happy when Robert Brownson from Farm Wine Imports stops by the shop to taste us on whatever is in his bag of wine goodies. Farm distributes the fantastic Louis/Dressner and Jose Pastor imports as well as a few of their own and some domestic gems. Befitting their name, all of the winemakers in the Farm portfolio believe that wines are made in the vineyard- which are farmed organically/biodynamically/lutte raisonnée.
We've featured many of their French and Italian selections before, but we thought it was high time we showcased the diversity of their portfolio. So, Robert will be here pouring some Frenchies (we just can't help it), but also some brand new wines from Spain, Germany, Chile and Oregon.
