Andrea Robinson Interviews Jack Daniels at the First Stop of the 40th Anniversary Tour

"I have known Jack Daniels and his partner the late Win Wilson since my earliest days as a sommelier. It was my great honor to be the first recipient of the Wilson-Daniels Master Sommelier Scholarship when I was studying for that test, and to work on the sommelier team for the historic Domaine de la Romanee-Conti tasting, which Jack and Win facilitated for the New York Wine Experience many years ago.

Grégory Viennois, technical director for the Laroche estates—which include the labels of Laroche (purchased fruit), Domaine Laroche (estate fruit) and Mas la Chevalière (the company’s Languedoc property)—shrugs in acceptance. “We need to be fatalists,” Viennois says simply. “If...

St. Helena’s Wine Distributors Wilson Daniels celebrates 40th Anniversary

"In 1978 Jack Daniels and Winston Wilson launched an innovative wine company with headquarters in St. Helena. Their concept was to provide small family-owned wineries — many of whom were unable to afford a dedicated sales and marketing team — access to important retailers, restaurants and private collectors throughout the United States. The idea took hold and helped fuel some of what are now the world’s most highly sought-after wine brands, including Hungary’s Royal Tokaji, Italy’s Biondi-Santi, France’s Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Napa Valley’s own Schramsberg. 'Our focus has always been helping bring together our iconic family-owned wine producers...
