Isaac comes from Portland, Maine and worked in fine dining there as ÒlocavoreÓ and micro-brew movements emerged. Authoring wine lists, conducting staff trainings, and educating himself on all aspects of wine, beer, and spirits, he found the beverage business to be an engaging, multifaceted field. In 2005, Isaac moved to New York and started working at a major wine retailer in the city. Before coming to 67 Wine, Isaac worked as a manager at two other wine stores and has given numerous public and private presentations on wine and spirits. He holds certificates from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust through the Advanced Level, having scored in the highest category for each section.
Isaac believes that in order to help customers navigate, most salespeople are able to understand and appreciate the wines from every major region. His favorite wines tend to be those that have a defined and distinct character, usually ones from high-altitude or steep-sloped vineyards. It is no wonder, then, that he is responsible for the Italian White category.
