Bart's Bio

Buyer for: Austria, Burgundy, California - Cabernet, Pinot Noir & Zinfandel, Grappa, Italian Red Wine, New Zealand, Oregon, South Africa

I sometimes shake my head in disbelief when I count the nearly four decades Iíve been selling wine. Much has changed since I began, and much of it for the better: thereís greater diversity of styles, and the availability of whatís out there is staggering. Yet even with over 35 years of experience, I still consider myself a student of the vine. Every year, every vintage opens up a new chapter to explore and discover. Not a day goes by when I donít learn something new, either from grape growers, winemakers, my ultra-knowledgeable colleagues, or the savvy shoppers that visit our store.

Over the years, my interests in fitness and nutrition eventually have led me to organic viticulture and winemaking, while my spiritual side drew me to biodynamic farming. If eating well is part of your daily regimen, so too should be choosing wine. When I see people making wine a part of their healthy lifestyle, I feel great knowing that Iím taking part in something positive.

Bart's Pick:

Domaine Nicolas Maillet M‚con-Villages 2012
Burgundy, France


Youíll love this elegant and very well balanced white Burgundy made from organically cultivated Chardonnay. The 2012 Macon-Villages has fresh and lively tropical, citrus and green apple aromas. Ripe pear and golden apple flavors cascade across the palate on a sheen of fresh acidity that creates a harmonious balance.

Drink it as an aperitif or serve it with the freshest seafood you can find: Right now, local fishermen have this great Mahi Mahi, which I like to serve with rosemary potatoes and roasted autumn vegetables.
