Transitions in the Washington DC Wine Scene

The wine scene in our nation’s capital
has changed dramatically this month. We’ve lost a beloved retailer, Mike
Tilch, of Silesia Liquors. Bell Wine Shop has changed hands as the
Luskin brothers, Bob and Fred, begin a slow exit from the M St NW store
they took over from their father in the 1960s. You can read about these
changes here on Washingtonian magazine’s Best Bites blog.
We’ve lost one of our favorite sommeliers, too. Michael Flynn,
who has run the wine program at Kinkead’s American Brasserie and the
now closed Colvin Run Tavern, has departed DC for a bigger challenge as
wine and beverage director at the newly renovated Mansion on Turtle
Creek in Dallas. I hope he took his Redskins jersey with him.
