A Moment in Wine: Kanonkop Kadette (Cape Blend) Stellenbosch, South Africa 2016


My passion for wine had its roots in my art school years when I worked in the vineyards of New York’s Hudson Valley. Years later, after a three year tenure working as a taster for a national magazine, I was asked to recommend someone who could design and build a 28,000 bottle wine cellar for Lespinasse Restaurant at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. Drawing from my experience in design, construction and fine wood working, I undertook the project myself. That led to the successful installation of many residential wine cellar designs as well.

In addition to designing and overseeing every project, I continue to write articles, attend and host wine tastings and host a radio show on NPR, WHDD/ Robin Hood Radio.

I am fortunate that my work takes me to the wine regions worldwide, enabling me to continually enjoy and learn about wines and wine storage innovations. I look forward to including you in my list of satisfied clients.
