Suburban Staff Picks for Wine of the Year

Each year here at Suburban each staff member picks a "Wine of the Year". It is something that we have been doing for a few years now. We set up a special rack in the front of the store to display them. We even have a special tasting called "The Many Faces of Suburban" to taste these wines along with the runners-up. Today, tomorrow and Thursday, we will be offering two wines selected by individual staff members as their "Wine of the Year. Then on Friday we will announce the Suburban "Wine of the Year" for the store.

What is really great about doing fun stuff like this is seeing the diversity of the wines selected. As a store, we have different staff members oversee different wine regions, so you will see really various styles of wine selected.

Enough rambling...today we offer Jay Roelof's and Fred Horowitz's individual "Wine of the Year". Fred oversees South Africa, Chile, New Zealand and Greece. Jay takes care of Champagne and Sparking Wines, New York and Germany.

Stick around for the rest of the week as for tomorrow we will unveil Jason Fiore & Michael Koehler’s picks...and do not miss Suburban's Wine of the Year on Friday!!!!
