Wine School - Session #23: Importers matter. Polaner Selections.
One of the main reasons we have access to such great wine in New York is thanks to a handful of importers. For too long, the importing business was dominated by massive companies who mostly supported just the well-known regions and large producers. As of recent, there are now tons of smaller importers who are committed to selling great wine no matter where it’s from.
Polaner is a company you can trust. Their focus lies mostly in France and Italy, representing some of the best, weirdest, and most exciting wines on the market. Whitney Schubert, Polaner’s French portfolio manager, walked us through some of her favorites.
