Wiston Arrives in NYC!
Frederick Wildman, wine importers into New York since 1934, had their annual tasting at the impressive Guastivinos last week. As the most recent addition to their prestigious group of wine suppliers, we were invited to join them and tell the sommeliers of NYC that the sun does shine in England and its wines are ready to create a new category on their lists. So we packed our bags, leaving the vineyards basking in record breaking September temperatures, to fly out and introduce Wiston to the East Coast. It went down a storm and we had great fun comparing notes with Hubert de Billy from Pol Roger. (We later wondered if Churchill had ever drunk Pol Roger on his visit to Wiston House in the 1940s and will be checking the wine cellar archives on our return).
