Wines from Where?

Wines are now made in all 50 states – but would you know that by looking at a typical wine list or store shelf?

Andrew
Stover, the hyper-energetic millenial generation sommelier at two hip
Washington D.C. restuarants, is trying to change that perception.
Working with a D.C.-area distributor, Stover is bringing high-quality
and high-value wines from aorund the US to the DC-area market. These
include Arizona Stronghold from Cochise County, Arizona, and Sawtooth
Vineyards from the Snake River Valley in Idaho.

Let go your
prejudices. I did – I’d never heard of Maynard James Keenan, the rock
star behind Arizona Strongholds. I didn’t let that stop me from
appreciating these delightful wines.

You can read more about it in my wine column in The Washington Post.
