Beverage Media: New York State of Wine- Featuring our own Alexandra Schrecengost
“THE WINE scene in New York City is what I like to call ‘re-inventive’…” Wilson Daniels Director of Public Relations, Alexandra Schrecengost catches up with Beverage Media Group’s Roger Morris about current wine trends in the Big Apple!
“There’s something for everyone, in a really ingenious way. I’ve recently observed lists that are more of an eclectic melting pot, which go beyond French and Italian selections and highlight Greek and Spanish wines that pair especially well with food,” says Alex Schrecengost, head of PR for Wilson Daniels, an American wine importer and distributor that represents such heavyweight classics as Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Biondi Santi and Schramsberg. “There’s always plenty of domestic love from California, but Washington State is well represented too, and New York State is producing some world-class wines now. Even in wines from Italy, I’m seeing more and more variety, particularly in the volcanic Southern regions such as Etna,” she adds.
