Some of you may have met Ken at our events in the past (pre-covid times of course), and he stands tall here at Ginsberg+Chan with his thick-rimmed glasses and heavy British accent, often heard rambling on about the fascinating stories behind each producer. His passion and enthusiasm know no bounds - he is an avid wine geek and proud. This time, he has selected some bottles that are his personal favorites and we have again dedicated a shelf to his picks that are sure to be a delight to all wine-lovers or geeks. Read on to see what and why he has picked these bottles.
“I often admit to being a wine geek - it tends to be an occupational hazard when you’ve studied your WSET Diploma. I simply get a kick out of discovering something new, something different that piques my curiosity and defies my concept of what that style or regions’ wines should taste like. These bottles below are some of my more recent discoveries that I have been so pleasantly surprised by – such as Valentini’s Montepulciano d’Abbruzo Rosé (same for any of his wines even!), or Francois Cotat’s Sancerre – but every once in a while, there are some creature comforts that I just like to go back to. I don’t have a favorite grape or wine region, but drinkability is a must, so you will find all the wines below can be enjoyed immediately, but will also benefit from further cellaring. I hope you will enjoy the selection below the same way I do, and I have shared my thoughts (or ramblings) below to help guide you on your wine journey. If you wish to learn more about these producers, I am always at your disposal."
