30th Jul 2022

Join us Saturday July 30 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. for a very special tasting featuring the wines of negociant/importer Mary Taylor.

Mary Taylor offers an tremendous introductions to all the nuisance and subtlety of European terroir at a daily drinking price. The wine growers Taylor works with are organic and biodynamic though many of them don’t have the funds to get certified.

Eric Asimov had a nice write up on Mary Taylor last October, by which point we’d already discovered the full range of Mr. Taylor’s extraordinary capabilities and enjoyed knowing “Hmmm and Yums” agreeing with Asimov’s always delectable descriptions and wise words, particularly when he says of Taylor that “She offers a simple, elegant solution, one that does not pander, condescend or dumb down.”

According to the Mary Taylor website, when Mary first fell in love with wine in the early 1990’s, it was the European classics that truly spoke to her and stole her heart. As a young professional selling French and Italian wine, first in the New York wine auctions and then as a merchant, she quickly learned to appreciate wine in the “Old World” way— not as a luxury good reserved for special occasions, but a living agricultural product that belongs to everyday life.

This awakening eventually led her to move to the storied region of Burgundy. There, deep in the heart of rural French wine country, her experiences living and drinking among the area’s independent artisan growers cemented her understanding of wine as a form of liquid culture, reflecting the people and places where it has been lovingly crafted for generations.
