Buyer of: Portugal, Loire, Beaujolais, California: Whites & Merlot, Israel, Sake, and Dessert Wines
Sadie has been a buyer at 67 Wine & Spirits since 2011, covering the wines of Portugal, Loire, Beaujolais, Israel, and California. She also is 67’s buyer for Sake and dessert wine. Sadie values wine for the many expressions, traditions and convivial aspects that surround it. She views wine as an important part of living well.
With a B.A. in Art History, and past experience in Art Marketing, Production, and Curation, Sadie focuses on the point in which art meets agriculture and business. The wines she buys are a snapshot of their region or country. She identifies wines that are regionally and varietally distinct, illuminating the producers and styles that currently define their category. Above all, she is a discerning taster with a skill for selecting quality and value, putting forward a dynamic selection of highly consumable wines for all occasions.
Sadie was early to recognize a trend in the improvement of Israeli wine and the unique aspects of its industry, and has taken the lead in 67 being the first wine retailer to have a dedicated Israeli section.
“I am honored to be a Buyer at one of New York’s oldest and most historic wine shops. The environment here offers maximum exposure to the wines of the world and the wine industry at large. It is a privilege to be in the presence of this caliber of wine professionals and customers who teach me so much daily.”
Sadie has been earned The Sommelier Society of America Certification Diploma, the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines and Spirits, and is a Certified Sake Specialist. Her comments on the outstanding 2011 Port vintage were published by The Tasting Panel Magazine in the feature Meet Sadie Flateman: Putting a Buyer’s Palate to Port (July 2013 issue). And, as an example of her broad range, She arranged the collaboration with legendary graffiti artist Cope2 for 67’s exclusive wine “La Caldera 67 Limited Edition Cuvee 2009”, bottled to commemorate over 70 years of 67 Wine & Spirits (noted as a Wine Enthusiast Magazine Wine Trend in the April 2014 issue).
