Do you think it is a good thing identifying clones (specific grape varieties) and picking certain types that are preferred?
Or do you believe in leaving the diversity of unidentified clones in the vineyard - adding to the unpredictable spice of life sort of thing?

Here are my thoughts and I would love to hear your thoughts as well.

I moved to New York City over 20 years ago from New Orleans, Louisiana with just a couple of pieces of luggage, tons of enthusiasm in my heart, and a never say die attitude. I did not have a “real” home growing up or sense of family, but found my family and home in this crazy city with the colorful wine biz . New York City has the greatest variety of the two things I love most: Wine & Characters. I’m here to celebrate the diversity of wine and the characters in the wine biz that cross my path in NYC – as well as me crossing their paths when I travel to other awesome areas around the world!
I have an electrical engineer husband, Ken, who is as nerdy about wine as I am, currently a Masters of Wine candidate, WSET Diploma graduate, and recently became the Wine Columnist for La VOCE di New York. I have over a decade worth of experience selling various wines from around the world in the Manhattan market, such as entry level large brands, small artisanal producers, and ultra premium fine wines.
Cheers, Cathrine Todd
